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!

Embrace Fall With Suits

Tags : 

It’s been officially Fall for a few days now, and styles for you gentlemen will be changing rapidly. This week we’ll discuss some tips for dressing for the season and some new trends popping up in men’s suits.

Things that never change:

  1. Suits (that fit) will always look great.
  2. Slim fit, two-buttoned suits are always in.
  3. Don’t be afraid to try new things.

What to expect this season:

The one-button suit is becoming somewhat popular again. Collars are beginning to follow the peaking fashion while getting bigger with new textures breaking through. Suit-wearers are looking for staying warm and looking great, so tweed, wool, and cashmere are coming back to keep gentlemen comfortable. These re-emerging fabrics lead to increased texture which can add thickness and detail for an intriguing look.

                Despite the added bulk of suits, shirts, and pants, suits for fall are expected to be slim fitting but are likely to lean towards vintage cuts. These slim and vintage cuts will come close to the body so the added bulk of material does not have our men looking heavy and uncomfortable—movement is key. A slim fit may sound scary, but when tailored correctly you’ll look like a million bucks! Step out of your comfort zone a little and try something new (you can always opt to rent a suit before you buy one).The third piece of the adored three-piece-suit may make a comeback this fall, added warmth and a change-up of style.

Colors will be changing slightly. Showing up in bright floral colors will be replaced with darker hues and more colors resembling the changing leaves. The earth is changing, and so is a gentleman’s expected attire. Bold patterns with floral accents will not be shunned, but solid colors will make a clearer statement. The subtle switch from stripes to solids may make change your fall look drastically. Don’t show up to a Fall wedding in Summer colors; look like the classy man you are and trade that powder blue in for a brown or orange or some green. In a few months the trees will be renewed with fresh green leaves and you can bring back your bright colors but for now, take some notes from nature.

As a reminder, Rose Tuxedo is here for all of your suit and tuxedo rentals (and purchases). Our amazing associates will help you pick out the right color, fit, and style for your next big shindig or your brother’s wedding. Rent a tuxedo for that random event or start adding stylish pieces to your wardrobe you can wear year after year. Women’s fashion tends to change every season and there are few repeats between last fall and this fall, but lucky for you men, you can always invest in the classics and still look trendy, classy, and handsome.

How to Get the Most Out of a Suit

Tags : 

After a little research, anyone can figure out when it’s appropriate or expected to wear either a suit or a tuxedo. Many, however, do not fully comprehend the usefulness of a complete tuxedo or suit within a wardrobe. For example, one three-piece suit in a basic color (Black or charcoal gray for example) can be used in at least six different ways, such as:

  1. All 3 pieces: This is a strong, bold look, especially when paired with attention grabbing colors like reds or burgundy. The tie and pocket square should match, or at the very least be of similar shades. Black leather belt and shoes in great condition, accompanied by a black leather briefcase or a style of bag make great additions. Maybe even add a watch with black leather, or metallic for an extra-noticeable statement.
  2. Two (main) pieces: Wearing the jacket and pants (accompanied with a long tie and collared shirt) is timeless. It makes a less bold statement than the three-piece variety, but it still commands respect and attention when all pieces fit properly with matching accessories. Accessories can be colorful, while others prefer a black-and-white look head-to-toe.
  3. Vest and pants: This look is classy, stylish, and vastly under-used. The vest or waistcoat should fit closer to the body than the jacket, so it may need extra tailoring or close attention to the adjuster in the back(especially when worn sans jacket). This look has a tendency to make a man look slimmer. One possible downside to this look is the attention which must be paid to the shirt. Color, cut, and condition must all be noted, and all accessories must compliment the shirt and vest. When in doubt, white shirt with black suit-pieces never fails. This look can be completed with bow ties (or long ties, but who doesn’t love a good bow tie?), a pocket watch chain, patterned socks, and leather shoes.
  4. Waistcoat without suit jacket or pants: This is one huge reason men should invest in a good three-piece suit. Throw on a dark wash jean, loafers or semi-dressy shoes, a semi-casual collared long sleeve shirt, and a tie can make any man look fantastic. This is great for those nights out on the town without looking over-dressed but reminding everyone how amazingly stylish you are. The glory of this idea is that comfortable jeans can be paired with any color or pattern of shirt (or tie), because a black vest will go with nearly anything. Dress it up, or dress it down, but always leave the bottom button unfastened.
  5. Jacket only, leave the slacks and vest behind: This look can be done in so many ways. A great fitting suit jacket can class up any outfit, even jeans and a t-shirt. Test out different materials for pants and add a nice pocket square or handkerchief for a dash of color and fun. No need for a tie and fancy watches or clips, leave it a little on the casual side and impress everyone around you.
  6. Pants only: A good pair of slacks can be worn with nearly anything. Take that jacket off and put a sweater or a sweater vest over that boring collared shirt and enjoy casual Friday at the office! Throw in your brown loafers if you feel a little crazy—just be sure to pair something else with brown tones in to bring the entire outfit together. Have fun with colors and patterns and materials. Who said wearing slacks is boring?

There’s no reason not to own a three-piece suit. If you don’t believe us, come by and rent one for a few days and play around with the other elements in your closet. Once you realize how amazing you look and how great everyone else thinks you look, you’ll come back begging for us to help you pick out at least one three-piece suit of your own!

Ladies! How To Convince Him To Wear a Tux or Suit!

Tags : 

How many women have tried to get their men to dress appropriately to an event only for them to whine long enough to force you to let them wear their slacks and ill-fitted sports coat? Men can be very stubborn, we all know this. Today we’ll discuss how to get your man to wear something proper.

