The company Christmas party is tonight, and the wild'n'crazy theme chosen by popular vote was "Black Tie" (damn you, reserved British culture!). So now I have to rent some sort of clothing. Is there such a thing as a non-boring dinner jacket? An stylish tuxedo? If so, where does one find such a thing? Answer in the comments ASAP, please, as I have to rent the damn thing this afternoon.

Comments along the lines of "oh, but tuxedos are already stylish!" or "suits look great!" will not be accepted. They may look good on other people. I look like a trapped monkey.

However, I'm having a terrible feeling about this. From the website of Moss Brothers Rental:

The great thing about black tie ... is that it is so easy. It doesn’t demand a great deal of choice, or even much fuss for that matter. It is, essentially, a uniform, and it is very hard to get it wrong.
Aaaaaaaaaargh! I hate uniforms! I demand choice! *sob* :-(
