I needed a tux for my teenage son to wear to several functions, and for the price this Peak lapel, one button classic tux is a great buy. Sizing: I ordered a 36R and a 38R, but received two 38R's. One was too big, but the other fit very nicely, so the sizing does vary. My son is 6' and weighs about 140 lbs with broad shoulders. He normally wears a 38 R in most suit jackets that have a "tailored" fit. As I side note, Overstock.com's customer service was very helpful and facilitated the return of the larger 38R. Material: The labels on the suit say it is 100% virgin wool, super 140's. All of the labels that I could find say "Milan Italy"; although none specifically say "Made in" . I mention this because in the Q&A section there is a question about where the suit was made and one response is Italy and another is China. The material of this tux, compared to a Signature tux that I purchased from a retail store (for more than double the price), is very nice, but it is a lighter weight and slightly lessor quality. Construction: The stitching and lining on the jacket look nice and are professionally finished. The lining is a complimentary grey color, is smooth and sized correctly with no budges or gaps. There are 4 buttons on each sleeve that are decorative, but do not have working button holes. There are numerous slit pockets inside the jacket, but there is not a button hole on the lapel,. The pockets on the outside of the jacket are the "slit" type and are trimmed in satin or satin like material., and the jacket has two side vents. The pants have a 7/8 inch satin (or satin like) stripe down the leg and suspender buttons on the inside of the waistband; even though, in the Q&A section it says they do not. The pants are lined to the knee (it feels like polyester) and have a 1 1/2 inch waistband that is satin or satin like. Conclusion: This tux is worth more than it costs. It is well made with attention to detail; and most importantly, it fits my son well, and looks very nice. The money I saved on this tux will be used to purchase the necessary formal accessories. In addition, Overstock.com's customer service was very helpful and courteous in returning the duplicate 38R that was sent. Overall, an excellent buy and good experience.
This fabulous tux was sent instead of the 2 button Mantoni I had ordered, however it is such a wonderful tux we kept it. Ordered the 36R for my 5'10 slender/athletic son(130lb), the fit was perfect (leg length with be altered of course). The wool fabric is outstanding, very light and high quality, great cut and falls well. This price to purchase was the same as renting- a no brainer! Thanks again Overstock!
My son loved the style. Found it a little big and not as slim fit as he would have liked (but he likes things tight). Had to return the 40R for a 38R which fit but I wonder if I should have gone down to a 36R. But it was very cool looking and fun style and came boxed well and in a timely fashion.
