Black Tie

Screenshot_3_30_16__12_00_PMWhen the weather starts to make a turn for the best (and soon it will), most people are thinking polo shirts, golf, and major amounts of sun block; but me, I see the signs of spring as the start of a new season of formal charity events, formal balls, and most of all, weddings. Depending on your calendar invites, Facebook notifications, and how many friends your spouse has, you may have a few formal events sprinkled throughout the year, and you may be trying to decide between investing in your very own tuxedo, suit, or making the best of a rental. Whether you're renting or buying, remember that a "black tie" event is a sign that what you're attending is of the utmost importance and deserves your best. As Tom Ford has stated, "Dressing well is a form of good manners." So along with “no elbows on the table,” remember that dressing well starts with fit. It’s crucial, especially if it's your wedding.

We realize that not everyone needs or can afford a new tuxedo, so we have worked diligently to find the best rental options for you. If we measure you, we guarantee the fit. We can tell you horror stories of rental tuxedos measured at big box stores or national discount retailers that have been total disasters. Our in stock tuxedos are priced very attractively and are a great value.

Now for those of you looking to invest in your formal wardrobe, or have way too many events, getting a custom-made tuxedo or suit is always your best bet. Not just for fit purposes, but as design goes, it doesn't hurt to have options. From lapel types and widths to linings, monograms, and buttons, it’s actually fun to design your custom tuxedo or suit.

So as formal season descends upon us, make sure you're prepared. I can promise you, if you're looking good, you'll actually be excited to go to another wedding or gala. We also have the perfect shoes and accessories. We want you to look the best at the party. Those pictures last a lifetime. Dress for it.
