I live in Seattle, traditionally a pretty progressive and contemporary place. I've got a gala to attend later this year, and in anticipation bought a YSL Notched Lapel Tuxedo on Gilt (Link here - http://www.gilt.com/sale/men/buyers-picks-1746/product/169935067-yves-saint-laurent-wool-tuxedo). I had the tuxedo tailored, and I'm pretty happy with the fit. Having said that, I realize it is notched lapel tux which is not ideal... Having said that, I definitely liked the cut and material.
I have yet to buy the shirt, cufflinks, cumberbund, bow tie, or shoes. But today I stumbled upon this Gucci tuxedo jacket:
Now I realize this is totally loud, but it fits my personality pretty well. I think this would attract quite a bit of attention, and I'm alright with that - provided I can pull it off.
The facts are that this is a pretty progressive and contemporary scene... What do you guys think of the Gucci Jacket vs the YSL?
Also - open to suggestions on shoes, tuxedo shirts, suspenders, cumberbund, and bow ties. Totally new to all of this - so feel free to be as open and thorough as you'd like...
All feedback is appreciated, and while I really do want to rock this Gucci jacket, I know that this is the right place to vet these sorts of ideas.
Thanks in advance guys!
