You're going to want to buy a tux rather than rent. Greek life means wearing black tie 4-5 times per year. And if you choose to remain in the states, your social circles will remain largely intact post-graduation, especially with regards to formal occasions.

Only problem is they came back as a 40R and so the fit doesn't look that great anywhere except the shoulders. They offered to do alterations to the body through...
Wish it were a tad smaller, great looking suit!
