Does higher the price means higher the quality when buying a tux?

Many people wonder whether there is difference in quality between tuxedos that have high and low price. Truth is that there is wide choice available out there, so it comes to you to spot the differences between different types of tuxedos. Important thing is to find a tux that will match both your style and your budget. If you pay attention to the details of low-cost and high-priced tuxes then you can make a better informed decision.

Usually tuxedos that come in lower price are those that are made for the wider public. These are so-called ‘ready to wear’ tuxes created in larger quantities. Low price tuxedos are usually made of polyester, synthetic and cotton blends, rayon or recycled wool. These are generally fabrics of lower quality and that is why tuxes made in these fabrics usually cost less. Another thing to keep in mind is that tuxes made in the mentioned materials will eventually lose their shape over time. This is because the fabrics are not of highest quality, so eventually the tuxedo will become loose, will start to pile, or it will begin to drape. Piling happens when fibers of the fabric start to break off and pile up in small balls.

On the other side, tuxedos in higher prices are usually made from rich luster or 100% virgin wool material. This type of wool is the best fabric for making a tuxedo. It is very durable material that lasts for a long time. Wool tuxedos are water resistant and can absorb humidity very well. It is also resistant to static electricity, dirt and other external factors. The original shape of the tux is not affected even after many uses, and these types of tuxedos are very warm but also give your body enough space to breathe.

Another major difference between tuxedos in low and high price is the way in which they are manufactured. Cheaper tuxedos are usually sewn by industrial machines and are mass produced. The fabric is just loaded to the machines and machines do the entire work. This process is completely motorized and does not include the benefit of personal examination of every detail. On the other hand, tuxedos in higher prices are usually hand-stitched and tailored to the specific body type of the customer. This guarantees bigger quality, because the tailor can make proper adjustments, check for inconsistencies and other things when creating the tuxedo.

            When it comes to tuxedos you are really getting what you are paying for. Some things simply cannot be compromised and one of those things is the tuxedo quality. If you want a tuxedo that is created exactly according your body shape, a tuxedo that is durable and made of fabric in highest quality, then you will have to pay more. If you plan on taking selfies in your tux and post on sites like Selfie Swiper, we suggest going the higher price route. There is definitely difference in quality when it comes to the cost of the tuxedo, so invest in a quality tuxedo and it will serve you well for many years to come.
