    I am looking to get a tuxedo for my upcoming wedding and then use thereafter maybe two-three times a year. I have a well recommended tailor from a friend in NYC that can do a MTM half-canvas super 110's for $545 or I can go with the Benjamin Sartorial, which is full-canvas super 140's for $575. I am wondering if that additional step up in quality is going to be worth it for something I plan to use for the long-term? I am assuming I will have some further alterations on the Benjamin so it will cost a good deal more in total after all is said and done. Anyone have thoughts on that Benjamin Tux and the fit/quality lately?

    For the extra $30 I'd get full canvas.

    There are a lot of elements here, but in the long run the $30 won't mean as much as a good fit and quality. How does the shoulder look on you for both garments? How do the fabrics compare in look and feel? 575 Fully canvassed sounds like a great deal if those things are right.

    $575 is too good a deal, it is MTM at best.
