After Six, like the car companies,
has a single chassis with many different models. So it's
most important to discuss the chassis and you can see the
different models (1-button vs. 2 button, etc.)
After-Six makes tuxedos
for the rental market. These are hard-wearing, abuse-taking,
pure wool tuxedos that will look like new even after 50 dry
cleaning cycles. These tuxedos are sold as separates so you
can choose any size jacket and any size pant - the cloth
is guaranteed to match. 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" let-out in the
back to allow a tailor to ease the pant out further. The tradeoff,
however, is a stiffer garment than a tuxedo designed for a
single owner. This internal "armor" allows the tuxedo
to stand up to daily use and abuse. Also, these coats do not
have buttons on the sleeve (this makes it much easier for rental
shops to alter the sleeves without having to sew on buttons
After-Six tuxedos run slightly tighter than our other tuxedos
so if you are bordering two sizes, choose the larger size.
After Six tuxedos are a great option for frequent users, for
those who need separates or for those who fluctuate in weight.
After-Six also has a wide variety of styles to choose from
that you simply can't find elsewhere.
