Make Room for Suits and Tuxedos in Your Wardrobe

Tags : 

Let’s get to fixing that wardrobe and messy closet, fellas! This week we’ll talk about items you need to remove from your life and why you should replace some of those items with suits , suit pieces, slacks, and more! Don’t forget that Rose Tuxedo offers options to purchase suits , shirts, and more!

The One Year Rule

All over the internet, you can find people coming up with ways to tell if you’ve worn an item for a year, or telling you to get rid of anything you haven’t worn in a year or more. This is a great way to clear out space in your closet. If you can’t remember the last time you wore an item—get rid of it. This goes for things that don’t fit, are out of style, or you shouldn’t have bought in the first place!

Take everything out

Spread as many of your pieces of clothing out as possible. Seeing how much you have can help you realize what you do and don’t need. Seeing it in a drawer or hanging in your closet doesn’t really make you realize HOW MUCH you have.

Multiples

If you have 3 of a nearly identical shirt (and it’s not a staple like white or solid colors ) maybe it’s time to remove some. You don’t need 3 of the same sweater, or 6 pairs of sweatpants, or 3 t-shirts with lame jokes on them.

Nostalgia

If you’ve kept a shirt, jacket, or some other item of clothing for sentimental value, maybe it’s time to take it out of the closet. If it’s that important to you, you can put it in a shadow box or find a more useful method of storing it (primarily if you can’t or don’t wear it anymore).

When to Donate

If you have an item of clothing that you don’t wear anymore but it’s still in good shape maybe you can donate it to a thrift store or to a friend or family member who’d wear it.

When to Toss

Items with major stains, holes, or structural damage do not need to be donated. Consider cutting them up for scraps and rags or tossing it in the trash (or to a recycling center if you can find one that deals with clothes and fabrics).

Get creative

If you have a shirt you can’t wear or jeans that aren’t appropriate for daily wear you can get creative. Make a shirt into a pillow or turn some old jeans into a purse or bag (these ideas may require the help from someone who knows how to sew, but it would make great gifts or home-décor).

Some Suits never go out of style

Suits look great on nearly all men! You also can’t go wrong with having a couple 3-piece suits you can piece out and use creatively. Owning a couple different suits, ties, dress shirts, jackets, and slacks means you’re ready for just about anything. We’re not saying to get rid of your jeans, but help make your wardrobe more mature by replacing some of those t-shirts with collared shirts and those tattered jeans with slacks!

Stay organized

The internet is crawling with storage ideas from how to use shoe trees to hanger hacks to storage hacks. Don’t be afraid to experiment with storage ideas.

Be you

If you love an item in your wardrobe, don’t listen to anything anyone says. If you wear it, keep it. Just remember that there is always a better option. But never stop being you!

Groom Tuxedo

Blue Tuxedos, the New Black!!!

For the Groom Tuxedo or not? The Oscars of 2017 were invaded by the Blue Tuxedo. When styled properly and the right color blue, the Blue tuxedo is a head turner. Lets list a few of the stars that wore blue, Damien Chazelle, The Rock and Ben Affleck are just a few. So your in Arizona and don’t know where to go for your Blue Tuxedo or Suit? I know where to go, it’s Rose Tuxedo, they rent Tuxedo’s and suits in every size, shape and color. With many different shades of Blue they have the right Tuxedo or Suit for you. Most are in stock right now and can be tailored to fit right away. With 3 convenient locations in Arizona there is a Rose Tuxedo Showroom near you. But have we answered the question are Blue Tuxedos the right choice for the Groom’s Tuxedo?

You will want to wear your blue properly, even Black Tie Events are accepting of properly worn and colored Blue Tuxedo’s. The best looking are the Royal Blue with Black Lapels and Black Tie and the Midnight Blue is absolutely a crowd please especially with black trim. Navy Blue looks really sharp and will make you look good at your event whether it’s for a Groom Tuxedo or Black Tie events.

Blue Suits are sharp for formal outings and a Blue Dinner Jacket can be the talk of the event if done right. Make sure to ask your professional at Rose Tuxedo and they have a tailor standing by to get you the best fit possible for your event or wedding.

