How far in advance should I book rentals for my wedding?
We prefer that you book your tuxedo rentals about 3 months before your wedding. It tends to flow better when you book more in advance, it gives your groomsmen time to come to our store and be measured or send in their measurements from out of state. However, if you are running a little behind and want to book rentals in the same week or even same day, we can definitely do that for you too.
One of my groomsmen lives out of state. Will you be able to fit him?
Yes, we will be able to get him into a rental. All he needs to do is go to our website www.SuitsUnlimitedNM.com and right from the home page he can print an Out-of-Town Measurement Form. He can take it to any menswear or tailoring shop to get professionally measured. Then all he has to do is call/fax/email the measurements back to us. Keep in mind that we cannot be held responsible for measurements not performed in our store. We will do everything possible to make any necessary corrections.
What is the difference between a suit and a tuxedo?
A tuxedo is a coat and pant finished with satin lining. Satin is usually found on the lapel of a jacket, on its buttons, and along the jacket pockets. There is also usually a satin strip down the out seam of the pants of the tuxedo. A suit has none of these satin linings. A suit can be worn for a more casual event or wedding and a tuxedo is for more formal occasions or weddings.
Do you guys do suit rentals as well?
Yes we rent three colors of suits: a black two button suit, a navy two button suit, and a tan two button. We also sell suits and can provide same day tailoring services on garments that you purchase from us.
How much does it cost to rent a tux?
It depends on the style of tux that you choose as well as the additional accessories. Give us a call today for pricing.
What is included in the rental cost?
Our basic tuxedo includes the jacket, pants, shirt, tie, and basic vest or cummerbund. All other price points include jacket, pants, shirt, and any color tie and vest. We rent shoes separately.
Do you carry big and tall as well as child’s sizes?
In most styles we carry as small as a 3 Toddler up to a size 70 in men’s coats and pants. All prices are the same across the board. There is no up-charge for larger sizes and no discount for smaller sizes.
May we try on items when we are booking the rentals?
We actually do not carry our full line of tuxedos and accessories in-store to try on. However, we would be happy to set an appointment with you to try on garments for approval. Ask your associate for details.
When do we pick up our tux rentals?
If you are getting married on a Saturday then we would like to have your party come in to our store to do a final fitting on the Thursday or Friday before. But in any case you may pick up your tux rentals a day or two before your wedding.
What if garments are too long or too short when being tried on?
When you come to pick up your tux rentals we do a final fitting that takes about 20 minutes. During that time we check to make sure the hem is correct on pants as well as jackets. We also want to make sure you look perfect as well as feel generally comfortable in the garments. If a hem is too long or short it takes us a few brief minutes to correct it and the garment is ready to take with you that same day.
When are tux rentals due back?
Rentals are due back the day after the event. For example, if your wedding is on a Saturday you may return your tux rentals on Sunday, as well as Monday, during normal business hours.
Do we need to clean the tux rentals before we bring them back?
No, you do not need to clean the garments; however, we do ask that you bring them back on hangers, in the original garment bag that was given on the pick up day, and not in trash bags.
We are doing a destination wedding and will need to rent a tux for a week. Is that something I can do with Suits Unlimited?
That is certainly something we can do. Book your tux rentals in about 3 months in advance and let us know when you plan on leaving so we may have your garments ready the day before you leave.
