Best Quality Tailsuits
Posted by binky54

Hello. I am in the process of moving to compete at the silver level in international standard and by Canada DanceSport rules will need a proper tailsuit. I would like to get a high quality tailsuit and wonder what the top brands are for tailsuits as well as places where they can be purchased.

If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Interesting question. It appears to me that the standard male dress code for International Ballroom, at least in the US, does not require tails. The male code now calls for dark/black suit, white shirt and white bow tie. I am not sure of the reasoning behind this change, but I have seen it in several competitions.

All the men at my studio (Ottawa) have bought tailsuits from MK Style. You can check them out at mkstyle.ca.

I bought my tail suit from ballroomsuits.com. Eric, who I believe is the owner, was very helpful, checking with me at least twice on my measurements after my local tailor messed them up. I added the wool upgrade for $100 or something like that. He also kept me up to date on the status of my order via email.

You might want to add an extra inch to your waist measurement as tailored suits don't allow much room for any weight gain. Don't ask how I know this.

There was a minor issue with the shirt collar because I take a size 17.5-18. He had to order one from DSI, I think. I ordered two from another vendor because we had a competition coming up and I didn't want to take a chance on having no collar. All of the collars got to me well ahead of time, so I had three for the comp. LOL.

I've used the suit for 3 comps now and I've been very happy with it. YMMV.
