# black tie events for custom tux to be worthwhile

Ok so I'm trying to decide if I should retire my store bought tux (Macy's, pre-SF, but it was cheap) and get one from WW Chan. The problem is that the current tux doesn't fit me that well - once you get used to jackets that fit, non-fitting stuff start to irk. I used to only go to at most 1-2 black tie events/year and it didn't bother me that much b/c it was rather infrequent. But, this past year I went to 3. Now I'm thinking whether I should get a tux made.

How many events did you guys go to before deciding to get your own tux custom made?

3 a year?

Definitely invest in a custom tux, made even have a 2nd jacket made for a different style if you can pull in that kind of consistency every year.

This year was the first time I went to 3 black tie events. I typically averaged closer to 1.
