I know this question has been asked countless times, but I've never gotten a straight answer from someone whose opinion I respect. A friend who is a year younger than I wants to take me to her senior prom; this presents me with somewhat of a dilemma. I have a reasonably nice Hugo Boss black suit (the James Sharp to be specific), and a pair of Allen Edmonds Park Avenues to go with it. I love the way I look in this combination, and I think that if I get a nice fitted white shirt and a regular black tie, I would look just fine for the event. On the other hand, I could go with renting, which would probably land me with a poorly fitting tux and some clunky patent leather oxfords. This would, however, be the more traditional outfit, and is what my friend wants me to do. Personally, I would rather wear the suit than have to go through the hassle of getting something that will fit poorly just to be "proper". What do you guys think?
