    Just a general question. I was asked to go somewhere tomorrow and agreed. Was told at the last minute to wear a tuxedo. Never owned one. Never thought about it. How common is owning one?

    I feel like I'd gain or lose too much weight between events to actually buy one. Plus i find them kind of hideous.

    What exactly differentiates a tuxedo from a black suit? I wors a black suit when I was best man at a wedding but I don't think it was a tux.

    I own several tuxedos. I usually wear them to try and pick up girls. You know, tell em you're a secret agent and ask if they want to see your car. I really gotta up my car game though, they usually split the second they see my 1999 Nissan Altima. Well actually they usually split when some weirdo neckbeard in a tux comes up to them in the mall but whatevs.

    satin and usually you'd see a tux worn with a bow tie and cummerbund.

    But the biggest difference for most people is that generally you're going to wear them at a wedding and it's a matching style all picked out for you and is generally hideous and poorly cut.

    Just wear your suit, if you have one. What are they gonna do, kick you out of the event that you probably don't want to be at anyway...

    And yea, I don't own a tux either, I rented one a long time ago.

    I'm too poor to own shit I'll never need, like a fuckin bowtie.

    I own 4, but only because I'm a professional tuxedo model.

    no... i wanted to have a tuxedo when i was younger. i grew up really admiring penguins and was jealous of the fact that they got to wear tuxedos every single fucking day.

    from a young age of round 4 till well actually just the end of last year when i was 27 i grew up trying to be a penguin. i would walk around with my feet out at funny angles, and my hands straight down by my sides with the palms turned out to the side but facing the floor. cmon guys you know the penguin walk. i would regurgitate all my food as if its normal saying thats what penguins did.

    on my 27th christmas on this earth, i joined the family over the christmas break and my dad told me, stop being a fucking spaz. you are not a penguin. i didnt like someone telling me what i was, and what i am not. i dont need people to define me. but alas, i saw the sense my dad was talking. i am not a penguin.

    No point in owning one unless you're going to numerous black tie or white tie events throughout the year. Just rent one.

    Nope. I haven't worn one since prom. Suits have been the upper limit of my needs so far.
