Vera Wang, known mostly for her high end bridal line has decided to take over the market. This bridal queen is no longer out of reach. She started a line at Kohl's called Simply Vera, a line at David's Bridal called White by Vera Wang, and her newest venture takes her into the world of menswear.

Black by Vera Wang is to be sold at Men's Wearhouse stores starting in Spring 2012. The tuxes will be rented starting around $220.

WWD was able to get the inside scoop and described the new looks. "The inaugural collection will be offered in two contemporary fits and colors, one black and one gray. Both will feature a slighter, shorter jacket, 30.5 inches versus the standard 31-inch length, as well as a narrow 2 1/2-inch lapel. The black tuxedo will feature a two-button jacket with a notch, grosgrain lapel, side vents and flat-front pants with grosgrain stripes. The gray model will also be two-button, but with a satin-edge notch lapel, side vents and classic flat-front pants. The models will be offered in standard, slim and big and tall sizes." -Women's Wear Daily
