    So weighing up what to use my frequent flyer points on.

    David Jones or Myer Gift Card? - Which offers better selection of men's work attire.

    Spread collars are very passe. I suspect French cuffs will go the same way soon.

    IMO don't bother with a cheap dinner suit, wait until you can afford a decent one. By that stage you'll probably be going to enough black tie events to make it worth while.

    Just wear the black suit with a crisp white shirt (preferably a Tux shirt) and wear a nice self tie bow tie. Again, no need to spend a fortune on the bow tie, especially if you're just going black satin.

    If you want to stand out a bit try a diamond tip, or dots, or both:

    If you really do want to spend a bit of cash get a tux shirt eg:

    Hah, thought that would provoke a response. IMO when you're going to one or two black tie events per year and (it sounds like) on a budget, you're much better to spend your $$$s on some stuff you'll wear on weekdays.

    Better suggestion? Be interested to know where you would suggest acquiring a decent value for money tux in Aust within two weeks...

    I strongly advise against wearing DJ accesories with a black suit. It will make you look like you have no idea... I also think you're better off waiting, just wear normal conservative options that aren't too buisiness.

    Is there an Aus member who can proxy a purchase from kaeho.com.au to Vancouver, Canada for me? They won't ship beyond NZ. :(

    The time-honoured route for first dinner suit buyers leads to ...Vinnies.

    The humble French cuff has been around a lot longer than you, I don't think it is going anywhere soon.

    Plus, it will always be in style if you have the balls and fashion sense to pull it off. Maybe not of you're a uni student heading for a night out, but you'll find it's very acceptable in the business world.
