WHO USUALLY SELECTS THE WEDDING TUXEDOS?
The bride and the groom. The specifics of your wedding concerning style, formality and time of day will affect your decision.
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING DOESN'T FIT?
Make sure the men in your wedding party try on their tuxedos when they pick them up. Since we have our entire inventory on site, we can fix whatever may not fit correctly right on the spot.
DO ALL TUXEDOS HAVE A SATIN STRIPE DOWN THE SIDES?
Yes, except for daytime formals, which do not.
WHAT'S THE PROPER FIT FOR A TUXEDO?
THE COAT It should fit comfortably across the shoulder. On most styles, the body should be long enough for the coat to brush the insides of your fingers when your hand is cupped around the bottom. SLEEVES Each should fall just below the wristbone. COLLAR It should comfortably hug the neck. TROUSERS Worn at the waist. They must not grab the hip or thigh allowing the pleats to fall naturally, and the length should brush the shoe tops. VESTS The vest should be fit comfortably across the chest and back but snug without a lot of extra space. The waist should be adjusted to also fit snug, but not tight.
WHAT IF I HAVE MEMBERS OF THE COURT COMING IN FROM OUT OF TOWN?
That's our specialty!! Out of town Members of your wedding party can visit any one of 1200 nationwide affiliates and get sized free of charge. By sending their measurements to us their tux will be ready to wear when they arrive in Miami . No need to travel with a cumbersome carry on item!
CAN ALL THE MEN IN THE PARTY WEAR TAILS?
Absolutely! It's most appropriate when the bridesmaids' gowns are very formal. Generally this is used for “Black Tie” weddings.
HOW CAN WE ENCOURAGE OUR GUESTS TO DRESS UP?
On the invitations, add the words, "Black Tie Invited."
WHEN SHOULD I SELECT MY WEDDING TUXEDOS?
Once the bride has picked out her color scheme, the tuxedos can be selected. It is never too early. Six to eight weeks will give your groomsmen enough time to get fitted.
