I'm looking for a good place to pick up some cheap pieces to complete this costume. I've found the mustache, but I would love to have some websites to pick up a cheap black jacket with a long tail...Here's what I'm going for, obviously

I thought about renting one, but I'm going to be pretty drunk while wearing it and damage is always a possibility. Maybe I could get a cheap rental at Men's Warehouse.

It sounds like he wants a morning coat, not a tux. It looks to me the ensemble is: Top hat Grey pants Morning coat White vest Red tie Black shoes Pimp-ass cane. Alternatively, you could just be like this guy:
And get the head too.

Why make it a costume and not a weekly occurrence?

And yes, you want a morning dress, not a tux.

i've bought a bunch of tuxes/topcoats on ebay before. right now, there are sellers with a morning coat/grey pants combo for $59.99. with the extra 20% from live.com, its under 50 bucks. anything you rent from mens wearhouse is going to be at least a $100 or so. you could go to a local tux place however and rent a cane and tophat from them if you can't find any to buy.
