I’m not sure if this has ever happened to you guys, but I am currently transitioning to Dubai and whilst here have an unexpected black tie event this evening. My Tobias bespoke dinner Jacket is at home and I had to rent a fairly (very!) shitty approximation of a dinner jacket (notched lapels, no boutonniere, horrible fabric etc) and shirt they had no cummerbunds and I had to buy a crap bow tie…… I am amazed how precious I have become and am really upset…

I hate my rental clothes, hate my rental car, hate my rental flat hate Dubai… Love free bubbly - so it is about even.

This is surely the only place to get some sympathy – please help a friend!

Get in touch with PG and start a self-help group. I feel for you, man!

I experienced the heat of Oman and the UAE during the majority of my childhood years, and I've never missed it.

The only consolation is if you are invited to wear a tuxedo, the venue will be so highly air conditioned, you'd need a coat.
