Every month Paul Morrell Formalwear tracks the rental data for all of the tuxedo styles we offer and determines which 10 coats were the most rented for the previous month. This information is invaluable to businesses and consumers alike because everyone wants to know what’s in style right now. In a constantly changing and evolving environment, having up to date style information like this puts you way ahead of the curb.

For a formal vendor, knowing what’s being sought after gives you a competitive edge in your local market. For a customer looking for just the right outfit, this gives you access to the most up to date style information available, so you can make the best decision for your important day! You can also look at past month’s Top 10 listing to find out which styles come and go, and which styles are mainstays in formal style.
In October we see an interesting trend that indicates that classic is back in style, with the top spot being occupied by a classic black two button notch tuxedo. As the weather turns colder and we gear up for winter, we also gear up for the holiday party season, full of black tie galas and other formal events. The traditional wear for these events is black tie attire, or at least standard black. So, it isn’t surprising that, while black only holds 2 of the top 10 spots, the classic After Six Black ‘Chaplin II’ Tuxedo is in the top position.
Also this month we continue to see fall-friendly brown and always stylish grey tuxedos and suits vying for the top 10 spots, each holding 4 positions, if you count the Jean Yves Tan Rapture Suit in the brown family. This follows a trend whereby Greys and Browns have been going neck and neck for months, each proving to be substantially popular alternatives to more traditional black formal wear.
