    I'm going to be rocking a penguin suit at a future function.
    Very few men own tuxedos - thinking about remedying this.
    Does anyone have any practical suggestions?
    I prefer double-breasted with two buttons.
    No J.C. Penney's.

    How many events will you be wearing this to? Is it worth the cost?

    I don't want one that's been chafing up against somebody else's nads.
    New one, most preferably.
    Spare no expense.

    Joseph A Banks is the way to go but wait till they have one of the frequent 50 % off sales. The signature level is a pretty good quality suit if ypu are not
    wearing weekly.

    Better get canvas pants. Much more fart-resilient.

    As for color, get classic black. So versatile and shart-friendly.

    You must be a germaphobe? Those things are cleaned after every use.
    ...and you can wear underpants...or longjohns...to stay away from "chafing nads"

    You can't go wrong with Brooks Brothers.

    yeah but you can pay a lot more than you need to for the name.

    I think the quality is worth it. I've got some Brooks buttondowns I've worn for 20 years now and they look almost brand new.

    Anyway, for a budget, maybe look at ...


    For that price, you get to some customization that really makes it "your" tux.
