Renting a tuxedo is like taking your date to McDonalds, you just don’t do it. And do you really want your boys in the same pants that another guy has had his boys in? Didn’t think so. Tuxedos are the pinnacle of sartorial expression and as such deserve your respect. Whether you’re wearing one to a black-tie gala or your own wedding, investing in one isn’t just the right thing to do it’s the only thing to do.
Here are some great off-the rack options to consider when purchasing your next or first tuxedo. If off the rack isn’t right for you, there is always our incredible made-to-measure program. Either way, choice is plenty and prices varied.

Van Gils Baran Solid Peak Lapel Tuxedo: $895

Ah, the mysteries of formal wear, to wear a tux or to not wear a tux, that is the question? Before we endeavour to answer that we have to ask a more pertinent question, what is the event? The key to dressing successfully for any formal event is to identify the occasion, are you attending a high-profile charity gala, TIFF movie premiere, MMVA’s…? Each event comes with it’s own set of rules outlining what is acceptable and what isn’t and knowing those rules is key. Clearly the flexibility in what you’d wear to the MMVA’s is not the same as a black-tie charity dinner where your company has bought a $20,000 table. As such we’ve put together a modern style guide offering everything from a classic shawl-collar tuxedos to dinner jacket combos to help guide you on your style journey. These looks are guaranteed to keep you up to code not matter the formality of your event and remember, “you can never be too overdressed or overeducated” of any occasion.
