    Moss brothers are usually a good place for this kinda thing, I believe if the suit needs altering to fit you properly they will do it for you included in the cost.

    Bear in mind that if you think you will ever need one more tha 4 times, it is cheaper to buy. Look in M&S for reasonable priced suits

    also bare in mind that if its gonna be a big ball (with loads of alcohol etc) then its usually a good idea to get the suit insured :)

    Buy one from a local charity shop and have it dry cleaned. You may laugh but they cost about a tenner and mine is an ex rental one anyway. I've been using it for almost 10 years now professionally (I am a classical musician). It doesn't look any worse than any other budget Dinner Jacket as long as I get it dry cleaned etc.
