    Tux (for tuxedo) and Zoot (for zoot suit) are both cut from the same elegant thread. Tux is tailored formal, reflecting the hallmark of timeless tradition. Zoot is retro and really hip, breaking the mold of formal fashion! Suitable for residential, commercial and corporate use these designer mirrors are destined to become personal favorites. Made to order mirrors are available direct from the Artist in editions limited to 50 units each. Handcrafted with exacting detail to the highest standards, these artful furnishings use only the finest yet ecologically sustainable materials. The mirrors are Artist signed, numbered, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. These spirited works join a growing collection of fine art furniture.
