Tonight we take a look at a comic book style infographic from Finetuxedos.com with the interesting title of ‘The Top 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Rent a Tuxedo’. I must admit I have rented a tuxedo in the past for a James Bond styled party so this should be interesting.
The information is presented in a funny and humorous way, very much along the lines of a South Park episode. The scenarios are all based around a wedding and the types of ‘tuxedo accidents’ that might occur during the course of the night. From stinky armpits to fights and vomit and unwanted bed partners. The infographic outlines some funny situations and is then rounded up with pricing and why you should buy a tux from Finetuxedos.com.
Adding all the costs together it actually works out cheaper to buy a new tuxedo from Finetuxedos.com than it is to rent a dirty ‘used’ tuxedo from a tuxedo rental place. Good punchline.
The design of this infographic is great. It’s cool, hip and very original. They have definitely nailed the design on this one. They could have used more “smart” elements to compress the information but they still have a great approach and they really get their message across on this one.
This is a creative infographic no doubt. They decide to attract potential customers by telling them what could have happened to a rented tuxedo during the course of it’s life span. The use of South Park style characters is clever as it’s likely to appeal to a younger audience and ensure that this infographic is shared on social media sites and blogs.
All in all this is a funny infographic and the message that it’s cheaper to buy a new tuxedo online is conveyed well. Great design and good creativity. Prices seem reasonable and I feel compelled to go and have a look at the finetuxedos.com website.
I think the main reasons why people don’t buy tuxedos online is probably because they may want to try the tux on first or they don’t know their size or perhaps they think they will never wear it more than once.
My only question is, if I was to buy a new tux and some of those situations happened to me, would I be more out of pocket in cleaning fees and/or repairs?!
This infographic is one of the better ones we have seen at Infographics Maze lately and we really like it!
