Do you currently own a proper tuxedo/evening gown, that would be passable for a formal event?

Why own when you can rent easily? There's a Men's Wearhouse everywhere

No, I don't "dress up" like that at all

You're 19. Nobody expects you to , unless you're waiting tables. However when & if you ver get involved in fund raising events or various business events, it's a required (and unpleasant) factor

Why own when you can rent?  Simple: If I get a call tonight at 9:30, I can be there dressed and ready.  Total time? 45 mins from call to the door.  I own two tuxes, although one is a bit dated, but it has a day coat as well.

I went to at least half a dozen formal events where a full-on suit or tux was required when I was 18.

My best friend wore a wifebeater to my sister's wedding. She didn't even notice.

Then again, this was Israel and even her husband wasn't wearing a tie.

I just removed the dress right now, had to go for some Nowregian party ( 17th of May party, where everyone has to be dolled up and stuff). I'm glad to take off the dress now and the damned shoes!!!

Yeah, but it's a mishmash,

and mostly pre-1900.

Am actually breaking down & having a formal kilt made, with the cummerbund in the tartan of the SeaBees--will inagurate it at the Marine Corps Ball this year

I've got a few. Between sorority formals, society balls, fundraisers/benefits, and weddings, I actually need to have a few on hand. It helps that I work in the formal gown dept.

The only dress I own is my prom dress that is currently collecting dust in my closet, I am sure. I've just never had to dress up for any events.

Neither one.  I would probably fit in the tux my son wears for a choral group.

What exactly do you do with your life that an "evening gown/tux" formal occasion would come up anyway? (No really, I want to know so I can tag along.)

I technically do own such a dress that would be appropriate for an occassion, but prom was four years and forty pounds ago. >.< Alas. I was in love with that dress.

The tux in my closet was for going to some formal family occasion years ago.

No, but I have a dress that would be passable for a drag event.
Does that count?

No, I don't even own a tie.  Not interested in any of that!!

mostly fund raisers, and several cultural affairs where black tie is traditional
