The Black Tux was launched with one simple idea: to offer an elevated tuxedo rental experience focused on quality, convenience, and most of all, style.
In 2011, Andrew and Jenna got engaged. While the pair worked together to plan the perfect wedding, both groom and bride were disappointed by the limited offering of outdated, low-quality options at the local tux shops and the national chains. Andrew was so frustrated that he had to ask his groomsmen, including his friend Patrick, to pay upwards of $200 to be burdened by the inconvenience of tuxedo rental, an experience that ended with Andrew and his closest friends spending a memorable day dressed like clowns.
Spurred on by the experience, after the wedding Andrew and Patrick decided to start a new kind of tuxedo rental company—one that values refined style and fantastic customer service, and offers customers a well-curated selection of modern formalwear.
