Most default to renting, but is that really the smartest choice in the long run? If you plan on attending more than a couple of formals in your high school and college years, it may be smarter to buy!
- Long-term Value: Wear it more than twice and it’s paid for itself!
- Ready to go: Save yourself the hassle spent reserving, picking up and returning.
- Tailored to Fit: Having your own tux means you can have it perfectly fitted to your body.
- Up-front Expense: A tuxedo is an investment of at least a few hundred dollars.
- Fewer Options: If your tux doesn’t match the style of your date’s dress, you may still have to rent.
- Growing Room: If you’re not finished growing, you run the risk of not being able to wear it by your next formal.
