1. Your Time to Shine

You are just as important as your beautiful bride! Your wedding day is an important experience and big step for both the bride and groom. You should look the part! If your bride is willing to go to multiple stores looking for the perfect dress, don’t be so quick to just go to a one stop shop to rent a tuxedo!

2. A Touch of Personalization

When working with a bespoke tailor, you will be able to go over every detail of your garment. This is a partnership between you and your tailor. Make sure to about buttons, linings, stitches, and fabrics. This is your time to show your style by designing and showing your creative side. 

3. Fit, Fit, Fit

There is nothing worse than ill fit clothing. Remember: your wedding pictures will be around forever. You don’t want to be reminded of a bad tuxedo every time you look at your album. Your tailor will be able to tailor a tuxedo that will work perfectly for you. 

PRO TIP: Always dress for success! Besides just your wedding day, everyone should have a tailor. 

Working with an Educated Person Rather Than a Department Store

There is something to be said about the decline of the department store. Everyone wants a personal and lasting experience and that’s exactly what you’ll get from choosing to work one on one with a tailor.  By doing so, all your personal and special needs and requests will be granted. 

4. Quality

We use the finest quality fabrics directly from Italy. We produce all our garments domestically and by hand. We have a very old skill approach to what we do. We are 7th generation tailors. What we do is a precise craft and will guaranteed to be noticed. 

5. Investment 

Custom clothing will most likely cost more than a rental or something from a department store. However, it is an investment in yourself as well as your wardrobe. Custom clothing lasts decades and will be a piece you will always cherish. By customizing your wedding day tuxedo, you will have a keepsake to look back on and remember your special day.
