In the closet amidst the t-shirts, jeans, slacks, and button-up shirts, a tuxedo should gracefully hang, awaiting any opportunity to help you turn on your swag and impress even the most sophisticated people that you know. Why is it so important that at least one tuxedo hang in your closet, especially considering that rentals are available? Check out these five reasons every man should own a tuxedo and enjoy the thrill that comes when choosing a new tux.

1- It’s Cheaper to Buy

Bargain tuxedo rentals cost about $70, while average costs to rent a tux are about $90. If you need a tux only three or four times per year, you’ve already paid more to rent than you’d spend to purchase a tuxedo. Why pay more to rent a tux when you can buy one that is tailor-made to your needs and spend less money in the process?

2- Dress the Part

Many of life’s events require you to dress for the occasion. A pair of jeans and a t-shirt simply will not suffice for such events. When you need to dress the part, whether you’ve been invited to an all-black affair, want to attend Sunday services, or even a business meeting, owning a tuxedo makes doing so easy.

3- Sharp-Dressed Man

ZZ Top once said, ‘every girl’s crazy ‘bout a sharp-dressed man.’ The lyrics to this hit song were written in the 1970s, but the words still ring true today. Women love to see a man who looks nice and knows how to dress. When you want to make an impression on classy women of a higher standard, it is important to hit the town as a sharp-dressed man in your tuxedo.

4- Look Your Best

Everyone is judging you, whether or not you like it or want them to judge you. It is only expected that you’ll look your best so those with an opinion have only great things to say. Showing up at an event in a rented tux certainly starts the conversation, but it usually doesn’t reveal words that you’re hoping to hear. Rented tuxes look cheap, they don’t fit well, and are oftentimes worn-out and look old. Purchase a tux and gain reassurance that you look your best and that those with something to say will speak highly of your style.


That’s right. You only live once, so you might as well make this life the best one possible. When you own a tux, you are ready for whatever life throws your way. You can instantly transform from bad boy to charmer and alleviate the worry of being the laughing stock of the event wearing a rented tuxedo. Plus, it feels good boasting to your friends that you own a tux.
