black tie event question

a coworker has been invited to a black tie event for some sort of fundraising event, and he has nothing to wear.

we're assuming that black tie means tuxedo and a bow tie? can anyone recommend a place that rents or sells these?

A black suit is sufficient enough depending on how elegant the evening is. But it is Vancouver, so a tux is not needed.

hi he asked around and it is a bow-tie event so it's a definite yes for a tux... recommendations on where to get one is appreciated.

stupid question but does "black-tie" mean a bow-tie or, well, a regular tie in black?!?

Black-tie in England means bow-tie and tux for sure. Here in Vancouver, it really depends, but if he was told it was a bow-tie affair. It's going to be a tux.

What bout Black and Lee? Got my HS tux there MANY MANY years back lol.
