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.

Someone posted a pic not too far back of a tan, possibly hunting, coat with this type of tab closure - would love if anyone can find it I've had no luck. French cuffs on Cifonelli. I love the first one jacket, the second one is really bizarre to me - check out the double button at the...

I would try Audiogon and AVSforum - there are folks there with multi-million dollar theaters. Hell some of the speakers are over $100k alone.
