Let’s be honest, shopping for wedding attire can be an intimidating process for any groom. After all, finding an outfit that reflects your personal style, fits you to a T, and fits into your wedding budget can feel like a tall order. What’s more, navigating the world of formal wear isn’t easy and it can be tricky to figure out what menswear retailer, brand, or designer will best suit your needs. Enter: Men’s Wearhouse.
Whether you’re looking to rent a tuxedo or invest in a custom suit, Men’s Wearhouse’s omnichannel experience is all about making shopping for formal wear incredibly easy and enjoyable. The storied menswear brand also understands that no two grooms are alike and allows their customers the freedom to choose how they shop, be it online or in-store. Even better? Men’s Wearhouse has recently launched several innovative digital capabilities such as a contactless measurement tool and a virtual try-on service that make shopping for wedding attire more convenient than ever.
To take the guesswork out of shopping for formal attire, we’ve broken down all the ways grooms can find their wedding day look at Men’s Wearhouse.
Why It’s Great: If you’re only planning to wear your wedding outfit once, renting formal attire is a smart and cost-effective option. What’s more, rentals have come a long way since the days of boxy tuxes and out-of-style suits. In fact, today’s rentals are sophisticated, on-trend, and properly tailored.
Suit and tuxedo rentals are also a smart and affordable option for your groomsmen, family members, and wedding guests. At Men’s Wearhouse, you can even set up a registry to make shopping for wedding attire convenient and stress-free for your loved ones. “We set up a registry and listed the names of anyone that may be coming in to rent a tux and let our family members know where to go and whom to talk to. [Men’s Wearhouse] let us pick the tuxedos for everyone else so all they had to do was come in and get sized. The rental price was extremely reasonable, even for the Vera Wang tuxedos we rented,” reads a review on Men’s Wearhouse's website.
How It Works: Since style and fit are the most important factors to consider when choosing a rental outfit, Men’s Wearhouse launched an innovative virtual try-on service. This feature allows grooms to “try on” any suit or tuxedo by uploading a photo of themselves to their computer or digital device. Once you’ve found the right garment, Men’s Wearhouse’s online measurement tutorial can help you determine your measurements. Another perk to renting? All rented garments come with the option to add accessories like shoes and cufflinks to your order, making it incredibly easy to achieve a thoroughly pulled together foolproof look.
When you’re done with your rental, simply mail it back or drop it off at one of over 800 Men’s Wearhouse or Jos. A. Bank locations in the U.S.—it’s as easy as that!
Why It’s Great: If you’re a groom looking to add a tuxedo or wedding suit to your formal wardrobe, buying your wedding outfit is the way to go. Plus, if you’re someone who attends a lot of formal events, you’ll get plenty of mileage out of your sartorial investment. After all, a traditional tuxedo or a classic blue suit will always stand the test of time.
How It Works: Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank boast an impressive selection of suits and tuxedos that are available for purchase both online and in-store. From elegant tuxedos designed for formal affairs to linen suits perfect for summer soirées, you’re bound to find a garment that speaks to you. But don’t forget, unlike rented outfits, a purchased garment does not come tailored and may need alterations. However, if you happen to find yourself needing a different size or last-minute alterations, Men’s Wearhouse’s associates are known for going above and beyond to accommodate their customers. “The [associates] at Men’s Wearhouse were extremely helpful! One of my groomsmen didn't try on his suit when he picked it up, only to find out it didn't fit. They brought a suit out on the wedding day to the venue and made sure it fit before they left. Great customer service!,” writes a Men’s Wearhouse customer.
Why It’s Great: There’s no better way to showcase your personal style than with a custom wedding suit or tuxedo. With the freedom to personalize your look from the fit right down to the stitching, a custom suit is for the groom with discerning taste. What’s more, opting for a custom outfit means grooms can include details like notes, monograms, or dates inside of the garment for an extra special touch.
How It Works: While the custom process might seem overwhelming—even for formal wear aficionados—Men’s Wearhouse’s experienced associates are dedicated to walking you through the entire process. “We chose Men's Wearhouse because of the styles and prices they offered—but loved them for the service,” reads a review on Men’s Wearhouse. “I felt the team at Men's Wearhouse was happy to help us, and they did a great job creating a signature look for all my guys and my maid of honor who chose a menswear-inspired look as well. They were always professional and friendly.”
Once you’ve decided on your custom design, it takes about two weeks for the factory to create the finished product. Pro tip: Since you are opting for a custom outfit, it’s usually best to get your measurements taken in person.
