    Thanks to all the information on this site, I am more confused than ever.

    I have a few months before getting married and am looking for a Tux. I am a big fan of going with the blue tux but will also be happy with a black one. Not to sure about shawl collar. My budget, not including shirt shoes etc, would be 700 or less.

    I recently went to the hugo boss outlet and tried on the Rolo/Ward Tux, at first I really liked it. It was a preferred slim cut, a bit different, and fit like a glove. Then I started to think about the forum and I couldnt do it. The tux was the anti-traditional tux..shiny skinny fit, lapel notch piping..etc

    Now I'm looking for a tux, that can be classic yet a little different within my budget....I like the indochino blue tux, thoughts? Ive also ready many mention suit supply, and am still doing research on the forum on that one.

    Thoughts or ideas? TIA

    Suit supply makes a 1 button. I didn't know they did a 2. Why not just get the 1 button model?

    A single breasted tuxedo should have only one button if you want classic.

    Im on the fence with the one button at suit supply bc of the lapels.

    They seem a bit too big for my taste..but may need to see it in person (unfortunately not in nyc)

    I have no qualms with a one button tux

    "Black tie requires no thought" [​IMG] some here might disagree... I've been thinking about my wedding tux for 6 months now, still haven't decided on all the details...

    I like the lapel width on the Suitsupply tux, but I like wider lapels in general. The buttoning point seems a bit high for my taste (on the video at least)

    The lapels on the SS tuxedo are not distastefully large. The lapels on the Hugo Boss are distastefully small.

    My confusion is what direction I want to go...

    Do i go strict traditional or a little modern.

    The SS tux in the video looks great,,,

    I agree with the HB tux having a distastefully small lapel

    Maybe SS tux it is???

    I mean, I cant go wrong with it, just hope i like it once tried on. I am not in nyc to see it in person so a bit hesistant
