Buying or renting a suit or tuxedo - what's right for you?
Wondering whether you should buy or rent a suit or tuxedo? We might be biased. But let's face it, a tuxedo rental can leave you feeling less than impressed. And, fully custom suits can break the bank. So, we've got a few pointers on when you should buy:
Buying a tux or suit can be cost-effective. If you're planning on wearing it two or more times or customizing your accessories to your style, buying makes sense. (Standard accessories are typically included with a tuxedo rental.) Adding classic staples to your wardrobe will keep you looking smart for years to come.
Investing in a suit or tuxedo is an excellent choice if you're looking for a timeless style. A modern fit blue ssuit or classic black tux made from extra-fine wool can be worn year-round. And, it won't ever go out of style. Pairing with curated accessories (shirt, shoes, tie, cufflinks) will reflect your unique taste.
Buying a tuxedo or suit lets you make a statement at your wedding or formal event. When you own your formal wear, you can have it expertly tailored to your individual body measurements. You'll look your absolute best showing up, dressed to impress, in a perfectly fitted suit or tuxedo.
To sum it up, buying a reasonably-priced suit or tux can be the smart choice. Especially when you can own your tuxedo or suit for less than the cost of a rental. Renting a tux or suit makes sense if: You'll only wear it once. Your size tends to fluctuate seasonally. Or you want to suit up in this season's trending colors, fabrics, and patterns.
