  1.  How many slim-fit styles do you offer?
  2.  Big or small, can you fit my entire wedding party?  Do you guarantee everything will fit perfectly for the wedding?
  3.  Can I try on some tuxedo options in my size before we make a final decision to use your company without any cost or obligation?
  4.  How much will I be charged to register my wedding with you?
  5.  If I bring my bridesmaid's swatch, can you show me samples of a matching vest and tie?
  6.  Do you have samples of all your tuxedos in the store? Or, would I mostly pick out of a catalog and pictures online?
  7.  If there’s an issue with the fit of a tuxedo, how long does it take you to replace it?
  8.  Does each of your stores have in-store alteration equipment? And does your staff know how to use it?
  9.  How long have you been supplying tuxedo rentals for weddings?
  10.  Do all of your tuxedos and suits come in ringbearer sizing? And, what discount do you offer them?
What type of lapels are there?
  1. Notch - is cut out between the coat’s top collar and the lapel.
  2. Shawl -where there is no change from the collar to the lapel. Instead, it is a rounding continuation of the collar.
  3. Peak - the tip of the lapel points upwards, standing proud from the collar. It is considered more formal and is perhaps most commonly found on double-breasted and dinner jackets.

How to clean and care for my Suit or Tuxedo?
  • After wearing your suit or tuxedo, use a clothes brush to remove any particles or lint.
  • Empty the pockets to prevent them from stretching.
  • Use a good wooden hanger to ensure that your suit or tux will hold the proper fit of the shoulders.
  • Make room in your closet so other clothes do not press against your suit or tux, since clothing needs to breathe.
  • Keep your fine clothing away from sunlight as the sun's UV rays will permanently fade the material.
  • Always have your suit or tux cleaned prior to long-term storage (if there are any stains, point them out to your dry cleaner beforehand); cover your suit or tux with a cotton pillowcase or fabric garment bag to keep dirt and dust off.
  • After cleaning, avoid ironing your suit with a hot iron as this could permanently affect the sheen and color of the suit. If you have a steamer use it to remove any wrinkles.
