Going to the store with him today. I don't understand why it's so high. He's probably picked a designer tux or something. I know it's black on black pinstripe. Who the fug knows what my child has picked.
If you still live in Wilson I would make the trip to Raleigh. What you spend in gas will be worth it if you get one for close to 100 bucks.

If it isn't a Tux where he has to rent a specific style or model but you want a black standard one for example, you can actually buy one cheaper than you can rent one. Hard to believe but it is true. The rental places actually sell used ones but my son who is 13 had 3 formal dances to go to as part of the cotillion group he belongs to. I bought him one on Ebay for 40 bucks. Brand new and it had all the components. It looked as good as the one he wore at his older brother's wedding last year which we had to rent for 120 bucks because it had to match all the others.
You can purchase a very nice standard black tux for about the price of 1 1/2 rentals. Definitely the way to go.
I actually own several....end up and 5-6 black tie events (silent auctions, charity dinners, awards ceremonies) every year.

You'd have to know my son to understand why he picked pinstripes vs a basic black tux. He didn't want a white shirt, either. He went with black.
My prom dates in 86 and 88 wore white tuxes.With tails. I will forever associate a white tux with the 80's. It seems cummerbunds are also making a comeback.
