Tuxedo rentals are one of the biggest clothing scams going: A weekend rental generally costs $100 or more -- about as much as you'd pay to buy a basic model
. Admittedly, if you purchase, you aren't going to get whole lot for that price -- your tux will be polyester or rayon, not wool, and won't be a brand name. Then again, since you own it, you can get it tailored to fit perfectly. And if you're going to need it a few times in the next few years, even a higher-end tux can quickly pay for itself. Best of all, it won't smell like the last occupant -- and that's
a wedding gift that's truly priceless.
