Fashion Ideas for your Christmas Party this year

Tags : 

If you’re going to a Christmas party this year, chances are someone is going to take pictures (posed or candid) so make sure you look great in any and all photos at the festive parties this year by following our advice!

Fashion Ideas for your Christmas Party this year

If your party does not warrant a full suit , try a more casual look with jeans and a suit jacket, or jeans and a suit vest. Or, stick with nice slacks and a tie. You can piece out a suit (rental or purchased) to achieve many levels of great fashion with ease. Today we’ll talk about some general tips to keep you looking sharp in all photos this holiday season.

Get a fresh haircut

Chances are, you’ll be seeing some friends and family you don’t see very often. People may be coming in from out of town to see you and other loved ones, so spruce up a little, get those sideburns trimmed, and even out the back a little. Even a haircut at a cheap or bargain barber shop can help you look like a million bucks.

Keep shirts and pants wrinkle free

Nothing screams “I don’t care,” more than a wrinkled tie or suit pants with un-needed creases. If you fold your dress shirts and pants, iron those fold creases out before you wear them! Have them dry-cleaned if you must (especially if you lack an iron or the ability to iron clothing).

Try one piece of festive clothing per outfit

Ugly Christmas sweater parties are all the rage right now, but if you’re not going to one of those, do not overdo it on the holiday-themed items. Stick to a tie, socks, or vest, not all three. Speaking of the “ugly Christmas sweater” look, please avoid the Ugly Christmas Sweater Suit that is going viral online right now. Just, don’t. Unless it’s an aforementioned themed party. Then go ahead and do it! Ask us and maybe we can bring one in for the rental.

Do not overdress too much, and do not under dress

It’s ok if you spruce your outfit up a bit and go a bit above the dress code, but if it’s a casual party it is best to avoid a full tuxedo . If it’s a party that requests formal attire (like business-related events) then it might not be wise to show up in jeans and a sports coat. Read our previous blog about dressing for the event here.

Relax! It’s Christmas, just don’t fall asleep with your mouth open with a gravy stain on your shirt or tie and the photos will probably end up fine. Do something foolish after drinking too much eggnog and you might end up with a new meme via Facebook. Be comfortable, be fashionable, and smile; make these moments with your family count and all of the photos will be cherished.

For taking a Christmas Card photo, why not go a little extra fancy and make you and your family look the best they can with a suit rental (or a pieced out suit as previously mentioned) and a little extra care taken in the appearance of all of those in the photo. Make other families jealous of how perfect you and your loved ones look on the Christmas card!

Tuxedo rentals from Catalogs: Things you should know

Tags : 

So it’s time to rent a tuxedo or suit for a wedding, prom or some special event, you’ve done your research online or you know a local tuxedo rental shop you’re going to check out.

When you get there you see some very nice designer tuxedos and suits on display but you don’t see the one you might be looking for.

paulmurrell

You ask the tuxedo specialist your working with if they have any more tuxedos to choose from or know of the one you want. Here comes the Tuxedo Catalog with all the designer names, Ike Evening by Ike Behar, Jean Yves tuxedos, Ralph Lauren tux, Michael Kors Men’s Formal Wear for rental, Joseph Abboud black tuxedo, After Six, Perry Ellis suits and Calvin Klein tuxedos.

Why do some tuxedo and bridal shops use Tuxedo Catalogs?

Because it’s very hard to carry all of the latest styles of designer tuxedos and suits rentals in stock.

Most Tux specialists attend the IFA show (International Formal Wear Association) or meet with Formal Wear Sales person who comes through town and shows you all the latest tuxedos to choose from and purchase for the following year.

This is when it gets hard for the Tuxedo shop owner, what styles and colors should they buy, what’s going to be popular, and what will customers be coming in and asking for. It’s never easy and unfortunately, we can’t buy everything. But the Tuxedo wholesaler buys almost every new style that comes out because they want to serve every little Tuxedo operator across the USA.

One and two store tuxedo shops use the Formal Wear wholesalers Catalog to offer their customers a wide range of Tuxedos and suits to choose from that they didn’t buy, but all this service comes with a nice price tag.

