When it comes to weddings, most brides dedicate a huge amount of time to finding that one perfect dress. Wouldn’t it make sense that the groom looks equally good in his suit as well? No sweat, The Black Tux is here to give all stylish grooms and their groomsmen a great reason to celebrate.
Too often, the words “tux rental” conjure images of awkwardly fitting suits that look like they came right off a 90s catalog, which honestly, isn’t really a problem if you actually had a 90s-themed wedding. For the rest who’d rather your leading man channel contemporary flair, you’ll know that when it comes to a great looking suit, the perfect fit is everything. Which is exactly what sets The Black Tux apart from other rental companies.
Before we delve further into why The Black Tux is different from the average tux rental company, let’s feast our eyes on the modern man’s must-have: a good-looking grey suit (or three!)…
The Black Tux story began a few years ago, when its co-founder, then a groom himself, Andrew Blackmon, realized the suits offered by traditional tuxedo shop rentals were just not good enough. He and his groomsman, Patrick, concurred that guys deserve better, especially for their weddings, and together, they founded The Black Tux. The Black Tux solves the problems inherent with run-of-the-mill tux rentals: lack of quality, fabrics, poor fit and selection of styles, and not to mention the hassle of dragging the guys to and from the ole tux shop for fittings and, ugh, returns.
Okay, what's The Black Tux game-changing strategy? Offer better suits (no cheap polyester pieces here, think red carpet worthy, fine wool tuxes in modern cuts) and make the suit rental experience as stress-free as possible. Order a suit – or an entire, professionally-styled outfit, complete with accessories -- online from their great selection of modern and classic formal wear styles. Your suit will arrive 14 days ahead of the event. If something’s not perfect? A new suit will be sent right away – for free. Returns? They’ve got that covered too. Just send your order back in the box it arrived in, use the provided prepaid return label and send it back within 3 days. That simple? Yes!
Freaking out about dress codes (cocktail attire? black tie optional? help!) and the whole "Tuxedo vs. Suit" business? You'll love this Style Guide! It's part of The Black Tux's The Grooms Guide, but it has plenty of very useful info for guests as well.
Brides and grooms who might prefer a more traditional retail experience can also make an appointment to visit The Black Tux showrooms or shop-in-shops at select Nordstrom stores. Here you can personally experience The Black Tux's fit, quality and customer service. An ambassador is at hand to help with sizing and style advice, while you and yours get to view and try on different styles from their collection.
