Cheers, you took the words out of my mouth. @Sebastian_Flyte The fit pic of the model looks terrible, besides, it's semi-formal wear. Thanks anyway. I went to the cheap men's clothing stores today. JAB. Their tuxes were awful. SA told me they never carry tailcoats in that store, but I tried on their tuxedo. Even a 38, which should be a size too small for me, had the shoulder pads extending far beyong my shoulders. Divots! The peak lapel version had grossgrain lapels which was nice, but the fit left so much to be desired. Men's Wearhouse. No formal wear in their store either, but they had a cheaply made CK tux that fit fairly useably on the shoulders, sizing down to a 38. Unfortunately, notch lapel and they were trying to sell it for $500. So, the hunt continues.
