+1 to all. defo get a tux. i dont have one and wish i had gotten one.
Not sure if you're genuinely curious or having a go at me, but ...
I think a lot of celebs are just not that arsed about dressing well and not interested in conforming to what we think of as traditional black tie. Remember that scene on Entourage when Vince was going on the Jimmy Kimmel show and said he didn't even own a suit? Art imitating life?
Also, take a look at what a sad set of schlubs and ponces a lot of these designers are. Simon Noonan with his vomit shirts. That George Greeksurname on the Joan Rivers show. Plus, as black tie has been largely prescribed for a hundred years or whatever, these designers have to put their spin on it, hence Ford's huge lapels or whoever did Clooney forgetting to do a breast pocket etc.
My mate's girl knows Brad Pitt and says he's an archetypal sixties stoner hippie - hardly the kind of person you expect to follow black tie tradition to the letter. Much easier to get Tom or Giorgio to send a driver round with a few free samples and if they fit reasonably well, job's a goodun!
