A tuxedo is every gentleman’s ultimate dream suit, reserved for some of the most special events of his life. Particularly a wedding is just not complete if the groom doesn’t appear in a tuxedo to take his bride away. Or what about New Years eve? Tuxedos are special, so wear them rarely. Question: Why should you consider buying a Tuxedo then? Two words, quality and look. High quality rented Tuxedos are more expensive than you think. Do your research and you will find out fast how much money you will lose. Exactly, I said lose, because you have to return your masterpiece again. Combined with the challenge of finding the right size, renting a tuxedo is not only a lose-lose situation, it’s time-consuming.
A good thing about the rental service: You can impress everyone each time by renting different styles of tuxedos. BUT! Don’t you get more attention by presenting your own custom tuxedo which can be updated with fancy accessories? You can read more about the add-ons in reason #5.
So, what is it better: Buying or renting a tuxedo?
1. First things first: The price
As already mentioned above, between renting and buying a tuxedo does not need to be a huge price gap. If you have a look at our custom tuxedo collection, you will see what I am talking about. You will probably find a little bit cheaper options when renting a tux but the difference will probably not compensate it. If you can afford to rent a tuxedo, you can also afford to purchase it. Consider it an investment. Probably the second time you have to rent a tuxedo you will be already saving some money.
2. Perfect fit
Tailored tuxedos are made to measure, you can rock them with elegance, charisma and effortless charm. This way, you can look highly stylish without having to step out of your comfort zone. Impress the audience! Maybe to New Years Eve?
If you rent a tuxedo, it will never fit you perfectly. Probably you will even need some adjustments, but it will not fit you as a made to measure one.
3. Don’t try to be the men you wish for, BE THE MEN!
Wearing your own tuxedo is THE self-confident booster, EVER. Wear a tuxedo to the next weeding you are invited to. I guess for sure that you will ask yourself: ‘Aren’t my sleeves a bit too long?’ ‘Do people think that my jacket is a bit too tight?’ Here is the answer: No, not with a custom tuxedo. Isn’t it a huge upgrade by not only believing in your sharp look, but by really knowing your awesomeness?
4. Invest once but forever
If you want to have a high-quality tuxedo, you also have to pay for it. So invest your money right and become the owner of a made to measure tuxedo. Choose the right fabric, set highlights with details to give your awesome item a personal touch. And the best part: This tuxedo only fits you, and your style. No one else ever has worn it before.
5. If you get tired, add accessories
So we already talked about the lifelong benefit of owning a custom tuxedo. But what happens if you need something new and fresh after a few years? Exactly, add accessories. Wear new socks, a new bell, or change the look by getting a new tie, or even better, get a nice bow-tie. Every woman loves them. Check out our add-ons on our website.
6. Think in the long term
Buying a tuxedo can be more economical as it is better to pay for a well-tailored tuxedo once than to rent ones of lower quality repeatedly. You will not have to pay for any repairs to the rental company either. The tux that you buy, on the other hand, will hardly ever need repairs.
How many times are you going to wear it? Maybe you think that you will never wear it again. Are you sure? No more weddings? No more black-tie attire parties? If you rent a tuxedo and then you are invited to another event you will wish you had bought one. Take a look also on the options to own your tuxedo shirt. Yes, tuxedos need a special formal shirt.
7. Impressive photographs:
Pictures last forever, like your made to measure tuxedo, isn't it? Even if it is only for a spontaneous shot with your smartphone, or shots from a professional photographer, don’t you want to look like Harvey Specter? No matter in which situation you are, your Suit just looks AMAZING! Upload them on Instagram and the whole world will see, how impressive and well dressed you are.
