I imagine that a number of tuxedo rental places have ugly and unattractive garments that they will let you rent. The real question is do you want to look good at prom or do you want to look like a delusional 17-18 year old kid who thinks that he looks cool in a cobalt blue jacket with black satin lapels? If want to look good:
1) A tuxedo is black (or midnight blue, though not for a prom rental)
2) Peak or shawl lapels
3) One button
4) No vents*
5) Decent fit, i.e. no too big jacket or badly hemmed trousers
6) White proper tuxedo shirt
7) Cufflinks and studs
8) Low cut vest or cummerbund
9) Tie your own damn bowtie
10) Proper shoes
Vents are acceptable for the trad and/or the post trad community
He's a high school kid going to his prom. If he wants to wear something like this I say it's OK as long as it fits etc. Let him have fun.
Hey kid, look at the Macy's webpage. I think they have stuff like that there. Maybe a couple of the other stores too.
