BHS also have a reasonable selection. As you have a year to go wait for the January sales and just hope he doesn't put too much weight on in the meantime. You should also allow for some expansion while on the cruise!

My Husband refers to ths phenomenon as "damp wardrobe syndrome"! This house seems to suffer it fairly regularly----but oddly it only affects men's clothing!!!!Cynthia.

Hi, your husband would probably only need a black dinner jacket (less luggage).My husband only takes one but varies the dickie bow tiesand shirts. Charity shops are one good place to look or else try Ebay. Matalan have bargain DJ's usually and of course M&S. Enjoy the search. Sue.

Hi! The white tux is becoming less visible on cruises these days & as stated by McKindland, Matalan is certainly worth a look for a black dj plus Asda, Tesco & BHS. Regards Wilba.

One doesn't wear a white tux unless you are south of the equator in the tropics (or you are a waiter....). Not sure what your definition of 'reasonably priced'is but DH got one from the outlet mall at Bicester Village, and it has a designer label. We sold his old one on eBay for £15 so start there perhaps.

Costa Concordia Dismantlin...

By Sam Smith

The Costa Concordia tragedy seems like so long ago now so I was surprised to hear that the dismantling and recycling of the infamous cruise liner has only just been completed in Italy, marking the official end to final phase of what is considered the largest maritime salvage job in history.I never really thought about what a massive job the whole process has been, the salvage operation took 2 years and the dismantling a further 3 years.The consortium responsible for the Costa Concordias disma...

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
