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!

Tuxedo Styles for Wedding

Tags : 

Tuxedo Styles

tuxedo bride and groomHere’s the thing about tuxedos.  In this day and time, as we have told you before, the old rules do not necessarily apply.  You can accentuate your personal style in many ways.  Now, by that we do not mean being sloppy, figuratively or literally.  If you’re going to make it your own, do it with some style, some coolness factor, and some elegance.

So, you’ve gotten an invitation for a wedding in June.  This will probably not be the last invitation you get either.  You might be going as a guest; you might be a groomsman; or, hey, you may be the groom, but we’re probably not talking to you right now, because the bride has already told you what you will be wearing, and that really goes for the groomsmen, as well.

This is going to be the time when you can pull out all the stops and have fun while looking sharp as heck.  What you are going for is the most stylish, celebratory, and handsome version of yourself you can accomplish.  The least casual you can go is a suit (dressy or casual, depending on the venue), and otherwise a tuxedo.  All the clothes we are going to suggest will work, but be sure to look carefully at the “attire specifications” on the invitation.

One look that we think is really happening is the shawl collar tuxedo.  But, here’s the thing, you could style it like a suit.  We know, sounds radical, but if it fits perfectly, and you choose the right accessories, it could be right on.  Try a colorful bow tie, suede shoes, and for that Big Apple look, suede shoes with no socks.  We know, your mom just fainted.

One of the easiest ways to make your tux come alive is to leave the white shirt on the hanger and go for a brightly colored shirt.  Think powder blue, pink, gray, or tan.  And, yes, you can always know that polished, black lace-ups are a perfect match for a tuxedo.  But, who said everything had to be a perfect match?  The big city boys are wearing suede slipper loafers in different colors, and the look is hot.  Then you can pair them with your fancy jeans after the occasion.

Hold onto your hats, because this next suggestion is going to knock your socks off, if you are wearing any.   Charcoal gray and dark blue are good suit colors, but just the right plaid suit could also make a very good statement.  It’s young; it’s daring; it’s fun.  Pair it with a different patterned tie and pocket handkerchief!

More and more men are wearing khaki suits to weddings, and that’s a good choice.  You can be dressed up and cool as a cucumber, all at the same time.  Boat shoes, a pocket square and a patterned bow tie will pull it all together.

Guess what?  You do not have to go to one of those stuffy, corny big box stores, like Men’s Warehouse.  Rose Tuxedo in Phoenix can take care of all of this for you.  Their prices will always be below the big box’s price.  Call or come in, they are waiting to help you, and they know all about these cool new looks.

Summer Tuxedo: 4 Options by Rose Tuxedo

Tags : 

Summer Tuxedo

You young ones probably don’t remember this tune, but Frank Sinatra (you probably don’t know him either) 🙂 sang it in 1955.  Look it up, it’s pretty corny. But we digress.  What we are really here to do is assist you in learning all you need to know about gettsummer tuxedoing ready for the upcoming nuptials (yours, or someone else’s). Here’s something else you might want to look up. Where did the word nuptials come from?  It’s from the Latin for marry. But, again, we digress.  Here’s what you need to know about nuptial ceremonial dress.

The picture to the left is a picture of the bride and her groom, who happens to be wearing a Rose Tuxedo summer tuxedo.  You might be wondering what it is that is different about a summer tuxedo? Obviously, Arizona summers tend to be, well,hot. Temperatures dictate which weight or appropriately colored tuxedo is a good choice, since both help alleviate a bit of the intensity of the high temperatures.  Here are four options, which Rose Tuxedo can supply, that are going to look good on you and feel good in warm temperatures.

image_18_large1.  If the wedding is going to take place in a church, temple, or cathedral, that means you are probably going to need the traditional get-up.  That would mean suit or tuxedo in black or midnight blue; a white dress shirt; a black bow tie; a cummerbund, and black dress shoes.  Interestingly, it is not so much the weight of the fabric in a tux that makes it cooler, it is the weave. Loosely woven fabric is cooler because it allows for air circulation. Summer tuxedos, in order to be cooler, need to be about an 8 oz. twill, or an 8 oz. tropical material.

