It took almost two years from start to finish. Finally, in May I could pick up the tuxedo at Volkmar Arnulf’s workshop in Potsdam.
The tuxedo is a very classic tuxedo, a new year’s eve tuxedo.
Design style is a double breasted two-button shawl collar with one-pleat high-waist trousers with side-adjusters.
Shoulders are extended a bit to give more drop.
Fabric is a mohair barathea from Dugdale.
As always with suits from Arnulf lines are immaculately clean. Moreover, the suit is extremely comfortable and proves once again that unstructured, soft tailoring versus structured, hard tailoring shouldn’t be confused with comfort. Comfort is about cutting technique mainly.
Unlike English tailors Volkmar Arnulf uses silk satin for the lapels.
Price was 4.200 euro.
