Tux Rentals at More Time

Getting Started with Tux Rentals at More Time

When it comes to doing tux rentals at More Time, Jen tells us that she recommends coming in at least 6-8 months before your wedding date. Once you have decided on what your colors will be and who will be in your wedding, Jen says that is typically a good time to come in.

When you contact More Time inquiring about tux rentals for your wedding, the first thing that they will do is send you to the Build a Tux website to help you get an idea of what you are looking for. After you have decided, you can either send them the link or show them a picture of what you have chosen and it will provide them all the information that they need so they can make sure that they order the corresponding items in each person’s size. If you are unsure of what you want, the More Time team would be happy to assist you in finding what you are looking for!

Build a Tux

The Build a Tux website is essentially a place for you to build what you want for a tux at your wedding. There is a variety of different colors and so many variations that you can do!

If you happen to have some difficulties with the site, one of the ladies at More Time can help walk you through it on the monitor that they have set up in the store specifically used for the Build a Tux website.

Shoes and Accessories

There are two different types of ties that you could choose from, a bowtie and a Windsor tie. Ties are available in a variety of different colors and textures. Jen tells us that if you want to match a tie to a dress, it is important to bring in the dress or a piece of fabric. While most people match their vest to their suit jacket, there is a variety of different colors that you could get the vest in.

Another pop of color that can be added to a suit is pocket squares. Pocket squares also come in a variety of different colors and textures. Colorful socks and suspenders are other fun ways to add color to your tux. These items are only available for purchase not rental.

There are only 4 types of shoes that are available for rent through More Time, the rest are for purchase only. There are the classic brown and black shoes then a variety of more colorful and fun ones.

Tux Measurements

Jen walks us through the process of getting measured for a suit or tux. These measurements help Jen and her team decide what size of coat, shirt, pants, etc. to order for you.

The process is quick and easy. They will take 7 measurements. They will take 2 different chest measurements, one under your arms and one over your arms. Then they will measure your waist and your hips. Lastly an outseam measurement, neck measurement, and arm measurement.

Ring bearers can be fitted to! They get the same measurements as adults and can typically get just about any color or fit as well.

Renting vs. Buying

The main tip that Jen gives us is that if you plan to use it again or simply just need a nice suit to have, you should think about investing in one. You could buy just the jacket, pants and shoes and then rent different colors of ties, undershirts, etc. as you need them.

Tux vs. Suit

Jen tells us that in a suit, the lapel is the same color and fabric as the rest of the jacket. Suit jackets also will have more a standard looking button on them.

When it comes to tux jacket, there will typically be some sort of satin finish on the lapel. The entire lapel could be a satin finish or even a different color. The buttons are covered in the tux fabric rather than being just a standard button like the suit.

Tip from Legacy Events

Make your groom’s look pop by switching up these different elements while still keeping a uniform look: different tie, different suit color, different vest color, etc.
