The Holiday Collection is High-End Tuxedos with Minimal Commitment

The Holiday Collection, The Black Tux
If you’re like us, you’re gearing up for a slew of holiday parties and New Year’s Eve celebrations. The invitations have started coming in, but you’ve taken a look through your closet and realized that last year’s suit jacket just won’t do for the more formal events.


This season, suit rental disrupter The Black Tux is here to help with the launch of The Holiday Collection. It’s eight different suits ranging from the traditional black tuxedo to a loud split tartan suit.

“We wanted to offer something you weren’t going to find anywhere else,” Co-Founder Patrick Coyne says. “So you can go to that gala, go to that NYE celebration, but not have to fully invest in a suit.”


In the last few years, the Los Angeles-based company has turned the rental game upside down with made-to-measure, Italian fabric suits all manufactured out of a 60,000 sq. ft. warehouse in the suburb of Gardena. The fabrics come out of the same Italian mill that produces for high-end brands like Burberry and Ralph Lauren.

The company doesn’t share user numbers, but they’ve solidified that they’re the third biggest suit renter in the country behind giants like Men’s Wearhouse. And they’re catching up quick.

The Holiday Collection

It’s mostly due to a high-level user experience where the company’s tailor’s ask for your specific dimensions and sizes, then builds a suit to fit just right. They send it two weeks in advance of when you need it to allow for any adjustments if things don’t quite line up.

“Because we own the entire process, we can even do emergency tailoring up to 24 hours before,” Coyne says. “It goes back to that overall experience that we want to give our customers.”


The Holiday Collection offers the same set of goods as their traditional models do. You get the jacket, pants, shirt, shoes and neckwear. Regardless of where your holiday celebrations take you, there’s a color and style to match. The rose and chambray cuts are set for warmer climates, while the darker blacks and blues are great for cosmopolitan settings.

Overall, the Collection offers some great options all under $150. It’s the perfect opportunity to try before you invest in a pricey suit.

“When you look and feel great, it creates positive experiences,“ Coyne says. “We want you to feel competent and comfortable in whom you are.

Whether you watch movies, listen to music, or read books, you have likely heard that Rolex watches are the pinnacle of stylish luxury in men's watches. Gorden Gecko sported a Rolex when he became the picture of wealth on Wall Street. Elvis Presley got one of only 100 Rolex King Midas watches for selling out the Houston Astrodome for six straight days. The brand has always been the gold standard in men's luxury.

However, that may not be the case any longer, as the brand seems to be losing its grip on the watch pyramid of superiority.

Dior is one of the biggest names in all the fashion world. While Christian Dior was initially offered the role of designing for Phillipe et Gaston in Paris in 1946, he refused to design for someone else and instead decided to start a brand under his own name. That tenacity and belief in himself paid off for him as his brand became one of the most recognizable in the entire fashion world. Included in those recognizable products is the Dior bag.

On the other side of fashion is function. Mystery Ranch has led the way in providing backpacks for the men on the front lines of the battlefield, forest fires, or exploration. The company has had one focus since its inception: minimize the burden on your back so you can retain more power, more strength, and of course, more stamina. Whether a soldier, first responder, or explorer, its packs are designed to be as tough as you are.
