Purchasing a tuxedo seems like a big investment, especially if you only plan to wear it to one formal event. What if we told you there’s a better way to go about it? Time to consider designer tuxedo rentals.
If you’re not used to formal wear and don’t know what to choose when renting a tuxedo, we’re here to help you. Here’s 5 things you should know about designer tuxedo rentals.
5 Things to Know about Designer Tuxedo Rentals
Definition – Tuxedo is a complete outfit that includes a jacket (with satin lapels and a boutonniere hole), trousers (usually with a silk stripe down the side), a bow tie, and often, a cummerbund. A tuxedo jacket comes in various styles as well. Some are classic while other models are more stylish and therefore come and go according to the current trends.
Colors – A traditional tuxedo comes in black or white, but you can also find a variety of gray, silver and ivory tuxedos among other trendy colors.
Budget – Tuxedo rental prices will depend on how long you expect to use the tux for as well as what kind of tuxedo you want to rent. You should expect to pay anywhere from $50 for a conventional tux to $200 for top-notch designer tuxedo rental.
Occasion – Is the event you’re attending a black-tie or white-tie affair? Is it at night or during the day? Looking for a classic, more conservative tuxedo or want to go all out and choose something more stylish? What your date will be wearing? It’s important to ask yourself all these questions before choosing your designer tuxedo rental to ensure you’re dressed appropriately for the occasion.
Timeline – Make sure to reserve your tuxedo from an expert tailor as early as possible. For big occasions and busy event seasons (wedding, prom), we recommend reserving your tuxedo rental one to three months in advance.
