Went to LS Mens in Manhattan yesterday to look at some Tuxedos Izzy had in stock. He had a few that would work, but one that stood out. Shawl Collar, 1 button, pleated trousers. I think he said it was made by Hickey Freeman (but I cannot honestly remember). 1) He would have to re-cut the trousers from a 41 to about a 36 (because the coat is a 46 and I have a dis-proportionate physique). Because they cannot be opened at the side for some reason, he would have to take the room in by, among other things, adding an additional pleat, making a 2 pleat into a 3. Does this sound crazy? Or is it something that will only be noticed by someone on this board? 2) The material of the coat and trousers is textured, not the typical flat smooth tuxedo material. It seems to have almost a basket weave to it, it is reminiscent of a black on black bird's eye (but not exactly). Has anyone heard of or seen anything like this? Thinking of buying it because 1) anything I get would have to be re-cut, and I trust him, 2) the price is not outrageous (about 6-700 all told), 3) the material is different without being too non-traditional, 4) he can give it to me in time for one event (end of the month), 5) when my wife saw it she went from "why do you need to buy this, you can buy one for $200 as JAB" to "wow, I really like that". Should I do it? (I am in my early 30s, attorney, 2-3 tux occasions per year...) Thanks in advance for your help. You guys have never steered me wrong before.
