Job Interviews, Hot Date: When to Wear a Tuxedo

Tags : 

Tuxedos are a major cause for discussion for men. When should you wear a tuxedo ? On what occasion is wearing a tuxedo absolutely necessary? Do you need to wear a tux to impress your date? The questions could go on and on. And yes, a tuxedo or suit can transform any man to look his best.

Tuxedo talks

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 exist 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-around 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 professional head shots taken while you try out your skills in acting, who knows? Our tuxs 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 to convince your man to wear a Suit/Tuxedo to an event

Tags : 

It gets frustrating trying to convince your man to wear a suit or tuxedo for an event when he’s so in love with his jeans and t-shirt. A lot of women have gone through this at least once in their lifetime. They’ve even wished there was a magic button they could press and make him see things the way they do. Well, you’ve found the button. It’s right here. In this article we’ll share with you some tips to convince your man to dress appropriately to an event.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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?

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.

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).

What is she thinking when she chooses her Wedding dress? 

Tags : 

After popping the question and fixing the date, your soon-to-be bride puts a lot of energy into her appearance for the wedding. She can go through countless fittings just to make sure she gets not just the right dress but the best dress for her. It sounds like a headache but this is something she enjoys happily.

And just so you can understand and support her in making this decision, we prepared a list of the factors she considers before selecting her wedding dress. 

Wedding dress for December weddings

Here are just some of the factors that your fiancé considers in choosing the right dress:

Weather: While it may not be a big deal, your fiancé needs to pick out the right dress, depending on the season of the big day. Since most bridal dresses have exposed shoulders or empty backs, she needs to make sure that the dress she chooses will keep her warm despite the cool air. The same goes for a summer wedding.  Arizona Weddings enjoy some of the best weather 8 months a year so a Groom can wear a light weight wool Tuxedo or Suit for his wedding.

Fit: Another thing that your bride needs to consider about her dress is how good it fits on her body. You have to remember that all eyes will mostly be on her, compared to you. During the day itself, it is her moment to shine and her beauty will be radiated from the happiness she feels. As such, she needs to feel confident that she looks her best. It also helps that you reassure her this.

Customs: There are also some customs that your bride needs to abide by, especially if it relates to her religion or family tradition. You need to understand her side and support her through it. After all, the wedding day is just the start of your relationship forever. You need to be there for one another.
Lucky for you, you don’t have to worry so much about your tuxedo. Going through our blog posts,  you will find excellent tips we have shared to help you look your best on your big day. You can choose from our selection, make sure it’s the right fit, and rent it. Contact us today to see how we can help you with your tuxedo rental for your wedding.

How To Be a Great Best Man

Tags : 

  1. Help your best friend prepare: This can be as simple as helping him get ready, setting up the bachelor party, calming him down if he gets cold feet, or helping with general planning. You’re not likely to be heavily involved in the planning, but you’ll be needed in the execution.
  2. Prepare a toast: You are expected to give a toast after the ceremony, before the meal. Keep it truthful, from the heart, but avoid stories of his past lovers, wild parties, or anything else incriminating. It also wouldn’t hurt to compliment the bride a little.
  3. Have a stash of the Groom’s favorite alcohol: Your best friend is incredibly nervous. Keep a couple airplane bottles or a small flask with just enough alcohol to help him get through the jitters. If he’s not into alcohol, come up with something to calm his nerves (tea, soda, cigars, cigarettes, etc.). DO NOT let him get drunk before the wedding starts.
  4. Coordinate: When possible, talk with the Maid of Honor and the Bride. This keeps your guys from getting blind sides or confused. The bride and her girls are more likely to talk to you than the other groomsmen and the groom. If possible, get a female who isn’t in the bridal party to parlay messages if possible. Coordination keeps the bride and groom from getting overwhelmed and allows them to focus on the events to come.
  5. Know the wedding party and guests: Know who is who and who is doing what job. Make sure you know who doesn’t get along (in-laws, rival family members, etc.) and get others in the bridal party involved in diffusing drama, fights, and keep everything rolling smoothly.
  6. Be aware of the time table: Help keep everyone in the grooms party on schedule. Don’t let them get behind, causing the bride to wait at the altar for the groom to finish getting dressed.
  7. Look the part: Make sure your tux or suit is in great shape for the whole party. Be wary of stain creating factors, make sure your clothes are clean, ironed, and in pristine condition. Do what you can to ensure your guys are looking their best as well. Check for stains, wrinkles, and other imperfections in their attire. Keep some sort of emergency spot remover, scissors, and someone on standby who can fix buttons or minor tears.
  8. Have fun!: Once the wedding starts it’s time to relax a little. After the ceremony you may want to be aware of the aforementioned worrisome groups but let yourself have a few drinks or allow yourself to get involved in conversations and party activities to relax. It’s a part, after all! You’ve done your work, now reap the benefits.
  9. Recommend Rose Tuxedo to the bride and groom!: If tuxedo rentals are in order, keep us in mind! You’ll get the best service, fantastic clothing, and timely adjustments and more.

