Tuxedosonlien.com Owner and Founder explains why it makes more sense to buy a tuxedo rather then ren Renting vs Buying a Tuxedo
Transcript:
If we look at prices of tuxedo rentals nowadays, most tuxedos rentals are above $100. The reason for that is cost of labor. It costs a lot to do a full service tuxedo rental, in other words, to measure you, put it together, give it to you, take the risk that you might not bring it back, or you might bring it back damaged, and the wear and tear on the tuxedo itself. When buying a tuxedo, you don't take all of those things into consideration. First of all, you're wearing a brand new tuxedo. Secondly, it's at a lower cost because it is not made to be durable to be rented for 30+ times. The item that you're buying is at a lower cost because there's less construction. It's also lower cost because the majority of the tuxedos we sell online are polyrayon fabric, and the fabric is of lower cost. They are imported from the orient, and that is also of lower cost, but not necessarily of lower quality. With all those considerations in mind, and with the consideration that we have cut out the middleman, we can sell you a tuxedo at a little over the $100, which is the same price you're going to rent one at. In fact you're getting a brand new tuxedo; one that fits and feels better, that you don't have to worry about returning, and that you can wear for next time at the same price that you would get a tuxedo that you wore that someone else has worn several times. Because it has to be durable, a rental tuxedo feels like cardboard. Ours feels soft, supple, and lightweight.

Here are some FAQ about wedding tuxedos

When should I reserve my tuxedo?
Its never too early to shop for your tuxedos. In general, you should start picking out the men's formalwear after you have bought the wedding dress, and decided on the colors and style of the bridesmaid dresses. The first visit should be with your fiancÚ to decide on the styles of the groom's and attendant's tuxedos. Based on the colors of the wedding, you can choose vests or cummerbunds for the attendants. The groom should always insist on trying his tuxedo as a precaution; choosing from a picture can be deceiving.

How do I decide on accessories?
Generally, the attendants wear accessories associated with the colors that are chosen for the wedding. Full back vests are the newest items in men's formalwear. They are more comfortable and will make you look like you own your tuxedo because most tux shops don't carry full back vests. We have the largest selection of full back vests in stock in the Los Angeles area. They come in all colors and various styles. The professionals at Gregory's will help you choose the accessories for your party. Another important accessory is the shoe. We have three beautiful styles to chose from. The entire wedding party should wear the same type of shoes in order to keep the party in unison and to assure a good look. You can try on all of these accessories at our store until you find the right ones.

Who should wear a tuxedo?
The Groom and attendants of course, but not exclusively. The ring bearer and candle boys should also be in a tuxedo. The fathers will look and feel better in a tuxedo rather than a suit. After all, it wouldn't look good if the bride's father gave her away in a suit. It would also be a big compliment to the grandfathers to have them wear a tuxedo. Today's weddings are now calling for guests to wear tuxedos as well. The way to do this is to write Black Tie Invited.

Many of my attendants are out of town. How do I get them fitted?
You can print out the form at the bottom and take it to any Tuxedo shop in the country. They will give you a courtesy fitting, and then you can fax, call in, or E-mail us the measurements and we will prepare the tuxedos that you choose for that person.

What if something doesn't fit?
We insist that you try on your tuxedo before picking it up. If there is something wrong, all our stock is on the premises. We can either alter or change your tuxedo in ten minutes. Ask if other tuxedo shops can do this; it is very rare.

Please print out this handy measurement form and take it to your local formalwear shop for a courtesy fitting.
