If you have them rent tuxes from a national chain, they can probably all try them on locally (you can probably register the style with the chain, like you can do with bridesmaids dresses at David’s), and then you could either have them all pick up right before they fly to the wedding, or rent them locally and one person can pick them all up/return them all.

We had a slightly less formal wedding, so this may not work for you, but another idea is to just let them wear black suits they already own. Saves them money, saves you stress. That’s what we did and it turned out great!

Like daydreamwanderer was saying, if you go with a national chain it’s not too big of a deal. We’re using Jim’s Formal Wear for our tuxes and so far it’s been easy. As long as your groomsmen can get measured and send their measurements to you, you can do the rest if it makes you feel better. You could order them locally and have them get them the day of the rehearsal or something.

I would also use a chain, but you also might offer to make the appointments for them.  I would also just have them send the measurements right to the store, one less thing to keep track of.  Our groomsmen are local and I still had to make their appointments for them and put it in their blackberrys too.

I definitely think that getting it at a chain store would be helpful.  Or you could also just get them locally where the wedding is taking place.  The groomsmen can get their measurements done and send you their info.  Then when they arrive in town for the wedding they can pick up their tuxes and make any alterations if necessary.
