My guy is 6’6″. There was no charge for extended sizes. We rented his suit from Mens Wearhouse and had a great experience. I wish I had more pictures from the day of how much taller he is, but our photograoher was really good about masking it.

Darling Husband is 6’1″ and 350 lbs.  We rented a tuxedu from Men’s Warehouse, but without a cumberbund, vest, bowtie, or pocket square.  It was just the black tux, standard notch collar, with a white tie.  The best man was in a matching tux with a blue tie.  They had his size available, with no alteraions.  There was no upcharge, and it was easy to rent and return.  His shoes, socks, cufflinks, button covers, tie, jacket, shirt and pants were all included, and I think we paid $120ish.  Oh, and our wedding was at 1pm.

@ThisDeluxeLife:  Not a problem 🙂  For a 1pm wedding, I was really considering suits, but we ran into a snag with the military stuff.  DH is a retired sailor, and couldn’t fit dress whites anymore, so the alternative is a black tux with mini medals.  We ran into the same issue with cost of suits too – and DH’s brother is 6’6″ and about 120lbs soaking wet – no luck on suits there at all!

@nyscpa2be:  Agree, we rented from Mens Warehouse for my 6’9″ husband.

He is tall, but not especially big. We normally having trouble finding things tall enough that arent too wide. They were able to fit him no problem with no upcharge. We got the full shabang for a tux. They were able to fit all the groomsmen who vary a ton in sizes in all corners of the country as well.

Actually DH’s tux was free because the groomsmens got their tuxes there too.

@ThisDeluxeLife:  Thanks, you’re so sweet!! We definitely splurged on our tuxes, they are the new Vera line at MW and ran right at $200, but the other gray one we looked at was around $150. One of my BMs got married in June and three of her four were plus sized and they had no problem getting the right sizes.
