    Are your guys buying or renting suits/tuxes? That’d likely change my answer.

    @Mrs. Leeds:  IMOP, I would buy the ties (or purchase similiar ties you’re happy with that fit in your budget).  I understand in some sense you’re doing the groomsmen a favor by having them buy their suits (that they can keep and wear again), but they are still forking over a big chunk of change, and that doesn’t mean they’ll for sure wear them again. I feel it’s the same as the bridesmaid “you can wear this dress again!” statement…many times bridesmaids don’t.  I’m sure they are happy they get to keep their outfit (and appreciate your thought of investment), but in the end I think it’s a very nice gesture that you gift the tie as part of your groomsmen gift.

    @Mrs. Leeds:  Have you picked the place that they’re buying/have they purchased yet? We have a chain up here that gave them suits (to keep, not rent), the shirt, and a tie and pocket square (in the color we selected) for $130. If you haven’t yet picked out the suit, I’d shop around. It may solve your problem 🙂 Otherwise, it would be nice to buy the ties, just check around for a cheap/affordable version of the color/style you’d like.

    Sorry, I’m the accidental 1 vote for the second option.  I thought it said “just buy the ties for the groomsmen” which I totally think you should do if they’re buying new suits.
