Great tux rentalReviewed on 7/24/2012 Cristina H
We had gone to Men's Wearhouse thinking it would be the most convenient, since it's a chain, and that the prices would be best. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that its prices are not only on par with other tux rentals in the city (including Baldwin), but that you literally have to pick your tuxes out from a catalog—they don't have floor samples in store, so you won't see how the tux will fit until you pick them up a few days before the event. Baldwin was the complete opposite; we were able to touch and try on everything they had to offer and our consultant was beyond helpful, letting us try every permutation (vest, suspenders, different colored ties) with our selected style until we were totally satisfied with the overall look. All of our groomsmen looked great on the day of the wedding—the rentals fit well and were well maintained and clean. One of the shirts they delivered was wrong (they gave us a pleated rather than plain dress shirt), but this was partially the groomsman's fault for not checking when he picked everything up. We had an otherwise flawless experience.
Great ServiceReviewed on 4/10/2012 Katia S
Our groomsmen tuxes looked fantastic. The service we got when we went to choose our tuxes was outstanding, and they even picked up the tuxes from our hotel on Monday after the wedding.

Great tuxesReviewed on 9/13/2013 Dory L
Our five groomsman rented tuxes here for our black tie wedding. It was easy and convenient -- they got the tux, cufflinks, shirt, shoes and bow ties for $220. Good value for New York City. Not a huge selection for "modern" tuxes but the guys looked great. Some guys complained that the shoes hurt.
Great vendorReviewed on 12/21/2011 Lauren C
Shopped around at several rental tuxedo retailers and this was the only store that offered anything remotely modern looking. The fit was perfect and the service and value are outstanding. Free delivery/pick-up in Manhattan and they can do same day complimentary alterations the day before the wedding - perfect if you have bridal parties traveling from out of town. I can't think of anything they could do better or differently - great vendor.
Professional, Great looking TuxesReviewed on 8/18/2011 Melissa T
Baldwin provided excellent looking tuxes and professional service. They even came to pick up the tuxes from our hotel concierge after the wedding.
Easy and QualityReviewed on 8/10/2010 Matt D
I loved working with Baldwin Formal for tuxes for the groom and groomsmen. Their selection was top notch, the tuxes were in great condition, and they looked tailored in the wedding photos. They were quick to have a professional working with you the moment you walked through the door (unlike many chain tux rental services) and there was never a moment of doubt that they would fulfill their promise to make the men look good. On top of all that, they had some of the best pricing I could find for high end rentals.
Nothing spectacular, but gets the job doneReviewed on 8/09/2010 Kristin M
My husband and the groomsmen rented their tuxes from Baldwin Formals. The tuxes were nice enough (although one was delivered with some holes in it but they quickly sent a replacement) and they have a decent central ordering system. However, as with most things in NYC, it's rather overpriced.
