How to rock a Black Tie in Formal Wear

Tags : 

Dressing for a black tie event can be a pretty daunting task for anyone who has never had the experience in the past. But if you’re someone who is used to wearing a tuxedo, you can already start experimenting with other options compared to the simple black tuxedo-white shirt combination. Just like its name suggests, you will need to wear a black tie along with your tuxedo.

Black Tie

Here are some important things you have to remember about black tie events:

Black tie is not formal dress appropriate

Commonly, people assume that black tie dressing is already the highest standard of dressing for men. In the past, however, black tie events consisted of very relaxed evening attire. Despite this common knowledge, the highest form of evening wear for men is a ‘white tie’ dress code. In terms of dress code, black tie events call for semi-formal evening attire. On the other hand, white tie refers to a similar yet distinct set of clothing for men.

Daytime wear is not black tie…. and should never be worn!

Nowadays, there are a number of people who wear tuxedos during the daytime for a photo op or in tourist attractions. Sadly, they’re doing wrong to the solemnity of tuxedos since these should only be for evening wear. The rule in wearing a tuxedo is that you dress for the end time of an event. If you will be attending a ceremony that calls for a tuxedo yet starts in the afternoon, think about the time that it will end. If it ends after dark, then it is appropriate to wear a tuxedo.

However, if you receive an invitation for a black tie dress code for a morning wedding, be a good guest and don’t contradict it.

When you’re wearing a black tie tuxedo, you are exuding an appeal that is worthy of the respect of other people. This is why you should treat your tuxedo with care at all times and follow the rules to black tie dressing. If you need to rent a tuxedo, make sure you check out our collection for one that you may wear. You’ll find that this is a great way you can look dapper and sharp for the event you are attending. If you need a tux rental in 85029 area Rose Tuxedo has one for you and if you need a suit rental near 85308 or 85306 we have one waiting for you. Black tie is all we do.

Get Quinceañera Tuxedos at Rose Tuxedo

Tags : 

Quinceañera celebration marks the day a girl turns 15. On this day, the world stops for her. All eyes are on her and she is the princess of that day. Also called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, this is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Arizona communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.

Quinceañera Tuxedos

To a Quinceañera you don’t dress the same as you would to any other birthday party.  Girls typically wear colored dresses and the guy’s sport tuxedos with matching vest and tie.  Of course the father of the birthday girl usually wears a tuxedo and vest that matches the young woman’s Mothers gown. Pedrino’s, or an influential uncle, Grandfather or other man in the young woman’s life, typically dress in tuxedos as well.
Because so many men wear tuxedos to a Quinceañera and come from neighboring Phoenix cities like Glendale, Peoria, Avondale, Surprise and Tolleson, it’s easier to use a Formalwear Specialist with multiple locations to serve all the men and boys formal needs. (By the way, if you rent 15 or more tuxedos from us we will provide 3 rentals free.)

Need to schedule a consultation?  Stop by or call us and we’ll be sure to match you with the best tuxedo for an upcoming Quinceañera celebration.  Check out Arizona’s largest selection of Quinceañera Tuxedos and suits for rent. We specialize in only Tuxedo’s and Suits for all rental occasions, we carry every size tuxedo and suit for men and boys and you will never leave our shops unless you look and feel great. Our Tuxedo wear house is location in Central Phoenix and our inventory is huge. We buy the newest styles and color tuxedos and suits every year and we sell our used tuxedos to waiters and limo drivers and musicians and Dj’s and more.

Tuxedo Tips

Tags : 

tuxedo

When renting a tuxedo, most people look for the perfect fit but that is not the only aspect of the tuxedos that should affect your decision. If you are renting a tuxedo, chances are that it is for your wedding day and you should look perfect on the greatest day of your life. So, let’s make sure that you look your best on your wedding day, better than anyone else who is there:

The Neckwear

Many functions and weddings allow for any kind of neckwear whether it is a long black tie or a bow tie but for the most formal and perfect look you must wear a bow tie with a tuxedo. It could make you stand out from rest of the men at the wedding and that is your ultimate goal, to look better than everyone else. Another thing is a self-tied bow tie and it can hugely change your look, because the difference between a readymade bow tie and a self-tied bow tie is like night and day in terms of tuxedos.

Cuff Links and Studs

Tuxedo shirts can be fastened with studs and cuff links or with regular plastic buttons. Most of the people won’t even care to notice your special buttons but those who do, will leave with a great impression thinking that they attended the wedding of a very good and professional man as opposed to if you are wearing a shirt with regular button, they won’t think much of you. Studs and Cuff links also help in boosting the confidence of the person who is wearing them.

Pocket Square

Tux coats mostly have a pocket on the left side and the general rule is that if you have a pocket on the left side of the coat over the chest then there has to be a pocket square in the pocket. Many don’t care to put this in their tuxedos but still look good but the thing is that if you put a pocket square in your coat, you will look even better. There are several ways to fold it but the simplest one that still looks good is straight edge fold.

Shirt

Always wear a white shirt, this should be a rule but since it’s not, many people don’t pay attention to this step and end up wearing black or other colored shirts. Although black shirts do well for other formal events, they should be a no go territory for a wedding. The best masculine effect is achieved by white shirts and a black tux. Another thing to note here is the collar and the best shirt is the one which has a turn-down collar.

