We are going through Men’s Wearhouse. It is just easier for everyone because they are everywhere. You can pick and choose what you want to rent from them. We aren’t using there pocket squares because I don’t like any of their colors. I am going to make them from the same material as the girls dresses.

Here is a picture of what the guys will be wearing.

We used Men’s Warehouse.  Here’s one of our teaser pics of the guys…The groom’s vest and tie are ivory, and the groomsmen were in mermaid…tip…if you go with a bright color with a creative name just call it by it’s pedestrian name…If I had said the vest were blue it would have been just fine…but the minute I used the word “mermaid” I got all sorts of lip from the groomsmen for months 🙂  Too bad for them…blue…mermaid…they were wearing them!

We’re using Men’s Warehouse as well, we have guys all over so conveinence was our big thing. I thought looking at the ties in store they didn’t look the greatest, but once on, I think they look ok.

@nearfame: thanks for posting this.  Fiance is wearing a white shirt/ivory tie/vest and I wasn’t sure how it would look.  Looks great on your groom!  LOL on the mermaid thing.  We are going with MW too.  People are all over the country and friends had a positive experience.

@bells: The ascot/cravat ties things come with the suit. They are a rental item.

Most guys these days don’t know how to tie a tie, so that is what they give out the clip ons. You can always opt out of getting ties with your tuxes/suits and purchase or make non-tie on ties for your guys. They can be part of their thank you gift.

They do pre-ied so there is a uniformed look. Some guys tie their ties differently so you may get a couple different knots at the top..at least that’s what men’s wearhouse told us.  If I had a picture of my friend’s wedding where they did ties you can tell who tied them. Some knots were large, some small, and a bulky one. 

So I guess pre-tied does give them a nice clean matching look.

We are using them. FH loved that they offered grey tuxes and they had a deal where he could keep the tux/get a free suit. He is wearing the grey CK tux with white shirt, vest, and white and silver tie.

I used Mens Wearhouse due to the fact that it was the only tux rental shop in a 20 minute radius from our wedding venue. I reviewed my less than positive experience on my blog pre-wedding and our experience only went downhill from there.

My husband is a shorter guy and wanted to make sure the tux looked good on him before investing a couple hundred dollars into renting them for all our guys. The only problem is Men’s Wearhouse does not carry their tux jackets in the store for customer’s to try on and they will not order one for you to try on. WTF, Men’s Wearhouse? Seriously would you buy a wedding dress without trying it on? No. We were able to track down one store that had a few samples to try on. It was 2 hours away but hubs was worried so we made the trek. It was a good thing we did b/c it didn’t look good. Of course they didn’t have his exact size, couldn’t get one, couldn’t guarantee anything, blah, blah, blah. We picked one that seemed to work and moved on.

The day before our wedding I took his 13 year old brother to Men’s Wearhouse to try on the tux… it was HUGE! It looked like he was playing dress up. After thirty minutes of fighting with the sales person who basically blamed it on my hub’s little brother ie. he’s too big to fit in kids clothes and too small to fit in adult clothes we finally got it altered enough to work.

IMO they are a huge disappointment. I would not recommend them if anyone in your bridal party is not a “traditional” size (ie. if anyone is short, tall, wide, adolescent, etc.) My husband really wanted to wear a tux but I think the males attire at our wedding was one of our biggest regrets. If I had it to do over we would invest in quality suits. Although that would have been pricier and taken more time, avoiding Men’s Wearhouse would be worth every minute and every dime.

I also feel I can attribute my experience to the company as a whole because the incidences occured at three different Men’s Wearhouses over three seperate states (one in KS- where we live, one in MS- where we drove to try on, and one in Va- where we were married).

Poor little brother. The jacket comes down to his knees.

We’ll probably use Men’s Warehouse because they offer the free grooms tux and then the option of a free ring bearer tux (for my son) or a free suit for the groom to keep.

@bells:  We just rented 6 Groomsmen tuxs and my FI’s tux through there.  I know his rental was free….but did you mention that the ring bearer ALSO gets a free rental?
