    In all honesty, I would buck up the extra $ and go for the SuitSupply tuxedo package. It's $799 and includes the tuxedo, shirt, studs, and shoes. It's also really high quality and will last awhile. You'll be hard pressed to find a quality retail tuxedo under that amount.

    It only asks me for a jacket size. They just guess what pants fit me?

    6-inch drop is standard for suits with a paired pair of trousers. Example: 42" chest comes with 36" trousers, and they typically don't vanity size so even if you, for example, wear a 34 in J. Crew, a 36 pair of trousers that come with a suit may fit the same way.

    Charles Thyrwhitt makes a pretty classic Tux.

    Do you know what you want with regards to studs, suspenders, shirt etc.

    Personally I would splurge on the suit and skimp on the shirt, shoes and accessories. If you're onstage with a lot of other people no one in the audience will notice. You can easily upgrade the shirt and accessories later when you have more cash. Dropping a comparatively large amount on a suit you don't really like is never a good idea.

    +1 for cg. if you are wearing the tux for work, its better to get a beater tux than get something super fancy and expensive.

    I agree that something durable is a good choice,
    But are the only options SS or CG the only options.

    Tuxedos are a bit different than suits, and there are plenty of brands that specialize in them, for example. Budget suit brands tend not to make single button peak lapel tuxedos. I think it is probably good to cast a wider net.

    I think it would probably worth the OP's time to pop in at a local tux rental store, and see what they have to sell.
