My organization regularly purchases tables at various charity events and has done so for one at the st. regis next week. I have been asked to attend, along with a somewhat cheap co-worker. He does not own a tuxedo and will be forced to rent one. He told me that he would be seeking corporate reimbursement for the $150 or so that it will cost to rent the tux. I told him to hold on while I check with the experts. I think he should suck it up as going to black tie events is part of being a professional. He thinks thats bs and goes beyond the usual professional dress requirements. What say you folks? Should he put the rental on his corporate credit card and submit for reimbursement on a T&E or should he suck it up and pay himself. thanks all.
