    If you can afford it at the amateur level I would think the obvious choice would be tails because it does seem like what you would "need" as you move up through the levels.

    Although it seems to me if you could only afford one at any level you'd probably be better off with tails...not because I would presume to know what anyone else is thinking but because the reality is at major events they seem to be the norm. I think its great that people experiment because that's how things eventually move forward (except maybe that pesky tanning issue ;)) but until those experiments become the norm, if you're going for a straight this or that it just seems safer to go with tails.

    In my personal opinion I also like the traditional look :D

    Also, a short jacket should be worn with black tie (not white), which makes you look like a maitre d. :)
