“When it comes to the traditional brick-and-mortar, laminated-catalog, outdated-inventory, advertise-low-and-get-upsold-in-the-store tuxedo rental experience, we are seriously questioning the status quo. And you should too.”

“The idea for TGS was born from Jeanne’s personal experience planning her 2013 New Year’s Eve wedding. With no other options available to affordably outfit their groomsmen, she and her husband were forced to go the usual rental route only to be disappointed by the logistics, poor fit, and price”
Next on our list is none-other than The Groomsman Suit. This company is completely anti-rentals and instead offers economically priced suits and tuxes for purchase. They boast an offering of one of the largest size ranges of any suiting brand and make it super easy to find your perfect fit. Once you tell Groomsmen Suit who’s in your crew and what they should wear, their team will introduce themselves and make sure everyone gets what they need, so you can focus on everything else.

“The Black Tux was founded in 2013 by Andrew Blackmon and Patrick Coyne, longtime friends who, while preparing for Andrew’s wedding in 2011, saw an opportunity to offer men an alternative to traditional tuxedo and suit rental outlets. After their experience renting for Andrew’s wedding, they decided to explore different ways to improve the tuxedo rental process.”
While Generation Tux offers rentals, and The Groomsman Suit offers suits for purchase, the next groomsmen suit store offers both! As the host of the event, you can dictate which suit/tux is required for your crew, and it is up to them whether they’d like to rent or purchase their attire. How cool is that? With flexible options for rentals, groomsmen have 3 days to get their rental in the mail after the big event. Plus, The Black Tux has a partnership with Nordstrom for an in-person fitting experience at certain locations. But of course, if you can’t get to a showroom or Nordstrom location, they offer free at home try ons too!
