    Prom Tux

    Prom is coming up at my high school and I would like to buy a tuxedo this time instead of renting one. For my tux, I would like it done custom, but I have a very tight budget. Does anybody know where I can get a custom tuxedo for under $200

    $200 is pretty cheap even for a RTW tux. MTM/bespoke is probably out of the picture unless you are real good friends with a tailor in Hong Kong or something.

    I know this is a delayed response but have you tried something pre-owned? Grailed, Poshmark, eBay etc?

    It's been a minute bud, but if you're prom hasn't already passed, Joe has you covered:

    Probably for the best. High School prom in the grand scheme of life is not an event worth blowing money on. It seems important at the time but you may look back at all the outfits years from now and go what were we thinking.
