Longtime lurker, first time poster. I am getting married at the end of the summer, and planning to have a dinner suit made-to-measure for the occasion. I will likely get a decent amount of use out of it moving forward, but hard to say exactly how much. For those of you unfamiliar with the SS dinner suit, here is a link for reference: http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-black-plain-tuxedo-p1109a/P1109a,en_US,pd.html?start=13&cgid=Suits&prefn1=style&prefv1=Classic|Evening
As a number of posts in this forum have observed, it has most of the classic features I am looking for: peaked lapels, grosgrain facing, etc. However, they do not offer a waistcoat (even MTM) which is a tad annoying. Still, for the price, I can't complain too much.
Question number 1: Anyone have any experience with SS MTM tuxedos? Are there features that I should be asking for in particular. For example, I know their OTR tux has vents, I will request that mine does not.
Question number 2: I am going midnight blue rather than black. I will be seeing the fabric in person on Friday, but right now the only thing I have to go on is pictures sent by the MTM specialist of a midnight blue dinner suit they made in the past and the following suit, which uses the same fabric: http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-blue-plain-london-p2529/P2529,en_US,pd.html?start=9&cgid=Suits&prefn1=style&prefv1=Classic Does anyone think this is not dark enough, or is that just the lighting?
Thanks in advance for your time,
