Tuxedo? Which one?

Some of our favorite wedding Tuxedo looks. Are you asking yourself do I want Black or Blue, A Peak lapel or Shawl Lapel? We offer a wide range of fabrics and styling options but which one is best for you?
The classic. A Black one button peak lapel in a luxurious Italian wool Super 150’s fabric by Caccioppoli. This is timeless and appropriate for formal weddings and black tie events.
The blue shawl lapel tuxedo. Still a classic but with a bit more attitude. This one button shawl tuxedo with jetted besome lower pockets uses Super 130’s wool by Vitale Barberis Canonico. Shown here with our custom white stud front formal French Cuff shirt.
Ah yes. For the groom that wants some flair. The Burgundy Tuxedo. This one button shawl lapel tux is wool & mohair. It’s crisp lustrous finish is hard to resist and it is very resilient and resistant to wrinkling. Making it an ideal fabric for tailored clothing and also perfect for Summer. We offer wool & mohair in a variety of colors from the finest Italian Mills. Stop by and check them out today!

Flannel for Fall

It may be Indian Summer here in San Francisco but we’re warming up to the Fall season with this light brown suit in a Super 120’s flannel wool by Vitale Barberis Canonico
The light beige or you could call it Oatmeal has a nice light texture and nap to it.
At only 270 gr it is the perfect weight for the Bay Area and a Fall wedding. Just giving it the right amount of warmth and texture without making the wearer too hot .

Spring / Summer Sport Coat

With the warmer Spring and Summer season approaching we are excited to deliver an incredible sport coat for a good client of ours. For this he wanted something with a loose weave that would be light weight and breathable. We suggested the summer jacketings bunch by Caccioppoli Nr. 3801 in fabric 380158. This amazing cloth did just the job, at 380 gr. and wool and linen blend had the perfect balance of breathability with a loose weave and slubby texture.
