Part due to reading Styleforum, part due to appreciating classic style, I'm faced with a fashion dilemma. My wedding is coming up and I want to buy a tuxedo for the wedding and for use next time. I just got a quote that a Liverano cost US$7,000. Well, that money is going to the car.
So here I got a Brunello Cucinelli for US$1,400 in the color (midnight navy), fabric (wool and cashmere aka Skyfall) and size I want! The only problem, two classic flaws - the lapels are not in black and it's a two button.
What y'all think? Forgive myself for breaking two classic rules to get the rest of my preferences in a good price?
By the way, I really don't know why Brunello Cucinelli, whom I believe to be one of those brands who believes in classic style, break those rules. If it was Tom Ford, I understand. But does a brand like Brunello aim for fashion forward to get that additional market share.
