I’d like to know why the men can’t try on any suits before purchasing/renting.

Apparently, that’s a pretty common practice around the formal places here but I don’t get why. I wanted him to try on different cuts/vests/ties/colors to see what would look good but they all wanted him to buy first.

How about a ridiculously cheap tux? The cheapest nice one I was told was like 170 is that true?

Why do hardly any stores carry vests?

Vests are extremely popular for weddings but we had to go to tons of stores before finding gray vests. And the MW we finally found them in….we walked in asked the guy if they had gray vests, he said No and as we were leaving we saw a rack of them….

I just find it crazy that they don’t stock more nice vests to be worn by themselves since they’re all the rage for weddings.

I have a question.  My BMs are wearing the two birds dress in skate which is like brown and gary at the same time.  What color tux/suit should the groom and groomsmen wear to match. I was thinking straight black would be best but what do you think?  Have you had a lot of brides rent who have similar Bridesmaid or Best Man colors?

Thanks so much for offering to do this! My Fiance and I went to MW a few weeks ago and it was a pretty good experience, even though we felt a little pressured. We’re still going with them, though.

I’m wondering about this coupon that we got. It’s for $30 off each tux rental. How is that supposed to work? Does my Fiance have to go in with each of the guys when they get measured in order for it to apply? We got tuxes that were around $150, so with the coupon it should be around $120. But the guys who have gone in so far have all been charged $150. How is this coupon supposed to work?

I know it’s not your fault, but I feel like the company is jerking people around a bit by making them think they’re getting a deal but then making it so complicated! Even the receipt is really hard to read.

Any insight on the coupon thing? Thanks!

Okay, all I want for the groom and the GMs are grey 3-piece suits (or tuxes, I guess), plain white button downs, and black skinny ties (although the groom’s tie will be different). I can always just buy the ties online, which I’m okay with, but how much are these going to cost per? We haven’t decided on shoes yet, but I don’t want them wearing the patent black ones (but if there’s a matte option, I would be for that). I’m not even sold on the vests just yet, because I would definitely want them to match the fabric of the suit/tux itself, which I haven’t seen yet. 

Also, why is everything pleated? Pleated pants are gross and unflattering. πŸ™

How far in advance do we need to make our rental bookings? I’ve been trying to drag my Mr to pick out a tux for months now and I’m thinking maybe a hard deadline will get him to move a little faster.
