I own my own tuxedo but I don’t find much opportunity to wear it. It isn’t often that I am invited to a black tie event. I have already worn it enough to justify buying one as apposed to renting but as expensive as a tuxedo is, I want to get more use out of it. Can the suit be broken into separate trousers and jacket for occasions other than black tie or even worn in more creative ways as a full suit. ( I’ve already used my tux in a Halloween costume as phantom of the opera. ) Are there times when a tuxedo would be appropriate attire other than black tie events?