  1. If he cares about you, he’ll do anything for you. Let him know how much it would mean to you for him to wear a suit or tux (depending on the event). Don’t get pushy or whiney, but be confident in your decision. Tell him how handsome he’ll look and that you wouldn’t mind a little arm candy at your sister’s wedding. A little ego-stroking can go a long way.
  2. Be subtle. If you blatantly tell him that his current suit doesn’t fit or isn’t appropriate for the event there’s a chance he’ll just get mad or defensive or he’ll just get generally hurt. Let him know how great he’d look in something different. “You’d look great in this suit,” is more effective than “you can’t wear the suit from your high school graduation, you’re 30.”
  3. Don’t be pushy. When he’s eventually trying on proper attire, let him know what looks good. When he’s trying things on, don’t be afraid to let him try on something you didn’t pick out. He may know his physically attractive traits better than you think and he may surprise you by picking out the best suit in the place. While he is probably perfectly capable of picking out a good suit (especially with help from the associates in the store) he will appreciate your help, honesty, and compliments. Try on different things, but don’t force 12 different suit-jackets on him in the dressing room.
  4. Give in a little.If you want him to wear a tuxedo but he honestly doesn’t care for them, it won’t be the end of the world to let him pick out a wonderful suit. If he doesn’t want to wear a bow tie, you won’t burst into flames if he picks out a matching neck tie. If he truly doesn’t want his shirt or tie to match your shoes and sash, maybe decide on a classic black/white combo or something that compliments your attire.
  5. Don’t be afraid of getting it tailored. Many rental places will help create a custom-fit for a suit or tux and anything you purchase can be altered as much as you want. Every man is built differently so if there’s something that doesn’t quite fit perfectly, it can be easily fixed. If the funds are available, take your man to a tailor to ask about custom-made pieces. He will feel like a million bucks because the piece or entire outfit is literally made for him, and who doesn’t like feeling special?
  6. Baby steps. If it’s his first time dressing in such attire, don’t throw him in the deep end. Start small. If you don’t need the entire outfit immediately, start with trying on a couple different outfits or maybe even piece-by-piece over a period of time. Don’t be afraid to let him explore on his own.
  7. He is not a child. He is a grown man who should be able to figure out what looks best on him. Chances are, he was reluctant because he doesn’t want to spend money or he doesn’t realize how big of a deal the event is. Let him know respectfully your thoughts on the matter and he should realize how important said attire is and be eager to please and look his best, no matter the cost.

If money is an issue, rent the tux. If money isn’t an issue, rent the tux. Renting a tuxedo or suit is never a bad idea. Rose Tuxedo offers too many styles to count and if you like what you rent, you can buy it (or at least something close, and definitely something you can get tailored). Contact us today for the best suits and tuxedos for weddings, proms, parties, and more.

Tuxedo Vs. Suit: What Should I Wear?

Tags : 

So many people are not aware of the actual differences between a suit and a tuxedo. To some, the difference is involving colors, occasions for which it’s worn, or accessories. While those differentiations are involved, they are not the determining factor. The biggest determiner is the material. A tux will feature satin accents found in the lapel, trouser sides, buttons, and pocket trims, with a jacket sometimes made of silk. These accents really make the entire outfit pop—they grab the attention. Tuxedos also often feature bow ties, cuff links, and cummerbunds or low cut waist coats. Tuxedos are traditionally primarily black (with black accessories and accents) but can be made and found in different colors including semi-popular shades of gray. Unlike suits, the button-down shirts worn with tuxedos usually feature a pleated front and it is most acceptable to wear patent leather shoes. Tuxedos are usually worn by a groom and often the bridal party but can also be found at proms and high profile events like award ceremonies and charity events. They are worn to make a statement, often one implying pride in one’s appearance and being of importance in the event. As amazing as nearly any man looks in a tux, they are not appropriate everywhere. When a tuxedo is not to be worn, a suit is your new best friend to help you look your best.

Everyone knows about suits. While the difference between suits and tuxedos eludes some, most people consider suits to be the catch-all for formal attire. Suits are best worn for semi-formal events, jobs, and more. Suits can feature a bow tie, but are more traditionally worn with a necktie. Common collared shirts are worn with suits, no special pleating needed. The designs, cuts, and material van vary and they usually come in two or three pieces (the third being any type of vest or waist coat). The jackets come in either one or two-breasted, meaning one or two rows of buttons. Both styles look different depending on body type—to don’t be afraid to try both on. Buttons can be made of different materials, including plastic, metal, wood, and more. Unlike the lapels in tuxedos, the lapels in suits tend to match the material from the rest of the suit and the most common colors/patterns are: black, dark gray, navy blue, brown, and pinstripe. Other colors can be found or made, but are uncommon. Suit trousers may be cuffed, and will usually have belt loops for a thin dress belt. As for shoes, suits allow for more styles of sensibly chosen situation appropriate shoes including Oxfords, derbies, or any other style of dress shoes. Most suits are work for formal events (like a wedding or party guest) where the wearer is not the center of attention or for semi-formal events where the wearer wishes to have more attention drawn. Suits can and do look very polished, well put together, and professional.

Overall, investing in a couple good suits is never a bad idea, but save the tuxedos for special events—there’s no point in buying a tuxedo for your wedding and passing it off as work attire. Leave the tuxedos for the big events. If you don’t want to buy one, contact Rose Tuxedo for rental questions. Similarly, if you want to wear a suit but have no need of buying one or just want to try something new, we’ve got you covered there, too. Contact us today so you can look your best tomorrow. Just clear it with the Missus first—you don’t need to be over-dressed or underdressed.