How to Avoid Over or Under Dressing

Tags : 

Renting a Tuxedo or Suit will usually impress anyone (especially the ladies) but sometimes it’s hard to gauge when to dress in a full tux, a business suit, or casual clothes. Today we’ll give you some guidelines so you’ll know when you need to come to Rose Tuxedo for your rental needs. Dress codes can get confusing, we’re here to help.

Full Formal: Usually means guest need to rent attire for the event.

  • Daytime: morning dress, tailcoat, vest.
  • Nighttime: white tie.
  • Usually reserved for highly formal award ceremonies, diplomatic events, etc.
  • Not often done unless in a wealthy upper class social circle and event.
  • Not usually done with weddings or parties.

Semi-Formal: People confuse this and formal all the time, also usually requires guests to rent attire.

  • Often times when people say “formal,” they actually mean “Semi-formal” nowadays.
  • Daytime: stroller (not understood commonly, may need to make notes in invitations)
  • Nighttime: tuxedo with black tie.
  • Done for rarer events like weddings, not regular events.
  • Make sure your tux fits well and is altered where needed, stress a solid black theme—bright colors are mainly for Proms.

Business Dress: Matched suits! Some rentals may be required.

  • Dark, solid (or pinstriped) suits are the safest bet, usually with a white dress shirt, basic tie, and black leather oxfords.
  • Daytime: You can probably get away with a lighter gray or a dark brown suit.
  • Invitations that do not specify “business” dress but simply state to wear a suit and tie will allow guests to play with color a little more.
  • Church affairs, light-hearted events, nice meals, etc.

Business Casual: Fewer people will need to rent, but not everyone owns the pieces.

  • Suit jackets are not required, but often desired, but the pants are not expected nor required to match.
  • Collared shirt with slacks or khakis encouraged, often worn with navy blue blazer (but colors can vary).
  • It is also acceptable to wear sweaters or dress shirts sans blazer or sports jacket.
  • Safe bet: jacket and tie (easier to remove pieces if you seem overdressed)

Casual: Everyone’s favorite.

  • Neckties are not needed, but a more casual (but nice) jacket can be worn without looking out of place.
  • Jeans are acceptable, but dark fitted jeans in good shape are expected.
  • Collared shirts (like polos) and nice shoes (loafers, leather shoes, etc.) are not required, but will look the best.
  • If they bothered to send out actual invitations, wearing a t-shirt and ripped jeans with flip flops will not cut it.

“Optional” attached to dress code type: This gets confusing.

  • Say your host puts “black tie optional” on the invitations, this means what it says, but it still has expectations.
  • Guests are encouraged to wear stated “optional” dress, but not required. This allows an event to seem less formal while retaining a level of class. This allows guests to avoid renting a tux or suit (or buying one, for that matter) if they wish to just go with something less formal.
  • It’s encouraged that guests meet closely to the suggested attire, but not go above it (business dress optional would mean you wouldn’t go rent a tuxedo, or “black tie optional,” doesn’t mean you have to rent a tuxedo, but a nice suit would be appreciated).
  • See also: preferred.
    • This allows guests who can’t meet the suggested “optional” or required dress code to feel comfortable

When in doubt, (no dress code listed, or confused about phrasing) ask around. Ask the host, ask other guests, take into consideration the date, time, season, and importance of the event. Chances are, a birthday party will be, at max, business dress while a wedding is likely to require, at minimum, business dress (depending on your relation to the bridal party). Rose Tuxedo has all your suit and tux needs, so give us a call.
