I am having such a tough time with attire for the guys and I need some opinions! My colors are black and white with green accents (olive/ lime green). I really like the idea of a basic black suit, but I am having a hard time finding somewhere to rent a suit ( not a tux) So now I am looking at Tux rentals. I figured some of them look like suits, so I could have the guys wear them like suits. I went to Mens Wearhouse this past weekend and the guy told me that with Tux’s you have to wear a vest with it. I am not the biggest fan of vests but I figured I could have them wear black vests. Well the guy then told me the vest has to match the tie. I was wanting the guys to wear green ties and my fiance to wear a black tie. I really do not want to do green ties and green vests! What are you all doing? Can my guys wear a black suit, black vest and green tie? PLEASE HELP!

I have never heard of this. We are renting a total of 8 tuxes from mens wearhouse. None of them have matching tie and vest combos and my dad is renting just a tux without vest/shirt/shoes… So I’m not sure why this person is telling you this. Try another menswearhouse maybe? Or go back there and tell them you spoke to a manaher in their corporate office.

Mens warehouse doesn’t rent suits?
You don’t have to wear vests. You can always wear cumberbunds instead of vests. But black vests and green ties would definitely clash! I wanted grey ties and black cumberbunds and they told me no.
Jos A Bank has a great tux coordinator online. http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/ContentView?langId=-1&storeId=11001&catalogId=10050&contentKey=TUXEDO_RENTAL

I say rent the black tuxes with the black vest and tie, and maybe you could find green ties to give them as a gift? and they can wear the green ties instead of black?
here is a pick in case you want to see the black on black tuxes from mens wearhouse – best man and Maid/Matron of Honor in my wedding

That is the reason I did not go with Mens Warehouse! I wanted the guys to wear suits instead of tuxes due to our outdoor wedding. We are renting them from Savvi, they have suits to rent! I don’t know if you have one of those by you, but you should check to see. Good Luck!

The vest and tie definitely do not have to match! Our guys all wore black tuxes with black vests and gold ties. No one ever said anything about having them match (and honestly, with bright colors, it usually looks like prom when they do match).
ETA: Here’s what all of our guys looked like!
