The men’s style bible goes in on how to BUY a tuxedo…GQ:
“Somewhere along the line, a tuxedo went from being the most majestic piece in a man’s wardrobe to something that he had to wear. As in, “Yeah, dude, I gotta wear a tux to this wedding next weekend.” You know what? Quit your carping. The fact is, you’ll never look better, more manly—more gentlemanly—than in a tuxedo.”
I wore a nice tux to a party once and I was easily the best-dressed guy in the room. Then the mom came back in the room with the cake and the clown and kicked me out… haters.
