    A suit's a suit, right?

    Years ago before I was married, I used to work near to a taylors where I was always envoled with the public and tourists. I had a suit made at the the taylors and whilst it cost near to 20,000 baht it was the the best suit i'd ever owned.

    After recomending many tourists to this taylors equaling many hundreds of thousands of baht, one day the taylor stopped me on the way to work saying " Oh Khun TFP, you have sent us much buissines over the years, can we say thankyou by making you a suit?"

    O.k I said, thankyou very much, I'm getting married in 4 months and I'd really like a Tuxedo. So they maid me the best tux using thier finest material which would have come with a price tag of well over 20,000 and I've got to say that James Bond himself would be jealous.

    Since the wedding I've had no use for it but next week is my best mates wedding in Chaing Mai and I'd even told him how I was looking forward to wearing it again.

    It wasn't until a few days ago when my wife asked what I was going to wear and I answered with "Well, my tux of course"

    She hit the roof! Her argument was that that tux was only for our special day together and that we must keep it (in the wardrobe) forever as a memory!

    To me this sounds bloody ridiculas. I understand how she could never wear her wedding dress again because hopefully the occasion will never arise, but a tux?

    There is no chance I'm even going out his week to spend even 10,000 on a suit, so what would you do?

    Swallow you pride and buy a new suit to keep the wife happy? or, put you foot down and tell her to stop being unrealistic?

    p.s I need this decision by tomorow as I've lost about 17kg since the wedding so I'll need to get it tucked in a bit before Thursday if I get the balls to wear it!

    You got pictures of hte wedding? Hang them in the closet. Wear the suit. If she's not going to wear the wedding dress again see if you can sell it. You're married for crissake, ain't that enough to remind of that "special day?"

    If telling the ol' lady you've got to spend another 10K on a new suit you'll never wear again isn't reason enough to change her mind; she's a bit of a spendthrift, don't ya think?

    I agree with Dave, don't upstage the groom.

    But if he's wearing a tux -- wear yours too. You are is best man afterall.

    Tell your wife she's got the whole wedding day fashion thing all wrong.

    Guys want to reinstill their love for their wives by going to a friends wedding in the tux they were married in. It's an old (English/Welsh/Aussie/Scot/American/French) tradition.

    Perfect answer. I'm just a bit worried that that should have been my first answer when the subject was first brought up last week. Damn.

    With a nice Tux hanging in the closet it would be quite Gay not to wear it, and besides that if you don't then you are pussy whipped and she will know it for sure.

    OMG!! Its just dawned on me why my wifes closet is so full and she has so many shoes.

    Every item must be for a different memory!

    They must store thier brains in the wardrobe!

    I supose it's better than where I store mine.

    This is our fate and exactly why you'll be spending 10,000 baht on a new suit!

    I thought about that but my mate is doing that and he's paying 15,000 for his and her dress together. I'm sure that her's cost a lot more but then its just going to turn into a very expensive weekend what with the flights for me and my wife, hotel, stag party, wedding pressent etc.

    Just spoken to my mate and yes, he's defo wearing a tux. So I'm gonna go for it! I'm gonna stick my foot down and show her who's the boss

    I'm going to give her texpats line about the english tradition and re kindling memories mumbo jumbo and then if that doesn't work i'll give it the old "Do you want a new dress or not?" routine.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    That's got to be the laugh of the day!

    Are you referring to using your Willy or keeping it tucked away?

    Fresh Prince, wear the tux if the wedding is formal, it's a waste. I have friends who have cut off their wedding dresses to wear again, spending thousands on something you will only keep in mothballs is silly. That's my personal opinion but if it going to make your wife hit the roof rethink.
