    At the place I work at our average is around $140. That includes the coat, pants, upgraded microfiber shirt, vest, tie, and shoes.  Also, I don’t know what its like where you live, but here there isn’t tax on rental items.

    I live in WI where prices are generally a little lower than average.  The tuxes we chose normally cost $110 plus taxes and shoes and stuff.  However, we had an awesome coupon from a bridal expo that put the total cost just under $100 total.

    we’re using MW too…and getting a Ralph Lauren tux for about $100 but that’s because we don’t need tie/vest thingy (using our own long ties) and probably won’t require shoes for the guys. Our jacket is like $89.99 plus $10 for the pants. All depends on what you get!

    I did black tuxes and we gave the groomsmen 2 choices at MW: $120 for the Calvin Klein (would have been $160 but we had a $20 off per tux rental coupon and they all had their own shoes) or $80 for the Joseph & Fiess tux (again, this includes the $20 off and providing their own shoes, otherwise it would be $120 rental).

    I wasn’t there when Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law picked out the tuxes, so I don’t know what brand, but theres are 150 at MW (including suspenders, ties, and shoes…I don’t know about vests).  Since we had five rentals, FI’s either gets his tux free, or gets at $400 gift card.  I know that Fiance looked at some less expensive ones and didn’t like them (surprising, since he really isn’t a fashion forward guy), and that the saleslady talked Future Mother-In-Law out of cumberbunds.

    Oh, and SOCKS came the the rental as well, but I’m pretty sure the guys will wear their own socks and not rental socks.  That is werid.

    Ours are AU$215. It’s about $30 more than other places, but they’re much better quality pure wool suits, so they won’t be so hot. Price includes tux, shirt and Italian silk waistcoat and tie.

    We got ours from Sam Meyers and the total cost for everything including shoes, taxes, etc is $109.  I really like that they carry ring bearer tuxes that match every tuxedo that they have.  We were able to get a tux for the ring bearer that is identical to my FI’s tux for $86.  And because we rented 5 tuxes (4 groomsmen + ring bearer) my FI’s tux was free.

    I think that MW is actually more expensive sometimes than other local places. I don’t know the final price on what we picked out, but I think it’s around $100.

    Our groomsmen paid $75 each. We split the value of the groom’s free tux rental evenly among all the guys, since we felt that was fair, so that contributed toward lowering the price they had to pay. I think we got a fantastic deal.

    I dont recall exactly how much, but i think it was $150-$170

    At Men’s Warehouse, buy 5 rentals get 1 free suit up to $400 in value.  Good deal, kinda.  Free suit, not bad.

    The weddings my Darling Husband has been in (and our wedding) his tux was always between $120-$150.
