To start of I'm going to need a tail suit for this saturday, I know it's very late thought of, but things come unexpected in the academic world. The trouble I'm struggling with here is whether I should: Buy a 370$ poly suit (including white bowtie, vest, shirt and suspenders) or a 670$ 60/40 wool/poly package or the third option: Buy a 110$ set of vest, shirt, white bowtie and suspenders and just borrow the suit until I can find something without poly. The conditions are that there will be alot of drinking most of the times I will wear this, is the poly so horrible for wearing one or maybe a few times a year and getting some alcoholic beverage on it? I would never think of getting a poly suit, but it's very tempting to get a poly tailsuit since it will be used so seldomly and abused so much. Any help is appreciated. Oh and a last thing: Anything special I should contemplate on getting a tailsuit that differs from an ordinary suit?
