The Most Shocking Promposal Ever!

Los Angeles, CA. April 13, 2015 – It’s that time of year again, when high school boys muster up the courage to ask their dream date to Prom for a night filled with trepidation and excitement. Yes, millions of boys across the country will find themselves in a super awkward situation, standing alone helplessly, while an older gentleman fumbles around their crotch area, trying to quickly measure their inseam for what can only be explained as a very embarrassing and nightmarish experience that many seasoned men refer to as tux rental hell.

Enter SimpleTux, an online tuxedo rental company, and its 2015 West Coast Prom Tour, where a team of reps comes to your school with a mobile 3D body scanner that uses Microsoft’s non-invasive Kinect technology to collect all the necessary measurements in under 30 seconds without laying a hand on you. Did I mention they come to your school? It’s the first tux rental company to fully revolutionize the entire user experience, from the way measurements are taken to the way the tux is delivered to your door a full 5 days before your event. This ensures a quality fit and a professionally styled tuxedo in 30 minutes whereas the traditional method takes north of 3 hours (a minimum of 3 trips to the shop). Mind officially blown.

The 2015 West Coast Prom Tour runs from April 13th through May 30th and will visit a select number of its 150 partnering high schools along the west coast (schedule to be released shortly). Equipped with velvet ropes, a lounge area and an on site stylist, SimpleTux is revamping the entire rental experience from A-Z. With complete rental packages starting at $105, free delivery, complimentary concierge and a “cash for schools” program, this is truly a win-win for everyone involved.


SimpleTux consists of three friends from middle school and a burnt out tech entrepreneur turned carpenter. Our story is not like that of your typical startup. They are all in our mid-30s, mostly married, half with families. Yet, they decided to take up the challenge of updating a very dated industry because they felt like it needed to be done. Since its 2013 inception SimpleTux has continued to deliver on its promise to save customers time and money while looking good and feeling great.
