How are you addressing COVID-19 (coronavirus)?

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we send our gratitude to those working to minimize the human impact. We understand how much planning goes into every event, and we're here to offer support in these uncertain times.

What if my event is canceled or postponed due to COVID-19?

If you have a rental order with us, we've got your back.

Postponement: If your event is being rescheduled, we can place a hold on your order(s) and keep all your event details, reserved styles and sizes in our system. Let us know here, and we’ll make the update to your event.

Cancellation: For cancellations made 45 days or more before your event, we can provide a full refund to your original form of payment. Any cancellation made less than 45 days before your event will result in a refund through an account credit to your The Black Tux account. Follow the steps to cancel your order here.

For purchases, see our Retail Return Policy for more information.

Sending Back Your Rental: If you have a rental order that needs to be returned, and you're unable to visit a UPS location due to the restrictions of COVID-19, you can also schedule a pickup with UPS here to return your items safely.

How can I plan my event and find my sizes?

We were born online, so we’re here for you from the safety and comfort of your home. If you’re just starting to plan your event, you can preview our garments, coordinate colors, and get measured to find your sizes at one of our showroom locations nationwide. Schedule an appointment here.

Our cleaning processes

While scientific information specific to COVID-19 is still developing, our high-temperature dry cleaning and steaming processes are designed to kill all cold and flu viruses, and we have no reason to believe these would be ineffective against COVID-19.

In addition, reusable garment bags and all accessories are disinfected after every use. We do not reuse packaging materials.

Continued planning and protection

The health of our customers and employees continues to be our top priority. We closely monitor the data and recommendations from the CDC and WHO, and update our practices as needed with your safety in mind.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we have adjusted our policies to ensure our fulfillment and showroom teams have the support they need. You can learn more about the new policies we have implemented to ensure a safe showroom environment here.

We hope you stay healthy, and we look forward to continuing to serve you in your most important moments.

Please note: We’re currently seeing an unprecedented return of demand as things begin to open back up, and some customers have experienced longer than usual hold times by phone. We’re working to reduce hold times, and we apologize if there’s any delay in reaching us during this time.
