They were very peronable, polite and professional at Ernesto's. I thought maybe the waist of the jacket needed to be taken in just a little. The tailor (one of the...

I have the misfortune of not receiving a tuxedo from a local retailer as promised. I have a black tie event on New Year’s Eve. I purchase another tuxedo (not from this vendor who is now forever banned from my business). The suit I purchases is in need of some minor alterations. Sleeves shortened (non- working buttons) an inch and trousers hemmed. Are there any tailors in Philadelphia who do good work at relatively reasonable prices and “might” be able to work with my...
Someone was gracious enough to take the time out to list shoe manufacturers and seperated them by their level of quality. I bookmarked the post but lost it due to a computer issue. I did search and seach and can't seem to find it. Does anyone have a link to that hierarchical list? It would be most appreciated.
I'm taking a step back.... I was set on purchasing an evening suit but after visiting SF I had to take a step back as multiple replies questioned my decision. Being inexperienced with evening suite quality and styles I feel it would be wise to at least entertain the opinions of others. I am in the market to purchase and evening suit. I've bounced around on the internet as well as a few forums to understand what to buy and the proper dress. I have a general...

If you aren't in a hurry, you should probably follow dah's advice above and look at other options. I bought because it had the particular features I wanted (grosgrain, sb, peak lapel) and I was short on time. Also, the price at the time was dropped to about $300. The price will drop to about that in a week or so (the salesperson gave me...
Quote: Originally Posted by Ich_Dien Your best bet is vintage. I really wouldn't go full out on the white tie, as unless you're in the habit of attending balls frequently, you shan't be needing it very much. $600 is low. Considering you need 2 x shirts, 2 x collars, 2 x bow ties, 2 x jackets, 2 x waistcoats, studs, perhaps even a top hat and a pair of gloves. It's either going to be incredibly shoddy new, or impossible to find vintage in your size at...
