Bridal Party

Match your groomsmen to the bridesmaids or have one side of the party in one color from the theme and the other half of the party in another. You can even try a multi-colored approach! Choose a few different colors and pair off groomsmen and bridesmaids for a rainbow effect or any combination of colors in the color spectrum. The only limit is your imagination!

Guests

Wearing a suit to a wedding is generally accepted. You can’t go wrong with a basic black-and-white ensemble for a wedding. Try a little pop of color for weddings in summer.

Rent vs. Purchase

Renting a tuxedo is always a great idea. Most people don’t have many occasions to wear a tux, so renting is a great option. You can buy a suit if you wish, but really, how often would you wear one? Renting from Rose Tuxedo is good for your wallet and your style.

A suit, however, can be worn for so many occasions and can be dressed up or down. If you’re a wedding guest and you have several to attend to this summer it may be cost effective to purchase a basic, classic suit and stock up on some colorful shirts, ties, and other accessories so you can attend even the nicest wedding at the last second. Dress it up with a vest or tone it down by losing the tie or leaving the coat at home.

Black tuxedo HOW TO GET THE RIGHT TUXEDO AND LOOK SHARP IN IT

TUXEDOBlack tuxedo every designer carries one, Calvin Klein, Jean Yves, Christine Dior, Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis, After Six, and Perrier Cardin: What do they all have in common?
Yes – They are all top name designers of tuxedos. And when you’ve got to look razor-sharp for your prom, wedding, charity events, or you just want to hit the Casino looking like James Bond, you call for tuxedos. But – But it is one thing to where a designer tuxedo and it’s another to look great in it.

How do you dress to look sharp in a tuxedo? There are a few things you need to pay attention to when choosing the right tuxedo for yourself. First is to rent tuxedo at a good tuxedo rental where your look is actually being given priority. Example of such tuxedo rental companies is Rose tuxedo AZ. Then look at the shoulders, make sure they don’t jut out. Check the back of the suit jacket, make sure it falls in a straight line when you button up. To be sure you have the right fit, the fabric around the abdomen should be close your body but not tight.

Make sure you have the right length of both the jacket and trousers. It shouldn’t be too long and it shouldn’t be too short. If you are a little overweight, keep the lapel shape to a notch as it will make your body shape seem longer.
A traditional tuxedo normally has one-button fastening. This should stay closed at all times while standing to accentuate the natural form of the body. A 2-button, single breasted suit, when seated, the jacket should be undone for better comfort. If it has two button jacket, only fasten the top button. For a three button jacket, the last button should never be done up.

Some think it is no more important, but using a cummerbund and waistcoat ro cover your waistline is essential for looking razor-sharp in a tuxedo.

And as for the cuffs, half an inch should be visible below the sleeve hem of your tuxedo jacket, just enough to get a glimpse of your cufflinks.

When you face the decision whether to buy a tuxedo or rent one, well, here is my advice to you: Tuxedos are worn once in a long while to special occasions (for example, you only get married once – hopefully) so why spend that huge amount of money on a one-time use? Its more economical to rent tuxedos. But if you’re worried about the fit, stop. You don’t have to worry about the fit when you have Rose tuxedos. Tuxedos rentals has never been so convenient and fitting before Rose tuxedo brought it to Arizona. For tuxedo rental Phoenix AZ dial 602-957-0089 or tuxedo rentals Peoria AZ call 692-375-8280.

Asking a date to Prom?

Asking a date to Prom?

The Magic of Prom Starts With Finding A Date

Each year for over a hundred years, high school prom (shorthand for the promenade held at the beginning of a formal ball) has been an important coming of age event in American culture. While social etiquette has changed quite a bit in that time, one thing hasn’t, prom dates are still an important yet intimidating part of the experience. Finding yourself one does not have to be hard or overwhelming and asking a date to prom should be fun and not scary.

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to ask our collective crushes to prom. This is probably the worst thing we can do. We imagine all the possibilities ahead of us, ignoring the reality that we are these amazing unique individuals who are worthy of having a date that is into us. Focusing on asking someone you find intimidating to such an event can often make the task seem downright scary. Prom is all about having fun while learning the formalities associated with high-society. Your date should be someone you know you’ll have a good time with, someone you want to make memories with. Most likely you’re looking to ask someone you either enjoy being around or hope to get closer to.

As an initiation into the adult world of semi-formal occasions, it is often our first experience in choosing a date, formal wear, flowers, and ride. Just like other formal events such as weddings, the planning that goes into being prepared for prom night takes time. Therefore, the most important step in asking your prom date to go with you is ask early in the season. The main thing preventing dream prom dates is simply waiting too long to ask.