Tux812.  Let’s say you are going to a cutting edge wedding at a lovely wedding hall.  The invitation might say “black tie optional”.  That usually means that the groom will be wearing black tie, but he expects you to at least wear a tux. A single-breasted  basic tux with a tie will just the ticket for a night like this.  This one is going to make you look a little Daniel Craig-ish, which the gals will love.

image_15_large3. If you’re going to an outside wedding, or a poolside wedding, or even (lucky you) a destination wedding, the invitation might say “semi-formal”.  This means you can wear a handsome suit, and in Arizona or Belize, it can be tan in color.  Add a silk tie, a pocket handkerchief,and boat shoes or sandals, and watch the girls stare.

Tux914. For a breezy summer night, a dark suit is a great way to go.  You can pair it with a solid tie, casual cufflinks, a white linen shirt, and brown or black Oxfords.  Nothing looks better than a well-fitted suit, and not much can make you feel as handsome as you will in this combination.

Understand that we have given you suggestions.  In these days of casual and individual dress codes, you can often make your attire fit your personality.  Just be sure that you like the way you look, because you are going to look good after you go to Rose Tuxedo Arizona.

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.

10 Reasons for Renting your Tux at Rose Tuxedo

Maybe you think it really doesn’t matter where you rent your tuxedo.  You have many choices so you probably don’t worry about it too much.  When you do need a tuxedo, you might think that throwing a dart at the yellow pages will be a good way to choose your tux rental establishment.  Believe us when we say, that is not a good way to choose.

Let us explain:

10 Reasons for Renting your Tux at Rose Tuxedo

1. If you choose a local tuxedo specialty shop, like Rose Tuxedo, for example, you will be able to choose the latest styles and colors for  your tux, formal wear, vests, ties, and bow ties.

2. If any of your groomsmen or friends live out of state, the measurements that are taken at an out-of-state shop may not be completely accurate.  A tuxedo rental specialty shop will have back-up suits and tuxedos and will be able to make on-the-spot changes and alterations quickly, and, usually, with no “rush fee”.  In these types of shops there are on-site professional tailors.

3.  If you decide to rent your tux from a bridal shop, you need to know that they usually get their tuxes from a wholesale catalog.  What this means is that they do not own the tuxes, and the tuxes will probably come from out-of-state.  This can create problems with fitting, added fees, and the return policy.  Bridal shops have to get their tuxedos back fast so that they can clean it and mail it back in short order and the tux’s usually don’t until a day before the event-scary.

4.  Mobile tuxedo rental companies have many of the same problems that are found when renting from a bridal shop.  There inventory is in another state.  There is no tailor available to alter and fit your tux for the special event.  After you pay or make a deposit, there is no brick and mortar shop where you can go to make sure that get what you wanted.  There is no press machine to make sure your tux is crisp and looks sharp for the occasion.

5.  If you rent from a mobile tuxedo rental, you are not going to be given any lowered prices or great promotions, and it’s possible your tux will not arrive in time. Things may workout great and no problems but you never know, big gamble for a big day.

6.  Rose Tuxedo Arizona has three convenient locations.  They are easy to get to and the staff is serious about their customer service.  That is why their business has been so successful over the last 30 years.

7.  Measuring to fit a suit or tuxedo is not an exact science.  Even Rose Tuxedo with warehouses full of formal wear, onsite  tailors, and friendships with other tuxedo stores who will often work collaboratively with Rose, there can still be problems.  Needless to say, if that is the case, wouldn’t you rather be working with Rose than anyone else.  Rose will find a way to make it all happen.

8.  And then, there is Men’s Wearhouse.  All of their inventory comes from a big plant in Houston, Texas.  With this company, you have machines, conveyor belts, and lasers shipping suits out to other states.  Wouldn’t you rather have a face that you can look at; a person who will make sure you get what you need?

9.  The high overhead of the big box stores is going to increase the amount of money you pay for a rental from Men’s Wearhouse, and other big corporations like them.  Pay less and get personal service from Rose Tuxedo Arizona.  For over ten years, Rose has assisted men who rented their tux from MW.  When they got the tux, it didn’t fit and they couldn’t get another one in time.  Rose stepped in.

10.  When you shop locally, you are not just helping the business where you shop.  You are also helping the local economy.  When the local economy is in good condition, everyone can rent more tuxedos.  Get the point?
