4 Common Misconceptions about Renting Formal Wea

As your wedding day approaches, you are making many decisions about your special day. As a bride, you are probably pouring over the top bridal magazines as you shop for your special dress. You will spend a lot of time, energy, and money to look your best for the love of your life. You will also want your groom’s attire to complement your own. Therefore, consider these misconceptions before making your decision about his formal wear.

A tuxedo is just a tuxedo. Formal wear specialists often offer similar tuxedos. But not all tuxedos are the same. The quality may vary from chain to chain as well as the service. Therefore, you will want to select one specialist to assist your entire wedding party. When you use one specialist, they will deliver consistent quality garments. You will also establish a rapport that will ensure higher quality of service.

My bridal shop is a formal wear specialist. Often you will find a bridal shop that will offer to fit your groomsmen as well as your ladies. We have found that bridal shops specialize in brides, not grooms. A tuxedo formal wear specialist will give you the attention you need in selecting tuxedos that will flatter your groom. They are experts at measuring, fitting, and finding that right garment to complete your groom so that he will complement you.

Only national formal wear chains have the colors I need. There seems to be a strange myth or misconception about colors and color swatches. The colors you need to match your bridesmaids’ gowns may be unique and special. However, these colors are not patented. Instead, dress makers are generous in making them accessible to all formal wear specialists, including independent and regional chains. You will be able to find the vests and ties to accommodate your needs.

Only national formal wear chains can accommodate my out-of-town groomsmen. Your out-of-town groomsmen are important to you. You want them to feel included. And you want them to blend with the rest of the bridal party. But you have another option than the national chain. Your independent and regional formal wear specialists will accommodate your needs by working with one another. Tuxedofit is a convenient resource for your out-of-town wedding party. They will help you to find a place near your groomsman where he can be fitted for his tuxedo. These measurements are simply submitted online and your personal formal wear specialists will handle the rest (

Your wedding day is fast approaching and you will want your groom and groomsmen to be well dressed. So consider these tips before making your decision. And trust the formal wear specialists to help make you and your groom shine.

Originally, the term referred to a man of wealth or high social position. There was also an implied expectation of exercising one's best behavior and being chivalrous.

Today, a gentleman is he who values and seeks high quality-not just in his acquisitions and possessions, but also in his own behavior and appearance. Any of us can become today's definition of a gentleman, but it's not an easy task.

Those who aspire to become a gentleman will be kind to others, live up to high standards for his own conduct, be open-minded with others, exhibit good manners, be genuinely interested in the well-being of others, keep his promises, and improve the world in his sphere of influence.

As your custom clothier, of course we focus on assisting you to create the appearance of a gentleman. We hope that, as we work together to create that outer appearance, you're also creating the inner character of a gentleman to match. This is one of life's greatest aspirations in our individual journeys, and we wish you all success in the endeavor.

Should I Rent or Buy a Tuxedo?

Rental Myths
First thing’s first.  There are a couple of pervasive myths surrounding the world of rental tuxedos that we’d like to get straight.  When deciding whether to rent or buy your tuxedo, it’s important to know the truth about what you can expect.

Myth #1: Rental tuxedos are always too boxy and never fit right.
This was a common criticism of the rental tuxedo industry for years.  But in recent years the industry has really stepped up its game.  The problem was that all tuxedos (with little variation) were made in the same classic cut.  While this cut fit a wide variety of people well, it was boxier than many people preferred.  Especially when the trend for more fitted clothing took root.
These days tuxedos are made in 1 of 3 standardized cuts:
* Classic: The fullest cut and once the only cut.
* Modern: Updated from the classic.  It’s a trimmer option that fits most people really well, without being too boxy or restricting.  Higher arm-holes also improve the range of motion.
* Slim: The newest and most trim of the three cuts.  Slim tuxedos have less fabric all around.  That means trimmer coat sleeves, slightly trimmer pant legs, and they are designed to hug the ribs a little tighter.  These are the best options for thin men, or men who prefer a more tailored look.  Slim cuts may not be available in plus sizes.  While there aren’t many slim fit tuxedos currently available, there are more styles every year.

Once you’ve determined your correct sizes and you’ve picked out a tuxedo in the fit you prefer, you’re now able to rent a tuxedo that fits just the way you want it to.
Myth #2: Rental tuxedos are always cheap and worn out.
Actually rental tuxedos are very high quality, well-constructed garments that are made specifically to withstand a lot of use and dry-cleaning without wearing out.  A rental tuxedo is much more durable and long-lasting than your average retail garment and is fashioned from an array of high quality materials that won’t wear out either.
Rental tuxedos are available in well-known name brands and labels like Michael Kors, Ike Behar, Calvin Klein, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Allure Men, just to name a few.
Black rental tuxedos are almost always made from 100% wool with thread counts ranging from around 80 (tropical worsted wool) all the way up to luxuriously soft Super 140’s wool.
With strong construction and quality materials, your rental tuxedo shouldn’t show any previous signs of wear, should maintain its shape, and should fit you well.
Pros and Cons
Next we’re going to take a look at some of the biggest pros and cons about renting that you should consider before you decide whether you’re going to rent or buy your tuxedo.

 Of course there are other considerations as well.  If you are the kind of guy who likes to try different formal looks (i.e. shawl collars, peak lapels, dinner jackets, midnight blue, grey), but your clothing budget doesn’t rival Gatsby’s, renting makes sense.
Your time frame is another important consideration.  When ordering a ‘Made-to-Measure’ tuxedo, it can take a few weeks up to a month or more.  If your event is sooner than that, most rental places have inventory on hand that you can walk out with the same day.  Even those that don’t can get you something within a week without expensive shipping charges or change out fees.
Overall, renting a tuxedo makes a lot more sense for most people.  If you’re going to prom, rent a tuxedo.  You’re still growing and you’ll probably want to match your date in something you won’t necessarily wear again.  If you’re in a coordinated wedding party, rent a tuxedo.  You’ll need to match the other groomsmen and possibly the bridesmaid’s colors.  The rental process is fairly quick and painless and the helpful folks at your local formal vendor can make it easy as cake.  Assuming cake is really easy.  I don’t bake much.  If you’re a guy that has quit growing and attends a fair amount of black tie formal functions, investing in a new tuxedo made for you may set you back a pretty penny at first, but should pay off over time.  For everyone else, renting is where the smart money is.

How To Dress For Ring Dance

Tuxes, rentals, alternatives to black tie, and everything else a young man needs to know for Ring Dance and Prom.

This is the time of year for high school proms, and that means it’s also the time of year for a lot of dress-related anxiety.
Relax and take a deep breath with us here. Sure, I set a towel on fire with a hair dryer when I got ready for my high school prom, but I’ve learned a lot since then, and you get all that wisdom of the ages handed down to you here.

Getting dressed for prom is fun. And there’s one simple trick that, more than any other piece of advice, will guarantee that you’re one of the best-looking guys there:
Keep it classic, keep it timeless; and keep it tasteful.
These are all three facets of the same idea — that you want to look like a man who took control of his clothes, not a man whose clothes got draped over him by a relative or a rental tux salesman.
That means staying away from the gaudy offerings you’ll see a lot of places. Whether you go for a tux or a suit, avoid anything — seriously, anything — that comes in a shiny, plastic-like, brightly-colored fabric.
Instead, deck yourself out in the powerful elegance of black and white. With just a few tasteful touches of color here and there you’ll be an impressive alternative to the guys in the goofier, novelty-style “formal” garments.