Most people are flattered by being asked to prom, whether they see any romantic interest or not. The worst-case scenario is they say no and you’re free to ask someone else. However, they may accept and propose you go as friends. Wait too long and they may have already accepted a date that they maybe aren’t as happy about. Don’t be intimidated by and compare yourself to others. Being your genuine self is an important aspect of asking someone on a date. If they say no, it only means you’re not compatible at the moment, not that there is anything wrong with you.

Most people might find it intimidating to talk to their prom date face to face. Relationships should always be handled face to face. However, prom dates aren’t relationships. They are a date to a single event. Dates can be initiated with a handwritten letter, card, or even text. The best part about asking a date to prom is even if they say no you can still attend with a good friend or group of friends. In fact, prom is best enjoyed with the people you spend the rest of your time with. Take someone that is there for you when you are hurt and those that cheer you on. No prom date is complete without friends to share the night with.

Ladies and gentlemen, get out there! The most important part of prom is having a good time and learning how to navigate the planning of a semi-formal affair. Whether you go as a group or with a date, as long as you take the opportunity to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime evening you’ve done it right. Once you have a Prom date or not Rose Tuxedo can help you pick out a Tuxedo or Prom Suit that will make you look and feel good at a great price, more money for you to enjoy dinner and pictures that night. 3 locations to suit you, Phoenix Tuxedos and Mesa Tuxedos.

History of the Tuxedo

Tags : 

The tuxedo today is a symbol of power, money, and importance. It is worn for fancy parties and weddings, and by super spies and celebrities. Like everything else we see in the world of fashion, the tuxedo has a backstory.

The 1860’s began in increased popularity of activities taken place outside for the English middle and upper class. This led to the lounge suit (known in the US today as a standard suit)as an alternative to formal day wear and the evening tailcoat. Another ancestor of the tuxedo is the silk smoking jacket and matching pants ordered by the Prince of Wales (Edward VII).

The tuxedo concept (alternatives for a dress coat) was initially introduced to North America in the fall and summer of 1886. The style varied between waist length and the more conventional suit jacket cut. Tuxedo Park in upstate New York featured some guests attending the Autumn Ball wearing a dress coat which did not contain a tail as commonly worn. It may have been a mess jacket or a more conventional dinner jacket, but the lack of tailcoats paved the way for the modern tuxedo.

Early tuxedo jackets featured two buttons or no buttons with a shawl collar faced in satin or ribbed silk. Later, in the 20th century, the peaked lapel was introduced and became popular and the style utilizing a single button became the standard. At this time, the Oxford grey or a shade of dark blue was highly common. During WWI and again in the 1930’s, midnight blue became a popular alternative to favor with tuxedos. Notch lapels became popular in the 1920’s. Around the 1930’s, the stripe of braid covering the out seam on the legs of the trousers became standard and both the double breasted jacket and white jackets became popular during warmer weather.

Variants of color began popping out in the 1950’s for warmer seasons and by the 1960’s, colors were worn throughout the year and notch lapels came back into fashion. The 1970’s brought on a wide variety of colors for rental purposes. The 1980’s interestingly brought back the classic black style tuxedos (which is surprising due to the love of neon in the 80’s). During this time, the notch lapels returned and have not left. The 1990’s brought in some more traits resembling business suits, including 2-3 button syles, flap pockets, and centre vents. While much of the structure and colors have remained popular since the 1980’s, Midnight blue has once again become a popular option.

Regardless of what era your love of tuxedos stems from, Rose Tuxedo will do what we can to meet your tuxedo needs, whether you want a more classic black or midnight blue or you want to delve into the 1970’s powder blue or other interesting colors. Contact us to schedule a fitting and check out our selection for all of your suit and tuxedo needs.

At this time, the Oxford grey or a shade of dark blue was highly common. During WWI and again in the 1930’s, midnight blue became a popular alternative to favor with tuxedos. Notch lapels became popular in the 1920’s. Around the 1930’s, the stripe of braid covering the out seam on the legs of the trousers became standard and both the double breasted jacket and white jackets became popular during warmer weather. Variants of color began popping out in the 1950’s for warmer seasons and by the 1960’s, colors were worn throughout the year and notch lapels came back into fashion. The 1970’s brought on a wide variety of colors for rental purposes. The 1980’s interestingly brought back the classic black style tuxedos (which is surprising due to the love of neon in the 80’s). During this time, the notch lapels returned and have not left. The 1990’s brought in some more traits resembling business suits, including 2-3 button syles, flap pockets, and centre vents. While much of the structure and colors have remained popular since the 1980’s, Midnight blue has once again become a popular option.
