To buy or Rent a Tux for Prom??

Tags : 

To buy or rent a tux for Prom? Stop!! This one is real simple, unless you have stopped growing or your 23 years old you need to RENT. Rose Tuxedo has been in the Tuxedo rental business for over 30 years one thing we have learned even for grown adults is, once you buy the tuxedo or suit it never fits again. You either gain weight or you lose weight or the tuxedo style suit you purchased  has changed.

So this is a common thing that happens every Prom season. Men’s Wear house has the big bucks to advertise and the students end up in one of their big box locations. Usually looking to rent a tuxedo. And usually because they got a $40 off tux rental coupon, what a scam. The rental is usually still over $200 even with the discount, don’t ask me how but they do it we hear it all the time.

So now your thinking we can go buy a tuxedo or suit for the same price as Men’s Wear house tux rental prices, maybe true but not a quality outfit, usually polyester garbage. I know your thinking, well it’s only for one night and maybe I can use it for a college event someday. Maybe you can but it still may not fit and I promise you others will know it’s not a quality suit. Maybe you also wondering why are Men’s Wear house prom tuxedo rentals so much? Well, it’s not because of their quality tuxedos it’s because of their OVERHEAD. It’s real simple, you pay more rent with your locations and size and you have to charge more. Have you ever seen a small Men’s Wear house location, no. Minimum rent for their spaces is $10,000 I’ve been told by management.

So don’t go out and buy a cheap polyester Prom Suit just because Men’s Wear houses tux rental prices have scared you. Prom doesn’t have to be expensive you just need to use a small local tuxedo shop that has the latest styles and hottest designer tuxedo suits. Most of the small Tuxedo specialist buy all the new styles every year and we know what’s hot. We vote on styles at the tuxedo convention and we talk to each other and we listen to you the customers and we make the best buys that saves you money. You can usually rent a tuxedo 3 times for the cost of a decent one to buy. It’s worth it and it won’t collect dust in your closet and not fit you next time, not to mention it maybe out dated when you wear it again and have holes in it from storage. let’s us to the work, cleaning and more. Thanks and have a safe prom to all. $79.95 Prom Special for a fitted tuxedo at Rose Tuxedo. Call us anytime 480 831-5255 www.rosetuxedo.com

Slim fit tuxedo and pants

Tags : 

Slim fit tuxedo and pants seem to be all the rage in clothes and formal wear these days. Is it for you? It maybe and don’t think for a minute that the formal wear industry is late to the game because they are not! It’s everywhere and even available in your local tuxedo rental shop. And just like I’m sure so many have learned you can wear clothes a little tighter to achieve the same look, smaller sizes equal a slimmer fit. Cheap Prom suits for rent don’t have to be over $200.

Lot’s a people are buying a new suit in the slimmer fit pant and coats but they are sacrificing the quality of the material. When you buying or renting a Prom suit and you think you are saving because it cost the same as a Tuxedo rental your really giving up quality. A polyester slim fit Prom suit and slim fit tux pants may work for the night but not in the long run. Tuxedo specialist have the slim fit designer tuxedo rentals and you can still save big by using a local tux shop that knows what they are doing. We’re following the trends just like you do and have the products that will be fitted to your size and tailored to give you the look the celebrities wear and it won’t wear out at least for the one night you have it on.

Some people go to Men’s Wear house for their wedding tuxedo and Prom tux rentals and they can’t believe how much the rental fee is, sometimes the rental fee is way over $200 to rent a tux or suit. That is crazy for a one day rental, I agree. And they think it cost that much everywhere to rent a suit and they are wrong. It’s way cheaper to get a designer tuxedo rental for the weekend than you think. So they leave the store and go out and buy something cheap that looks good for the moment but won’t last and won’t fit next time they put it on, trust me we see it all the time. People bring suits in that they bought a year ago and ask if we can tailor it but cheap suits don’t let you do this. Slim fit tuxedos will be tight next year I can almost guarantee it, so rent before you buy. Slim fit tuxedo are available in Blue and Grey because those are the hot tuxedo rental colors and the newest styles so they made them in slim fit and skinny pants.

