Hi, I found a discounted Brioni tux jacket at the Neiman Marcus 40% off sale in DC. The trousers were not with it, and I may go back to see if I can get a further discount, as I am positive that it WAS once part of a suit. In any case, I went to Field's Custom Tailor (nice guys, BTW) and found a Holland & Sherry 95% Cashmere/5% wool fabric that fairly closely matches the jacket. The catch is that the trousers would cost $750. Is it just me, or is that an extremely high price? I'd really appreciate advice on how to handle this - should I just return the tux coat and resume my search, or would it be possible to find a competent custom tailor in DC to match the tux jacket for around $350?
