We paid $210/tux for our rentals but it also included the shirt.  $100 each would be nice.

Ours are $148 each, with jacket, pants, shoes, ties, shirts, and cufflinks.  And vest/bow ties are normal with tuxes.  (We’re not doing them due to weather – outdoors in mid-May in Missouri tends to be in the 70s.)  I don’t think you’re getting ripped off.

We were quoted any where from $89 to $160 depending on what tux we picked. Ours comes with the jacket, pantsshirt, vest, tie, shoes, & socks. So I think $100 sounds good and with 3 free, wow even better. I was going to go with classic bow ties but I really didn’t want it too look “prom-ish” so we went with the long tie tux.

I say trust your own gut feeling!! unfortunatly I will not be able to see everyone in the suits until the day of. I love how classic a tux looks especially for a wedding. But in my head I just keep picturing them looking goofy for some reason. For me I think it is if you add color to the classic tux in the vest or tie, to me, it looks prom-ish. So for us, we wanted a bit of color so we went with all black suits and vest and then pale pink ties for the men, groom will have ivory tie and black vest and dads will have a gold tie on black vests. I think it is just personal preference.

I love it and think they look great! Trust your gut :”]] He may not be used to getting dressed up and spiffy

And you also got a great deal! Out here where I live the prices run anywhere from 89.99-250 depending on what you want. But you get three tuxs for free! Awesome. Usually they only give one free if you get 5 people to rent.

Wow those prices are high, we were going to rent for $50 each, but we chose to buy when they went on sale for $150 each at Jos A. Banks.  We had several events this year so it worked out for us.

Judging by the photos, the all white accessories fellow definitely doesn’t look promy. He’s well into the sophisticated, black-tie affair zone. There are those of us picky men, and maybe your fiance feels the same way, who find color-coordinated formalwear to be promy.  So I’d concur that the matching patterened blue tie and blue vest gives a more prom/youthful feel than the elegant, timeless, black-tie feel that the guy on the right has.  But it’s definitely not in crazy prom-ville town because the blue is so subdued.   You would do a bit to bring the sophistication of that tux up by substituting the matching pocket square with something that doesn’t match the blue tie and vest so specifically. Pocket square guidelines usually stress matching the gentleman’s shirt, and not the tie. Really inspired dressers can throw all sorts of pocket squares into any suit and make it work. I don’t know how they do it…

We did ours from Savvi Formalwear, and they were about $140 each, with 2 free.  This included everything they needed.

@Verno Inferno: I completely agree. The groom with the white tie looks very classic to me. But the navy vest, tie, and pocket square looks a little prom-ish too me. But everyone is different. And the only opinion that matters is yours and you Fiance.

I think the guys look great. Your Fiance probably said that because the last time he wore a tux was probably to his prom, so that is the only thing he has to compare it too.
