I can't speak to Joseph Abboud these days but there was a time when they used to make some pretty decent sports coats and suits for what they cost.

This may be the first time in my history I say these words but perhaps renting would be the best idea. I don't know what kind of social circles you run in but the average college/university student doesn't need a dinner suit at all, let alone several times a year. Buying a cheap one (which may be no better than what you can rent) as a bridge to a future point where you can buy a nicer one is merely sinking money into something that you might never be satisfied with and...

I don't mind being edgy at times as long as it doesn't seem like I need professional help. LOL Thanks again for everyones input. You've been on this web site for nearly six years and you really think wearing a tuxedo shirt with jeans is a good idea? I will freely admit that...
