The tuxedo is more of a social necessity.

Back during the frothy days of the dot-com bubble, DW's high-tech company sent a thousand salespersons and their partners to Sydney as a reward for making their quotas. DW was the HR director for the sales organization so we got to go, too.

One requirement was that I either bring a tux or arrange to rent one upon arrival, so I went out and bought one. The reason was that the company rented the Opera House for a private performance for us and formalwear was required for that and the pre-performance dinner. I still have the tux, which is a little big on me right now, I guess. I say "guess" because I haven't worn it since.
