Super 140’s merino wool fine formalwear at $149.99? How can this tuxedo be priced so low? What’s wrong with it? These are the questions we usually get when we show off this pure wool tuxedo. The answers – yes, because we made a stunning buy, absolutely nothing. Let’s start at the top. What does super 140’s mean anyway? The “supers” system refers to the width of the yarn used to weave the cloth. In and of itself all it means is the higher the number the finer the yarn. It does not mean the cloth is finer or better or that the garment is made better. After all, the yarn is just the starting point. The yarn needs to be woven into beautiful cloth which needs master craftsmen to engineer the perfect fit, along with master tailors and quality chest piece, pads, and other components to craft a tuxedo well worth owning.
But in this case, you, too, will agree super 140’s at $149.99 is a remarkable tuxedo buy.
The cloth IS finely made, the garment IS well engineered and the tuxedo IS crafted carefully. This is truly an entry-level designer tuxedo caliber garment without the designer label (or price tag). Think of it as a loaded Camry – 6 cylinder, leather interior, moon roof, high end stereo, the whole shebang…for the price of a stripped Corolla.
Classic 2 button, notch lapel, no vent, besom pocket jacket with an extravagantly finished French-trimmed, pick stitched interior.

Suspender buttons are sewn into the waistband and the pant has a 1.5” letout for further alterations. Satin stripe down the legs. Pants are pre-hemmed at either 30” or 32” inseam.
