My prom is coming up and i was wondering if i should rent a tux or just buy one. My dad was telling me that I might as well buy a Tux because renting one isonly a few dollars cheaper.

yeah, I don't think I'm ever going to use a tux again but my dad was telling me that it would be good to have one. Has any of you guys bought a tux? How much do they usually cost?

Don't buy a tux. Chances are by the time you have to dust it off the cut and style will be out of fashion.

Besides, most guys toss on a few pounds after highschool as their metabolism slows. Chances are you'll have a hell of a time fitting back into your'prom tux' anyway.

Dads has it wrong.

There has been 0 times since my highschool prom that I have even SEEN someone in a tux (besides weddings that I wasn't standing up in) Rent it, likeeveryone else said find a spot that's local or "hood" and you'll get it for around $50 including shoes and everything. Avoid spots in the mall at all costs.

It's not even funny how terrilbe these people are.

I've wore pretty much the same jacket size (42 or 44 reg, depending on brand) with a slightly tailored lenght and sleeve for 5 years now. They had thisclown measure me up the other day for a rental tux for a buddies wedding, and he tried to put a 46 long on me. I looked like a 3rd grader in a Steve Harveysuit.

I #*+%!%+ to dood about how terrible the sizing was, and he insisted that it fit "perfect", and that the 7 blazers I had at home that were 42 reg and44 reg from my tailor (who's been making suits and tailoring his entire life) were "terribly sized"....I told them to order the 42R....After Iexplained that a "break" was pant length.....

What are you 17? 18? Chances are by the time you are ready to wear it again, it wont fit. Rent one.

Go find smaller mom and pop places. They tend to be better with keeping up on current trends (Ever notice how nobody looks like James Bond in a tux theyrented from the mall?) They're much cheaper, as they often manufacture the stuff themselves and don't have some national cleaning/altering/shippingwarehouse with 20,000 dip**** employees.

Preach!! After looking at all my prom pics, I really noticed that my suit was oversized and way too boxey. I swear tailors these days have never looked intorecent styles. I'm a 40 regular, but she sized me up for a 44
. Had me looking like Choppa on some zoot suit %#+.



Oh yeah, my recommendation is to buy one, I think I dished a little over 100 for my rental and I found a better one OTR at Syms for $150


And stay away from patent leather shoes and cumberbunds!!
