Buying a Smoking for my own wedding - Fabric?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been looking into different fabrics like Guabello, Loro Piana, Cerruti, Ariston etc. and I've almost found something I like from each one, but can't seem to decide. How would you rank the different makers of fabrics? Loro Piana seems more expensive than the rest, is it worth the extra $$$??

I guess you mean Tuxedo/Dinner suit by Smoking (how they call it in Italy). I would rate Guabello, Ariston, Loro Piana and last Cerruti in that order. Most of Guabello stuff is great, Ariston source from many different mills including Barbera, but I am only familiar with their 2x2 fabrics. Loro Piana has some great fabric and others not so, guess those are 2x1. I would leave Cerruti altogether, mostly 3x1 stuff, used in RTW and MTO. Are u only looking at Italian fabrics? Are this all labels on RTW stuff? Guabello is mostly used by Hugo Boss.
