More than anything, it just doesn't flatter you - you are a thin guy, go for a slim fitting blazer. Personally I'd skip the brass buttons too.
Wow, the retail price makes no sense to me - $600 for the jacket and $260 for pants? They look fine but it would have to be much closer to $400 for both pieces IMO to make it any kind of value. At almost $900 you have a lot of other options.
I have 3 pairs of horse-bits which I wear regularly, they get compliments and are comfortable. I find it hard to believe they are handmade though? They crank a lot of these out every year...

I got my first premium shirt recently (Truzzi) and I can see from how it is made why it costs more than an average shirt like something from Theory or the online MTMs. I get what PT is saying too, wouldn't want to have to pull the Rolls up to more...

Ditto, I appreciate you taking the time to explain even though you are mostly correct in that I don't understand

I'm still not sure if it's a suit or tux in the video I think the main thing I want to find is the vest. Finding a similar suit/tux shouldn't be too hard. It's a clearly a suit - the first thing you look at is the lapels, are they grosgrain or satin? If not, it's not a tux. You do see some more...
Is that a real price?? The GW was never rare at least not in New England. That's '70s muscle car pricing. We had this exact one btw, same color inside & out, when I was younger.
I have an AC tuxedo and love it - their jackets are one of the few that fit me perfectly OTR so quality and SF approval take a back seat. The average person will think it is very nice too. I saw a great AC linen SC recently at Nordstrom's and was glad they didn't have my size in stock... I would have considered full price.
