Which tuxedo option would you pick?

Any criteria you can think of applies! I just have a budget of around $500-600 and I've done the research on what style I want - the two linked below seem to be the best of what I can get; please let me know if you have other suggestions! I just know nothing about clothing quality, etc. and have more than a few black-tie weddings coming up. I have my own wedding, too - I'm wearing a peak lapel and I'd like to look different at the other weddings, so I'm going with the shawl collar. I like the black tux option, since I can go into Nordstrom, but if the Indochino quality is much better, I'd go with that. Which of these two would you choose?

I don't know much about tuxes to actually give any help sorry but indochino being bad is such a common thing here that it has it's own sticker

spier and mackay might be worth a look, though they're definitely on the upper end of your budget if you include alterations I don't think they have ready to wear shawl lapel tuxedos actually, but they offer them for MTO which starts at $673

black tux also sucks

zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago
Damn how so?

Bigelow44d ago
cheap materials and construction, it's the same shit as your typical cheap suit rental places like men's wearhouse
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago
so best bet would be to get a high-quality, but used tux on ebay?
B
Bigelow44d ago
they couldn't even get the fit right on their model, look at those shoulders

yeah. ebay is the way you gotta know your measurements though, so measure a suit jacket, sport coat, or blazer that fits you well and go off of that, if possible
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago
yeah I think I'm gonna go to a tailor to get measured
B
Bigelow44d ago
honestly getting your body measurements is not as useful as knowing the measurements of clothing that fits you well when you're looking on ebay people will list "this jacket has 18" shoulders" not "this jacket will fit a person with 17" shoudlers" yknow
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago
ahh okay that makes sense I do have like 3 different size jackets - one's tailored but still
B
Bigelow44d ago
if I were you I'd post em and get feedback on what fits the best like this then measure that and use those measurements to search on ebay
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago
word yeah I'll do that - I gotta get one of them tailored too then I'll do that If I just bought a jacket that’s high end, how hard would it be to find pants (in-person) to match or that look good?
B
Bigelow44d ago
not recommended. buy as a set same goes for any suit
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn44d ago

I'm not a tux expert so I'll defer to others' advice but I know Zegna makes good stuff. If you end up going for it I'd try to offer down to 200 or so

Make sure the measurements are solid. A drop 7 is higher than normal
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn43d ago
The brand was on that list that Michael sent and the measurements do line up What is a drop 7? Oh I see
A
awburkey43d ago
It means the difference in jacket and pant size is 7. 6 is more typical
Z
zerodarkwntrgrn43d ago
Let me double check but the measurements for the pants seemed to line up too Says waist 34” with 3” to let out, I’m a 34 in normal jeans/khakis The measurements give room to tailor too Free return so I think I’m gonna pull the trigger
