Will you look sharper in this Geoffrey Beene tuxedo
than a “no-name” tuxedo? Very likely and here's why. This
tuxedo is made from a very nice tropical weight (year-round)
plain weave, silky smooth, super-100's grade pure wool. It
is tightly woven and very crisp. Beene's tuxedo is generously
cut to provide you with comfort while dancing the night away. The
overall fit is relaxed and elegant without looking stiff. Maybe
that's why Geoffrey Beene gets to put his name on this tuxedo.
Coat details: 2-button notch lapel, besom
(2 slits, no flap) pocket, satin lapels, satin buttons, no
vent styling. Coat has 2 interior breast pockets and
one lower cell phone pocket. Jacket is fully lined with
a distinctive silver herringbone lining. Sleeves are
lined with a contrasting white stripe lining. As sharp on the
inside as the outside!
Pant details: Double-pleated slack is lined to the
knee for comfort. Made like a dress pant, no “sliders”
at the hip. Pant does have 2” of extra fabric for a
tailor to make adjustments. Satin stripe down the outside
seam of each pant leg.
So who is Geoffrey Beene? A med-school dropout, Beene
made a name for himself by creating firmly engineered, minimalist
designs that were known for being clean and strong. Beene
thought the inside of the garment should be as interesting
as the outside. Perhaps this is why rich contrasting
linings are used in this jacket. Beene died in Sept.
2004. He won eight Coty fashion critics awards, and
4 awards from the Council of Fashion Designers. Pretty
good for a guy who started out as a window dresser in L.A.
