The Final Word on Orange and Powder Blue
Every time Dumb and Dumber gets aired on TV, we at eTuxedo get a call from some misguided soul who wants a powder blue or orange tuxedo. The frightening thing about this is that people actually want to wear these to their weddings or proms, not just Halloween parties.
I'm all for people finding their own style, but if you are seriously considering trying to wear one of these atrocities in public, I beg you to think of your date, bride, or anyone who may have sensitive eyes. You have every right to make a fool of yourself, but please consider the feelings of that woman you're lucky to have standing next to you. One day, she'll have kids of her own, and she'll be forced to explain to them why she was doomed to be seen in public next to you.
Think of all these before you go forward with your plans. If, after you have considered all of these factors, you are still determined to dress in a tuxedo that is orange, blue, purple, leopard print, or whatever, don't call us. We can't help you.
You'll have to buy them from a costume shop. The cheap variety can be bought at any Halloween store, especially around September or October, and will cost you around $50-$75. It won't fit you very well (see picture) and it'll be the cheapest polyester known to man, which means you'll be suffocating in a matter of minutes.
If you're buying this for a wedding, you'll want something of a better quality. You'll need to call around to higher end, professional costumers. I'm talking about the companies that make costumers for movies and huge on-stage productions. Your tuxedo will be custom made and will cost you somewhere around $1,000.
We're sorry we don't have better news, but mercifully, there are no reputable tuxedo shops that make these kind of tuxedos.
