    Evening Guys,

    I've seen this really nice TF tuxedo that im thinking of getting for NYE this year. The jacket has a button on the right, with the hole on the left, as all men's jackets button up. However, the only picture i can find of it is a girl wearing it on a red carpet? (Please see attached picture)

    The size is labelled as EUR44 (UK/US34) which is how a man's jacket is sized, right?

    Can you guys clear up which gender this tuxedo jacket is for?

    Look forward to hearing your answers.

    Thanks

    If it's anything like the more androgynous haut couture, they often did a sizing for women as well. Dior Homme made what was known in the day as Petit Taille with a black label which was effectively incredibly exclusive menswear for women.

    To me, this looks like it might be exactly that, what with the black label and particularly in the 44 size...copying the tradition taken up by Hedi Slimane at Dior. As far as I'm aware I've never seen a TF suit in anything below a 46.

    The seller say's they bought it off yoox.com, in the men's section. Would yoox get something like that wrong or is it just a small men's size? I've seen someone else selling a EUR44 (UK34) tuxedo jacket on ebay so i know they do exist.

    thanks
