Default bought a tux for Summit

After 9 cruises, finally bought a tux for the next one (Summit to Hawaii Sept 23). Found it at Mens Wearhouse for $299. I would recommend if anyone is looking for one to try them. It is much more stylish than the rentals on board. I have gone with the dark suit also, but...there is just something about a tux.

You're right, Gary !!!

And it probably does more for your partner than it does for you.

That's what my wife says pamda....

And she made me go out and get one about 5 cruises ago.....

Thank goodness I have not filled out the cargo hold so as to have to get another.
Makes dressing on formal night easier.

I got wise to that years ago when I'd occasionally have to take the tux on a business trip to wear at some event or other. When I got home my wife would pout that I got to wear the tux when she wasn't around.

Once or twice after such complaints I was tempted to put it on and take her someplace for a drink, but somehow that seemed a bit foppish. So I came up with a better solution: try to preplan things so that she could come along on "tux trips." That seemed to work well. Her favorite was the black tie dinner in the Eiffel Tower. We had a private elevator separate from the tourist lifts and she still talks about how special that was, with all the guys in tuxes, etc. etc.

Just somethin' about them penguin suits that drives the ladies wild. . .

And even I must admit that a tuxedoed dinner in the Tower with lots of good domestic wine, followed by nightcaps on the Champs-E. does instill a bit of the Cary Grant swagger (or is it stagger?).

Right! The ladies (speaking of my wife of course) do love them. Now I am finding the cost of the tux is just the beginning. After the "accessories" are added on, will add another couple hundred or so. Oh, well, anything to keep them happy. You are so right, AR, but I had in mind Sean Connery. Hmm... I wonder if they have Baccarat on board? Better look for a white dinner jacket as well.

Hey Gary:
White dinner jackets are so goosh. I enjoy just changing the cumberbun. Maybe something to complement the better halfs dress for the evening. Don't forget to keep the bun creases up. Better to catch the crumbs. Have a great time.

Hey Gary,
All I can say is "its about TIME"! I'm sure you will get a lot of use out of the tux and you know it fits you!

Oh, NOOOOO, Tom W ...

No "matchie-poo". This is NOT the Senior Prom !!!

There's nothing gauche about white dinner jackets, just so long at the bridge staff is wearing white.

I like the idea of changing ties and cummerbunds. My husband has the basic black, a snappy Royal Stewartt tartan, and a pretty outlandish Hawaiian number I bought before our spring cruise to Hawaii. The Hawaiian definitely looks better with the white dinner jacket.

Here's some tux info ...

What's all this talk about "bun creases?" I thought this was a classy board.

If you're taking on the role of 007, I guess I'll have to be Jack Lord (book em, Danno!) from Hawaii-50 fame. I'll be the well-dressed copper with black, red and blue ties/cumberbunds for our 3 formal nights on the Summit Sept 24th! I just hope my wife "falls" for the macho guy stuff!

See you on board!

Bob

Hey, Bob, I made a typo. We are not on the 24th Summit, we are on the 13th from Vancouver. It looks like 007 and McGarrett won't be meeting afterall.