Now why are Blue Tuxedos and Blue Suits making the statement now? First of all anyone looking at fashion history will see that Blue made an appearance in the 1930’s and research shows that most of the men then were wearing dark blue tuxedos and suits, they were considered very classy back then. Then came the loud Blue of the 1970’s with the big frilly shirts and huge lapels. That put a damper on blue for a short time.
Well, then men that wanted to make a statement moved back to blue, away from the traditional Black or White Tuxedos and starting turning heads again with how sharp they looked, same with Blue Suits. The key is how you wear and accessorize to how good you will look. 
Make sure you go to Rose Tuxedo if your in Arizona for all your tuxedo and suit needs for any occasion from weddings to proms, parties and formals and black tie events. Always in stock and a tailor standing by to make it perfect the same day, come by and see us for your upcoming event. On a personal note Blue Tuxedos were popular in 1982 because I wore one for my High School prom tuxedo and I remember that clearly. Blue Tuxedos for Groomsmen or a Groom tux are popular now but that will change in the next few years and a Black classic grooms tuxedo will always be in style. You can’t go wrong and where here to help you. 602 957-0089

Blue Tuxedos and Gray Tuxedos Are Rocking the Event Circuit

Tags : 

Blue Tuxedo, So you want to wear Navy Blue Tuxedos? Whether you are going to Prom. a wedding, a quinceanera or a fabulous high class party there are a number of styles and colors that are really standing out this year. Business Insider reported that over half of Hollywood’s hottest men sported a midnight blue tuxedo at The Golden Globes in 2016. Men seem to be leaning toward the trend of more color, but muted colors, such as grays and dark reds.

What happened to Black Tuxedos?

Black tuxedos have become passé and men are wanting to stand out in a canvas of black here, black there, black tuxedos everywhere. The navy blue tuxedo is a compelling choice in tuxedo color because it gives a gentleman a chance to be unique while still being suitable for any semi-formal or formal event requirements.

Blue Tuxedo hostile takeover

The Slate blue tuxedo was at its highest popularity in the 1930’s. It took a decline toward the 1940’s, however, in 2016 the navy blue tuxedo rebounded as a fashion choice in tuxedos. Among the most popular tuxedo trends is the navy blue ‘Hudson’ tuxedo that has a beautiful black satin lapel and black satin besom pockets. It has a slim fit design that is sleek and elegant.

You would think that the powder blue tuxedo would have seen its demise in the late 60’s and early 70’s with the awful ruffled shirts. Not so, say fashionistas. The powder blue tuxedo is coming back with a vengeance. When you take a slim fit powder blue tuxedo with a black lapel and pair it with black slacks, black bow tie, and black cummerbund you have a timeless look that is definitely unique and will make you fashionable. I personally went to Prom in 1982 and the hottest tuxedo color then was Navy Blue. My family back in Michigan who own President Tuxedo mailed me out to Phoenix AZ a Navy blue tuxedo to wear to my prom. My late Uncle was the best. I took it to have it pressed after I took it out of the box and I was a sharp looking prom goer.

Grey Tuxedo is the trend

In a field of black, a gray tuxedo is definitely a hot tuxedo! A recent Tuxedo blog called gray tuxedos the “Icing on the Cake”. You want a look that is elegant and tasteful, yet catches the eye. Gray is just the trick. It is decadent without being ostentatious. There are so many great shades of gray, from a graphite gray to a light gray, a medium gray with a print and a steel gray, there are wide choices of gray in any hue to fit your skin tone. Maybe this is why Gray Tuxedos have made such a big hit the last year or so, can you believe it was brown Tuxedos before this? What tuxedo color will be the next more popular?

For men with blonde hair and a light skin tone, a dark gray tuxedo is just the trick to making the skin tone and blonde hair pop. Dark gray has the versatility to go with any skin tone and men with brown hair and medium tones look sexy in a dark gray tux. For men with darker olive or brown skin tones and black hair, a light gray suit is so elegant and dashing.

You Too Can Look Like a James Bond Incarnate

Tags : 

No other male outfit is so pleasing to the eye as a suit. Suits have been around for a very long time and don’t seem to be getting out of fashion, improvements are made to it and wow, I got say this because my love for suits has no bounds – suits are classy, graceful and elegant.

A suit or tuxedo can be the best investment a man can make. Renting or owning a tuxedo /suit opens the doors to many amazing costume ideas from your Super Spy alter ego to Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, James Bond, or Barney from “How I Met Your Mother” and Harvey Specter in “Suits”. You’ll look great and everyone will think you’re loaded (figuratively in every sense of the word). Get your suit here for a great Halloween costume and something nice to wear to your cousin’s wedding you’re being forced to go to.

Like any good super spy or covert operations agent, you’ll need a suit or a tuxedo if it won’t draw extra attention to yourself. Don’t show up to a stranger’s wedding or a place of business in a full tuxedo—stick with a suit, maybe even leave the jacket or vest at home.

When picking out your super-spy suit, pick one that is fitted to your body type—this means you may have to have it tailored, but it’ll be worth it in the end. Wearing the right clothing will make you look leaner and more confident when you swagger around looking like James Bond and NPH had a baby.

