Probably covered elsewhere, but if you rank AE with C&J Handgrade, where do you rank Alden?
Is it a party, or the ball of one of the Krewes? If the latter, wear black tie and rent it, if the latter, renting a tux probably isn't a bad idea anyway, even if you might be overdressed. In either case, by the end of the evening if whatever you're wearing isn't trashed, you aren't doing it N'awlins style.
With the new 30% off link there are a couple of Isaia Aquaspider suits left in 44 and 46L priced at $419. Here's the link: There is also a black Isaia suit for $419, but not sure if the size given is Euro or US.
The jackets have 2 or 3 purple sleeve tags, they must be 2x to 3x better than RLPL.

The late lamented New Republic sold velvet slippers with a skull and crossbones modeled on the 17th's emblem on them made by Trickers, I believe.

Thanks for the tip. Got a Belvest suit for $419 after adding a $10 clearance item.

Look at the collar, it doesn't even fit properly. You'd think to showcase a suit that expensive they'd have found a model who it fit.
