How much money you want to throw down? How much time do you have until the event?

Dillards has some decent brands in that price range. (Used to anyway. It's been awhile since I bought a suit or tux.

Brooks Brothers will be above of that price range.

Either sound money and go to Brooks Brothers (1,000.00) or go to Porter Stevens (100.00) in Lakeside mall.

The Porter Stevens tux is decent quality for the price.

I went to the BB website...

I have one, but it's too big on me now. I went to Dillards last night, but they didn't have any.

Men's Warehouse has a nice Calvin Klein for $640. Not sure if I want to spend that much though.

assuming you don;t want to drop a grand on an occasional tux - I got one at Jos A Bank a few months ago. Very light weight, very comfortable, very traditional, $800 plus all the accessories, salesman dropped the price, out the door on everything for $450 (tux, shirt, stud set, suspenders, cumberbun, bow tie. The accessories are outrageously priced. the salesmen there are pretty cool if you get the right one, and will usually make a deal).

That's just it, I already have all the extras. Braces, shirt, cuff links (no cumberbun), so I only need a jacket and pants.

I'd order on line, but I've lost 50 pounds and would like to get measured.

Then go to Bank. The cheapest one is barely above rental grade, was like $225 I think. The next one up is great. I paid around $300. Like everything there, regular price is absurd, but they'll always give you a sale price. If you go to the one downtown, ask for Hampton. He knows his shite. There is also a slightly heavy slightly set dark complected guy. He doesn't know shite. Avoid him like the plague.
