o Fabric While looking out for buy a Tuxedo suiting fabric you need to look out for those materials that are guaranteed to spring back into their normal shape after you wring them. There are many suiting material that are tagged with the super 100 label which just means that the fabric yarn has just been twisted about 100 times rather than the normal 6080. o Pant fitting and length of sleeves To check the pant fitting you need to be able to slip in two fingers behind the waist while you are trying on the pant. If you can slip in your fingers without any problem then you do not have to worry about the fitting again. If you are thinner do away with pleated pants however if you are on the chubby side you can do with the pleated pants. The length of the jacket sleeves needs to be long enough so as to cover the tip of your thumb when your hands are by your side. If this is not the case you will end like a wannabe who borrowed his brother`s suit.
