No.  I have never been to any occasion where this is needed.  If there is a need, I intend to rent, too.

You should use traditional Chinese clothes, like Fu Manchu.
You are gay.

How can you wear anything else for a premiere night at the opera or a black tie dinner? These happen at least 5-6 times a year.

Not to mention wearing other people's clothes is gross.

Because in Texas we are very casual.  I can safely attend premiers of big dinners in just a suit.  Heck there will be people in jeans even at those.  No need to own one.

If I lived in New York or Chicago or whatever I probably would own one.

Just curious how many people here have their own tuxedo. I'm surprised so many people whom I considered to be well-off are saying they rent them.

I own one in camouflage.

I believe I shall wear a morning suit for my wedding. This and the other thread have inspired me.
Wear your birthday suit instead.

No idea where you would get one on your side of the Atlantic. Brooks Brothers? But that's $$$.

See if www.marksandspencer.co.uk will deliver to you. They do decent stuff at a very good price.
