About The Black Tux

The Black Tux was founded in 2013 by Andrew Blackmon and Patrick Coyne,  longtime friends who, while preparing for Andrew’s wedding in 2011, saw an opportunity  to offer men an alternative to traditional tuxedo and suit rental outlets. After their  experience renting for Andrew’s wedding, they decided to explore different ways to  improve the tuxedo rental process.
