Prom season is quickly approaching the Queen City.  Starting in April, it seems to goes on forever from one school to the next. 

The girls have been shopping for weeks, but the boys? Let’s just say if you have a son, you know, What Will I Wear is not the big question on his list when approaching the big dance.

ONWARD RESERVE in Park Road Shopping Center has a great tux rental program for young men of all ages. Starting at $80 + tax and a $7 damage waiver for the basic tux, your son (or any guy for that matter) can be fully tux-ed out…this price includes pants, basic shirt, nickel plated studs, basic tie and cummerbund. Upgrades are available at additional prices. 

Upgrades include slim fit pants ($7), microfiber shirt ($8), upgraded ties/cummerbunds etc.
Shoe rentals are also available and recommended.


Definitely not just for high school boys, but a great resource if you want to send him over to take care of the whole thing on his own. Onward Reserve is set up to fully outfit him in style.


Here is the process:

It’s best to order at least two weeks in advance. And while it’s a good idea to make an appointment, it’s not required.

  1. Head into Onward Reserve at Park Rd Shopping Center to get fitted
  2. All info is taken and tux rental is paid for
  3. When the tux arrives, come back in and try on before taking home
  4. Return the tux with 5 days of pick up to avoid a late fee

Added incentive ~ Tux rental customers receive a free Onward Reserve tee.
