Hey styleforum --
Working on a new project I wanted to get some feedback on...
Got married last year and was appalled at the tux rental options. Options were either Mens Wearhouse or a local shop. Both had the same inventory (old baggy tuxes, made from super 90s wool). Because I didn't want the groomsmen in my wedding to spend a fortune we used a local shop and it didn't fare well..
As a result, I've been thinking with some tech friends (i've been in the startup/tech scene for a while) about offering a new solution.
That would be going direct to the source (I have many manufacturing contacts) and designing a fitted Super 150s wool tux to be rented for less than $100 from an online brand. It would be equivalent of a nice designer tux/suit. On the tech side we've designed an algorithm that fits people well based on a few measurements and body-type questions.
Is this something people would use? I myself would (anything to avoid mens wearhouse) - but I wanted to get others feedback/suggestions. Thanks!
