How should I shop for a tuxedo?
We recommend that you visit each store personally, because that is the best way to judge value. You should be interested in only one price: the total price that you pay to rent the tuxedo. Ask for the total price when shopping to disclose any hidden costs such as insurance or dry cleaning. Normally, shoes and a full-back vest will cost you extra.
Why is an in-house inventory important?
An in-house inventory means that the rental store holds all of its tuxedos in stock rather than ordering them from somewhere else. Any store can show you a catalog or have perfect displays, but true satisfaction comes from trying on your suit.
What should I do about the men in my wedding party who live out of town?
Most tuxedo shops perform courtesy fittings for out of town weddings at no charge. Send the men to a tuxedo shop in their area to be measured by a professional. Save yourself the hassle and do not let a well-meaning relative do the measuring.
REMEMBER, THE TUXEDO IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE MEASUREMENTS
