Certainly the hottest tuxedo color for weddings and proms right now is gray. We are experiencing an overwhelming response to our existing gray tuxedo styles, the Savoy and the Steel Gray. Such a great response, in fact, that we are preparing to add a new gray tuxedo and suit to our rental line in the very near future!
The tuxedo has been designed and so has a companion suit. The tux will be called the “Aspen” and the suit, the “Dillon.” A matching gray vest will also be available to accompany both. The shade of gray for the new tux and suit will fall comfortably between the lighter, heather gray of our Savoy and the darker shade of our Steel Gray tuxedos.
Are you thinking colorful accessories are going to look good with these gray coats? So are we. As we were preparing for the photo shoot, we saw a number of great color combinations come together. A wide variety of colors from our extensive fullback vest program will complement these gray styles nicely…
As you can see by the images posted here, our photo shoot for the new gray tux and gray suit has been completed. In fact, we accomplished a full day of shooting just this past week at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis.
No pun intended, but we had gray skies the whole day and a few bouts of rain to chase us indoors. Luckily, we had a colorful setting inside one of the garden’s temperate houses and we captured a number of great shots that will ultimately become catalog pages, posters and used for other marketing purposes.
The Aspen and the Dillon will be available for rental from our national network of retailers late Summer 2013! Keep visiting our website and our Facebook page for more announcements about these cool gray coats…
