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.

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 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

Men’s Suits and Tuxedos: To Buy or To Rent?

Tags : 

Who doesn’t want to look good? Who doesn’t want to give a good first impression? Who doesn’t want to impress his date? The questions could go on and on. And yes, a tuxedo or suit can transform any man to look his best.

A tuxedo or suit is always in fashion. They’ve been around for many years and they don’t seem to be making an exit. Every decade they undergo changes, upgrades or throwbacks but they remain the same: Suits and tuxedos.

Different types and quality of tuxedos and suits exists out there. As a result, they come with different price tags. Some are affordable, others are just oh-my-God expensive. Makes you wonder if they were crafted by the hands of angels. But the funny thing is just anyone can wear those tuxes. Rose tuxedos are one of those making that possible. However, we have been doing that for a long time and also do it best, with extra spices here and there to make any one look all-round dapper.

We understand your need to look outstanding like the Frontline commando of the army of dapper men in suits. So we do our best to make a trainload of choices of tuxes and suits available to you. As opposed to buying them, we’ve put together a small but inexhaustible list of reasons why renting a tuxedo or suit is the way to go.

Job interviews: Rent a suit if you have an interview for a company that requires formal attire but you don’t want to spend the money for a whole suit until you have that cushy job or you just really want to impress them with how amazing you look in a suit (and be honest, who doesn’t look and feel amazing in a tuxedo or nice suit?).

Office parties: We all know what happens at the work Christmas party stays at the work Christmas party.  That is until the morning and you have to get your suit cleaned. Rent an extra snazzy suit or tux to impress your boss and by renting you won’t have to find closet space for it between big shindigs.

Hot date at a 5 star restaurant: If you are trying to impress a classy lady by taking her out to eat at the swankiest place in town, you have to dress the part. At Rose Tuxedo, we have accessories to match nearly any color, so you can match her dress, your car, or the color of the napkins in the restaurant.

Class reunions: No matter what clique or niche you fit into during school, a tuxedo rental from us will make you look like a million bucks! Make your ex-girlfriends regret leaving you for the football quarterback by looking like you stepped out of a James Bond movie.

Any time you just want to look fancy! Who says you need a special event to look nice? No one looks awful in a suit or tuxedo. Sure, it might be weird if you rent a tux just for laughs, but it’s none of our business why you rent from us. If you want some professi  onal head shots taken while you try out your skills in acting, who knows? Our tuxes might make you the next NPH.

By no means is this a comprehensive list of reasons to own, rent, or enjoy a suit. We stand by our products and wish you the best in your endeavors, because we’ll do our part by making you look the best you will ever look.

After you’ve made your tuxedo arrangements, you might want to know when to do your haircut. It matters a lot to completing your look.

Men’s tuxedo can transform your looks for the best

In this post, we are going to discuss something that’s quite a source of dilemma on the big day: When should you have your haircut? If you’re a guy getting ready for prom or your wedding night, congratulations! This is a giant moment in your life and you certainly want to look your best. This is why you’ve probably already booked your groom tux or prom tuxedo. However, the one thing that you might be unsure about is when you should get your hair cut leading up to the big day. Sure, you might have already asked your groomsman, but even he might not have a great answer for you. Here are some tips on how you should determine “when’s the best time to get your hair cut before the big day”, once you’ve already booked that prom or wedding tuxedo at Rose Tuxedo in Phoenix AZ or Mesa AZ.

Determine Your Cut Type – Cuts for men, contrary to popular belief, are similar to cuts for women in the sense that no two are alike. You should consider this when planning for when to get your hair cut in relation to your big day. If you do a simple, short style, then you should get your hair cut a few days leading up to the time you put on that rose tuxedo. If you rock a longer, shaggier style, then get your hair cut about two weeks leading up to your prom or wedding night.

Check Your Schedule – Any guy who’s going to prom or getting married is probably incredibly busy. In between getting fitted for your groom tux or prom tuxedo and making all of the necessary arrangements, you’re probably extremely pressed for time. This is why you should find a haircut time that fits in with your busy schedule.

Determine How Important Your Haircut Is – While a groom might need to ensure he gets his hair cut, a groomsman might not need to prioritize as much. If you are only a groomsman in your upcoming event, check with your stylist to determine whether or not you even really need a haircut in the weeks leading up to the big day. You might need one; however, your stylist might tell you that you’re good to go and don’t need to do anything else beyond the final fitting for your wedding tuxedo.

No matter what your big day consists of, you surely want to look your best. If you follow the above tips, you’re sure to look dapper on your big day. Whether you’re going to prom or getting married, be sure to enjoy your special evening. Check out our other blog posts here and enjoy amazing tips to keep on top of the fashion game.
