@smactley: We were told at a wedding expo that there aren’t any charcoal tuxes- only charcoal suits that you can buy. There are light gray ones but none that are darker. My fiance was so upset as that was the one thing he wanted.

@ksarena:  I call shenanigans on that.  Sure, they’re harder to find but they DEFINITELY exist.

Thanks Ladies! We were so disappointed when the tux guy told us absolutely not! I’ll have to tell my fiance

Perry Ellis just released a new dark charcoal tuxedo — we are renting ours from Friar Tux in Los Angeles, which is part of the Savvi network of Tuxedo shops.  I know that Jos. A Bank and other big chains typically have the normal grey or the light grey — but the smaller stores get the good stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

@smactley: It probably is!  Unfortunately we’re the week after you or else I’d show you pics of me in it ๐Ÿ™‚   I know that the tux is so new that it isn’t even listed on ANY of the savvi websites yet — and they are supposedly the only chain that has the darker one (we REALLY shopped around!).

Hello ladies Laughing.. I’m just a best man in my friends wedding. We went looking for gray/grey tuxedos for his big day. But we struck out. So I started searching the web. I seen all the different styles, but no where to rent them. Then I stumbled upon this site. After reading your posts and checking out links. I found a site that can offer all the various styles of charcoal tuxes. Joseph Abbound, Jean Yves, and that awesome Perry Ellis evening grey stripe ‘Madison’ tuxedo. Look for a location near you, and see if they order from the mytuxedocatalog site. Hope this helps.
