We call it Better Black Tie


Lapel is a premium suit and tuxedo rental brand. We're different because we've designed and made everything we rent. We pride ourselves on our exceptional fit, quality, style, and customer service.  


Fit is paramount. Making a better fitting rental was the reason we stared Lapel. Our suits and tuxedos are designed slim through the body with a higher armhole. A perfect blend of classic and contemporary. 


Our look is as important as our fit. Lapel offers stylish options like fly front spread collar shirts, velvet slippers, and self-tie bow ties.



You'll get the royal treatment at our Alexandria shop, and we use professional custom tailors at our parter locations to fit and service customers. No guesswork, no self-measuring, no boxes in the mail. We'll take care of everything.

We’re working with LLS, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, to help raise money for blood cancer research.

It’s a cause that is meaningful to us. Less than a year after starting the business, co-founder Graham was diagnosed with leukemia. After chemo, a stem cell transplant, and months in the hospital under the care of some amazing doctors and nurses, he is in remission and doing awesome. It was a tough time for our family, but it reminded us how lucky we are.

It's our turn to be part of the cure. We're donating $5 from every rental to LLS from now until there is no longer a need. By renting from us, you're doing your part as well.
