MTM at that price would be your best bet you can then specify what you want.

j. crew not an option as i'm in london..

anyone know about dior homme classic tux? canali? erm zegna? as the thread suggests i'm after a slim fit classic tux..

M2M..sure, but from where?
post #34 of 39
just a bit of info for the forum..

i'm 5'7 about 140 pounds..
DIOR homme: lovely lovely suit, love the simplicity of their classic tux but - 48 too tight but nice on shoulders; 50 too big on shoulders but better throughout - in short did'nt fit
Lanvin: seemed to fit quite boxy, suppose this is the lanvin silouette..didnt love it
Canali: did not have my sizse, but looked quite classic

anyways..i'm still on the hunt for a tux that is'nt huge on me (short fitting) and i'm more towards slim that otherwise..

any suggestions greatly appreciated

I'm a thinner guy in need a of a tux for an event in early December. Any thoughts on this one? http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...xx-xx-xx.index I'm perfectly fine with notch lapel and 2 buttons. My max budget is probably about 500 including the accessories and tailoring so I am a bit limited in choices. A slim fit is important for me since I am skinny and more classic cuts leave me drowning in fabric

I wouldn't count on that one bein as slim as you think, just because of the name. If you want to order from online, I'd go with this perhaps:

http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...xx.esn_results

It retails for $800, but you can always find deals from places like Macy's that should bring it down at least a couple hundred (see if you can find a working coupon and open a credit card with them). You can always size down one and then do about $50 worth of tailoring to get it just right.

that one is probably a a bit over my budget, even with a sale since I'd still need tailoring and accessories.

I also like to wear slim fit style tuxedo but i am not a big fan of peak lapel, notch lapel is not traditional and it only looks good in a suit. Whereas the shawl lapel tuxedo is the option in my opinion to go with

Paul Stuart offer one in their Phineas Cole Line. IMHO it is much too fashion forward
with hacking pockets:

I own a classic (notch lapel) Ivy Cut Tuxedo from Paul Stuart that is over 40 years old.
I still looks good. That is an advantage not buying " fashion" as in slim-fit but sticking
to classical styles.
