        I’m not pretending to be rich. You are. The Venn diagram of people who want to buy this, can afford it and would ask for opinion of randoms on LULZ has zero overlap.

          You don’t think European uni students post on this board? Most of them buy cheaper ones and some get them rented but I understand someone would be interested in a name brand white tie and is weighing his options on a Laosian crocheting forum

          stupids like you are the reason why /fashion/ is the gayest forum on this whole gayy website

            >European Uni students are wearing bespoke penguin tail tuxedos and come to LULZ to find out if spending daddy’s money on one is worth it
            people with money don’t care if it’s worth it and won’t be asking /fashion/’s advice on the matter

            >thinks these students are rich
            Dude, they are regular students but it’s tradition to wear this shit to galas and graduation. You sound like an absolute mutt too

            Do Europeans wear suits like this? Why?

            It’s tradition among students and in academic circles to wear this to certain occasions. I’m from Iceland, where it’s not really a thing, but we had loads of Nordic student programs where Finns, Swedes ect. would dress up like this and get absolutely shitfaced with us, all while dressed up like fancy penguins

            stupid, op is asking about a 10 thousand dollar suit. Not some cheap rented shit for drunk students to trash.

            It’s only x10 the price of a normal off the rack suit. You might buy one as a student but there are various occasions after graduation you are expected to wear one, and let’s face it you’ll only need one for life. Only issue is weather it’ll fit you your whole life

    Idk just take an old relatives. You’d be surprised how common they were back in the day, and probably with equally good if not better craftsmanship too. Like some of this tailoring looks ridiculously mid for being $10.000

        Literally my white tie suit is just my grandfathers from his oxford days with a new shirt. Because you wear this shit so infrequently that as long as you store it well enough it will be preserved great.& OP, If you dont have that kind of family just go to estate sales and shit. Or go to a good tailor and get one made for you. Do NOT spend $10.000 on this shit though. Please. For the love of God.

    the question is why would you want to spend this amount of money on a standard size garment if you could have it made to your size by a tailor?

      Won’t designer RTW generally come with better quality materials than you’d get from bespoke for the same price?

    Go to a third world country, or rural place in japan, where you can get a real suit that scream QUALITY, made of exclusive wool, nicely tailored and fitted especially for you and only you while not breaking even 1000$
    Hell, ask for a handmade tag with the tailor handsign, so if anyone asked you where you get yours, you can simply said, "its a handmade by this guy, and this guy hardly accepts any commission, he only make 1/1 pieces"
    And BOOM you’ll be the coolest larper in the room, instead of getting mass produced shit.
    Act like a REAL exclusive, by getting an exclusive shit, and not by getting shit than anyone can just buy off shelf

      What is the situation where this is worn that a regular tuxedo would not do?

      The thing about bespoke is that it usually takes forever, like 6 months. A nice RTW suit can get tailored in a week or so.

      Any tailor recommendations in or near Tokyo? Think I could get fitted there and have them mail me it when finished?

        Lol getting bespoke done in Tokyo is the same as New York or Saville Row, most of them you cant just walk in: you have to do appointments and they have test you then they accept you as a client.

          >"i…uh…bought my suit in asia…"
          Sorry bro, you won’t come off as "the coolest guy in the room", you’ll come off as a sex tourist.
          That being said getting a suit tailored in asia is pretty normal but it better have a cool story about your backpacking adventures, the time you lived in Japan or how you had time to get one on your business trip.

          skill issue, that means you have a poorgay face and cant carry the suit, i unironically got a "rich af asian conglomerate face" and can get into any cesare attolini shop wearing a black shirt, a hecking pajama pants and sandal and people would actually believe i wear their stuff everyday.

            Lmao at the seething ricecel. You don’t have a "rich af asian conglomerate face", you look like a bootleg ricegum trying to overcompensate for your hollow personality. Not surprised vendors let you in when you look like an idiot with your money. r/hapas af bro

      You’re 100% correct, paying 10k for a non tailored suit/tuxedo makes no sense.
      The only thing that Im going to say is I think that these higher end ralph lauren products, they pretty much work as a middle men, they have real artisans doing the stuff for them and then you pay for the additional ralph label. I know that they do that for some of those native American stuff that that they sell.
      So yeah, don’t pay the lauren tax, simply go directly to the tailor.

    yes, you should spend 10k on a suit you will wear a few times while looking cringe and try hard, and which will lose nearly all of its value.
