Our Honest Opinion
The Professional Santa Suit Costume is exactly what the name suggests: professional quality. The jacket, hat and pants are thick, fluffy pile-plush, not just plush. They are satin-lined for all day comfort. The faux rabbit hair trim is long-hair, not short. The boot covers and belt are Naugahyde, not vinyl. One caveat is that the color of this Santa Claus costume is bright red, not burgundy. Keep in mind that the Professional Santa Suit is designed with ample room so that the jacket will drape well in photos and not be confining or uncomfortable when sitting with children. Slender Santas may find this style overwhelming for their body type.
If you're undecided between the Professional Santa Suit and the Majestic Santa Suit, focus on the thickness of the pile-plush. The principal difference between these Santa Suits is the extra thickness of the pile-plush in the Majestic Santa Suit that gives the majestic appearance.
The Professional Santa Suit is produced by Halco, the premier makers of Santa Suits in the world. They have been featured in movies, television shows and commercials. The Professional Santa Suits had been sewn in Pennsylvania for 60 years but Halco modified production in 2008 to remain competitive. The design, patterns, fabrics and colors are still developed in America but the sewing now takes place in China. Each year, the Halco team leaves Pennsylvania and takes residence in China to oversee the sewing. This guarantees the highest quality Santa Suits.