So you like a designer tuxedo rental from a Catalog…

Jim’s Formal Wear or Paul Morrell catalog tuxedo rentals may have what you’re looking for, now what? The Tuxedo specialist will quote you a rental price from the catalog which is usually higher than any tuxedo or suit rental that they carry in stock, why? Because if you own something you can rent it or sell it much cheaper than if you have to pay a middleman (Tuxedo Wholesaler) for their product.jimsformalwear

A typical fee for the Tuxedo specialist to sub-rent a tuxedo from a catalog is $85 and that usually does not include shoes (shoes weigh the shipping box down a lot, and the price goes up). Paying the sub-rental price and shipping fees the local Tuxedo specialist has to make some money and will charge you a lot more.

 

Every tuxedo shop varies their catalog tuxedo rental price depending on their overhead and more. I’ve seen some tux shops charge from $125 to $250 for the same tuxedo rental out of the book. These are the same Tux Catalogs that every tux shop account owner gets.

Some of the issues that a customer should be aware of

The big question when ordering a sub-rental tuxedo from a Tux shops catalog is “how soon will the tuxedo arrive before the day of use?”.

The answer is usually 2 days before the event, one day before is also very common. And the reason is: the Wholesaler does not ship out the suit rental or tux until the Monday before the weekend because they were possibly suing it the weekend before yours (most tux rental outfits are worn on the weekends) so even though you may order it one month before it still won’t arrive until 2 days before you need it, scary right?

Yes. Why?

What if you were not measured correctly and something doesn’t fit?

Or what if the shipping box doesn’t arrive or gets lost? These are not fun things to think about before a big formal event.

formal-knight-tuxedos-logo

Formal Knight is a men’s formal wear wholesaler and they ship from California and that helps us at Rose Tuxedo get faster service in AZ. Rose Tuxedo has been in the men’s formal wear business since 1980 and is also a Premier account with all it’s Tux and suit Wholesale companies so we get special tux pricing and VIP shipping, that helps our customers get their outfits faster and we can pass the rental savings on to you.

In my humbler opinion after 30 years in the Men’s formal Wear industry…

Always try to find something a local Tuxedo shop has in stock. Most owners have bought some of the latest designer tuxedos and suit rentals available and you can usually get a better tuxedo rental price when it’s a suit or tux they own and carry in stock, plus same day rentals and easy tuxedo measurement corrections. But if you don’t see what you’re looking for then go for the catalog tuxedo rental and most of the time everything usually works out fine.menswearhouse4

For those who don’t know Men’s Wearhouse doesn’t own any of their Tuxedo or Suit rentals in stock, you heard that right. They have New tuxedo and suits you can buy on the racks but no rentals in the back room or racks, just ask them.

Men’s Wear house gets all their tuxedo and suits rentals from their Tuxedo plant out of state. They have one or two big Men’s Wearhouse big plant’s that puts all the tux and suit rentals together and then ship them to their Men’s Wearhouse location’s across the United States, this is scarier than getting a tuxedo rental from a catalog.

One of the other nice benefits of renting tux’s local

The money you spend in State stays in the economy, and most of the time you can pick up your tux outfit a day early if you ask or return it a day late because it doesn’t need to be shipped back to anyone.

I hope this helps you in your men’s formal wear renting process and if anything it should give you some idea on how the process is all done, and ease your mind on dressing up on some of the most important day and times of your life.

Happy Holidays to all and Rose Tuxedo has 3 tuxedo shops in Arizona ready to help you for any Men’s formal wear need. You can also live chat me 7 days a week and ask a question or get a tuxedo rental quote. www.rosetuxedoaz.com tuxedo rentals

Tuxedos for Women have become very popular

Tags : 

Tuxedos for woman have become the hottest thing in the Formal Wear industry. Some call them the Little Black Tux in reference to the Little Black Dress. The ladies keep pushing the boundaries in life and this is a hot spot. Rose tuxedo has been renting Men’s formal Wear in Phoenix AZ since 1982. We have never seen the so much excitement from the ladies from all over the world interested in renting a Ladies Tuxedos. We get over 2 calls a day and 2 or 3 emails and a few live chats on our Tux web site. 

Lady Tuxedo

What’s originally thought of as a men’s dress style has expanded to women. More people such as Lady Gaga and other female celebrities have taken this fashion style and run with it. However, it didn’t just have it start within the past 10 years. There’s a history behind the women tuxedo that started over 50 years back. Find out why lady tuxedos have become so popular in recent years. 

