no fucking clue about this brand but I love the 60s looking geometric patterns in the lining
the roped and slightly extended shoulders really add some weight to my silhouette (not everything can be soft shouldered and Italian right?)
also I love the lower button stance that buttons right at my belly button
some of you might like dual vents on a tux but I am glad this is ventless
overall the only things I would change about this jacket would be to give it red Dracula esque lining, turnback cuffs and slightly wider lapels, but I honestly don't think anyone at my senior ball would notice these details anyways...
I swapped out to fabric covered buttons I sourced on the bay
this is also probably the most accurate photo of the actual color of the suit...
(still haven't pressed the shirt)
now that the photos have finally loaded i am going out into the field to find some kiton
Ian, that fits you great. Well done. You need a cummerbund or vest, though. It's not OK to go without your waistband covered with a SB tux. And you need better shoes, too, but that's already been said.

Bro, that jacket is not good. Those lapels are dated, and not in a good way. If you had them narrowed it might be better, but it's probably not worth spending that kind of money on what's probably a polyester jacket, if it's washable.
Oh, but the cufflink box is awesome!
