Online Suit or Tux Rental Myths Busted

I’m sure you’ve heard some nasty rumors about rent­ing men’s suits and tuxe­dos, espe­cial­ly for your wed­ding, but just know that these myths are not always true, espe­cial­ly for online suit and tuxe­do rentals. You should still be wary of small, local suit shops, but just know that there’s anoth­er way.


You might think that you won’t be able to pick up your out­fit until the day before the wed­ding. This is only true for those small rental stores, where there is no room for error. If some­thing doesn’t fit right, there’s not enough time to get it replaced.

With Gen­er­a­tion Tux, all suits and tuxe­dos are deliv­ered to your door 14 days before the wed­ding for a final fit­ting. Any fit needs are han­dled eas­i­ly through our US based ser­vice depart­ment and sent direct­ly to the par­ty mem­ber. No exchanges. No tai­lors. Just an adjust­ed gar­ment right to your door.

Low Quality

Many suit stores and oth­er rental places do in fact suits and tux­es made from poly­ester blend fab­rics. This can cause suits to be ill-fit­ted, itchy and hot. But Gen­er­a­tion Tux’s suits and tuxe­dos are made with 100 per­cent wool. You may hear wool and think stuffy sweaters, but don’t let that fool you. This mate­r­i­al is actu­al­ly designed to be cool in warm sea­sons and fit much bet­ter.

Poor Fit

Many small rental stores get their suits and tuxe­dos from a mass retail­er that have low-qual­i­ty mate­ri­als and stan­dard sizes. Some alter­ations can be made, but even after your uncom­fort­able fit­ting, there’s no guar­an­tee for a per­fect fit.

Gen­er­a­tion Tux takes care of all your siz­ing online, so you’ll nev­er have to go into a store for a fit­ting. Your entire par­ty will receive their look 14 days before the event, and if some­thing doesn’t fit exact­ly to your lik­ing, there’s plen­ty of time to send it back for alter­ations. Plus, if you’re not sold on your look and fit just yet, the groom can try every­thing on months in advance to make sure every­thing goes off with­out a hitch.

Most rental stores require you to return your suit or tux the day after your event, all while you’re nurs­ing a hang­over and run­ning late to the air­port. Gen­er­a­tion Tux allows you three days to pack every­thing up at your con­ve­nience and send it back in our pre­paid pack­ag­ing. No trav­el­ing back to an out-of-the-way suit shop; just drop the box off at any UPS store.

With Gen­er­a­tion Tux’s low-stress process you’ll bare­ly have to think twice about look­ing great for you wed­ding. Still not con­vinced? Groom’s can test dri­ve your look months in advance, so you know you’re get­ting exact­ly what you want. See what we have to offer to make your union extra­or­di­nary.
