Shopping for Aaron Marino's First Tuxedo | VLOG Part One

Subscribe to Alpha M. on YouTube
In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is not a vlogger so this may be a little rough. He is going to buy his first tuxedo. He is trying a Hugo Boss tux for a wedding but is not a fan of this brand which quality has taken a nose dive while it's still pricey. He feels the per cost wear is astronomical! He says Suit Supply is better quality for half the price.

Tuxedos are a black suit except for satin lapel and satin buttons as well as the pants have a satin stripe down the side. Otherwise, it's a black suit.

He arrives at Bloomingdales where he starts. He's typically a 36 short -- and there are two versions (regular and slim) which Alpha is a slim. He tries on the 38 although it'll need alterations. He then tries on a 36 regular, which the shoulders fit better. He wants the slim fit, however. 38 short for now is the fit although he's not wild about it.

Off the rack, it's tough for Alpha. The problem is spending so much money, he'd like to wear it again. He leaves for the Hugo Boss store for more selection. At the new location, he tries a 36 regular. He length is good but the sleeves need to be taken up. It turns out to be the one. The shoulders will have the gaps filled with pads. If it doesn't fix it, a refund will be issued.
