Renting a tuxedo is like taking your date to McDonalds, you just don’t do it. And do you really want your boys in the same pants that another guy has had his boys in? Didn’t think so. Tuxedos are the pinnacle of sartorial expression and as such deserve your respect. Whether you’re wearing one to a black-tie gala or your own wedding, investing in one isn’t just the right thing to do it’s the only thing to do.
Here are some great off-the rack options to consider when purchasing your next or first tuxedo. If off the rack isn’t right for you, there is always our incredible made-to-measure program. Either way, choice is plenty and prices varied.
Knowing the difference between a Made-to-measure and bespoke suit is only the tipping point. Understanding the complex relationship between a client and his tailor, well that’s where the true meat and potatoes lie.

Master craftsman Konstantine Malishevski’s intensity for his chosen profession is unmatched. The native Ukrainian (who speaks the precise English of old) is an encyclopedia on the subject of tailoring, effortlessly rocking any discussion on the finer points of suiting, fabrics and finishes.
His experience is ultra varied, interesting, and runs from running his own atelier to textile buying to executing unparalleled made-to-measure services. After completing two-and-a-half years of study (plus a two year internship) at one of the most prestigious institutes in his home country- eight months of which were devoted to learning to sew by hand, Konstantine relocated to Canada. Retailers were soon captivated by his unique skills, seriously rare in the North American market.
Konstantine’s grasp of technical construction would impress anyone on Savile Row. He describes himself as “old- school, but hip” and champions longevity and personal style in suiting. He always works collaboratively, communicating with clients, recognizing that their participation is key to the success of GS’s MTM program. The end result defines perfection- on a completely individual level.
Pitti Uomo, where real men wear real clothes. Year after year, season after season sartorial gents from around the globe descend up Florence in one of the biggest and best displays of menswear the world has ever seen…and to partake in Italy’s biggest menswear trade fair. “The streets are blanketed with beards and impeccably tailored suits. The Pitti menswear scene quickly breaks down like a high-school cafeteria: There are the menswear mainstays, like Milanese boutique owner Lino Ieluzzi, the rugged types with topknots and shearling jackets, and the eccentrics, like one particularly colorful man wearing mismatched shoes.” – The Cut
