Celebrate Smarter: The Combatant Gentleman Tuxedo Giveaway



This post is brought to you by Combatant Gentlemen. Why rent when you can own? #HolidaySmarter

With New Year’s approaching — as well as the swanky parties that come with it — gentlemen the world over are once again thinking about the tuxedo dilemma: to rent or to own? The problem often comes down to price vs. use. “If I buy a tux, will it get used enough to justify the cost?”

It’s a question that actually doesn’t have a very complicated answer: in most cases, it does in fact pay to own a tuxedo – if you buy one at the right price. The average cost to rent a tux is about $200; if you’re renting a luxury brand, it’s even more than that. Through Combatant Gentleman – aka Combat Gent – you can buy your very own tuxedo for that very same price. So even if you wear it just twice, you’ll have saved money over renting!

Assuming you stay mostly the same size, and with good care, your tuxedo can last decades. Between black-tie weddings, fancy fundraisers, New Year’s Eve gatherings, and more, you can be sure that you’ll don your tux enough that buying simply makes the most sense.

Owning also allows you to say yes to any last-minute formal event invites. Renting a tuxedo takes time – you need to get measured, go in for fittings, etc. It’s quite the hullabaloo. The ease of simply pulling your get-up out of the closet saves you both time and stress.

So once you’ve decided that, how do you go about choosing a tux and all that comes with it? It really comes down to personal style and how/where it will be used. For a more modern style, a subtle texture, like herringbone, makes a nice addition to a tuxedo shirt. You’ll also want a silk, all-black necktie, or, you can rock a bowtie depending on your mood. For the retro-inspired gentleman, the shawl-collar tuxedo might just be the way to go. And if you’re out on the town on a chilly evening, a formal overcoat is a must-have.

Of course, seeing as how every man is different when it comes to personal style, we’ve decided to give one tuxedo away from Combatant Gentleman and let you choose for yourself exactly what you want. Take a look at the tuxedo selection from Combatant Gent, follow @combatgent on Instagram, and in the form below, tell us which one you’d go with if you were to win. We’ll randomly choose one lucky guy, who will then look dapper as heck this New Years Eve and for years to come.

Even if you don’t win, you’ll still save. Combat Gent is offering 15% off to AoM readers when you use the code “aomholiday” at checkout. Offer is valid through 1/2/16.
