Default Tux's on EBAY?

Anyone ever buy a tuxedo from ebay? I see a couple of sellers selling full tux sets (coat, pants,shirt,links) for 99.00 see ebay auction

I assume there from a rental inventory. does anyone have any experience buying from any of these sellers? Were the tux's any good?

I was thinking if they were any good why would you rent on the ship.

Thanks
Charlie

Hi Chas,
Have not bought them through e-bay, but we found a great semi annual warehouse sale at Gingess, selling both used and new. We got the whole outfit, with 2 shirts, couple ties, vest, shoes for $300, so somthing else to check out. You are right though, much better just buying a tux than renting, just a few wears will cover the cost of a few rentals. If you plan on more cruising, its the thing to do.

Shopping on Ebay for a tux is great. Mine....shows NO wear, seems new...tho it might not be the absolute 'latest' in the tux world, will do wonderfully on board. I think it was $50.00, plus shipping. It had coat, pants vest, tie....had to buy a shirt and studs and shoes. Tis an 'After Six' tux....probly would have been 400-500 new. I am delighted.

As for Ebay, just be prudent...read feedback for each seller.

We haven't bought a tux on eBay, yet, but I have bought 2 evening gowns and am thrilled with them. We looked at the different sellers and found some that owned formal wear shops and sold their overstock on eBay or sold their discontinued floor models. I ended up with 2 (new with tags on) dresses for about $40 each (including shipping) when each dress retailed for over $200.

Check out the seller info. Make sure the feedback is good and then go for what you think is a good price.

We only go on a cruise every couple of years . Even though it is $85.00 to rent a tux and have it delivered to your room. It is so worth it as it is pressed and comes with 2 shirts and you don't have to pack it!!!! Also people do change sizes and then you will have a tux that doesn't fit. But good luck!!

Yes we have and we love it. Even ordered shoes too. Hubby now has quite an evening wear selection at about 1/4 the price.

When you rent a tux on board (Norway), do you pay a onetime fee for the whole cruise? Or is the fee per night you want it?

CHristy,
You pay for the tux for the entire week, usually comes with 2 shirts, so you're set for both "formal" nights.
