Last Friday, we stopped by My Suit to pick up Mr. S’s gray two-tone tux jacket. A while back, I described Mr. S’s custom tux process—the meticulous measurements, endless options for finishings, and his large boo-TAY. At the time, we bought Mr. S’s black tux pants and matching black jacket for a black tie wedding we attended. However, for our wedding, Mr. S wanted something a bit different—a dark gray jacket with black lapels.
Two weeks ago, we went through the whole process again for the tux jacket. We met with Andre who re-measured Mr. S’s top half and showed us the different gray fabrics we could choose from. Once we settled on a gray silk wool blend, Mr. S selected the peak lapel shape (a more “aggressive” look according to Andre), silver paisley lining with plum piping, and the font for his monogram on the inside pocket.
The final result:
