One of the main stereotypes I hear most about weddings is that men don’t care about them or wish to be a part of the planning process. This includes wedding professionals, as well as the friends and family of the happy couple. Which is why, until recently, the standard selection for menswear, specifically within the rental spectrum, was an ill-fitting suit that suggested the groom’s attire was an afterthought.
The stylists at Generation Tux are out to change that mindset with a new online tux rental store that acts like Rent the Runway and looks like Ryan Gosling. Trust me when I say, these tuxes are not your uncle’s rental suits. The Generation Tux line includes everything from formal tuxes:
To more modern suiting:
Renting a suit or tux from Generation Tux’s suits and tuxedos is just $129, with a complete look including shirt, shoes, vest, and tie coming in at $199. Most of their styles are available in sizes ranging from 3T up to a 66XL. To add a little extra peace of mind, each suit is tailored according to the measurements you give them, however, Generation Tux pants and shirts are designed with hidden flex-fit waistbands/necks just in case you need a little extra room come wedding day.
If only wedding dresses worked like that!
In addition to their modern aesthetic, my favorite Generation Tux feature that makes them stand out from other suit rental stores is that they are all about helping keep your event organized and your rental process streamlined. Here’s how it works:
1. ORGANIZE YOUR EVENT. It takes less than a minute to set up your event. Events can be created for individuals or for groups, such as wedding parties, making it easy to keep all your favorite people organized….including that one procrastinating friend or family member. (You will receive 20% off your entire wedding party when you book using my unique promo code: ALC)
2. CREATE YOUR LOOK. Generation Tux has an amazing virtual studio that lets you mix and match any of their styles in real time on a mannequin, or if you don’t know what you want yet, just choose from one of their 50+ pre-styled looks. The look below is my own creation. Any takers?
3. GET MEASURED. Generation Tux is all about fit. Even though you’re renting online, you’re still guaranteed a suit that’s tailored to your measurements. Not sure you can take your own measurements properly? Generation Tux has a whole resource page dedicated to making sure you get accurate measurements. They even have style concierges available to walk you through the process and on-call tailoring in case adjustments need to be made before the wedding. They’ll send you measuring tape so you won’t have to buy one!
4. RECEIVE AND RETURN. You’ll get your Generation Tux outfit seven days prior to your special event, allowing you plenty of time for adjustments if something isn’t fitting correctly. Then they give you three days after your wedding and free shipping to send it back, so there’s no rushing around trying to find a mailbox before your morning-after festivities begin.
Don’t let Generation Tux‘s “young” history to the market cause concern, they come from a long history of menswear expertise. The Generation Tux founder is none other than George Zimmer. (The gentleman from the Men’s Wearhouse commercials.)
So if you’ve been feeling frustrated at the lack of affordable, stylish, easy suit rental options out in the world right now, then Generation Tux might be the fix you’ve been looking for. Don’t forget to use my unique promo code: ALC to receive 20% off your entire wedding party when you book.
