Tuxedo FAQs

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RENT A TUXEDO?

The general rule for when you need to rent a tuxedo or suit for your wedding has been two months in advance, but in the world of COVID-19, you may only get two months – or even two weeks – total to plan your wedding. It’s important to find a wedding tuxedo or suit vendor that can accommodate a tuxedo or suit rental request on short notice. This is where Jim’s Formal Wear (JFW) can help.


DO YOU HAVE OFFER ANY SPECIALS OR PROMOTIONS?

Yes! We do offer special offers and promotions.  
With 5 full tuxedo rentals the grooms tux is free!

Special pricing for the ringbearer with qualifying rental too!


WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?

When coming in to get measured, we usually require a $50 deposit.    The rental balance is due when picking up the tux at the final fitting.

OUT OF TOWN GROOMSMEN

Your wedding will be held in your home town. A couple of your groomsmen live in other states. They are unable to travel to the Jim's Formal Wear Retailer who is handling the tuxedos for your wedding to be measured. How do they get measured for their tuxedo if they are arriving the day before the wedding?

 - Have your gentlemen visit a participating Jim's Formal Wear Retailer to get measured - there are 5,000 Authorized JFW Retailers nationwide - six times the number of any other tuxedo rental source!

 - If a JFW Retailer is not close, a professional tailor or menswear shop is a good alternative and their store staff will likely be skilled in taking measurements.

 - Once your gentlemen have their measurements taken , have them send the measurements to your chosen Jim's Retailer that is handling your wedding- a phone call or an email.  The men will need to submit a payment to the retailer at the same time.

Measurements should be submitted at least four to six weeks before your formal affair. Your JFW Retailer will pick up the tuxedo ordering process from here!

Once your gentlemen get into town the week of the wedding, have them promptly visit your local JFW retailer handling your order to try on the tuxedos. Our retailers will want to make sure the tuxedo fits perfectly!

If your guys won't arrive in town until last minute, no problem! We can ship the tuxedos directly to your out-of-town groomsman's home or office, so he can try it on before traveling to your wedding. Just ask about our Direct Delivery program.

If any issues arise, your JFW Retailer will be able to handle any last minute alterations or changes before your wedding.


ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR SUCCESS:

Do not try to take measurements yourself! An inaccurate measurement that may be off by only an inch may get you a tuxedo coat that's one or two sizes too big or small. For the best fit, it is imperative that an experienced professional take your measurements.

Direct your gentlemen to visit an Authorized Jim's Formal Wear Retailer to have measurements taken. These stores have been trained to measure properly to ensure a great fitting tuxedo. If a JFW Retailer is not close, a professional tailor or menswear shop is certainly a good alternative. (Please be aware that some retailers may charge a small fee for measurement services).

Current measurements are the most accurate! Even though a gentleman may have been measured for a tuxedo recently, measurements can and do change. It's wise to be measured again.



WHEN SHOULD I RETURN MY TUXEDO RENTAL?

Your Jim's Formal Wear Retailer will expect your tuxedo to be returned on the first business day following the event.  For returns later than Monday after the event a $20 per day late fee will apply.



CAN I RETURN MY TUXEDO TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION THAN WHERE I RENTED IT?

Each JFW retailer is independently owned and operated, so you will need to return the tuxedo to the same location where you originally placed your order.



WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TRADITIONAL, MODERN AND SLIM FIT TUXEDOS?

All three styles work well with all body types. The only difference between the fits is the tuxedo's silhouette.

 
DO YOU HAVE TUXEDOS FOR LITTLE BOYS?

Yes, we do carry tuxedos and formal accessories for little boys! We have a wide variety of styles and sizes.
