Can anyone provide an opinion on this DJ?



It is on sale, showing up in my Shopping Cart as $477 right now. That is right within the same price range as the JAB Signature peak lapel DJ when it's on sale. However, to my eye this one looks more my style - the lapels look to be a bit narrower. Can anyone comment on the style or the quality as I am not familiar with RC?

The pants also seem pretty good. I'm not sure how the JAB trousers are shaped, but if I had to guess I'd say they are more full-cut. Being extremely skinny I'd prefer slim (NOT skinny) trousers to pair with my DJ.

I can't comment on the quality, but I'd imagine it's at least as good as the J.A.B offerings.

The style certainly seems to be better than many tuxedos. Peaked lapels, one button, side vents, sounds good to me. It looks quite good, all in all. I don't think you'd go wrong with it.

Actually, it is a ventless jacket.

Good grief, the shipping charge is £50! Lewin only charges what, 8 quid to the US? I'd have someone in the UK get it for me and ship it, but then I'd have to pay VAT and it would be a wash :(

Also, I would find out how they ship. Some of these firms use UPS and UPS collects a fee for brokering custom duties, which may be non-existant but you have to pay anyway. Duchamp of London is one of the highest and they only charge 18 bps. Also, after many complaints, Duchamp is not having duty collected by UPS. Some of these English firms are new to international shipping and don't realize how their shipping prices discourage US sales.
I did send them an email asking what service they use. I will certainly not be buying the dinner jacket if it is 50 pounds to ship.

Does anyone know what the JAB Signature Peak Lapel DJ is made out of? Is it not barathea?
