    It's just another uniform.

    certainly a must.
    you can always wear it while handing out gummy bears to a kids ski class when your not busy taking the jag to the casino.
    tuxes have held their place in fashion just as well as powder blue leisure suits. bell bottoms and platform shoes.

    You have a couple of valid points. But I don’t have a powder blue leisure suit, bell bottoms or platform shoes,either. Do I have to get these things, too? My shopping list is getting longer.....

    * I did once have platform shoes. But they were only 1 1/2” and I got rid of them long ago. I did keep my leather blazer for some reason.

    That said, I might look good wearing a tux while operating my chainsaw or wood chipper.

    Once you own a decent tux, you inevitably find reasons to wear it. And it most always leads to a good time.

    A tux is the general social lubricant equivalent to owning a pair of Renouns skis on PugSki.

    A tux is just gear for another type of gear curator.

    I owned a tux when I was a student bought from a second hand market stall specialising in them. What can I say, I was at a university that had certain traditions but it did enable me to pick up a fair number of bouncer gigs.

    Nowadays will conspicuously avoid any event that imposes such a dress code.

    This is really the bottom line for me. If that is what is required, I'm out. (Don't even own a sports jacket)

    btw... there was not a 'NO' option on the poll...

    My son lived in Scotland for a while. He has now got a kilt for those tux worthy occasions...

    Unless there are functions you attend frequently where a tux is required I wouldn't bother. Easy to rent one.

    This surprised me because IME chicks dig tuxes. Then I saw you are a Vermont girl and it made more sense.
    Did you wear duck boots to the prom?

    Actually I have two kilts.

    Sadly, no. Yet another article of clothing to add to my shopping list. You guys are killing me!
