Since I usually wear black (heh) my girlfriend has asked me to do something 'different' for prom, and I want to take that all the way. So I've decided to go with a pink tux, or maybe a purple pinstripe like Willy Wonka's. Unfortunatly, my google-fu fails me, and I am unable to find anything. So I turn to the ever-resourceful GOTH.NET community, hoping you guys can point me to some sites/online stores that sell this type of stuff. Any pointers, advice, tips, or suggestions are also welcome. (of course.)

...thanks!

I second that, and add: check your local charity shops too.

Are you really *really* set on the pink tux? At least where I live, pink is so, uh... stereotypically effeminate that it is almost masculine. To the point of it being "gangsta'" or "tight" for males to wear pink... It's pretty mainstream and normal to see average dudes in pink. I know a butload of guys who did various permutations of the pink tux for our last prom. Whatever. Just my 2[.5] cents.

Let me point out the part of his post where he answers your question:

It seems he's open to a variety of different looks, but if he wants pink, it's his choice. Pink being stereotypical where you live doesn't make it so everywhere else. In addition, this thread wasn't really asking for your opinion on the choice. It was asking for help finding the tux in question.

If you've been keeping up with this year's fashion trends, you would realise that pink on men is the "in" thing this year. Apparantly it all started when some r&b singer came out at an awards show wearing an all pink suit complete with pink tennies and it's gained a bit of popularity.

Personally I can't/won't wear pink simply because:
A. I don't think I'll ever get tired of black.
B. With my white skin it's just a terrible clash.
C. Purple is slicker looking *IMO*

But do whatever you want, individuality is what makes us unique and that is what really matters right?

Apparently, we've exhausted suggestions for where to buy a unique tuxedo and have moved on to offering opinions on the choice. Topic closed. If anyone has any actual suggestions for the original poster, either PM them to him or I'll be happy to add them here.
