Satin peak lapel. If you are wearing a tux, you might as well be slightly more proper than non satin lapel. I just got one made!

I would like to get a tux too but it cost a bomb...haha

A shiny 1 button sounds nice too.

If you're going to wear with jeans, I suggest the regular blazer with peak lapel. If you're going to dress up and head to more formal party events, go with the tux. I sold my Dior satin lapel blazer because it's just odd wearing it out unless there's a Xmas or holiday party... and even if there is, I prefer to wear a full suit.

i'm not sure...it really depends how you like and how you fit better on you...i always wear tux with jeans...and feel too formal to wear the whole suit. As i said, it really depends your character and where do you wear it~

honestly, you need both. several of both!

kevin said...

That's true yoyo! But it's just so hard to get good blazers and tux from Dior now and I hate having to search through eBay or Dior homme msn group all the time just to find the right style AND fit AND in good condition. I often look at Dolce Gabbana, Versace, and Cavalli now.

Fuck it, guys. Dont get a tuxedo or a suit from Dior, you can always get a bespoke one which will fit you better than a dior ones.

IMO, spend your money on the rare items. get the rare, one of a kind dior jacket or jeans, which you cant get your tailor to make a similar ones.

monsieur AG said...

Alex...so what are the jackets that you think that its one of a kind??

basically, everything in this whole can be replicated...its just whether u want the original or a replica...the cut of DH is the most attractive part of the whole thing.

I do agree that bespoke ones fit better but the time and effort for you to go and make one is a chore...

yoyo said...

maybe this one?

issa said...

yoyo said...

i meant maybe alex was thinking about that kind of jacket, one that would be hard for a tailor to replicate. yeah that particular one is kinda flashy! haha.
