Tuxedos for women in Los Angeles

I have a formal work thing coming up. We need to dress up, but neither of us wear dresses. I (female) am more femme than my spouse (also female), but not dress-wearing femme. The search for matching-ish tuxes has been harder than anticipated. We are open to both renting and buying. Where to go?

Recommendations for LGBT-friendly custom clothiers in S. Ontario/GTA?

I'm getting married in the fall, and I'm also a queer, nonbinary person (assigned female at birth). I'm planning on wearing a suit, and I'd really like to have one custom made. I'd also like to avoid any gender-policing BS from potential tailors, so I'm looking for suggestions. If anyone knows of any shops in Southern Ontario (Greater Toronto Area would be ideal) that are known to be LGBT friendly, I would greatly appreciate being pointed in their direction!

Appropriate Fancy Fundraiser attire for an Indian-themed event

I'm attending a fancy fundraiser soon. The theme is "A trip to India", but probably 1/2 of 1% of those in attendance will be non-white, much less from India or Indian-American. Everyone is expected to dress in "Indian style formal wear". Help me respect the event and the entire country of India, while not embarrassing myself. [more inside]

Where can I hire a formal dress in Sydney, with in-person fitting?

Surprise! I'm going to a black tie event on Saturday night. I have nothing to wear and therefore need to hire a dress. Everything I can find on Google so far is an online order. I would prefer a brick and mortar building where I can try on someone's inventory of dresses; I've done this before in other countries so I know it's A Thing. Where can I do this in Sydney?

Morning dress - where to buy/rent for a Miami wedding?

I'd like me and my groomsmen to be clad in morning attire when I get married in Miami a year or so hence. Morning dress is relatively rare in the US, and I was wondering if anyone who has had experience putting together this look for a wedding can recommend any good outfitters. We're probably going to buy for the groom and rent for the groomsmen. Any suggestions? There is plenty of lead time so I would be open to ordering from a non-Miami location. Any other advice on pulling off morning attire greatly appreciated!

Of ascots and collars

Hi, Do you happen to know where one may find an ascot in Chicago? Also, what type of collar should be worn with an ascot?--I was thinking of the open collar, summery ascot (in case there are multiple variations). Sorry to "ascot" so many times in such a short span of time. Yours in mildly ironic fashion, Mike

What should I look for in a nice suit?

Weddings and formal affairs oh boy! This next year will be chock full and since my regular job attire does not include a suit I am clueless when it comes to what is necessary and/or nice to have. I do not need anything different or special, but well-fitted is a must. What type of suits are best all year round, easy to alter (by a tailor, not myself), and just look good?
