Simply put – absolutely, and here’s why:
No matter the time of year, it’s always tuxedo season. In the spring and summer months, it is likely that your mailbox will start to overflow with save the date and wedding invitations. But don’t think tuxedos are only for the nuptial celebrations. In the winter months, you may need a tuxedo at the opera, a formal dinner reception or a gala. Despite the celebratory occasion, there’s one little annoyance that accompanies these formal affairs – the rental tux.
A tuxedo is fashion’s quintessential symbol of class and power and by renting a tux; you run the risk of compromising that statement. Think about it, do you really want to wear the same outfit that a kid wore to prom the night before? Remember your prom, and how you treated your tuxedo? Ick.
Whether you wear a tuxedo regularly or only on occasion, it is more cost effective to invest in a tux rather than rent one. Renting requires you to waste both time and expense for something that doesn’t fit and you don’t get to keep. The advantage of having a tuxedo at your disposal is that you will be prepared for any of those unexpected black tie events.
