    Shawl lapel is not more formal than peak.

    I do not believe that is accurate.

    I prefer the cummerbund vs. waist coat duel!

    From what I've read about Ercole is that they tend to err on the traditional side of styling, especially on a first commission. Have you found that to be the case?

    Especially with a tux I want to go more contemporary (higher armholes etc.)

    did you end up making a purchase? I'm in SF as well and looking for a tux in the $1-3k range. Any advice?
