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..
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:
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.
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
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. Edited by comrade - 3/7/15 at 11:11pm
