Suit and tuxedo rentals for black tie events

Whether you’re attending your grandmother’s centennial birthday bash, an industry-specific awards night, or you have a hot date for Valentine’s Day, looking good is a must. When hosting or attending a formal event, it’s important to dress the part. In fact, some formal events require something specific: black tie attire.

Black tie attire for men generally refers to tuxedos, and can be accessorized with a number of elegant accessories to add extra gravitate to the look. Some classic accessories for black tie attire include bowties, cufflinks, a smart pocket square, and a stately dress watch. Don’t forget the cologne.

Despite the term “dress code,” there is still plenty of flexibility for stylish men suiting up for formal events. Elements like bowtie color, for example, can be chosen according to taste or event theme.

Have a look at our collection of over twenty merino wool suits and tuxedos— a number of them are perfect for black tie events. Once you’ve chosen one that suits your style as well as the occasion, you can browse our selection of formal accessories, so your look will be 100% you.
