Grrrrrrr... 40r
I think it might be. It seems that would come to £825 + tailoring. What do we think the going rate for MTM is? Surely, there are viable options for £1000? And then we aren't far off bespoke, but that brings waiting time and traveling cost into the picture. I am in Norway.
I am looking for a current dinner suit with - Peak lapels - One button closing - Traditional jacket length - No pocket flaps - Traditional U-shaped vest - High/traditional-waisted pants with pleats - Potentially with side vents Am I blind?
I would have liked more assertive cuffs and I think the ticket pocket is unnecessary. Other than that, very good looking.
I like the look (thought) of black bow, bund and "boots".
See!? I told you it would be great! The back issues stem from the shoulders, yeh?
I just think it will be hard to find.
As to your questions: 1. Indeed it is and you should expect to. Common alterations include taking in the jacket body and adjusting sleeve length. Better quality suits can be altered quite a bit, but realize that there will be balance issues if you take it to far. The hardest alteration is adjusting shoulder width, it will most likely cost more than the coat to have it done right, avoid. 2. Frankly, I would go for a black dinner suit as your first. See also...
Off-black, I lol'ed
Hey! You should have a look through the black tie thread, if you haven't already. http://www.styleforum.net/t/275650/the-state-of-black-tie-your-observations I couldn't get the first link to work, but the second one struck me as possibly a wool blend. You should avoid those.
