Great news for people who don’t like looking like shit at weddings!
The Black Tux has laid down some shallow roots in Little Italy, and they’re ready to outfit you in a way that increases the likelihood of drawing the attention of your favored bridesmaid or groomsman. It was heretofore online-only, but they’ll be at Apolis Community Centre through the end of the year.
This is something that really should have existed a long time ago. A good formalwear-rental service. One with actual handsome tuxes and shoes and accessories that actually fit you instead of making you feel you’ve gone insane when the “tailor” you’ve been sent to looks at you as you drown in a sea of polyester and square-toe patent-leather shoes and says, “Fits perfectly.” Novel, right?
Anyway, these guys will measure you lovingly and properly and guide you through a series of habiliments for your big day, or one chosen for you by someone involving you in their big day. And again, don’t worry, it’s going to look good and fit you according to your preference.
They’ve got their typical timeless navy shawl collars and black peak collars here for you, but they’ve also expanded into some more out-there stuff, for if you’re just a nonparticipating guest and you really want to be able to find yourself in all the wedding photos. Witness: the tartan plaid and the jacket that would absolutely work on and possibly was on Jack Nicholson’s Joker (in the slideshow).
Once your measurements are entered, you place your order or go home and jump on their site to do it. All that’s left after that is to wait for that magical day.
… The day two weeks before the wedding when it’s delivered.
