The best value is to have all three pieces made by a tailor — and to have the tuxedo made with two pairs of pants. The worsted wool of the seat can quickly become shiny and threadbare after all that sitting and shimmying. When buying bespoke, you are paying more for craftsmanship, but you are also paying incrementally less for the fabric you are using once your tailor has made your pattern. Pierre Papadopoulos (450 Seventh Avenue, Suite 2105, at 35th Street, 212 947 0316) is far and away best tailor I know outside of London; the price tag (upward of $3,000 depending on the fabric, your negotiating skills, and his sympathy) and the six months it takes to get the finished product are worth it: Pierre and his wife, Sofia, do all of their work in their decidedly unfashionable, cluttered cutting rooms.
