    Navy Tux/Dinner Jacket Search

    Hi Friends,

    Getting married next spring and starting to think about what I am going to wear...current plan is the bottom half of the tux I own + a navy shawl collar tux/dinner jacket.

    I am very strongly considering/leaning custom made, but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. I am a bigger guy, so staying away from the more narrow or skinny collars (i.e. Bonobos).

    I don't know how it would look on me, but this SuitSupply jacket (which they don't have in my size and aren't going to restock) is my platonic ideal:

    J. Crew has a decent looking jacket, but looking to avoid that route--don't love their fit on me and ideally want the collar to be black:

    Assuming money isn't an option (but ideally less than $1K), any suggestions?

    Coincidentally enough Tim from S&M just posted a shot of a navy dinner jacket on his insta story. Maybe try shooting him a message for some details?

    Here’s his insta


      Get a solid black tux, or at least pants, for cheap(like jcrew or bonobos or nordstrom sale) and go custom for the navy dinner jacket.


        I was going to jump in and suggest SuSu until I saw the 2nd sentence of your post. I'm actually doing exactly what you / others suggested for my wedding -- going with my black traditional tux and then using a white dinner jacket (from SuSu bc they had legit 1 left worldwide in my size in the jacket I wanted earlier this summer). That saved me a bunch, but I also had started looking at custom. Custom formal attire unfortunately runs at pretty nasty clips from what I could find, mostly because cheaper mills don't always produce unique/nice fabrics that you'd want for an odd dinner jacket. Best of luck!


          Since you have time to spare, you can wait for SuSu's winter outlet (early January) to see if they offer a blue dinner jacket. They might even have the one you wanted.

          I don't have much experience with custom, but my friends in NYC swear by these guys:
