The fads sell better than the classics. Case in point: gray tuxedos. But yes, Men’s Wearhouse is junk, and this spokesman is an idiot.

What the hell is “not standing the stand of time”? I think what makes our mom’s photos and grandmother’s photos fascinating is the fact that they are obviously vintage.

That’s funny, more of my friends got married this year than I’ve ever seen or expected. all before me, too, even tho I was engaged first. had i known, I would have picked a different year, but that has nothing to do with the year being 2013 and superstition. Oh well, they have to blameshift onto someone.

I’m pretty superstitious but if I had to hold off getting married for a number, I would go crazy

@nineteen87:  Ugh.

 

We used Men’s Warehouse for our tuxes. They were DISGUSTING. My hubby’s was dirty, and visibly so, the pants were all MASSIVE throughout the butt and legs so it looked like all of the guys had dropped a load in their pants, the jackets were too long, coupled with the oversized pants it made the men look sloppy and not very well put together. At $130 a rental (seriously $130 for ONE DAY!?), I’ll be honest- I expected a lot more. . . Now to see this? No, you’re overpriced and have crappy service. Superstition has nothing to do with it.

@nineteen87:  I actually laughed at loud. It is never a good sign when the CEO blames superstition, silly ladies, for a decline in growth and profits. Heaven forbid he actually put a little elbow work in.

We went into a Men’s Wearhouse to look at the tuxes and they were certainly of lower quality than other options. We opted for a local rental company and the tuxes were great, clean, the RIGHT size without missing any items etc all for a price that was comprable to what MW was planning to charge.

I never thought of the number 13 until we started looking at venues and found that 2014 is filling up because the number 13 is unlucky in many Asian cultures (we live in LA).   As for Men’s Warehouse we’re steering clear of them.  Everytime my FI has rented a tux for a wedding it hasn’t fitted right, smelled bad, and had other major problems.  I want him to be comfortable on our wedding day so he’s wearing a black suit and we’re having the vest and tie made locally.  I wouldn’t touch Men’s Warehouse with a ten foot pole!

Clothes that don’t fit well will never stand the test of time. Clothes that fit well might go out of style, but they’ll never look as bad as clothes that don’t fit. If you rent, you’ll never get a great fit. MW is notoriously bad in this department. I had to rent when I was a Groomsman and had to exchange 2 of my pieces even though I was measured by an “expert”. This is a very large part of the reason I decided to let my groomsmen wear their own suits.

I got married in 2013 but did not use MW. Because their salesmen were pushy and outright lied to me. But sure, blame it on the year, geniuses! Al’s Formalwear was much more accommodating.

The date didnt matter at all to me. I would not hold off a full freaking year just because of a number.
