Concert Apparel Buyer's Guide
 

Men 

Black bow tie, white shirt, tuxedo coat and trousers. Black dress shoes (no boots) and black socks. No cummerbunds 

 
 
 

Price Point 

I would go with a used tuxedo.  Full tux sets can be purchased from $50 to $90 (including shirt and tie).  New tux packages usually begin at around $100 per set.

There are several vendors online that will charge as little as $39 for a dress.  You can probably put together some black slacks and a black blouse for that or less.