Let’s start off with some of the origins of the tuxedo. It was formed in the Victorian era as a less formal jacket than the typical tailcoat men wore to the more special gatherings. However, it stuck with the motif of a white dress shirt, black tie, and matching dress shoes (particularly Oxfords). Women around that time had an evening gown. However, with the advent of World War I, women also adopted more of a suit than dress presence. 

Coco Chanel is credited with creating a more suit motif back in 1914. She created her own fashion trend by having a fur-trimmed jacket with matching-ankle skirt. Also, as the 1920 and 1930s came about, even women started to wear their own zoot suits. It was during the film industry in the 1930s, actresses like Marlene Dietrich, wore tuxedos in movies such as: “Morocco and “Blonde Venus.” 

As time has gone on, more women are taking a dominant role to show that they can also wear suits. It’s not just about showing off femininity through dresses or showing skin. Different stars like Janelle Monáe, have shown the balance between being a woman yet still dressing in a manner that says “less is more.” 

This style is much more about being comfortable and confident with wearing something that wasn’t meant for the opposite sex. Of course, the dress will never go out of style, but more woman are adopting the business suit or a female tuxedo as their formal wear of choice. 

In fact, you have different websites that cater to this fashion like Rose Tuxedo out of Phoenix, AZ. It’s becoming more and more popular these days. There is a certain edge and mystique with wearing a women tuxedo. Women can still show off their beauty while having a sense of strength in wearing a tuxedo that fits their frame. Rose Tuxedo gives you the option of renting a tux for weddings, business meetings, proms, or any other evening gathering. You can get the right color and fit for any time of the year.

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

Gilbert: We’ve got your back at Rose Tuxedos

Tags : 

Is your big day coming soon? Your prom? The day your get married? Or maybe you’re the best man? Are you the father of the bride or groom? Perhaps you have a job interview coming up. Could be you have an audience with the Queen.  Whatever the reason, there is only one place to go to get yourself dressed up in a very fitting formal wear for the best impression of yourself.  That is Rose Tuxedo Rentals.  In fact, there are several locations surrounding the Phoenix area: Central Phoenix, Northwest Phoenix, and Mesa. So, dear people of Gilbert, AZ, you are never far away when you need assistance with your celebration attire.

Having the correct ensemble for a special occasion is not always as easy as it may seem.  First there is deciding on the style.  Yes, tuxedos come in several styles. A gentleman has more choices than just black in today’s formal wear colors.  There are blacks, dove grays, and white choices, for example.  And, the style of the suit can also vary.  Some tuxedos and formal suits can have vests in a large choice of colors and styles. Neckties can also be chosen in myriad colors, textures, and forms.

This is why Rose Tuxedo is such a sought-after location for men who need tuxedos.  This company has been in business for over 30 years, so they know everything there is to know about celebratory fashion. In our more casual culture of the 21st century, most men have not invested in a formal suit or a tuxedo .  Therefore, when a momentous event requires their attendance, they are not prepared to go to their closets and find the correct clothing.  Call Rose Tuxedo, they can help, and they are as close as cell phone.

What about shoes?  Again, many men, young men in particular, may not own their own formal shoes.  In a wedding it is likely that the bride will want to have all the groomsmen wearing the same type shoe.  This is not a problem for Rose Tuxedo.  They rent formal shoes.  Their inventory is extremely large, so it is easy for them to alter a suit on the spot, and find a shoe in almost any size that is ever needed.

If you are new to tuxedo renting, or if you have been around this block many times before, you will find the service at Rose Tuxedo far beyond your expectations.  The staff is well-versed in the business of dressing men for special events.  They want their customers to feel comfortable;  find exactly what they want;  and leave feeling like a million bucks.  Naturally, there are consultants for the bride, as well. When she is coordinating her wedding and deciding on colors, flowers, and ambience of her wedding, someone will be there to assist her.  The wedding consultants at Rose Tuxedo are experienced and gracious.  They will also attend to the details of a graduation party or a Quinceanera.

Isn’t it nice to know that in our somewhat chaotic world, there is a place where others care and genuinely want to help?  That place is Rose Tuxedo.  All you Gilbert folks need to remember to go to Rose Tuxedo if you have a celebration coming up.  Meet the staff, and see for yourself that, as far as Rose Tuxedo is concerned, the customer comes first.
