Men’s Formalwear Rental for Black Tie events

Whether you’re attending your grandmother’s centennial birthday bash, a quinceañera, company holiday party, homecoming, formal or you have a hot date for Valentine’s Day, looking good is a must. When hosting or attending a formal event, like a gala or prom, 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 pocket square, and a stately dress watch.

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.

View our collection of 20+ merino wool suits and tuxedos— a number of them are perfect for black tie events. Once you’ve chosen a suit/tuxedo style that suits your style and special occasion, you can browse our selection of formal accessoriesto customize your look.

We’ve suited thousands of gents up for formal events, including for quinceañeras, proms, formals, company holiday parties, homecomings and more. Take a look at our gallery to get some real life inspiration of black tie looks and styles.
