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.

  • Tux in a box, hmmmm.

    • Potsdam, NY,

    When my daughter told me we were all renting tuxes for her wedding online, my first thought was "yeah, right!" As someone born well before cell phones and laptops, my trust level in the process was obviously not very high. I couldn't have been more wrong. The entire process was smooth and seamless. The jacket was not quite the right size due to the numbers I gave them (not their fault), and they sent me a replacement that arrived within two days! The overall quality of the tux and accessories was excellent and once taken out of the box, did not even need pressing. The price was actually less than what it would have been for a week's rental at the local tux dress shop. I highly recommend The Black Tux!

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

  • Satisfied, start to finish, including customer service

    I was part of a large (10 per side) wedding party. Guys scattered all over the country. Groom chose The Black Tux, and I’m glad he did.

    Product shipped on time. Perfect fit. Formal but breathable material despite being 3-piece. I had to have mine altered (I have shorter arms, so suit jacket sleeves had to be shortened), which was as easy as "tailor, take pic of receipt, email said pic, and receive reimbursement (credited to my CC within 48 hours)." Easy unpack/repack. Wicked easy return shipping (we literally dropped the suits off at the hotel concierge and they put them in outgoing FedEx shipping the day after the wedding).

    From start to finish, I simply couldn't be more impressed. All 10 guys in the wedding had different body types, and all 10 guys agreed. Keep. It. Up.

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

  • Highly recommend Black Tux

    • Houston, TX,

    I ordered the rental tuxedo last minute. Less than a week before the wedding. Ordering the tuxedo was simple, fast, and self-explanatory. I paid for overnight shipping and it arrived the very next day. The sleeves on the jacket were just a tad too long for my liking, but I could have dealt with it since my flight for the wedding was the very next day. I went ahead and checked into my options and found out that you guys would be fine with getting the sleeves altered, as long as it wasn't a permanent alteration, or you could overnight the exact jacket but with sleeves an inch shorter. I took a chance and chose to order another jacket, and it arrived the next day before my flight and it fit perfect. It couldn't have been more pleased with the ease and convenience of the whole process.

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

    I read about this service online and tried it for a recent formal event. I love the fact that you get your suit two weeks ahead of time! The jacket didn't fit properly (sleeves were too long), and it was replaced within a few days. Returning the suit was as easy as putting it back in the box and dropping it at a FedEx store. The customer service is exceptional, and I highly recommend The Black Tux.

    This is the second time I've used The Black Tux! Their suits looked amazing for my best friend's wedding. These folks make getting a suit that fits well so easy. Anytime I hear a friend is getting married I tell them about The Black Tux. I will always recommend this service. Keep up the good work!

  • The Black Tux - will always use

    • Orlando, FL,
    • Jul 12, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    The Black Tux offers good choices I normally can't find in my city; or I could but would have to drive around for hours, trying on suits, and I don't feel like doing that. Now, I rent suits I could normally not afford. I probably wear a suit two times a year. Why spend $1000 once, when I can rent QUALITY up to six times a year for that price. They exchange what I need exchanged, and reimburse me for alterations. I cannot imagine why anyone, whose job it is to NOT wear suits/tux, would not just rent. I have my measurements on file with The Black Tux and I'm looking forward to the next rental.

  • Best rental service

    • Binghamton, NY,

    The service was impeccable. I was surprised to see how quickly the suit came, and how amazing everything looked when I tried it on. The sizing guide was right on point! If you've rented a suit from anywhere else before you know it's almost always not sized correctly, and it looks cheap and unprofessional. You will not have this issue with The Black Tux.

    Simple and affordable. They went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect. Great stuff too! I loved that they always kept in touch and were concerned with sizing which is huge. Mine was somewhat last minute, but you couldn’t tell. Return is so easy!

    The tux rental process was very easy. The tux was flawless. At a fault of my own, I needed one size larger in the pants than what I ordered. Customer service was excellent, and the new suit arrived several days before our flight out of the country. I will definitely recommend them to everyone!

    The whole process of renting through them was so simple. All I had to do is know my sizes and then my tux just showed up at my door. I appreciate the simplicity and accuracy of The Black Tux.
