Righty ho ho ho .... It's that time of the year again and the Christmas Ball is approaching fast. So, I have sorted out my gown, etc etc. Now I'm about to buy the OH tuxedo off the net and after measuring him over the weekend ( ) I have his trousers size but I'm confused over the size of the jacket and so I'm here for some advice. I buy my jackets and tops according to chest size, how is it with men? How do I work out what size of jacket I need to buy for him? by measuring his shoulders or all around his chest? I had a look at all his jackets, including his uniforms, and they're all slightly different sizes. His civvy clothes are mostly size M. Also, looking at the prices on the net I can't figure out whether they're good quality suits or not, what should I look for when finally purchasing one? As with regards to shoes, some sellers offer deals where patent shoes are included. I always found them quite tacky, should I just buy him leather shoes? Is there anything else I have to look for before buying the tuxedo? I just want him to look smart and classy but all within a reasonable price.
