We had that issue renting from them too and I had no idea in advance! We went there all prepared to try on stuff. I did, however, get to see fabric swatches of the ties, vests and pocket squares. Also, Freeman Formals outfits Mr. Big and Tall, so the suits will fit your large groomsmen no problem.

This is a problem with most tux stores. If you look through enough catalogs you realize Jim’s Formal Wear has taken over the tux business. You can tell that its all Jim’s because the models are the same. Every tux store we have been to gave us two chairs and a catalog. IF people tried to do this with brides they would get the catalog thrown at them I swear. My Fiance is 6’7 and skinny, he has problems with tuxes not being cut right. Last wedding he was a groomsman and he looked really bad because the whole tux was so loose on him because for some reaon if you are tall they increase height + width. Very frustrating.

Here are some stores I found that have in stock tux selections.It took a lot of research to find these but there are stores out there that will let you actually try on tuxes! Don’t give up!

@Take The Reins: I saw an advertisement for a tuxedo in a wedding magazine (it was NOT jim’s formal wear) and I used that site to locate stores that carried tuxes in stock. I can’t remember what the name of the designer was anymore. But keep your eye out when you are going through bridal magazine… most designers list store locations and if they are not associated with Jim’s Formalwear they normally carry tuxes in stock. Also ask on your local board to see if anyone knows a place you can try on a tux. Good luck!!!
