I'm about to freak the fug out. How much did it cost for your tux rental? My son is going to the prom and I'm in shock at the cost.

If it isn't a Tux where he has to rent a specific style or model but you want a black standard one for example, you can actually buy one cheaper than you can rent one. Hard to believe but it is true. The rental places actually sell used ones but my son who is 13 had 3 formal dances to go to as part of the cotillion group he belongs to. I bought him one on Ebay for 40 bucks. Brand new and it had all the components. It looked as good as the one he wore at his older brother's wedding last year which we had to rent for 120 bucks because it had to match all the others.

Prom kinda snuck up on us. I don't know why I thought we had more time; I had the date wrong.

Anyway, if I had the time, I'd definitely buy instead of renting. Or even buy him a nice suit. I was not expecting to pay $200 for rental. I was expecting more around $120.

I really think it's because there's only 2 places in town to rent from. They can charge whatever they want with 4 high schools renting from them.

I wore a tux to prom, but that was eight years ago, no idea what it cost. I rented one last year for a wedding, but I don't remember what that cost either. :/ It was from Jos. A. Bank though so I'm sure I got ripped off.

And don't feel bad Dpantherman, my buddy asked a girl to prom the day of, and he wore a ill fitting suit with a batman tie. His pants split half way through the night. Great night.