Suit jackets and vests are great for hiding gear! Mobsters always find great ways to conceal weapons with fancy holsters from head to toe, so you can hide just about anything in the right suit. Hide a radio, recorder, intelligence sheets, and more on your person with jacket or vest pockets, garters, and more. Buy one of those fancy camera pens and put it in your coat pocket and use your Bluetooth headset to look like a busy professional while you’re actually getting information from home base! Or, you know, stalk your buddy to find out what he wants for his birthday.

From firearms to flasks, suit pockets are ideal for concealing items (Warning: smuggling guns or alcohol is dangerous and can cause legal repercussions, proceed with caution). From undercover police or legitimate spies to the average Joe at a “dry” event, a suit may be mildly inconvenient if you’re not used to it but between how amazing you’ll look to all of the ways you can use it to your advantage, it’ll be worth it in the end. Special belts with holsters, breast pockets, and more can hold nearly anything you can imagine. Tips for carrying weapons can just as easily work for other items—especially for covert operations! If dressing up for a costume party, skip the real guns and go with Nerf, paintball/airsoft, water guns, or other fairly-obviously fake weapons to prevent scaring anyone.

Nothing says a man has sense, got smarts, matured and is good natured and manly than a suit on him.

Buying and Renting Tuxedo: Regular Store or Shop Online?

Tags : 

One of these days, you’ll be faced with the decision to either go to a regular brick-and-mortar store or shop online. And to make the best decision for your money and also for your occasion, you need the best accurate information available in renting tuxedos. Read this article to get that information you need.

The major line separating in-stock inventory from online shopping is the issue of urgency. Let’s explain. There are times in your life when you need something right away and not three weeks from now. One of those times could be when your plumbing in your home fails and you need a licensed plumber to come out and repair your pipes before everything in your home floods. Another time could be when your car broke down and you need a spare tire in order to get to work on time and prevent being fired. One time that most people take for granted is a spur of the moment need for a tuxedo or a suit. It happens all year with Groom Tuxedo, Prom tux rentals and all kinds of black tie affairs. in-stock tuxedos

Sharing a Personal Experience

Thinking of the last time that I needed a tuxedo, I think about taking a girl to prom and asking her out at the last minute and being told that no one in the whole area had an available tux in my size. I recall showing up to her home in a suit that was too big for me and looking like a complete fool. I remember going to a wedding a few years back and the men who were attending the wedding, all looked like they ordered their suits straight off the internet. Some of them had suits on too big or too small or in a color which did not suit them well…Yes, I used a pun there. It was solely intentional.

What did I do?

I opted to search the whole internet for a business which could provide me with a suit last minute and check into just how much it would cost me in order to get a suit spur of the moment. Sure, there were plenty of places however many of them also charged an arm and leg in order to make that happen. I want to know that when I am looking for something, that I am not going to break the bank when purchasing or renting something like a tuxedo. I mean let’s face it, it’s not like it’s an everyday item which I am going to need. It’s not like I would even use it more than once likely in a couple years time. Not many people do unless they are lawyers or professionals of the like. tuxedos at Rose Tuxedo

At Rose Tuxedo, I established that there are more than just one location in which I can order from or who are able to help me find what I am looking for. They have nearly every size you could think of or need for that matter. There is no rush fee that is needed to be paid in order to get what you need and they are able to offer not only your everyday tux but also tuxedo’s which is highly uncommon. We even take care of Men’s Wearhouse last minute Grooms Attire alterations that they can’t do because all their tuxedos come from out of state. wanted

There is a need for people to rent tuxedo’s for other events such as weddings, funerals, business meetings and get together. There is no set type of tux that you have to adhere to. Prom is a popular time of year and so is a homecoming. Teens will work hard to be able to show up looking like a million bucks in order to impress the girl they are taking to prom in hopes that it leads to much better things or to at least show up in prom court. If you have an extra slim figure, just know that they even carry those lines of tuxes. I know how hard it can be to find a tuxedo that is slim enough for a slim guy, let’s face it, not all men are big and brawny.inventory

If you need the tuxedo for more than just one day, well there are even weekend rental rates which will allow for you to keep your tux from Thursday until Monday for no extra charge. If you are requiring the tuxedo for a longer period of time, heck, they even offer that. All you have to do is speak to someone about the amount of time that you are requiring the item. It’s really that simple. The Arizona Heart Ball was this weekend and we had over 5 last minute tuxedo rentals on the same day, you can’t do that with online tuxedo rentals and no rush charge and cheap tuxedo rentals than online. www.rosetuxedo.com Good luck and best wish with all your tuxedo rentals and suit rentals for all occasions.
