This is a factory-fresh, never worn, rental quality tuxedo. Designed to be purchased by rental stores, musicians, entertainers. Rental quality tuxedos are hard-wearing, abuse-taking, pure wool formalwear that are designed to look like new even after 50 dry-cleaning cycles. The slacks have a side tab adjustment allowing the pant to be brought in or eased out over a 3-inch range. The pant also has a standard 2 inch let-out in the back to allow a tailor to ease the pant out further. There is a tradeoff with rental quality tuxedos. Rental formalwear has an internal “armor” which allows the tuxedo to stand up to daily use and abuse. This armor makes the tuxedo stiffer and heavier than its “retail” counterpart like our Haspel tuxedo. Lastly, rental quality tuxedos do not have buttons on the sleeve which makes it much easier for rental shops to alter the sleeves without having to remove and re-sew all of the buttons.
After Six tuxedos are a great option for frequent users, for those who need separates, or for those who fluctuate in weight. All in all, a solid choice.
