    Hello all,

    I am attending a wedding in the summer, and the dress code for one of the events is black tie. I don't have the biggest budget, at about £500/$800 (flexible) so would it be better to just rent?

    Does anyone know if there's somewhere I can get one MTM? I say this because I'm quite large and cannot always find something that fits well. I'm 6"5 about 220 lbs, 43" Chest 36" Waist and lift weights so whilst not hugely muscly I do have rather large thighs

    Currently looking at Suitsupply but I've tried a couple of their suits and have found them slightly tight on the legs

    Charlie's Tyrwhitt might be a decent choice for you: http://www.ctshirts.com/us/mens-suits/complete/tuxedos/
