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.

Types of School Dances

Tags : 

Going to dances is a big part of the social aspect of school. From middle school dances to Senior prom, most students love going to dances to socialize, get out of the house, and potentially get with the crush they’ve obsessed over for months. It’s also a great excuse to ask a crush out on a date! Some schools have special dances based on their traditions, but there are a few basic dances with general dress-code expectations. Don’t let yourself (or your young students) stand out in the worst way by not wearing the appropriate attire and use this as a guide to help decide when to get your young men fitted for a suit.

Homecoming: This is often the first dance of the new school year and correlated to the first big football game of the season. These dances are often formal or semiformal. Schools can set the dress code how they want, but anything from slacks and a polo shirt to a full suit may be required. When in doubt, over-dress. If your son wants to go to Homecoming and doesn’t know the dress code, he’ll impress his date regardless of dress code by showing up in a well-fitting suit.

Winter Formal: This dance goes by many names (including Snow Ball) and takes place between 2 of the biggest dances for most schools: prom and homecoming. Dress codes for this type of dance usually encourage a suit and tie. Boys are expected to wear a solid color button-down shirt with slacks, black jeans, or khakis, and often a suit jacket or a nice sweater or blazer. It’s best to wear shoes that compliment the outfit—so it’s best to avoid sneakers (especially dirty ones).

Sadie Hawkins: This commonly referenced dance type traditionally requires girls to ask boys to the dance since it’s often expected of boys to initiate invitations to dances. This is a good chance to help girls gain the confidence to ask out boys (which should never be looked down upon). Like many other dances, dress codes are determined by the school. This dance is often much less formal than homecoming or other events. Semi-formal (leaning more towards informal) is very common and sometimes a theme is applied, or humorous dress codes are encouraged. Some schools run with the hillbilly theme for this dance.

Spring Fling: Made popular by the movie Mean Girls, Spring Fling dances are sometimes student-organized and thrown for underclassmen. Students may strive for more Spring inspired looks by wearing pastels, bright colors, or floral prints. Again, dress code can be determined by the school but guys are safe with button-down shirts, slacks or khakis, and some sort of jacket or sweater, but depending on the weather and temperatures a jacket or sweater may be wise to ignore.

Prom: Prom is the closest thing to a wedding most of these high school girls will experience for up to a decade. Girls dream of their prom night like they do their wedding. This is a dance where a tuxedo isn’t overdoing it, and a full suit is borderline required. Despite the theme of the specific prom, it’s likely that he boy will be expected to wear a nice suit, possibly with a shirt or tie matching the dress of his date. Plan ahead to ensure your guy is able to get his suit or tux in advance to ensure the right fit, color, style, and more. Some rental places may have trouble keeping suits and tuxedos in stock—but not Rose Tuxedo. Start planning for Prom now if you want but we may still be able to help right before Prom.

Other: Some schools over dances for holidays like Valentine’s Day, ends of the semester, and various types of informal dances. Many of these types do not have a dress code beyond the dress code of daily life at the school. These smaller dances do not require suits very often and your boys should be fine in nice jeans or khakis. But, if they want to impress their dates and stand out, by all means let them wear a suit.

What You’re Saying With Your Winter Formal Outfit

Tags : 

Guys, Winter Formal may be coming up at your High School (or College, whatever) so be prepared to look your best and impress all of the ladies—or be prepared to look like a fool if you don’t rent your suit or tux from Rose Tuxedo to look the best you can for this big dance.

  1. Full Tuxedo: Assuming it actually fits (like it will when renting from us), you’ll look like a super spy, celebrity, or just darn good. However, if you’re the only one at the dance in a tuxedo, you may look out of place—but at least you’ll look great. Avoid doing this if you’re going stag or with a group.
  2. Three Piece Suit: This shows that you understand fashion and you spent a little extra money for that third piece. It allows you to remove the coat while still looking extra-awesome. Some may view it as “trying too hard,” but your date won’t think so.
  3. Two-Piece Suit: Simple. Basic. Classic. You can’t go wrong here. Match your tie or shirt to your date’s dress and you’re a power couple.
  4. Suit that is too small: This looks like you bought a suit Freshman year and you’ve had a growth spurt. Don’t wear this. If you can’t move or breathe, or the world can see your elbows and calves, it’s time to donate it to a little brother or cousin.
  5. Suit that is too big: Hand-me-downs are a great way to save money, but not at the expense of looking like a little boy playing in his dad’s closet. Get it altered or save it for when you grow into it.
  6. Slacks and a dress shirt: This is great for a casual look (as long as all pieces fit, preferably with a tie added and nice dress shoes) but it also doesn’t look like you tried. If you want to impress the ladies, you better have some great dance moves if you show up like this.
  7. Slacks and a suit vest: This is a great alternative to the three piece (or even traditional 2-piece) suit. You may come off as a bit of a hipster, but you may also come off as suave and interesting. You’ll stand out, but you may get a little chilly—keep that suit jacket handy.
  8. Jeans and a dress shirt: You really look like you’re not trying. Or, like you’re trying too hard to not be trying hard—if that makes sense. This isn’t a middle school dance, class it up a bit, bro.
  9. Anything that doesn’t involve a dress shirt or slacks: Just don’t. You’ll look like you don’t care and it’ll be more impressive if you skip the dance altogether and go for a “I’m so over school dances,” attitude.

