    Hi all, thanks in advance for your input. Going to look at this Tux tomorrow. It will be my 1st/only Tuxedo for a long time. Assuming the measurements work, a few questions.

    This is the current mainline (high quality) label? Large Red Logo, correct?

    Was told it is BASE GREGORY - Slimmer but not super slim?

    What would be a fair/good price to pay for this Tux (It is brand new obviously)?

    Looking at the up close picture below...is the fabric texture acceptable for a true classic black tuxedo? It looks to have a little bit of a pattern in the fabric. It is 87% Wool 16% Mohair

    This is the mainline Isaia. I prefer the Base Gregory to the Base S, it fits slimmer but not skinny.

    The pattern is fine, it is not loud but adds interest to usual black tuxedo.

    Isaia suits usually cost around $3000, but what I consider fair is what I can afford to pay.
