There are places that rent suits but their selection is generally pretty limited.  What about having them all wear their own black suits?  Then those who have one don’t have to buy and those who don’t can find one at a price point they are comfortable.  Put them in the same shirts and ties and you will barely be able to tell that they aren’t in the same suits.  🙂

Places rent suits but the two places we looked at had limited selections.  What don’t you like with a tux? I really don’t like cummerbuns and bowties so we opted for vests and long ties.

Alot of places rent suits, Mens Warehouse is one of them.  You might do some checking around before you rent them.  I was able to buy our Groomsmen really nice suits at Burrlington Coat Factory for less than the rental was going to cost.  They all got exactly the same suit and they got to keep them.  And there are a ton of sales going on right now if you can coordinate getting them out there shopping.  I was actually able to get mine all there on one day and they really loved that they got to keep them.

Jos A Bank has a sale on right now- buy one suit get two free. Other bees have posted about similar sales by Mens Wearhouse.

http://www.overstock.com also has great deals on suits.

If they get a good deal, a suit can cost not much more than renting a tux and they get to keep it.

We are going with suits! I also much prefer suits to tuxes.  We’re renting them from Moores with no problems!

We are also going with suits.  Not sure where you are but rentals by us where costing $140 per tuxedo.  Renting suits is not available.  Thanks to the Bee I found makeyourownjeans.com where you can order custom suits for $110.00 including shipping.  Fiance still wants to try buying them somewhere and there are great deals at stores right now but how can you beat a custom fitted suit?! Plus you can pick out the fabric color.  We are charging everyone $150 and will buy a tie, a shirt and socks alond with the suit.  The guys will provide their own shoes.  Win win I think!

Here is the link that inspired me to buy suits – http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/suit-vs-tux

Good luck!