Shop, shop shop. Call around, search the internet and don’t feel the pressure to buy a cheap suit to wear to prom or your wedding. A 100 percent Wool or better tux is what you want to wear and buy, that’s it. It’s breathes, it last and it can be tailored to look really good on you and these kind of suits will cost you over $350 plus to buy and that’s on the low end. The rest are made in China not Italy or a country that knows how to craft a great garment. I’m not trying to tell you what to do or what to rent or buy I’m just sharing the insider secrets of what looks good and what will last. Why pay over $250 to rent a Prom suit when you can rent one for $100 at Rose Tuxedo or a local tux shop and all the tailoring is included and choices of styles and sizes in stock. And for sure don’t go buy a cheap suit for $250 because it will look just like that, cheap. We have cheap tuxedo rentals and you still get the best quality for less and a designer label. Have a safe Prom or Wedding and look your best. Call us for your question anytime 602 957-0089 or live chat us 7 days a week and let us help you save and look great.

Prom Suits 2017 the Experience

Prom Suits 2017 the Experience!!

Let me try and wake up some thoughts and ideas of every possible Prom goer and their parents, families and friends that do a lot of Prom supporting this time of year. We hear the old cliche’s all the time like “Video killed the radio star” “Yellow Pages are no more because of the internet” and so many more things that have changed over the years because of technologies and other events. Likewise for renting tuxedos on line, but think about this for a minute.

We still go to baseball games, basketball, football and hockey. Why? When we can watch the games on TV in the comfort of our own homes or at a bar or friends house. The refrigerator is 15 feet away, no crowds, tv replays, no parking issues or crowds. But guess what, we still go to the games for the EXPERIENCE.

Renting a tuxedo or suit should be looked at the same way as going to a game. You want to go in and touch it and feel it before you rent something that is suppose to make you look and feel good. Plus all the colors in the tux shop and all the great advice that a tuxedo specialist shares, you can’t beat this. Your mom might there helping you pick the right look and your date could be there saying that color will not match my dress. Good luck doing any of this ordering a tuxedo rental online and be prepared to pay way more for your tuxedo rental. Good luck getting it on time and most of all good luck having it fit right. At your local tuxedo specialist shop there should be someone there to help you make a great choice and a perfect fit and some really great price points. And change orders can happen while you wait but not when you get a box with a wrinkled tuxedo suit from the mail man or UPS.

Now you decided to rent a tux locally, good for you. But where do you begin. Do you Google Tuxedo shop near me or do you look up Tuxedo rental reviews on a site like Yelp or do you ask a friend. Navigating the business review world can be tricky because you know a lot of small businesses have asked friends and family to post a positive business review on a site for them. It’s the Tuxedo companies lively hood having customers come in and it’s how every small business pays it’s bills. Some companies don’t have time for that they are just trying to take care of the business they have and some are always trying to find more ways to bring in new business. Fake reviews are wrong! They ruin the internet for everyone, but your going somewhere to rent your Prom suit and your ready for the experience because ordering online is not your thing.

Most local tux shops are great most of the time and can be off their game slightly during the busy Prom and wedding season, so now it’s up to you to relax and enjoy the experience, yes, the experience. Your not ordering online and opening a tuxedo rental box in your living room by yourself, nope. Your standing in a room full of Prom Suits feeling the vibe and looking around and checking out others doing the same thing, awesome. Maybe you get lucky and find your unique look right away or maybe it takes you awhile but either way your feeling it and enjoying the moment because in life and it’s a once in a life time EXPERIENCE  and it’s all  yours and anyone that came with you. I’m jealous because I would love to do it all over again so please enjoy it for me.

At Rose Tuxedo I can tell you our reviews are real and were not perfect. We have 3 locations and the best Prom Suit rental prices and selection in Arizona. We love what we do and you will experience this when you come in. Thank you to all a head of time and have a great Prom. Be safe and love it all. www.rosetuxedo 85016, 85029 tux rentals or call us anytime 602 375-8280

Prom 2017

Tags : 

Make Prom 2017 Great for Everyone
Prom is easily one of the most anticipated events of high school. For most high school students, especially the young ladies, it is a magical night filled with beautiful dresses, elegant hairstyles, amazing decorations, and of course, dinner and dancing with that special someone. Given the anticipation that builds up for months, or maybe even years, over prom, it is easy to forget that it is just one night in your life. It is easy to forget that this one evening, while special, and important, will not define your character as you grow into adulthood. What will define your character as you grow into adulthood will be how you handle bumps in the road to prom, how you treat your date, how you treat fellow prom attendees, and perhaps most importantly, how you treat yourself.

