Three Reasons to Buy Men’s Tuxedo Suits
Written by Milton B. Aguilar
It is very likely that you will, at some point in your life, be expected to attend an event in a tuxedo. It could be a wedding, a religious ceremony, or a formal reception. No matter the occasion, you’ll encounter the dilemma of whether you should buy or rent men’s tuxedo suits. It is a better idea to buy your tuxedo instead of renting it.
Buying Lets You Keep Your Tuxedo
Many people are under the false impression that renting a tuxedo is a lot cheaper than buying one. In reality, renting a tuxedo will cost you about half the price of what buying one would cost. That’s not so bad. But what if you need to wear a tuxedo again? Do you really want to go through the hassle of having to rent a suit, shirt, and shoes all over again? As it turns out, a tuxedo can easily pay for itself once you wear it two or more times. That means you will have saved a lot of money and time by not having to go through the rental process again.
A Tailored Fit
You want to look your best anytime you have to wear a tuxedo, so how it fits is important. There are, undoubtedly, many locations that rent men’s tuxedo suits and do a great job of correctly measuring their customers. Unfortunately, not all places get measurements right. You don’t want your sleeves too long or your pants baggy. If you are buying your tuxedo, you can have it tailored to your exact specifications, since you are the only one who is going to wear it. Consider pairing your tuxedo with shoes like the Florsheim Asset Bike Toe Oxford.
Rentals Have Lots of Mileage
Most of the time, you won’t know where a rental tuxedo has been. It has possibly been to countless weddings, honeymoons, and who knows where else. It is unknown whether it has been cleaned properly. At least when you buy a tuxedo, you know it has not been worn by anyone before and that you get to break it in yourself. So the next time you’re in need of a tux, just remember that it’s better to spend your hard-earned money on something that you get to keep. Not only that, but your purchased tuxedo will fit better than any rental ever could, and you’ll know that no one else has worn it before.
