When do we return the tuxedos after the prom or wedding?
On weekdays we request you return tuxedos the following day. On weekends
we require they be back the following Monday. There is a $10.00 late charge per
Do you offer wedding specials?
With the rental of six tuxedos the grooms tux is no charge. With each
group of six additional tuxedos another one is free. We occasionally
have additional savings offered at bridal fairs in January. Check the
web site under "How to Save" for more savings!!!
Do you require a deposit when tuxedos are reserved?
During Prom Season we ask for a $20.00 deposit which is then applied to
your rental at time of pick up.
Who should pay for the wedding party tuxedos, the groom, the individual men or the bride?
There used to be hard fast rules as to who pays for what when it comes
to wedding expenses. Today, however, couples divide the expenses in a
way that is agreeable to everyone. Often times, the groom or his family
will pay for all of the tuxedos. Occasionally they will pay for those
men that have had to come from long distances. More often than not each
individual will pay for his own rental. First and foremost, it is VERY
important that you have let them know that they do have a financial
responsibility if they agree to be in your wedding. If they are not
told, it causes embarrassing situations when they are caught by
surprise at time of pick up.
We have provided answers to common questions we receive.
How much are your tuxedos?
The price of your tuxedo depends on the style of coat and the
accessories you have selected. Our basic classic tuxedo starts at
$69.50 which includes our classic one-button coat, pants, pleated
front white shirt, black wool vest, tie, shoes, and links and studs.
Designer coats are more expensive. Extra expenses also include fancy
or fullback vests and upgrades on shoe or shirt style.
Is the long tie too informal for a wedding?
If a wedding is considered more contemporary than traditional you have
more freedom of choice. If you feel better and like the look of a long
tie there is no reason not to choose it.
When can you pick up your tuxedos for your wedding?
Most weddings are Saturday events; therefore we have the tuxedos ready
for pick-up on Friday. At that point we will have everyone try on the
tuxedos in the store and do minor alterations at that point. If we have to
switch sizes or do extensive alterations you can come back that day or on
Saturday. If the wedding is during the week we will have the tuxedos ready
the day before.
How soon do we need to get our wedding party measurements?
One month before the wedding is ideal. It is always best for you to call
and see whose measurements we are missing a couple of weeks before the
wedding. If you should add someone the last minute or have to switch
someone out, remember we stock all of our own tuxedos and can easily handle
What do we do when part of the wedding party is out of town?
Upon booking the wedding, a file card is set up with all members of
the wedding party. For out of town guests, each person go to a
formalwear store near them, get measured, then send the measurements
to us via e-mail,
online measurement card,
What attire is appropriate for morning, afternoon and evening weddings?
Traditionally, appropriate attire for formal weddings before 6:00 p.m.
would be the gray cutaway or stroller with solid or striped pants.
For ultra-formal weddings after 6:00 p.m., we would suggest tails for
the groom and/or the entire wedding party. For informal daytime
weddings and other evening times, the groom has a vast selection of
styles from which to choose. We have one, two, three, and five button
coats, and an array of colored vests and matching ties. Please see
the section What, When, Where for further advice.