Not everyone is going to have the same expectations, or aspirations, for prom. That is okay, in fact, it should be encouraged. The world is a big, amazing place, filled with millions of people with different expectations, and aspirations. That is what makes it miraculous. All of these people co-existing to make the world a better place for everyone, particularly young people growing into adulthood. Prom is a metaphor for that world that you are about to step into.

There will be girls that choose a ten-dollar, vintage, thrift-store dress, over an expensive gown from an exclusive boutique. Applaud their resourcefulness. Applaud their individuality. There will be girls that decide on a simple updo that they do themselves, instead of going to a trendy hair salon. Applaud their creativity. Applaud their do-it-yourself attitude. There will be guys that decide on a powder blue tuxedo with a ruffled shirt. Applaud their confidence. Applaud their uniqueness.
There will be guys that cannot afford to take their date to the most expensive restaurant before prom. Applaud their being thrifty. Applaud their doing the best that they can.

There will be girls that have an expensive gown from an exclusive boutique. Applaud their style. Applaud their eye for beauty. There will be girls with intricate hairstyles done by a trendy hair salon. Applaud their vision. Applaud their confidence to stand out. There will be guys in classic black tuxedos. Applaud their regal style. Applaud how handsome all guys look in a tuxedo. There will be guys that can afford to take their date to an expensive restaurant before prom. Applaud their ability to splurge once in awhile. Applaud them doing the best that they can. Also be careful with the Tuxedo Shops that offer $40 off your Prom Suits, it’s usually because their charging more to give you that discount.

Let prom be what you want it to be. Don’t let other people define your prom experience for you. Don’t try to define other people’s prom experience. It is a right of passage for everyone at the same time. Be kind, respect each other, marvel in each prom attendees uniqueness, individuality, and contribution to the evening. Prom is a magical evening that will be gone too quickly. The memories however will stay with you for a lifetime. Help foster amazing memories for everyone. Help everyone that attends have a memory that they will look back on years from now and cherish. Have fun, be safe, and don’t forget, if you know a handsome gentleman looking for the perfect prom tuxedo, Rose Tuxedo has been renting for prom since 1982. We also rent lady tuxedos if you know a beautiful young lady looking for something a bit different than a traditional prom dress. Call us anytime for your Prom Suit. 602 957-0089

Hot Colors for Your Wedding In 2017

Hot Colors for Your Wedding In 2017!
If you are planning your wedding for 2017, it’s helpful to know what colors are trending for bridal gowns and tuxedos. This year we are seeing a swing away from bright, hot colors and glamorous styles to more simple and soft pastels. There are wonderful shades of blue, purple, gray and pink all in light and subtle shades for spring.

For summer there is a trend towards sweet colors and combinations such as tones of peach, blues, and dusty rose. For winter or autumn, good choices for this year are deep-dark oranges, plum, and pinks. Also, trending is a dark cranberry color for winter. The dark cranberry looks fabulous with black as your secondary color. Another great combination is charcoal gray with dusty purple and dark royal purple accents.

There is such a great choice of tuxedo rentals and no matter what colors you choose you can do a standard black tuxedo or a dark gray and there are a wide variety of vests, cummerbund, and tie sets to match your bridesmaids and groomsmen. A really hot idea is to have all of your bridesmaids in a different color and shade of a similar style of gown and different color vests for each groomsman. It’s so great to stand out individually.

Trending this year are many different shades of blue. The thing that’s so great about blue is it’s a popular color. Blue is also timeless and there are so many shades that can act as a secondary color. The groom can look so sharp in a blue tux, it doesn’t have to be the blue that was so popular in the 70’s. There are great shades of blue that look modern and sexy.

The shades of peach that are trending this year are more subtle, creamy white tones combined with darker peaches. And for accents, a dusky mint green is very pretty. The pinks that are popular this year also look classy and romantic. Another great color trend this year is for dark purple combined with a darker mint green color.The dress styles this year are trending more to a soft style with gentle sweeping lines.

In tuxedos this year it tends to be swinging more to a texture on the vests, such as paisley prints or plaid tuxedos. Some grooms are swinging more to the nostalgic trend of double breasted jackets in shades of navy, black or off-white jackets. Some tuxedos that are really popular this year are Xavier, Sebastian, Marbella, Sandstone and Jackson.
