Con­grat­u­la­tions, you are the proud renter/owner of a tuxe­do! Applaud your­self for bold­ly ignor­ing the com­mon util­i­tar­i­an lament: “When will I ever wear this again?”That voice in your head was shunned for good rea­son. The wed­ding may be over, but the oppor­tu­ni­ties for for­mal wear are many, and man are they fun.

LAS VEGAS

Bring the tux on your next Vegas week­end and pre­pare to address the ques­tion “dammit why didn’t I think of that?” What­ev­er your for­tune on the casi­no floor, you’re guar­an­teed to be a win­ner wear­ing man’s great­est state­ment. Plus, there’s no chance of ever look­ing over­dressed. You may feel like it’s a bit much, but believe us, you’ll see every­thing in Vegas.

HALLOWEEN

Grab a mar­ti­ni glass and you’re James Bond. Don a fan­cy cape and you’re Drac­u­la. Find a top hat and a mon­o­cle and you’re the Monop­oly man. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less. You’re wel­come.

VALENTINE’S DAY

Fol­low these sim­ple steps to unlim­it­ed ado­ra­tion from your girl: pur­chase sym­pho­ny tick­ets, take tux to dry clean­er, pur­chase sin­gle rose, put a note that says “wear me tonight” on her nicest red dress, prof­it emo­tion­al­ly. If the symphony’s out of town, fret not—piano lessons would wel­come the same appar­el.

CHARITY BALL

If you’ve joined the tuxe­do class, you must con­sid­er your­self poised for phil­an­thropy. Find a for­mal fundrais­ing event and make your gen­eros­i­ty and style known to the world.

BRING ONE TO LONDON

Few places on earth wel­come the tux like Lon­don (although Tuxe­do, N.Y., is a real place). You’ll be wel­comed with open arms strolling in Kens­ing­ton or in any num­ber of the city’s the­aters, muse­ums or tea and crum­pet halls.

HAVE YOUR LADY FRIEND GIVE IT A WHIRL

Yes, women wear tuxe­dos, and usu­al­ly bet­ter than we do. Ellen Page, Angeli­na Jolie, Madon­na — some of the most women of the for­ward-think­ing zeit­geist man­age and own the look. Is your lady edgy enough to pull it off? If she can, the rewards are infi­nite…
