Got a black tie event coming up - been to quite a few past couple years and hate wearing shirt and bow tie. Is it a faux pas to wear a dinner jacket with a t shirt or will I look like a cunt?

Territos on Park St was always fine for me - only ever had length alterations though.

It's not the first time I heard that, I think it is to do with the stitching and the fabric not catching as they should.. Good after service on their behalf though..

You can get those novelty tees with the bow tie printed on them. Just get one of those.

Based on that WAYWT you did with the waxy green jacket, briefcase and yellow gloves poked out the top pocket I imagine a fat fuk like you in a slim fit tux will look like a absolute c*nt.
