Grey Tuxedo

Yes it’s ok to do formal in Grey. This grey sharkskin wool three piece tuxedo is in Super 120’s VBC fabric and is wrapped in smooth Black satin on the lapels, jetted pockets and buttons.

The finest “natural sharkskin” fabric has been historically made of all natural fibers, being some mixture of mohairwool and silk.
Sharkskin is a smooth worsted fabric with a soft texture and a two-toned woven appearance.
Sharkskins’ two-toned woven appearance is achieved by basketweaving, thereby creating a pattern in which the colored threads run diagonal to the white fibers. Because both fabric options already have a relatively smooth texture, the combination results in the finish for which sharkskin fabric is known.

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 .
