Darling Husband is a bigger guy (generally like a 3x) and we had to go through a privately owned tux shop. We tried MW but they didn’t have his size in the color we wanted (chocolate brown). I would suggest going the private route. Your experience will be much more personal and they’ll work with you to get exactly what you want. Most reputable places have relationships with the factories where they order their rentals from so they’ll be willing to help you much more than somewhere like MW. We actually had to special order a full back vest for Darling Husband since their biggest size didn’t fit him. He HATES the vests that just clip in the back and refused to have one of those so we went the custom route. We were told that our best shot at getting the vest was to order it in ivory which wasn’t an issue for us since that’s what we wanted anyway.

I would call around to privately owned tux shops and explain your situation. In my experience, they really will try to help you in any way they can. Good luck!
