I got my suit and is currently being altered. The tag says Marco Valentino - Milano. The other tag has the model info. It says MODELLO: VENEZIA, TESSUTO: 819010-3. I noticed with other suits it actually says MODELLO: MILANO. Is this suit mislabeled?

Tonight I purchased the MV Tuxedo in a 38S. Will let you all know how it fits out of the box before I get it tailored. I didn't see this thread until I paid through Paypal, but I got a decent deal on it still, using the "best offer" option on ebay. Paid $285 for it.

Here's a link to it: ebay tux

Wouldn't worry about it - the tags aren't the suit's strongest point.

I actually looked at that one, but the satin on the chest pocket seems odd to me. Let me know how it looks live once you get it.

+1 on the tux
I'm thinking about buying one in the next few weeks as well, so please let me know how you like it.

I will, I have a black tie event coming up so I will try and post some pics of it after I get it tailored.

I ordered a point collar golden fleece BB shirt with it ($36 from B&S) and now I just need to find some reasonable shoes, bowtie, a cummerbund and cufflinks.

What I don't know is ... are studs a "must-have" with this tux? From what I understand, the BB shirt has mother of pearl buttons but I have no clue if those are suitable to replace studs.

Are there any good fit pics of the slim cut suit?

How is the fit?

I just got the Marco Valentino Tux in today via UPS from Jeff at Wizards, so I need a critique!

Here are some pre-tailored pics but first impressions are:

a) breast pocket is false, I did not know this, so now my pocket-square that is otw won't be of use ...meh

b) length seems way too long for a 38S, but hoping I can get it tailored, please let me know exactly where the bottom of the coat should be in relation to the butt

c) construction seems fine and fabric is great, although I was expecting it to be a different feel given the label of "super 150s" pinned on it (my HF ltd suits feel finer when running a hand over them)

I will post more after it gets tailored but I'd like some input from anyone on current fit and whether or not the problems can be fixed

MV Tux, SB, Peak Lapel

Are you sure it's false and not just sewn shut?

It looks too big and too long. Send it back and size down.

I'll ask the tailor about the pocket but I'm not going to mess with it until he sees it tomorrow.

Unfortunately I don't have the kind of time to send it back and wait for another. By the time the new one gets here I won't be able to get it tailored properly before the upcoming black tie event. But that's the risk you take when you buy online.

Can the length be tailored? As for overall too big, I dunno ... if I go a size smaller the jacket would pull pretty hard across the chest.

Are you sure that you're wearing the jacket properly? The pictures from the back suggest that the jacket is a size or two too large, however the front shots show that it's pulling. The jacket doesn't fit around the collar well at all, the sleeves are monstrously large, jacket for too long, shoulders too wide....it's far too large to be altered without MAJOR surgery.

Take measurements of the jacket and compare them to your other suits that fit, the MV tux could be mislabeled as a 38S

You should send it back and ask Jeff to possibly cross ship the new one, rather than wait to receive yours and then send a replacement. At the same time, letting your tailor know that you're in a bind and need a quick turnaround for the alterations would help too.

Good luck.

**I'm almost 100% sure the pocket is just sewn tightly shut. Careful removal of the stitching is all it takes. Don't do this if you're going to send it back!**


Matsuya, the fit looks good overall, some cleanup around the armpits of the back might help, otherwise it looks good.
