In that pic, it looks like a suit, granted can’t see his shoes which is usually a give away of a tux.

My guys wore suits. Personally, I don’t see the need to have your Groomsmen rent tuxs (esp when its a black tux) b/c black suits look just as good, IMO.

I don’t know about Mens Warehouse, but I do know that typically you can rent suits from the same places that rent tuxs.

Thats def a suit. My guys will (mostly) be in Air Force mess dress , its equivalent to a tux. The wedding is black-tie

My Fiance is wearing a suit, and he is really looking forward to getting a nicely tailored suit that he can wear for various occasions. Our wedding is semi-formal. I’m sure you can rent them, but a good suit is a great investment!

We will just have everyone wear their own suits; no need to go into extra expense if it’s not needed.  Plus Fiance was in his cousin’s wedding last year and Men’s Warehouse was such a pain to deal with that it turned me off (it might just be our area though)

@betsyschulz:  They never had his suit ready at the correct store for pick up and we had to harass the hell out of them to have it ready on time.  They had the suit and measurements wrong for his little cousin ad said they would do a rush process and we could come back on Saturday to pick it up…the wedding was on Friday!!.  After we got extra stank with them we were able to pick it up right before the wedding.  In general they are a pain because they know they have a monopoly on this tux renting business.
