Grooms, this one’s for you! Wondering whether you should rent or buy a tuxedo? You’ve come to the right place! Chances are, if you’ve ever been a groomsman or attended a formal wedding, you’ve purchased a tux or suit. Tuxedos aren’t the most fun to wear if they don’t fit properly or they are made of cheap materials, and finding one isn’t always easy (or affordable) either. Today we’re talking about whether you should rent or buy a tuxedo — it’s a big debate out there! Read on to find out more!

Rent or Buy a Tuxedo?

Beau-coup Wedding Favors

The big debate of renting vs. buying a tuxedo (or suit) is one that many grooms struggle with. Should you cough up the money to buy a tuxedo when you could technically rent one for less? To be fair, renting a tuxedo isn’t always easy. Keeping groomsmen on a particular timeline to rent a tuxedo can be tricky. But not anymore… thanks to The Black Tux!

The Black Tux

The Black Tux (TBT) knows the tuxedo rental business has stayed the same for many years, yet renting a tux continually comes with its own set of problems, especially when weddings are involved. They wanted to find a solution to the common gripes from groomsmen of wedding rentals, like suits or tuxedos having a weird, baggy fit; or outdated styles on display mannequins. TBT also realizes how expensive it can be to buy a high quality tuxedo or suit: many are upward of $1200 to purchase, and that’s even before you add in tailoring. But now, TBT has made renting a designer quality tuxedo so much easier and here’s how!

Rent a Tuxedo

When you rent a tuxedo from TBT, your suit or tuxedo is made of 100% Italian merino wool — the good stuff — for as little as $110. With high quality and low price, here’s the icing on top: you can rent your tuxedo completely online. That’s right: no more appointments or racing across town to get there before the doors close. As a bonus, your groomsmen don’t have to travel to the same location (or find a nearby chain) to get fitted.
