I think quarter line if it’s gonna be a three piece and you’re gonna wear a waistcoat. Plus the fabric Im using is pure silk so it’s gonna run hot
Get that waist coat backless...

Perth, Western Australia. We have been fortunate enough to party since July. Again most isolated capital city in the world. Had strict lockdowns late March which was eased after four weeks in.
No resurgence recently? Lucky you!
Here in america they posted the worst daily infection rate ever on Saturday. But not to worry, I’ve been reliably informed “we are rounding the turn”.

As of yet no but we have reopened the borders to other states so that remains to be seen. I should have replied it was a private party on a private island trying to gain some sense of normalcy

Those seem to be popular during COVID!

I believe no one here needs bowties but if you do, Drake's archives sale have them for 15 quid each.

I'm also going to ask this question on the Ongoing Bespoke thread, but thought I'd post here as well for others' thoughts.

I'm slowly building my bespoke wardrobe. I have a grey suit and a navy suit. My thoughts are that the next logical addition would be a tuxedo. My reasoning is that the bespoke suits are of far superior quality and fit overall to my OTR wardrobe, and they are special, and a tuxedo ought to be the same. I was thinking of maybe getting a sport coat first, but since I could, conceivably, mix the trousers and jackets of the grey and navy suits, I've got that base covered for the time being. And, I've already many other OTR suits and sports coats to fill out my wardrobe. Anyway, would appreciate your thoughts if you have any.

My current tuxedo is a Joseph Abboud. It's just okay, but it serves its purpose.
