If you are looking for a ceremonial look for your special day or an event, a tuxedo would be the perfect look for you. Renting a tux would be a cost-effective option for you since you don’t get to wear it every day.
Here is some tuxedo rental FAQ answered:
What Is the Cost of a Tuxedo Rental?
Also, if you personalize the look of your tuxedo with special accessories, the cost might change and you could spend more.
When Will I Pay for the Tuxedo Rental?
You pay a part of the rental fee at the point of making the order. You would need to pay up the balance when you come to pick up the tuxedo. Usually, you don’t need to pay anything when returning a tuxedo, except if there is damage, or you returned it later than stipulated.
Will I Need Measurement Before Renting a Tuxedo?
The rental store needs to know your exact measurement to get you a tux that fits perfectly. So, if you walk into the store, the attendants will take your measure. If you are making the order online, you would fill out answers that will help the store know your measurement.
What Happens if the Tuxedo Does Not Fit?
A lot of stores have tailors that would help you change your tuxedo to fit. However, if the required modification will be too much, then you would need to reorder your tux.
What Does the Rental Package Include?
Renting a tuxedo should include ties and cufflinks. These are the most essential accessories you need to wear your tux. If you need more accessories such as watches, pocket square ties, you would need to get them besides the tux.
Sometimes, a shirt might not be part of the tuxedo you are renting. If it is not, you can always add a shirt to the rental for an extra fee. But you wouldn’t need to rent a shirt if you already have one.
What Color of Tuxedo Should I Pick?
The color of the tuxedo you would need will depend on the event you are attending. For a wedding, the couple would determine the color the groomsmen should wear. If it is a funeral, you would need black ties to finish your look.
Should I Rent My Tuxedo in Advance?
You should order a tux about 1-2 months in advance. It will give you enough time for the store to register your interest and have the tuxedo ready. If you rent a tux when it is too close to the event, you would have to pay a rush fee to ensure you have the tuxedo on time.
When Can I Return a Rented Tuxedo?
Different stores have different policies for returning a rented tux. However, returning your tux within three days of the event is appropriate. Check with your store to know their policy.
How to Return a Tuxedo
You can return your tuxedo the same way you received it. You could take it back to the store or ask someone else to take it back for you. Also, you could also mail it back if you received it via mail. Always check with your local store.
