    Could you guys make a video on casual gentlemans fashion? As a student I don't want to wear a suit everyday but I'd still like to dress classic and fashionable

    Hi gents,

    I’ve noticed a great looking Swedish shoe brand called MYRQVIST. Can you guys review them? All Goodyear welted! Beautiful as well.

    I like the two presenters format, but both of you should look at the camera more often, rather than talking to each other. i feel like I’ve just walked in on a well researched conversation, rather than being presented information.

    Can we discuss how much nicer faille (grosgrain) is for lapels and other detailing than satin? I feel like it's a much, much, much more elegant choice, at any price point.

    I'll take very respectful exception to the statement you can "just sell" a suit you own after using it, should you need to. Yes … you can, but only for a fraction of its original price. It's hardly even worth selling, 99 times out of 100, and the only reason I'd give them away is if they no longer fit, were damaged, or I just no longer had the space to store 'em…

    Quick correction, The Black Tux Tuxedo Jacket is Fully Canvassed, so quite literally the opposite of glued/fused… love the video but feel like Sven goes in to this with his mind already made up and not neutral.

    I am a long time fan of this channel. I did indeed enjoy this video and its unique presentation. The subject matter as well was different than usual. That is meant as a sincere compliment. However, as the votes are now in, I will be moving on as the format goes from the usual 15 to 20 minute upbeat informational setting to a 30 minute discussion. Take care Gentleman. I have enjoyed much of what you've done in the past.

    Isn't it about time fashion and style "gurus" such as yourselves came up with something NEW. I'm sick of everyone either looking like clones of 1950s bank clerks or sacks of potatoes..

    Women's fashion and style has been innovative and moved forward. All you ever do is reference old tired "classic" (meaning BORING) norms, while snydely mocking, well everything, unless it's old.

    no matter how bad the quality might be, or how much it deviates from classic formalwear, @ 7:31, the way the tuxedo fits Preston, is better than anything else I have seen on him (i.e. jackets that are 2-3 sizes too big or pants flopping around). ofc, the jacket here is a bit long and there is room for tailoring the sides, but the way it lays on his frame is decent when he stands in a neutral stance.

    dark blues and blacks don't look all that great in my opinion. i am referring to preston's tux. and raphael, you agree with this point.
    it doesn't have to be dark blue. anything that is super dark and is adjacent to the colour black looks a bit off.
    it may not necessarily be a mistake, but some ppl are okay with that colour combination and a small group aren't.

    My dad never let me rent. He said a gentleman should always have a tuxedo. Renting one two or three times would be enough to buy a decent one of your own. I've had a tux in the closet since I was a teenager.

    You both succeeded in removing any
    Desire for me to rent a tuxedo again lol. Last time I rented a tux I was in my early twenties and was poor. For Those who see no value in buying a tuxedo to maybe wear once a year at absolute best I would say it still makes no sense to own and unless financially you do not mind spending good money to wear something maybe one day a year and hopefully you don’t gain too much weight from year to year where it wouldn’t fit anymore.
    I would say if you cannot afford to buy a tuxedo because you would only wear it maybe once a year and is not worth the cost in this example, I would then suggest rather investing money in a good black suit that you would wear from time to time mixed in with your regular work wardrobe as an alternative and just avoid wearing a tuxedo if you can help it

    I rented a tux for a potential son-in-law. He looked great in it. If he had been an actual son-in-law, I would have bought him a tux. My advice is if you have any chance of wearing a tux more than once in your entire life, buy a 100% wool tux, and get it altered as required. However: if you are a skinny kid going to the prom, you are likely to gain weight over the rest of your life; in which case just rent one. And if you need to shop secondhand, you have my blessing. For decades I had a used double-breasted tux, but eventually outgrew it. Given the tradition of tuxedos, wearing a used tux can have a certain appeal, as it has an existential (if unknown) history that a new one lacks. And this is a very personal opinion, but the current generation of short-jacket-low-waist-tight-pants tuxes/suits/ dresswear are 100% aesthetic trash. Avoid them at all costs.

    Recently I saw that Luca Rubinacci of Rubinacci does not show as much cuff as you guys most of the time call the norm. I guess this is a more classic way. What do you guys think?

    I purchased a black tux from MW. It took a few fittings but at the event the tux held its own with any other tux. The event was at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago and filled with people who knew their formal wear. I am happy with the tux and know that I will only wear it a few times. I would never rent a tux from anyone just for hygienic reasons alone.

    Forget online…No quality, horrible fit and way too pricey. Brick and mortar family-owned and operated and a formalwear shop that stocks their own inventory. Slim fit classic and modern fit in stock. Top-quality, great price's Tuxedo House if you're in the Maryland area. Perfect every time that a groom can feel and try on INSTOCK.
