We went to Men’s Wearhouse. I think their basic suits start at $49.95. We got full tuxes, so they were $144.95.

What is the size of your wedding party?  Luckily (in some respects!), we have 6 GMs, so Fiance got his rental for free.  The grey Calvin Klein tux we were looking at from MW, was going for around 125 + shoes.  We ended up getting his tux at the bridal salon I got my dress at, and with taxes, the GMs will be paying $155.

I recall a friend who got married in October saying she got her suits (not tuxes) from the same  bridal salon she got her Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from for around $100.

For suits, you could also just have people buy from someplace cheapish like H&M.  Only marginally more expensive and they get to keep it.

I’ve got a friend who makes custom suits for around $400.. You can pick your fabric, lining, suff and label style, buttons, etc. and it’s custom-made to fit his exact measurements.  If you’re interested the website is http://www.djonescollection.com

If you don’t need matching suits, the cheapest thing to do would probably be to buy one off ebay, or find one at a local thrift store.  Almost certainly cheaper than a rental.

My husband bought a suit at Men’s warehouse, we weren’t into renting the tuxes either.  So now he has a suit, it was a buy one get one free sale, so him and the best man split the cost.

I would so hold out for like a Macys or Mens Warehouse sale. They have really inexpensive options! We saw suits last year during a spring sale for about $130…

Mens Wearhouse doesn’t rent suits (except for boys)– they want you to BUY suits. I don’t want to be appearing to spam the website, so I can answer your second question if you’ll e-mail me ([email protected]). And yes, you can buy an inexpensive suit on sale for as little as $130– but don’t forget to add the cost of alterations, shirt, tie, belt, shoes, etc. If he’s only going to wear it once (or even twice), renting is the way to go

Start at Brother’s Tailors in Phoenix, AZ for men’s suits and formal clothes. I’ve been going to Gus for over a year now and you can’t go wrong here. Here’s the website: http://brotherstailors.com/

We’re looking at buying suits from Joseph A Banks…you can buy a suit for under $150 and if you buy 5 (for groomsmen), the groom gets his free!  They have big sales all the time too.

If you’re trying to keep costs really low, I reccommend H&M…you can buy a suit there for pretty cheap.
