FWIW, I have the suit supply tux and think it's an excellent deal.

I don't think you need go to extent of the patent shoes. A black shiny Oxford whole cut would be more than sufficient.

something I remember reading about - a plaintoe wholecut bal is slightly more formal than a plaintoe bal with seams (and slightly more formal than a captoe bal). A wholecut bal with a mirror shine is acceptable (marginally) with a dinner jacket.

How's the padding for SS suits?

Looks very dashyat. Some jackets do have that "elaborately hand wrought" feel to them while others don't. I can't explain it myself. But the fact that suit supply uses VBC signals they're serious.

That looks the business. Glad the Suit Supply route was fruitful!

If you've seen my latest post in the Latest Haul thread, here are the fit pics of my tux from SuitSupply!

Some inside details a peek at the cummerbund and shirt studs.

I personally think the tux, shirt and the whole do-up fit me quite well. I'm 181cm and I went for a 38R tux (W32 trousers) and the in-house SuitSupply alteration tailor had to make a few alterations for it to fit me as well as it does, for instance:
- lengthening the sleeves (2cm in front, 1cm in the back)
- take in extra cloth behind neck and centre seam (to clean up back) and below my armpits
- let out by 1/2" at the waist where my belly is (HAH)
- hem the trousers


For the money that I've paid I'm very very very happy with the SuitSupply tux although I'm rather peeved that it has side vents - but then that's probably a good thing because I tried to ask them to sew it up and it looks really weird with my ass sticking out, breaking up the sleek look.

I'll probably write a post about the level of service at SuitSupply on Vigo Street (perpendicular to Savile Row!) sometime in the future.
Thoughts?


That's a very nice DJ for the money. Seems like Suitsupply is moving up in the world.