When you’ve got your date picked and she has her dress colors ready, coordinate and rent your suit, tux, or other options with Rose Tuxedo. Our prices can fit any budget and we’ll make you look (and feel) like a million bucks for the Winter Formal. Start planning now, guys! The ladies will appreciate an early invitation.

Why Choose Rose Tuxedo?

Tags : 

Rose Tuxedo

Rose TuxedoWhat are some of the things that make Rose Tuxedo of Arizona different from other places that rent tuxedos, suits and accessories?  There are many things that make Rose Tuxedo your tuxedo rental experts:

1.  Rose Tuxedo is family-owned and operated.  Do you know why patronizing a local store is better than going to a big national chain?  For one thing, it keeps your money in the community rather than sending it off to a corporate headquarters, that might even be in a different country.  Local businesses keep the community connected, and and a community business knows what their community needs.

2.  Rose Tuxedo has their inventory of tuxes, suits, and accessories in their own warehouses.  There is no shipping costs or waiting for a shipment to arrive.  This is important when you need your formal wear quickly or when you have an emergency  “costume malfunction”.

3.  You can actually order your tuxedo online.  Or, if you have questions or need help with your formalwear in any way, go to:  service@rosetuxedoaz.com

4.  One of Rose Tuxedo’s favorite sayings is, “When it has to be perfect…”.  Well, that’s exactly what they mean. Now, everyone knows there is no such thing as perfection, but if any business can come close to the bullseye, it’s Rose Tuxedo.  They are willing to go the extra mile to be sure that you get what you want, when you want it, and for the price that you can afford.

5.  That’s why another saying that is popular at Rose Tuxedo is, “You’re going to love the way you save”.  Some of the big box stores say,”You’re going to love the way you look”.  Well, that goes without saying, right?  At Rose, you are going to have both.  You will look sharp and fashionable, and you are going to save money.

6.  Rose Tuxedo is rated on Wedding Wire and was voted locally  Best Place to Rent a Prom or Wedding Tuxedo, three years in a row from the Readers’ Choice Awards.  Rose Tux was also voted Arizona Bride’s “Best of 2013 – Favorite Local Vendor for Grooms Tux, Prom Tux, and Wedding Tux.  Not too shabby, right?

7.  Rose Tuxedo can guarantee you that when you rent from them you are going to save, in the neighborhood of $50, when compared to some of the big national chain stores.

8.  If you are looking for a size that you are worried you won’t be able to find, call Rose Tuxedo, Arizona.  They have sizes that range from a boy’s size 3 to a man’s size 74 reg.  You can see that they will certainly be able to fit you and your friends and family.

9.  One more thing that is good about doing your rentals from a local business, especially one like Rose Tuxedo, which has been in these parts for about 30 years, is that the staff and family at Rose know what Arizona prom wear should be; what wedding attire is most often used, and what wedding wear is worn in each season for customers who live in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.  In other words, they know their customers.

10.  And, the last reason to use Rose Tuxedo is that they have three convenient locations which are easy to access for all the folks who live in and around Phoenix.  Since they have made it so easy for you, why not give them a call or visit this weekend and tell them what you are going to need for that upcoming wedding, party, or graduation?  They will have you fixed up in no time.

The Best Time of your Life

Tuxedo Styles

For those who went to prom and had a good time here at the end of your Senior year, can you believe it, you are almost out of high school. For those that still have prom coming up, it’s never too late to rent a tuxedo at a great price from a Local Tuxedo Specialist.  Here are a few suggestions.  Gray tuxedos are still very popular, right along with white tuxedos.  The tw0-button black tuxedos are still the number one rental however, along with bow ties, which remain more popular than neckties.  This year it seems that fitted tuxedo coats and pants have been more often requested.  For you guys who think matching your dates dress is weird, it is still the trend and probably will remain a trend until your 5 year-old brother is renting a tux for his prom.

How about Senior Ditch Day? What a way to say, “Goodbye, school” and reward yourself for making it to the finish line. Now it’s time to move on.  Some groups of Seniors like to go to the lake or tube down the river, and others just like to enjoy the day at a friend’s  house hanging out by the swimming pool.   Some students even go to school and the teachers always give them a special break-time for showing up.  Whatever you choose to do, be safe and have fun,  because you earned it.

Graduation Day is yet another milestone in your life and there is nothing like walking for your diploma to seal the deal.  Don’t skip this one.  The feeling you get is fantastic.  Also, you need to walk so that, after the Cap and Gown, you can join your friends at a party, or for a meal.  And, since you are on a roll, you might just want to look sharp for these activities, also. You know what we say, When you Look Sharp, You’re Going to Feel Sharp!  Your Local Tuxedo Rental Shop carries more than just formal wear.  We have classy suits, beautifully pressed shirts, handsome ties, and good-looking dress pants.  But, really, however you show up, remember to be happy and proud because graduation from high school is a one-time deal and quite an accomplishment.  Most of all, this is one of the most enjoyable times of your life.  Maybe you’re going to college.  Maybe you’re going to work.  But, as Charlie Sheen said in the movie, Wall Street  (1987), “Life all comes down to a few moments. This is one of them.”
