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-tuxedos-logo

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

Consider going for Thanksgiving in this Garment

Tags : 

Thanksgiving Garment

We all know the stories about the First Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims and we all recognize the attire worn by those early settlers like the Pilgrims. Today we’ll look at just how far fashion has come and been thankful no one (hopefully) shows up to Thanksgiving dinner dressed like this guy (see Left).

Traditional Thanksgiving Garment

Traditional Thanksgiving Garment

To start with, a Pilgrim man often wore a felt hat (with a buckle in some interpretations). The next easily noticeable accouterments is the Ruff. It looks much like the variations of ruffles and large white collars worn throughout history, mostly in paintings of royalty. This would get covered I gravy so fast, it wouldn’t be funny (OK, it would be) if worn today. Slightly less awkward and odd is the doublet cuffs. This is a fairly typical jacket of the time (also for quite some time before and after the Pilgrims) and it could be compared to a waistcoat or suit jacket. Some pilgrims also wore a vest and a long sleeved shirt if not the doublet. Further down the body, we find the Breeches, garters, stocking, and shoes. These breeches look silly by today’s standards but they obviously looked good to the Pilgrim women. While there are few comparisons between this style of pants and today’s modern suit pants, at least the color of the pants and jackets matched (with the shoes, too!), making the men look well put together. Today, men wear solid color jackets, shoes, and pants to the actual ankle, leaving the stockings to the women.

Suit and Tuxedo history…

While the history of the suit and tuxedo is long and convoluted, we can still see some similarities to the traditional pilgrim garb. Wearing a suit to Thanksgiving dinner will make you look and feel good, but it can also be a history lesson. Impress the friends and family (and in-laws) by comparing your suit pieces to the good ol’ fashioned Pilgrim attire.

Consider going in the traditional Native American Thanksgiving Suit this year

If you don’t want to go the suit route (because gravy on your best suit, tie, or shirt is a definite no-go) then consider dressing closer to a traditional Native American the Pilgrims may have contacted (see Right). Replace the deerskin mantle with a suede shirt or jacket and the deerskin leggings with jeans or corduroy. Also, tie a piece of twine around your leg for the legging tie. You can also pick up a pair of moccasins at any number of shoe stores. As with a shell or leather necklace. Don’t forget a nice turkey feather accessory to keep it extra festive! If you must have some sort of fur robe for maximum authenticity, shop around for just any faux fur scraps. As for the knife, make it functional and bring your own turkey carving knife—festive and functional!

We’ve got you covered

No matter what you choose, keep Rose Tuxedo in mind for all of your holiday attire needs. There isn’t a man alive who doesn’t look better in a high quality, well-fitting suit.

4 Occasions When You Want to Rent a Tux

Tags : 

Who doesn’t want to look good? Which person 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 tux 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.

Tux Rental

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.

Good looking tux

We understand your need to look outstanding like the Front line 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.

1. 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?).

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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 professional 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. How about a Western Tux for a Rustic Wedding in Arizona? Yep, we got one.

Cómo y cuándo vestir Tuxedos de color blanco

En la actualidad existen infinidad de estilos y de colores de Tuxedos para hombres, pero desde Rose Tuxedo hoy les hablaremos sobre un color que, seguramente es uno de los más difíciles de utilizar de cuantos se tienen a disposición. ¿Y por qué decimos que es difícil? Pues porque mayormente es utilizado en estaciones como el verano y el otoño, por el cuidado que requiere para que mantenga su color y limpieza y por la exigencia de saber cómo combinarlo para que cause el efecto correcto. Pero hablemos mejor de sus principales ventajas, y es que su uso diferenciará –absolutamente- y aportará una frescura -en varios sentidos y no podemos tener mejores razones que esas para tenerlo en cuenta y dedicarle un post.

¿En que época usar este tipo de Tuxedos?

Pues ya hemos dicho al comienzo del post que mayormente se utiliza en verano y otoño. El color blanco y los materiales con los que usualmente están hechos (lino o algún material que no sea grueso), dan un toque de frescura exclusivo. También porque uno de los estilos para usarlo y que hoy se lleva mucho, es desenfadado y esto ayuda a combinar cualquier look con éxito, especialmente en estas épocas.

¿En que ocasión?

Las ocasiones más apropiadas para usarlos serian en aquellas que se realicen al aire libre ya que está más relacionado con el ocio y la diversión; como para fiestas y acontecimientos en el medio rural o marino y, aunque este color casi siempre está reservado para la novia, no es ningún pecado que lo usen los novios o los testigos también, especialmente cuando la ceremonia se realice en exteriores.

Posibles combinaciones

Es un color que se debe llevar de forma muy sencilla y buscando un equilibrio. Si quisieras encontrarlo en Rose Tuxedo Phoenix AZ no tendrías ningún problema pues en nuestros servicios siempre te aconsejaremos sobre este aspecto, pero, desde ya te contamos que no conviene recargarlo con otros colores y no es nada recomendable combinarlo con cadenas o accesorios dorados o llamativos pues no querrás llevarlo al estilo mafioso. Siempre es mejor optar por blancos rotos, blancos crema o incluso marrones claros, darán un toque más refinado al look y al mismo tiempo seguirá aportando la frescura característica. Algunas opciones pueden ser:

tuxedo shirts colored

tux shirt colors

  • Camisa blanca o alguna con detalles muy sencillos como rallas bien finas en otro color bien claro como azul marino. Descartar por completo colores que hagan algún contraste fuerte, no es lo más correcto.
  • En cuanto a la corbata y al pañuelo tendrás que ser muy cuidadoso si escogiste una camisa blanca pues es uno de los pocos detalles que se recomiendan llevarlos en contraste y este te pueden proporcionar un toque realmente elegante, si es lo que estás buscando. No se recomiendan en este caso blancos o muy claros.
  • Los calcetines se pueden usar blanco, el mismo color del traje.
  • Los zapatos no son recomendables llevarlo de color blanco, pero sí apostamos por colores claros como color miel o marrón. Además, como se le puede considerar un traje un poco informal esto nos da posibilidades de usar algunos zapatos también informales como algún tipo de mocasín, por ejemplo, de color azul y no sería tan grande, el traspié.

Para finalizar queremos resaltar desde Rose Tuxedo Phoenix AZ que, si bien podemos decir que el negro es un color para llevar a cualquier situación sumamente formal, el blanco es mucho más flexible y perfectamente puede ser ese look que estás buscando para alguna ceremonia o acontecimiento en el verano o el otoño que se aproxima ?. 602 957-0089 15 different color tuxedo shirts, tuxedo color shirts.
