For our wedding we used Black Tie for all the tuxedo rentals. Prior to ordering, every man was measured and recorded, however, when they arrived to pick up the tuxes for the wedding, nothing was the right size! My dad couldn't even fit his arm in his tiny shirt. My brother had no shoes or a shirt available in his size! My cousin's suit was RIPPED! The shoes for my dad looked like they had gone through a cheese grater! There were a TON of issues when the guys picked up, BUT the staff at Black Tie responded quickly and accommodated the issues. My dad eventually ended up with a new pair of shoes, my brother's shirt and shoes came in from the downtown location, and they of course replaced my cousins tux with a different one. In the end, the guys looked GREAT! But BEWARE, check EVERY PIECE of your tux before leaving just to be sure you have quality attire!!!

The invitations worked out great. We had a short list from the websites of Birchcraft and Carlsons. Only draw back was, that nothing was sorted and it took a while to find the cards in all those huge folders. Some of them we did not get to see at all. But we ended up with great invitations and a great value.
The staff was very patient when we changed colors back and forth and arranged for the European guest to be measured only 5 days before the wedding and still have a well fitted tuxedo for the wedding. After all the measuring 1 person's pants and sleeves were about 3 inches long and the alterations took were long while we were just sitting there running late for rehearsal. But all worked out at the end.

The guys at black tie are great because of the low prices and there service quality. The workers are nice and friendly and know what looks good and what does not. I reccomend this company to people who want all of these best qualitys of a good looking fitted tux.

Do not use Black Tie Formal Wear for your tuxes. The service was awful-our friends and family were treated horribly by the people working there. They acted as if our party was inconveniencing them. We also received the wrong attire for the wedding. All the groomsmen got the wrong color tie. Then, our ring bearers (4 of them) all got different colored vests. Luckily, we figured this out before the wedding, but when we asked them to get us the right one, they said they didn't have it and we'd have to deal with something else. Our experience was just horrible with Black Tie.

We visited Black Tie and were impressed by the service off the bat. We heard of so many issues with Men's Warehouse that we just wanted to go a different route. I originally met them at a bridal show and booked an appointment to utilize a discount from the show. I believe it was a free tux for every 6 or something along those lines. H chose the most expensive tuxes-a new Calvin Klein design and the price was still only about $130ish I believe. There were no mistakes with orders and everyone looked fab!

Black Tie was a very good value for the money we spent. They took the time to alter, change and make sure that all nine of our tuxedos were 100%. As with all rental clothes there were some scratches on the shoes and a couple loose threads. Nothing that couldn't be buffed or snipped off. Maureen is the most patient person to deal with. My bride was on a wild goose chase to find the matching color dress for the vests. Maureen helped her every step of the way. We ordered our invitations with Maureen as well and she had lots of advice on the proper etiquette and what was needed and what wasn't. We highly recommend them for Tuxedos and Invitations.

Black Tie was very accomodating to our out of town guests. My husband does not have an average upper body and they were willing to alter the jacket in order for him to look his best; other places were not willing to do this. They are reasonably priced and offer good products. We got 11 tuxes and everyone's fit perfectly. The only thing I would watch out for is that some people's cuff links were missing. This wasn't that big of a deal because other guys got extra so it worked out in the end however I would count them before you leave the store.

We got our tuxes from here because the invitations were 50% if you bought your tuxes from them. We had to go several times to get our invitations. I felt rushed the first couple times we went there to look at invites. They were not very helpful until you actually picked out your invites. Once we picked out invites the lady, Maureen was very helpful and patience. The invitations came is REALLY fast which was nice considering we had to redo our invites becaue my original banquet hall burnt down. There are only certain days and times you could make appts to order invitations. They were not very convenient. As far as the tuxes go, they looked very nice on the guys. I guess some the tuxes were the wrong sizes when they guys picked them up. They did fix them the best they good but gave the guys some grief about it. Overall it was very reasonably priced and worth the money.

I was disappointed that Black tie had messed up on our order almost 5 times (and 3 people were missing things or wrong sizes till the day before the wedding)... They confused members of the bridal party (almost gave my father the same tux as the groomsmen....) and put my mothers boyfriend as my father in the father of the bride tux twice. FINALLY getting it fixed and worked out... everything looked beautiful when finished. Not bad over all just keep an eye on names, color and sizes... pick up the tuxes 2 days before the wedding and make sure it all fits before going home!!!!

Apparently you have to make an appointment to select your invitations and there was never anyone to really help us. We ordered the invitations for the wedding in a rush and I made an error on the addresses - they were able to fix the reception hall card and only a small additional charge, but were not able to do the same with the rest of the invitation. So I used them as is....with the wrong addy of the church....but thankfully noone noticed and due to my explicit directions...everyone got there fine....well almost everyone (apparently my brother-in-law who was driving my mother who had the programs forgot to take the direction card with and so they got lost and ran late arriving just seconds before the ceremony had to start). However the paper quality and design were great. I just wish they offered a bit more variety in the color choices. They only had a select few invitations that I considered beautiful...some were way out of our price range...and this one was on the expensive side too. We also ordered our shower invites through them and those were georgous!
