Best Tuxedo Rental
Baldwin Formals
1156 Avenue of the Americas
212-245-8190 and 212-867-4420

An excellent tuxedo-rental shop should be like your average B-movie actress: fast and well-equipped but not too expensive. And at Baldwin Formals, they literally deliver the goods (at no extra charge). Which is why concierges from the Tribeca Grand to the Plaza recommend the 50-year-old shop, and why it also outfits the talent for the Emmy, Grammy, and Tony awards. Its three on-site tailors have shortened sleeves for John Goodman and lengthened trousers for El Duque, and the second-floor walk-up has in-stock tuxedos sized for both Macaulay Culkin and Brett "the Hitman" Hart. From buttons to bow ties, the folks at Baldwin (no relation to those B-movie actors) send you on the road from rogue to respectable in 30 minutes, starting at $100.
