Update Coming Soon for 2017 - This has not been updated in a while. Some information may be outdated as of January 2017. For instance, our prices have gone up since then. Still, we maintain that we offer the most affordable online tuxedo rental products and services in the business.
We created our online rental service to offer the best prices and best value to our customers. To see how we’re keeping up with that goal, we researched the top services in our industry. Below is a breakdown of what we found, including our sources so you can see for yourself.

|National Tuxedo Rentals||$109 - 60 Styles||$119 - 20 Styles||$139 - 15 Styles||$15|

The Best Prices for Online Tuxedo Rental: NationalTuxedoRentals.com
In every price range, National Tuxedo Rentals offers the lowest prices, whether or not you include the cost of a shoe upgrade. Tux ship comes in close on pricing, but it’s not a match – and their tuxedo selection only offers about half the number of styles that we do. In all other cases, our prices beat the competition quite significantly.

Analysis: Our shipping prices are not the absolute best, but they are fair. We offer free return shipping on all rental orders, and we calculate our shipping prices based on the weight and destination of your shipment. We feel that charging a fair price for shipping allows us to keep the costs of our products low, and our delivery policy of getting your tux to you 7-10 days before your event is best in class.

TuxShip.comWe used several pages on TuxShip.com, but it appears that their web server is configured in a way that prevents us linking you directly to those pages. We can copy and paste the URL's here, but it seems they will only work from our computer - as they are tied to a session. Don't quote us on the exact technology they use, but all we know is that links we copy from their site do not work on any other computer than the one that was used to get the links.
