After Six Launches New Retail Tuxedo
New York, NY – March 8, 2012 – Today, a new retail tuxedo from the iconic After Six brand will be available for sale online at www.aftersix.com and at select formal wear retailers. The new tux has been jointly developed by Dessy Group and the Tailored Clothing division of Smart Apparel U.S.
The Paragon tuxedo is a modern classic, ideal for any formal occasion. Fabricated in extra fine merino wool, it features two-button styling, notch lapels, and unique piping with a signature bowtie motif.
Retailing for $395, the Paragon is handsomely complemented by After Six’s formal accessories including ties, pocket squares, vests and more. Accessories come in the bowtie pattern in tones of aubergine, platinum or sapphire, as well as a range of solid colors matching bridesmaid dresses by the Dessy Group.
The historic After Six brand was acquired by the Dessy Group in March 2011. The Dessy Group had been producing bridesmaid dresses as a licensee of After Six since 1997, and now, as owner of the brand, intends to remain true to the After Six tradition of quality tuxedos at reasonable prices.
Alan Dessy, CEO of the Dessy Group, says, “The Paragon tux is essentially our idea of what a traditional all-American tuxedo should be. It’s a bit preppy and conservative. The fabric has a nice hand but is also durable. The tuxedo is timeless, and will still be in style years from now. At this price, the tuxedo will pay for itself in just a few wearings compared to the cost of rental.”
