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.

Wearing A Suit: How To Be A Super-Spy

Tags : 

A suit or tuxedo can be the best investment a man can make, but it can also be a lot of fun! Rent one for special events or for a Halloween costume. So many Halloween costume ideas are overplayed and make men look frumpy, awkward, or childish. Renting or owning a tuxedo/suit opens the doors to many amazing costume ideas from your Super Spy alter ego to Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, James Bond, or Barney from “How I Met Your Mother.” You’ll look great and everyone will think you’re loaded (figuratively in every sense of the word). Get your suit here for a great Halloween costume and something nice to wear to your cousin’s wedding you’re being forced to go to.

Like any good superspy or covert operations agent, you’ll need a suit or a tuxedo if it won’t draw extra attention to yourself. Don’t show up to a stranger’s wedding or a place of business in a full tuxedo—stick with a suit, maybe even leave the jacket or vest at home. Read here for ways to wear any combination of suit pieces for nearly any occasion!

When picking out your super-spy suit, pick one that is fitted to your body type—this means you may have to have it tailored, but it’ll be worth it in the end. Wearing the right clothing will make you look leaner and more confident when you swagger around looking like James Bond and NPH had a baby.

Suit jackets and vests are great for hiding gear! Mobsters always find great ways to conceal weapons with fancy holsters from head to toe, so you can hide just about anything in the right suit. Hide a radio, recorder, intelligence sheets, and more on your person with jacket or vest pockets, garters, and more. Buy one of those fancy camera pens and put it in your coat pocket and use your Bluetooth headset to look like a busy professional while you’re actually getting information from home base! Or, you know, stalk your buddy to find out what he wants for his birthday.

From firearms to flasks, suit pockets are ideal for concealing items (Warning: smuggling guns or alcohol is dangerous and can cause legal repercussions, proceed with caution). From undercover police or legitimate spies to the average Joe at a “dry” event, a suit may be mildly inconvenient if you’re not used to it but between how amazing you’ll look to all of the ways you can use it to your advantage, it’ll be worth it in the end. Special belts with holsters, breast pockets, and more can hold nearly anything you can imagine. Tips for carrying weapons can just as easily work for other items—especially for covert operations! If dressing up for a costume party, skip the real guns and go with Nerf, paintball/airsoft, water guns, or other fairly-obviously fake weapons to prevent scaring anyone.

No one will recognize you when you’re dressed to the nines in one of our fantastic suits, meaning you can sneak up on your own mother and she won’t realize it’s you until you speak. On the other hand, you can blend in at business functions and spy on your boss to find out if he loves you, hates you, or wants to promote or fire you. Use stealth and blend in to the crowd and no one will be the wiser.

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!

Waistcoat Tips with a Tuxedo

Waistcoat Tips with a Tuxedo

Men in tuxedos are always an interesting sight. But because it isn’t a very common thing to see men in a waistcoat or vest (at least not anymore nowadays), not everyone who wears a tuxedo knows how to dress right. This is very unfortunate for them because when men wear a tuxedo, women will immediately be attracted to them. But if they don’t know what to wear the tuxedo with, they end up with disappointed dates.

Here are some tips that you can follow when wearing a waistcoat with your rental tuxedo:

When to Wear a Vest

It is very disappointing to see men wearing a waistcoat with just about any tuxedo. Unfortunately, the right way to wear a waistcoat is when you’re wearing it with a single-breasted tux. This is mainly to conceal the visible white fabric between your waistband and jacket button.

Choose the Right Size

When you wear a vest with a tuxedo, it can instantly make your whole look sharper. However, you have to see to it that your waistcoat has been fully tailored to your size. If it doesn’t, the effect will reveal itself when you’re standing up or sitting down.

Mixing Fabrics

You need to match the lining of the tuxedo along with the color you use for the back part of the waistcoat. This is simply because when you mix different colors, it will not look smart or elegant; especially for a black tie event.

What Not to Do

Cummerbunds, together with waistcoats, are currently becoming a trend. But this doesn’t mean you should wear them both at the same time. Otherwise, you will be overly decorative and end up mismatched.

When you wear a tuxedo, you make yourself look sharp and presentable. If you are unable to wear it right, you’ll clash and people will not think you are as smooth as you dress. Check out our collection of tuxedos to wear for a special occasion. Suits for rent in Arizona
