- Wedding: April 2014
FI and his men (and our dads) are all renting tuxes for the wedding. We have been working with a bridal salon and they were nice enough to bring in some pants and jackets for FI to try on. We went this morning and were happy with the way the tuxes fit but really unhappy with the fabric. It seemed really cheap, prone to attract lint, and just didn’t feel nice at all. Also, FI wears nice quality suits to work regularly so it was especially dissapointing to see that the tux he will be wearing on such an important day was so low quality compared to his everyday outfits.
Can anyone who has been through this recommend a line made from nicer fabric? Or give some guidance on how to tell from the description whether it is nicer (like what is a 120’s wool?).
The place our bridal salon orders from is Jim’s Formal Wear. I think if answers come back saying that all tuxes are similar then we will just end up buying his tux from Brooks Brothers or something but realllly want to avoid that route if at all possible. The salon has already been incredibly helpful and spent some time with us so we don’t really want to abandon them. Also, we do plan to call the bridal salon to ask for their recommendations but they are closed now and I thought it might be helpful to be able to request specific lines prior to speaking with them.
We are having an evening and more formal wedding so tuxes are more appropriate but are really open to suggestions if anyone has any other insight that I haven’t mentioned.
