We're not kidding... renting a tuxedo for your upcoming formal affair is a very easy process, easier than you might think! You're starting at the the right place. Jim's Formal Wear is the preferred tuxedo source to over 5000 retailers nationwide and the largest supplier of men's formal wear in the country. What that means to you is there is likely a retailer very close to where you live. We'll mention more about our Nationwide Network of Retailers later.
O.K., let's get into the simple steps of renting a tuxedo...
STEP 1: Create Your Tux.
The very first thing you want to do is create your tuxedo. Our website offers a number of methods to do this. You can simply browse tuxedo and accessory styles by visiting our Tuxedo and Accessory pages. When you find a tuxedo or an accessory item you like, you can do something as simple as print the web page and bring it to your nearest Jim's Retailer. Not sure about that style? You can share the image via email, text or your social media pages - including Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter - to solicit your friends' opinions.
However, for a much more fun way to build a tuxedo, you can use our interactive Build A Tux application which can be launched from the top of our home page - or - from any number of tuxedo or accessory collection pages by clicking the Customize button. Simply use the site to walk through the process of choosing each component of your tux including your tuxedo coat, shirt, fullback vest, tie, pocket square, and formal shoes. You can even add the finishing touches by choosing colored socks and suspenders. To complete the process, save the tuxedo ensemble to the Event Manager for future access to review, print, and share. Feel free to build and save as many tuxedo ensembles as you wish.
Once you have your tuxedo ensemble built the way you want it, the Event Manager allows you to send the details of your event and your chosen styles to your chosen JFW retailer. The advantage will be less time spent in store perusing styles in our catalogs. However, your created tuxedo is not an absolute and you can change your mind at any time along the way!
STEP 2: Visit a Store.
Your next step is to locate and visit your nearest Jim's Formal Wear Retailer. If you have not chosen a tuxedo before you enter their store, not a big deal. These experts are aware of the latest trends and the hottest colors in formal fashion and will help you make choices based on the event you are attending.
Your Jim's Retailer will ask about your event, its date, and will instruct you when to visit the store to try on your tuxedo for a fitting. We, at Jim's Formal Wear, and our Retailers want to make sure your tuxedo fits well, flatters your appearance, and makes you feel good wearing it. Before you leave, they will take your measurements. Leave that process up to them; taking your own measurements and having them be accurate is virtually impossible.
STEP 3: Pickup. Enjoy! Return.
Finally, your tuxedo will arrive at the store and your retailer will notify you. It's a good idea to try the tuxedo on in-store to make sure it is perfect. And then you'll be on your way...
All that's left is for you to enjoy the admiring glances and compliments you receive about your formal look! It's our job to create the Ultimate Formal Wear Experience for you and together with our Nationwide Network of Retailers, we will.
When your event is over, simply put the tux back on the hanger with all of the accessories and return it to your retailer the next business day after the event.
We have an additional page in our website dedicated to the simple process of tuxedo rental and you'll find it right here.
We told you it was easy!
