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.

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.
