My advice go with the waistcoat now, you can add cummerbund later, if you are bespoking it. Alternatively suspenders but all 3 you can specify now, I think. It'll be quite versatile. I made a mistake not doin a waistcoat, now I think it'll be hard to get matching cloth to the dj. Shirt for me pointed collars always.

If you look hard enough you might even find tails.

Why not get a Suit Supply one? I think the whole shebang from them is USD400.... above your budget but it'll be new and good quality.

No, I don't need a tux. No experience with the fit but there's plenty of evidence on SF to suggest it's rather good. Don't know if they have a shop in London, but they are made in Amsterdam.

Oh dang. They are good value. It'll be hard not to get something from them now.

FF, my advice whatever it is dont ever do a rental, i look like a fucking waiter when i did that. But I did it in KL, but the DJ rentals in UK would be substantially better.

You should ask yourself how much mileage are gonna get with the DJ. I do get a black tie event once a year but after i commissioned my DJ, i've only had one event. Hahahaha. There you go when i didnt have 1, i was getting invites left right and center. Now that i do, its dried up. But its good to have in you wardrobe i think, and i dont like not following the dress code. The organizers of the party have come out of their way organizing a party and inviting you, the least you could do is to oblige them with the proper attire.

And another thing you'll prob have a lot of black tie events there, the balls there all black tie so you might have to consider in investing in one.

I don't suppose you'd be able to fit into one with a 37" chest and 16.5" shoulder to shoulder measurement? I think I'll skipping all of these year's black tie events so I'm more than happy to loan it out. It's an uncollected bespoke piece by Chris Kerr which I somehow managed to get my hands on.

If you're really not going to wear it often and can't justify spending too much on it, why not try M&S. The Marble Arch flagship store should carry their entire range of formal-wear. Even though the trousers that go with their dinner jackets have belt loops, it's not the end of the world. With the 30% discount that they're offering on men's suits, you'd be spending well below £200.

What, with that awful collar gap? I admired the cream jacket the villian wore when he first appeared.
