Whatever you choose to do, veer towards getting something custom made.


I'm a fan of midnight - I have a three-piece tux made with Smith Woolen's midnight blue mohair.


From what I've read about Ercole is that they tend to err on the traditional side of styling, especially on a first commission. Have you found that to be the case?


Especially with a tux I want to go more contemporary (higher armholes etc.)

Shawl midnight blue DB for maximum style points.

did you end up making a purchase? I'm in SF as well and looking for a tux in the $1-3k range. Any advice?
