Default Tuxedo rental in Fort Lauderdale--quickly

If anyone can help--QUICKLY, need help with names of places to rent a tux for DH for cruise next week on 10/27. I have searched the boards and various places that came up online but I know that there are many of them and I can only find one or two. Do not want to rent from the ship, too expensive. Can someone give me some names, I can't believe that he said he will wear a tux, help before he changes his mind!

Thanks.! luv (luvseadays)

Time is not on your side.

I don't think you are going to find a one week rental for less than the cruise line. The cruise line should be $75 to $100 for a one week rental. Most of your local chain outlets such as Gingiss, Knights, etc. are more expensive for that length of time.

Take care,

i totaly agree with Mike. a one-week tux rental from a "regular" tux shop is going to be very expensive, $100.00 at the very least, depnding upon what styles you choose from -not to mention that you will have to find the shop, pick-up the tux, bring it on board and return it to the tux shop after the cruise.
If you book with the cruise line - your tux will be delivered- clean, fresh and pressed to your cabin with TWO shirts, some cruise lines will even clean your tux between wearings (if needed) for no-cost or for very little.
Another option is to rent your tux locally and bring it with you. That way you can see it and try it on before you rent it.
Did i mention that when you rent from the cruise you get 2 fresh clean & pressed shirts? not just one .

Actually I was hoping to find a shop that rents them and delivers to the ship. We used one a few yrs. ago but I have misplaced their name.

Thanks for the replies though, anyone else know of a tux rental company that I might have used that delivered right to the ship?
