    We got a few quotes and they were all around $200.

    Yeah, that’s pretty normal. I’m assuming you went with one of the Vera Wang tuxes? I looked at those and said nope to the price. We ended up going through my bridal shop for several reasons: larger selection, better prices, better discount. I believe to rent the entire tux we chose was $150, but we chose to just rent the flat front pants (extra $5), matching vest, and dress shirt for $90. Still steep, but better than $200.

    I suggest seeing if you’ve got a Jim’s retailer near you.

    @BriansBride:  We originally went to MW, but after researching and shopping around, we found they were cheaper to rent at Jos A Bank. (For the record, we considered buying, but one of our GM is almost 7 feet tall and it was nearly impossible to accommodate him). Ours are between $150-$200 and my FI’s is free.

    The Vera tuxes are $200 in our area. The ones we chose were $89 after taxes and what not.

    @BriansBride:  The Canadian version of Men’s Wearhouse (Moores) rents the Black by Vera Wang for $189 and the regualr tux for $149.  You also get a free rental or a $500 voucher with 5 paid orders.

    I’m surprised that they’re more expensive South of the border, that’s not usually the case.

    That sounds pretty much right to me! We went through Men’s Wearhouse and the guys were able to get their tuxes for a bit less, but of course, it depends which line you go with!

    Ours are about $190. We had a $30 or $40 off each rental code for MW.

    @BriansBride:  We got an estimated price of $190ish to rent a pretty standard tux from Jos A Bank (including flat front pants).  We then went to a privately owned tux shop and got a quote for a Ralph Lauren rentail of $185, including flat front pants, the microfiber (non pleated) shirts, shoes, button studs, cufflinks, suspenders, and a tailored fit (read: non baggy!) jacket.  MUCH nicer tux than what was available at Jos. A Bank at a similar price point.  This also included the damage waiver and tax.  They gave us a discount based on the number of rentals AND the location of the wedding (because they do a lot of business with that company)  It may be worthwhile to ask your venue who they recommend, because you may get additional incentives from the shop.
