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.

  • Truly quality service

    The Black Tux was easy to work with at every point of interaction. The clothes arrived in a timely manner and without any issues in regards to fit. The quality of the actual clothes was good, on par with any other rental company I've done business with. I had a travel problem that caused me to have a late return, and the customer service team was very easy to work with in getting the late fee waived. Overall a very positive experience.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Slim-fit wedding suit

    I placed an order through The Black Tux for a slim fitting navy suit. Just as described, the suit showed up several weeks prior to the event with clear directions on what to do if the suit does not fit as expected. Of course, with my expert measuring skills assisted by their video directions, my suit fit perfectly. Great service and great company! I would highly recommend The Black Tux to anyone who is looking for a special occasion suit.

    Great job.

  • Awesome service, great quality, saved the day!

    • New York,

    I needed a tux with 4 days until my event, and they were able to send me out a tux with no problem, which got there 2 days before my event. Perfect fit all the way around, great quality, and the customer service on the phone was super easy.

    The best part, returning it was as easy as dropping it off in the same box it arrived in at a local FedEx location 2 blocks from my apartment. I will definitely be using them again. To be honest, I would have bought that tux.

  • Exceptional customer service and quality clothing

    • Philadelphia, PA,
    • Nov 18, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    A great experience all around. Proactive and helpful customer service with surprisingly good quality clothing for the price. The shoe size I ordered came a bit big. I let our representative know (Kimberly C.), and she shipped out a smaller size immediately. The return process is a breeze with pre-paid labels. I would highly recommend!

  • Best tux ever

    I had an event where I traveled from home to New York City on a fast timetable. The tux came to me as the best fit I've had (aside from custom tailored). I was able to easily travel with it. Customer service was stellar.

  • Great product, better service

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Nov 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Everything looked great, and it arrived in time with everything I needed. Their team even recommended a different size to better fit, and truly, it did fit better.

    The only critique was that the collar of the shirt was a little irritable, and halfway through the wedding reception, I had to ditch the bow tie and unbutton my top button. I submitted this feedback to the company not expecting a response, but was quickly reached out to with follow-up questions. They even refunded me for the cost of the shirt! Great company.

  • Very happy with service provided.

    The whole process was so convenient. And the tux looked just as I hoped it would. Also, I received numerous compliments at the wedding we attended too. Highly recommend this service. We plan to use it in the future.

    Great company

    Great company to work with; very friendly and I would highly recommend. We actually ordered three tuxes from them for our son's wedding, one of which was the velvet jacket that our son wore. He received several comments and was asked where he rented from! Thank you for making his day special! We will be going with The Black Tux in the future!

  • Black Tux saves the day

    I originally had all of my groomsmen order suits from Combatant Gentleman, but with the wedding a month away I had not heard anything or gotten any suits. So I had to scramble and find what to do, and that’s when The Black Tux came to the rescue. They responded to my tweet to Combatant Gentleman and helped make the wedding a success and helped everyone look great. The suits all came in and fit everyone perfectly. It took something that had turned into a lot of stress into something that was so simple and easy.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