So, if you ever want to rent a tuxedo with all the above things, for any formal event, just give us a call here at Rose Tuxedo to get the best tuxedo for the price you pay. Call today for a free 20% off Wedding or Quiceanera quote. We won’t be undersold.

5 Celebrity Transformations: Suits Vs. Street Clothes

Tags : 

Robert Downey Jr.

downeyThere’s almost nothing that can make this man look bad. Even when he isn’t Iron Man, he’s still basically Tony Stark. Throw a suit on him and he could pass as a business professional, philanthropist, and lady killer. No suit and he still looks awesome, but he could just as easily be working out or working on someone’s car. While his suit selection is sometimes wild and unusual, the classic black and white or blue and white will always be a classic. Even in a suit he lets his personality shine through and doesn’t often take himself too seriously.

Usherusher

Here is another man that never looks bad. Some may say that Usher in a shirt and Usher in a suit are equally attractive, and most women would wholeheartedly agree. Not all of us look amazing shirtless, but most men do look great in a suit, and our friend Usher is proof of that. Jeans and a casual button-down shirt versus a suit shows a world of difference. The man can even look amazing with a bow-tie that hasn’t been tied. Proof that men can look smooth and fresh even while dancing in their best suit.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Kimmelkimmel and timberlake

We have a picture of both Timberlake and Jimmy Kimmel because lately, they seem to be an amazing pair. Between Timberlake’s music career and Kimmel’s talk show and comedy, they could continue to be a fantastic duo. These two men are handsome, funny, smart, and seem to be very down to earth guys who can laugh at themselves. Put them in street clothes and they could pass for old college buddies at a bar or reunion, but put them in suits and they look like a power house team that belongs on television. Maybe there’s a reason Jimmy Kimmel is usually seen in suits. Justin Timberlake, like some other men we’ve talked about today, almost never looks bad but in a suit you can tell he is no longer the little guy in N*Sync but he’s a grown man with grown stuff to do.

Ellen Degeneres

ellenThis funny lady is proof that anyone can pull off a suit, or at least some suit pieces. She’s often seen wearing more of a men’s style suit than the classic women’s “pant suit,” and it’s become somewhat of a signature look for the comedian. On her show she often wears sweaters, sweater vests, jeans, or a suit vest but some could argue a full suit looks amazing on her. Even with a pair of sneakers on the look is flawless. Maybe it’s the short hair and the thin body type, but Ellen is not the dress type, but she sure can turn heads when she gets dressed up for an award show or a photo shoot.

What we’re trying to say here is: you may not be a celebrity, but even celebrities look better in suits (or at least suit pieces) so come by Rose Tuxedo for all of your suit rental and purchase needs to start looking like the movie star or musician you want to be!

10 Costume Ideas with Suits and Tuxedos!

Tags : 

Halloween is fast approaching! We already discussed how to use a suit to look and feel like a super spy, but today we’ll throw out some ideas for a Halloween costume that will make you look amazing and be of a higher quality than those Costume-In-A-Bag rip offs! High quality and better fitting costume ideas are here with Rose Tuxedo Rentals!

    1. Super Heroes: Toss on a Superman shirt under your shirt and suit and unbutton the shirt just enough to let the logo shine through. Or, put on the suit and tell people you’re Batman when he’s not being Batman. It can also give you a good excuse to leave a conversation early by saying “My city needs me!” and showing your super hero shirt underneath and dashing away.
    2. Sterling Archer: The FX show Archer features a spy who sometimes doesn’t know what he’s doing but manages to be hilarious and successful anyway. Rent a black suit and tie and carry around a drink or flask at all times, slick back your hair, and you’re Archer.
  1. Slenderman: The hit horror video game features a faceless being in a black suit and tie. Simple and terrifying for those who have played the game!
  2. Barney Stinson: NPH in his classic suit attire on the hit show How I Met Your Mother is the perfect costume idea. Who doesn’t look amazing in a suit? Be a lady killer and be dressed up for Halloween at the same time.
  3. Office Zombie: Rent a basic, boring suit and pop on some zombie makeup and walk around like your leg is broken and you’ve got the perfect costume for the office party!
  4. Blues Brothers: Get your buddies together and rent matching suits and carry around guitar cases and live your dreams of being one of the infamous Blues Brothers, just don’t forget the hats and sunglasses.
  5. Men in Black: Speaking of sunglasses, fashion up one of those memory-erasing devices and get a classy suit and run around talking about aliens—even better if someone’s at the party dressed as some being from outer space!
  6. Anthropomorphized Penguin: Everyone says penguins look like they’re wearing a tuxedo. Use some face paint or get a mask and you will be the best dressed penguin at the whole party.
  7. Psy from Gangnam Style: Blue suit jacket with black trim and black slacks and you can run around doing the Gangnam Style dance and be the hit of the party. The song may not be going viral anymore, but bring that back!
  8. Steam Punk: Rent a three-piece suit or just the pants and vest and spruce it up with some Steam Punk gadgets (homemade or store bought) and pop some metal goggles on a top hat and watch the ladies swoon! This is done best with dark browns with leather and metal accents.
