First and foremost, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, but it seemed to be correct.

As it's going to be quite a while until I can do this myself, I was wanting to know if it would be possible for me to pay one of the tailors on this forum to make me a black tie outfit, and how much it would cost me. If not, does anybody know where I could buy one? Thanks.

How long is a piece of string? Tailors everywhere charge varying prices depending on cloth and construction. Where are you based? As you will have to factor in at least three visits to the tailor in question, one to be measured and pick cloth and style, one to be fitted and one to try on and collect the completed garment. More may be needed. You might be able to save some money by buying cloth from a jobber and bringing it to a tailor.
