I've researched threads here but have some specific questions
So I'm attending a wedding in a week and a half that is black tie and have been debating renting vs. buying. I honestly would prefer to rent as I never attend black tie events but the thought of an ill fitting tux does not make me happy. So I have been giving thought to just going to Jos A Banks and buying a tux. Money is tight but I could swing it if needed. So I saw this peak label jacket on sale for 140 along with these pants for $60 or these for $78. Although I'm not crazy about that satin band on the first pants.
Am I just better off renting a Joseph Abboud tux? Again I may not wear a tux again for years. If I had the time I would have tried to buy something used online but seems like its too late to do that.
Another question - The girlfriend would prefer I wear a tie vs a bowtie. If I do go with a tie is there a particular type of shirt I should go with?
