FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PROMS
How do I choose a style?
Your graduating and you want to look great, so what do you wear? There are a few things you can do. First browse through our style gallery to get an idea of what catches your eye. But what looks good in a picture might not look good on you. This is where a tux shop with an in-stock selection makes all the difference. You should go to the store after school or on a weekend as early as possible and let the trained staff explain to you the basics of formal style and then help you try on a coat style to know without a doubt what looks good on you.
How long before do I need to reserve my tuxedo?
It is never too soon to reserve your tuxedo. Styles get reserved fast so the earlier you come in the greater selection you will have to choose from. Generally, 3 to 6 weeks before the event is a good time to have your tuxedo reserved. Many wait because they are not sure what their date will be wearing. The best thing to do in this case is come in, reserve the coat, the most essential part of the outfit, and come back to reserve a matching vest when you find out about her dress. This way you have covered all your bases.
Do I have to pay all the money up front?
No you don't. You can simply leave a $25 reservation deposit to hold your tuxedo and pay the balance upon pickup. However it is in your favor to pay the full amount from the start because it will save you time on the busy pick up day before the prom.
When do I pick up my tuxedo?
The tuxedo is usually ready a day before the event for you to come in and try on. A quick call to the store the week of the event will often tell you that your tuxedo is ready early in which case you are welcome to beat the crowd and pick it up at no extra charge.
What if I waited until the last minute?
Congratulations, your going to prom in a powder-blue, bell bottom tuxedo with pink ruffles! We're just kidding, actually if you go to a store that has their tuxedos in-stock (not in an out of town warehouse) you can usually be accommodated just fine. In fact, our specialty is last minute orders.
