This is a good buy--not great, but good. I do not say this to discourage you, but rather to be frank. If you need a tuxedo for a one-time deal, where you may where it again, then I recommend you buy this tux. However, if you constantly need a tux, then I recommend you pay another hundred or two with a higher wool weight.
Bottom line: it would have cost me more than $400 to rent a tux for a week (out of town use), and this enables me to re-use it at the Governor's mansion, etc. for a lot less.
NOTE: This does not come with a shirt, cuff-links, tie, or vest. You may, however, get these separately through Overstock, which I recommend. Additionally, after taking the pants to the tailor, I was told that the waist measurement is off by 1.5". I recommend you purchase a little larger and have it tailored to be certain it measures up (pun intended). Finally, the pants MUST be tailored, as with traditional pants/slacks.
This tux fits so nice. I have some Italian-cut business suits, and wanted the same look in a tux. It shipped fast and the trousers (of course) needed tailoring just for the length. Before buying I was measured at a men's clothier, as I had lost weight. I'm 6-2 and the 44L fits swell. Material weight is just right and quality of stitching, material, etc. is as good on the inside as outside. I was the best-dressed guy at the June wedding, including the groom.
Immediately after I ordered, I called Overstock customer service, as a coupon did not flow through checkout. As always, the rep was efficient and helpful and applied my discount. Thanks Overstock.
At first I was hesitant about this tux not being wool. But the material looks and feels good, and wears well.
Also, I retained the box and shipped the tux to-and-from Minneapolis (the wedding location) as I didn't want to pack it on airlines and Amtrak. I've worn this Giorgio Fiorelli since, and it still fits and looks terrific. Re: buying a tux over renting, one can't go wrong with a product and price like this. And I think if more men owned their own tux, courtesy would return. And we can all get restaurant jobs if the economy really tanks. Hope this review helps.

Amazing for my fiance for our wedding this August. It is great quality for the price, I will always send people towards overstock, and especially this tuxedo for the price. It's cheaper to own then rent. I would recommend this to anyone! I can sew, so hemming this was no problem and the suit looks fantastic on my future husband. Thank you so much!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality!
The drop is 6 inches which caused me to have the pants tailored to let out the waist - I am getting a little more portly than I would like. The suit looks good but the material does not feel natiural. I hope to get a few uses before the material begins snagging and pilling (artificial materials seem to do that to me).
Hey, the price was good and I want formal wear for a few upcoming events. If I have more formal requirements, I will invest in a higher quality (and therefore cost) tux in the future
The suit was very thin, cheap quality material. There were no vents on the sleeves, and the satin on the lapel was not very shiny. I thought I might be getting a bargain, but it is just in fact the same quality as the price. Cheap. I would recommend this for someone who is not very particular about their clothes. This would work for some folks. I tend to be a little more picky about suits, but I was willing to try ordering this to see what you get.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? correct; accurate color

How accurate was the sizing? correct; accurate sizing
I purchased this tux for my husband a few years ago and it's only been worn twice. After those two wearings, the stitching on along the seam on the side of the trousers is completely destroyed. This tux looked great the first wear, and after the second we had to throw out the trousers. I would attempt to fix it but the seam is right on the black strip so it's a little more complicated than I would like. I recommend this tux if you really only need this for one or two wears, otherwise, best to spend a little bit more dough and get a better quality suit.
The package arrived on time, unharmed. The jacket was what my fiancee and I were most interested in, quality and size wise. This jacket fit extremely well and the material was very well stitched. The pants were extremely long and ulnhemmed at the bottom, this was done so the suit could be taken to a tailer and be done professionally. All in all, the tux is very well done, and my fiancee and I are very happy with this product. We saved a lot by buying instead of renting.
Had to have the length of arms altered since it was a little short even though it was a 42L the cut didn't fit exactly right in arms, but there was plenty of fabric to make the alteration. Good quality for the money. Would have paid more renting a tux, and I own this one.
What does it mean when you say "No Belt loops"? Does this mean I cannot have belt on?watchforless on Mar 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
