    Thanks. I am really deciding if it is even worth it. Most people don't wear Tuxedos anymore on Cruises and I don't really go to many black tie affairs. But I have always wanted to have one just in case.

    I'm going on a cruise in December as well (over New Year's Eve), and I faced the same decision. I ended up with a Joseph a bank signature peak lapel tuxedo for 300. I probably would have preferred suit supply if I had known about it at the time. But if you can't get a good fit, then it probably isn't the way to go. Unfortunately, in that price range, there are very few options for a peak lapel tuxedo.

    The 40L fits good, just a little loose in the jacket. They charge 27 dollars to alter it. It is not bad and the pants for the 40L are near perfect. I am still deciding. My wife and I take cruises regularly so I guess it would be considered a good investment.

    They sell the tuxedo-trousers separately. Productcode "B1109".

    Nice, but what about the Jacket? It would be great if they sold that separately.

    Loose where? Loose in the shoulders is unfixable. Loose anywhere else is fixable.

    for what it's worth, i purchased the washington peak lapel tuxedo in the spring (may have been last season's collection since the picture on the website is different).

    i wear a 40R in other suits so i purchased the 40R. the jacket was fine. the waist was very suppressed so i would have had to let it out a bit. the pants were beyond alterations. i have large soccer thighs, and the pants made it look like i was wearing leggings. so i ended up having to return it.

    i ended up buying a peak lapel tuxedo from the wizard of aahs for $300ish.

    If the shoulders fit on the 40L, and the pants are exactly right, you're hemming and hawing over some nips through the body? I don't understand your problem here.

    So the shoulders work on both the 38L and the 40L? I would think they could only be perfect on one of them.

    You are right, I am being picky. I just need to decide if I really want a tuxedo.

    Since you mentioned that you go on cruises often, I would go for it. I only have one upcoming cruise planned, and I ended up buying one. Since you cruise often, can you comment on the percentage of people wearing tuxedos on the formal nights?

    To be honest, there weren't many men wearing tuxedos on our last cruise, but the ones that did looked great. That's what got me thinking about wearing one because they seems to be enjoying the moment. My wife and I have had a very stressful year dealing with a health scare and being so busy that I wanted to make this cruise something special. I have plenty of suits, many of them MTM, but I never considered a tuxedo.

    If you're used to a lot of MtM, I doubt you'd be satisfied with SuitSupply's value tux. Personally, I would make sure my Tux is the best I can get-- they're worn on special occasions in which you want to look good, after all.

    Do it. You will really enjoy the ritual aspect of putting it on - cuff links, studs, bow tie, etc.
