Tuxedo Tips & Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I'm a guy who lives in jeans. How do I begin to shop for a tuxedo?
A. Relax. Tuxedos and tailcoats are basically dressed up suits. They are fitted the same way. Traditionally, the groom's attire is determined by the size and
formality of the wedding. Another important factor is the Bride's gown. Browse our website pages to see what's current.

Q. Do all the men in my wedding party need to wear tuxedos?
A. It is customary for the Groom, Bestman, Ushers, Groomsmen, Ring bearers and fathers to wear tuxedos. Some couples request grandfathers, uncles,
godfathers or other close family friends to wear tuxedos as well. It is a great way to include them in a special way on your wedding day.

Q. I'm getting married. How far ahead of time should we choose what the men will wear in our wedding?

A. We suggest you make arrangements two or more months before the wedding date. Some prefer to book their wedding six months or more prior. You definitely want to allow plenty of time for all of the men (and boys) in your wedding party to come in at their convenience.

Q. When does everybody need to be fitted??
A. As a general rule of thumb all your groomsmen should complete their initial fittings at least one month prior to your wedding day. Feel free to push that date back to 6 to 8 weeks prior, giving you peace of mind. Coordinating all the proper sizes and styles takes time so having everybody fit in ample time is very important.

Q. Do I need to make an appointment for my tuxedo fitting?

A. Appointments are not necessary. We encourage you to come in at a time that is most convenient for your schedule.
You may want to avoid Friday afternoons, as that is the pick up time for tuxedos going out that week.

Q. How long will it take for my tuxedo fitting?
A. It will only take 15 to 20 minutes to be properly fitted (sized) for a tuxedo. In order to give the proper attention to our fittings, we do suggest that whole wedding parties not come in at one time. One or two at a time is best.

Q. I have a few guys who are hard to fit; will you be able to accommodate them?

A. We SPECIALIZE in fitting! Fit is the most important part of a tux! You can have a tux that is really nice, but if it doesn't fit right, it won't look very good.
We stock from sizes 3 to 70 in most of the popular styles. Our fitters are trained and highly experienced.

Q. Who pays for the tuxedos?
A. It is completely up to each wedding party. What seems to be most popular is that each person pays for their own tux rental.

Q. When will I pick up my tuxedo?

A. Your rental tuxedo will be ready the day before the use date, usually on Friday afternoon. (Unless special arrangements have been made in advance).

Q. Do I have to try it on in the store when I pick it up?

A. It is best to allow 15 to 20 minutes pick up time so that you can at least try on the coat, pants and shoes. This way we are assured that every tuxedo leaving our store fits properly. If there are any adjustments necessary they can usually be taken care of immediately. If you are not able to pick up your own tuxedo, we ask that you please try it on as soon as possible at home. If you have a concern about the fit, please contact us immediately by phone so that we may remedy the situation before your event.

Q. When do I pay for the tuxedo rental?
A. We require a $20.00 partial payment at the time of fitting. The balance is due on or before pick-up day. Mannino's Tux and Tails accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, ATM Cards and checks with proper ID. (We cannot accept out of state checks). Oh, yes, we also take cash!

Q. When will the rental tuxedo be due back?
A. All rental formalwear is due back the next business day after use, unless special arrangements have been made in advance. There is a $10.00 per day extended rental charge for every day it is late.
