It was only a little prick. (against nudists who pretend to wear the armour of chivalry and the oppression of freedom in interhuman relations)

Have to agree with this. When Chris was making my wedding tux, we looked at both. Eventually decided on a satin. The grosgrain just didnt add much. Did go for a mohair midnight blue suiting -- and it looked spectacular.

I personally believe one's tux is an investment piece. If you don't change body shape much, you can get a lot of use out of it over a decade or two. The styling should be classic enough to never become dated. And it is when I wear black tie that I really want to look my best.

Little pricks are best left alone, IMHO.

Again, thanks to all who have indulged my request with deep, meaningful responses.

And that is why you answered, I guess.

You are welcome, that philosophical advice was for free, btw, in every sense.

GQ has a style guide out this month, it has a section on tuxedos.
