Top Ten Reasons Not to Rent a Tuxedo: An Infographic

Whenever you stay in a hotel room, it’s expected that you should have suspicions over the use of that space before you arrived, as well as the efforts to maintain its cleanliness. Why should cautious thoughts regarding the rental of a tuxedo be any different? Every time you rent a tux, you’re literally stepping into the garments that someone else gave a test run, or maybe even several others. Yet, rarely is the question made as to the possibility of abuse. There’s no telling how much damage went into your formal wear the week or even the night before. At events like weddings, people are motivated to drink for the sake of celebration, which often leads to reckless behavior and minor accidents. But unlike a used car, there’s no report available for the accident history on a tuxedo. At a moment when it’s necessary to look your best, you can’t afford stains, loose stitching, or rips resurfacing. You should never allow yourself to be put into such a position.

The solution for being caught in some rental shops’ ill-treated men’s formal attire is buying one for yourself. Purchasing a tuxedo is no more expensive than renting one, and in some instances you could wind up saving yourself money. Avoid the expensive and uncomfortable hassle of wearing someone else’s tuxedo by have one tailored just for you instead, and check out the infographic below!

American Formal Wear On the 57th Presidential Inauguration

President Obama sworn in to his 2nd term in office - in style, of course.

On January 21, 2013, the 57th Inaugural Ceremonies took off in a grand style. Charles E. Schumer, the current Chairman of the Joint Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies for President Barack H. Obama’s 2nd inauguration, served as the master of ceremonies and gave a tremulously powerful opening speech during the Call to Order and Welcome Remarks.

The Joker's make-up might have needed a little touch up but his choice of formal wear was certainly compelling.

In my previous article, I discussed some of our favorite well-dressed superheroes. I’m not referring to their colorful tights or armor of course, but to their alter egos’ outfits of choice. Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, and Clark Kent all have a highly enviable sense of style. From their crisp suits to their choices in ties, these men know how to dress.  However, they are not the only ones.
