Vera Wang and The Men's Wearhouse are to launch a collection of tuxedos, which will be available to rent.

The line, called Black by Vera Wang, will be exclusively available at Men's Wearhouse, and the company says it will offer "quality rental tuxedos at an accessible price point".

The first collection will initially consist of two modern tuxedo styles, with one in black and another in grey. They will feature a contemporary fit, with a slightly shorter coat length and a narrow lapel. The opening price point is $219.99 for a complete outfit, with both styles offered in standard, slim fit and big and tall sizing.

"For more than 20 years, I have shared my design vision with women around the world, so it is exciting to now have the opportunity to share that with men as well," said Vera Wang. "Men's Wearhouse was a natural retail partner for the Black by Vera Wang collection."

The line will be available from Men's Wearhouse stores in the US and Moores Clothing for Men in Canada in late spring 2012.
