So my Fiance and I really don’t want to do tuxes, we want to do suits, but we have had a really hard time finding suits that are reasonably priced. Most places (even places like Macy’s) are $250 or even more (like $500+). I can’t possibly ask my guys to buy a suit because none of them wear suits (we’ve got 2 geologists, a nursing student, a college student). Another issue is that the guys are across 3 states – NY, TX and OR.
We went to Men’s Warehouse and decided to rent a regular black tux, but then “bring it down a notch” by just having them wear suspenders and a tie that matches the bridesmaid dresses. Is that a good move to save money? Or is there another option I’ve not considered?

Some Men’s Wearhouse’s also rent suits.
So do some other rental places.

Is there a Tuxedo Junction near you? They do rental suits. That’s what we’re doing.

We bough Calvin Klein suits at burlington coat factory (same on that was at mens wearhouse for $499) for $150 including shoes and ties. We put FH in black and the GMs in charcoal grey. You could have them sized and buy them for them and they could either pay you or do what we did and use them as part of the Groomsmen gifts.

@julies1949: I haven’t seen any Men’s Warehouses that do suit rentals, and I’ve asked at least a couple around here.
@ninerz113: We have them here in NY and TX, but not OR so that won’t work. Thanks though!
@tksjewelry: I guess we could pay in advance, and mail them their suits to have them tailored. But we’d have to make sure we could get enough in the same style, considering we’re dealing with 4 guys of different sizes.
