About The Data: For this list, we only consider tuxes with a Super 120’s equivalent fabric (or better). This helps normalize pricing and ensures a quality baseline for tuxes that are finer, more lightweight and breathable. Forbes suggests an optimal thread count is around 120, such as a Super 120’s fabric – so that’s what we’re going with here as our baseline.
