About The Black Tux

If you’re looking for inexpensive, high-quality tuxedo and suit rentals, The Black Tux claims to take the hassle out of the whole process by providing online ordering, and pre-paid shipping both ways. On top of this, The Black Tux even claims to provide a Fit Guarantee on all of their orders, which can help you look your best on the day of your event.

But can the Black Tux really help you avoid the last-minute pickups, low quality materials, and high prices associated with traditional suit and tux rental shops? Let’s suit up and find out.

Quick Facts About The Black Tux

By partnering with one of America’s top suit-makers, The Black Tux claims to provide wool and cotton suits that feature 150s Merino wool, classic and slim fits, and a wide range of accessories, for prices much lower than traditional tux shops. With this in mind, The Black Tux carries jackets ranging in size from 34-58 inches, and pant waist sizes from 28-54 inches—although all pants come with a 2-inch waist adjuster. If you can’t find the size you need, the company claims that they can manufacture a custom size if necessary, though this will require extra production time.

Because The Black Tux rental process is handled completely online, it occurs over 4 steps:

  1. Visit The Black Tux website, pick the individual items you like, or choose from a range of complete outfits. Once you’re finished, add them to your cart.
  2. Get measured. To accomplish this, you can visit your local tailor in advance, or use the 10-minute measurement tool on The Black Tux website. If necessary, the company can even send you a free tape measure.
  3. Your garments will be shipped via FedEx and will arrive seven days prior to your event. If you’re within 14 days of your event and need something ASAP, a rush shipping and handling fee will apply.
  4. On the business day after your event, place your garments back in the original box, add the pre-paid shipping label, and send it back to the company.

The Black Tux Pricing & Refund Policy

The Black Tux claims that their suits and tuxes would retail for $1,200, although they can be rented for the following prices:

  • Tuxedos: $95 - $120
  • Suits: $95 - $110
  • Shirts: $15
  • Vests: $15
  • Neckwear: $5 - $10
  • Cufflinks & Studs: $5 - $10
  • Shoes: $15 - $30
  • Misc. Items (Suspenders, cummerbund, tie clips, etc.): $7 - $15

All rentals include free shipping both ways, unless your order requires a rush shipping fee. Your garments will arrive folded in a garment bag, and should be ready to wear right out of the box. If there are any wrinkles, the company claims they should naturally fall out within a couple hours.

The Black Tux rentals come with a Fit Guarantee, which means that if your tux or suit doesn’t fit properly, the company will cover the cost of alterations, or will send a replacement item.

If you cancel your order more than 30 days prior to your event, you’ll be eligible for a full refund. Inside of 30 days however, you’ll receive a merchandise credit that can be applied to future orders. If your order has already shipped, you can send it back to the company as soon as you receive it, and you’ll then receive a merchandise credit upon arrival.

Keep in mind that if you fail to send your suit or tux back on the first business day after your event, you may be subject to a late fee of 25% of the rental price, per day.

For questions, concerns, or returns, you’ll need to contact The Black Tux customer support at 888-717-1588.

    The Black Tux was great. The jacket fit great. The pants were a little long, but that's because I'm a little short and in between sizes. I had them hemmed, and they were perfect. It's not the same as getting a made to measure to measure tux, but it's about as close as you can get without paying big money to get a custom tux. Thank you!

    I loved the process! It was very easy. All of the customer support reps were friendly and knowledgeable.

    I like the fitting feature on the site. This was very helpful to me, as my son has never been fitted for a formal suite before. Evan after we placed our order the fitting department made recommendations on a different pants size they thought we should consider, their recommendation was spot on.

    My son loved his tux and had a great time at Prom 2018!

    Thank you!

    A very easy and efficient ordering process, perfect fit, cost savings, simple return process - what more could you want!

    An all-around excellent experience. It looks like traditional tuxedo rental will be going the way of the buggy whip.

  • Highly recommend

    The tailored experience. The measurements are specific to my son, and the garments are selected to complement his measurements, but most importantly when he doesn't fit the norm, their customer service team ask, "how can we help?" They listen and listen and respond, and I love the catered attention and experience. It's definitely worth the money.

    This is my second time ordering. It’s so convenient, the clothes are great quality and fit perfectly. I’ll rent here from now on for sure. Great for a wedding, an opening night, a night out, a gala, or when you just want to feel like a rockstar!

  • The Black Tux is a breeze

    Everything fit perfectly, arrived as promised, and made being the Father of the Bride a breeze. So glad The Black Tux was the company our new son-in-law chose for such a precious day. The process was so simple. Thanks for no headaches, and we all looked sharp!

  • It's awesome

    It's easy, cheap, convenient, and just downright awesome. They made everything from first placing my order to shipping back easy. Awesome sexy tuxes that are breathtaking. I wish they had more color options, but they made up for it in so many other areas. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Definitely recommend.

    It's a great company. For the same (or less) amount of money as going to a tux rental place you get a quality suit with a lot of great choices and don't have to deal with salespeople. It's an easy system, they get it to you in plenty of time, and it's easy to send back. I love it.

  • Great experience!

    The website was easy to navigate, my tux, shoes, and accessories arrived two weeks before my event, as expected, and returning it was simple and convenient. I will definitely use The Black Tux for my next formal event. Thanks!

  • Absolutely amazing

    The suit was absolutely amazing. I was complimented by everyone. It is made out of excellent materials. It was very comfortable, I was in it for almost 12 hours, and it was great. I will definitely rent again! Thank you so much for making it an amazing night!

  • Great prom tux experience

    • Richmond, VA,
    • May 1, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    After a very late decision by my son to go to prom, the local tux rental place was “not taking orders.” A panicked internet search lead me to The Black Tux.

    Our order came within two days! The shoes were a little big, I reached out that day, and had a new pair within two days. I did have the jacket and pants pressed at the cleaners, and the shirt starched, as they were a bit creased, even though he really didn’t care. Otherwise, we were really pleased with the tux.

    It was great just to drop it at FedEx to return. All in all, it was a good experience and I would highly recommend The Black Tux!
