I have the Marco Valentino tuxedo. It fits slimmer, and the arm holes are medium-sized (not too low or too high) which is actually a good thing for me. The lapels are great and the jacket is clearly canvassed. I find it to be a good value, but the construction does not stack up to other top makers I own (Isaia, Corneliani, Zegna). The trousers, in particular, are a bit on the weaker side. The clasp and waistband just don't quite get it done (but then I'm comparing...
I would add that the two best rewards cards, particularly if you travel frequently, are the SPG Amex and the Citi Premier Pass Elite. Leverage on these is around 3-5% depending on how well you spend your points, which compares favorably to almost anything out there.

Depends on the purchase. Consultants optimize the points. If only debit cards had rewards, I would use those.

Anyone have any experience with the raw denim? Looks kinda nice.

I grunt, sweat like a pig, and drop weights (only on dead lifts though -- lowering max weights slowly is dangerous for your back). I actually like when other people do these things, because it makes the gym seem more like a war zone than a country club. Good motivation. DO NOT CURL IN THE SQUAT RACK OR I WILL EAT YOUR CHILDREN.
