Mens turquoise slim fit tuxedo fully satin with shawl lapel. Four piece set. This fashionable tuxedo is made of a luxurious rayon viscose/ dacron blend fabric. Coat has a one covered button front closure, shawl lapel with thin trim. Side vents. Jacket has two front pockets and one chest pocket. Jacket pockets are usable but come sewn shut. Gently cut open to use. Fully lined. Very high quality and well constructed. Comes with tapered trousers and matching four button vest. Also includes a matching bow tie. Pants are a six-inch drop. Subtract six inches from your jacket size to determine your pant waist size. Meaning, if the coat size is a 40R the pants waist will be a 34R. Pants come unfinished at the bottom so that you can hem at your proper length. This tuxedo is ideal for weddings, proms, black tie, and other formal events. Dry clean only.
If you see the coat and waist size together it's because the tuxedo or suit is "nested"
"Nested sizing" is also frequently referred to as a 6" drop size scale. This means whatever the jacket size is the trousers will be 6" less. For example a 40R jacket only comes with 34" waist trousers (no mix and matching). A size 42R would come with 36" waist trousers; a 44R would come with 38 waist trousers, etc.
Some of our tuxedos or suits come with pants that have an adjustable waistband. So when you see a range of sizes, for example "27-28-29" or "28-30" waist pant, you can adjust the waist to fit those range of sizes.
Even if your sizes do not fit a perfect 6 inch drop, your local tailor can usually do minor alterations to have the tuxedo fit you properly. For example, suppose you are a 40R jacket but have a 32 inch waist. In this situation, your tailor will take your 34 waist pants in to a 32 waist. Suppose a different gentleman is a 40R jacket but has a 35 waist. In this situation, the tailor would then let the waist out at the seams to accommodate the 35 inch waist.
The length refers to your overall height. It will determine the length of the jacket and the sleeves.
Short 5'7" and shorter
Regular 5'8" to 5'10"
Long 5'11" and taller
These measurements are not perfect for everyone, though, so be aware of your body proportions. For example, if you are 5'10" but have a long torso and long arms, you may want to go with a long.
