Many parents are not aware that they can go and buy entire boys outfits that come with the shirt, neck-tie, vest and pants for very reasonable prices! These outfits look just as nice as a formal suit or tuxedo, and at online merchants such as www.KidsFormal.com, cost much less! Depending on the event you are attending, if necessary, you may be able to rent a nice jacket to compliment the outfit perfectly, and still being cheaper than purchasing a suit or boys tuxedo. Some merchants, such as http://www.pumpkinformal.com/, even sell these boys outfits with the jacket!
The truth is that most events don’t require a tuxedo to be worn, and for the few occasions that require a tuxedo, it may be worth it to rent the tuxedo, especially if your son is at the age where he outgrows his clothing every two months. However, for many other occasions, it’s worthwhile to invest in either a boys suit or a complete boys outfit. Occasions such as baptisms, funerals, weddings (if your son isn’t in the bridal party), Christmas Eve service, Easter, formal social gatherings and many others are occasions where tuxedos are neither necessary nor appropriate. So, why not purchase your son a complete outfit? He will look just as nice, for half the cost!
