We’re not kidding… renting a tuxedo for your upcoming formal affair is a very easy process, easier than you might think! You’re starting at the the right place. Jim’s Formal Wear is the preferred tuxedo source to over 5000 retailers nationwide and the largest supplier of men’s formal wear in the country. What that means to you is there is likely a retailer very close to where you live. We’ll mention more about our Nationwide Network of Retailers later.
O.K., let’s get into the simple steps of renting a tuxedo…
STEP 1: Create Your Tux.
The very first thing you want to do is create your tuxedo. Our website offers a number of methods to do this. You can simply browse tuxedo and accessory styles by visiting our Tuxedo and Accessory pages. When you find a tuxedo or an accessory item you like, you can do something as simple as print the web page and bring it to your nearest Jim’s Retailer. Not sure about that style? You can like or share the page/image on Facebook and Pinterest to solicit your friends’ opinions.
However, for a much more fun way to build a tuxedo, you can use our interactive Tuxedo Builder online application which can be launched from the top of our home page - or – from any number of tuxedo or accessory collection pages. Simply use the app to walk through the process of choosing each component of your tux including your tuxedo coat, pants, shirt, fullback vest, tie and formal shoes. When you come to the end, you can save the tuxedo ensemble to your Fitting Room for future review, start over, and build another style.
If you think you have your tuxedo built the way you want it, the Tuxedo Builder allows you to send the details of your personal tux to your chosen JFW retailer. The advantage will be less time spent in store perusing styles in our catalogs. However, your created tuxedo is not an absolute and you can change your mind at any time along the way!
Are you short of time and want to choose your tux from your mobile device? If you happen to have an iPad or iPhone, you can download The Tuxedo Builder apps and enjoy using them on your favorite Apple device. Learn more about getting them – for FREE – here.

STEP 2: Visit a Store.
Your next step is to locate and visit your nearest Jim’s Formal Wear Retailer. If you have not chosen a tuxedo before you enter their store, not a big deal. These experts are aware of the latest trends and the hottest colors in formal fashion and will help you make choices based on the event you are attending.
Your Jim’s Retailer will ask about your event, its date, and will instruct you when to visit the store to try on your tuxedo for a fitting. We, at Jim’s Formal Wear, and our Retailers want to make sure your tuxedo fits well, flatters your appearance, and makes you feel good wearing it. Before you leave, they will take your measurements. Leave that process up to them; taking your own measurements and having them be accurate is virtually impossible.
With over 5000 retailers nationwide, you’ll find a Jim’s Formal Wear Retailer near you. Visit our Store Locator to see how close your retailer is!
STEP 3: Pickup. Enjoy! Return.
Finally, your tuxedo will arrive at the store and your retailer will notify you. It’s a good idea to try the tuxedo on in-store to make sure it is perfect. And then you’ll be on your way…
All that’s left is for you to enjoy the admiring glances and compliments you receive about your formal look! It’s our job to create the Ultimate Formal Wear Experience for you and together with our Nationwide Network of Retailers, we will.
If you thought renting a tuxedo was easy, it’s even easier having a blast while wearing one!
When your event is over, simply put the tux back on the hanger with all of the accessories and return it to your retailer the next business day after the event.
We have an additional page in our website dedicated to the simple process of tuxedo rental and you’ll find it right here.
We told you it was easy!
