Prom Tux Tips 101


Prom Tux Shopping 101

  • Bring a swatch of some sort to help select the matching vest & tie.  Cell phone photos don’t cut it.   If you’re unable to shop together the girl may come by separately to select the vest color and guys can stop by to select the jacket style and get measured.
  • We are happy to change items if available and at least 14 days prior to the prom.  If you make changes in your selection once the items are on route or in store, there is a charge.
  • Selecting a jacket can be overwhelming for most guys because of all the lapel options. We offer more than 50 jacket styles to choose from in Black, Grey, Brown, Ivory, White, Navy, Tan, Slate Blue, Red & more! 
  • Our value tux collection offers package pricing INCLUDING shoes.
  • For those on a budget, $59 tuxedo rental is a great option.
  • A 50% down payment (or at least $50) is required to place the tux order. The balance is due at pick up.
  • A drivers license is required to rent a prom tux- either yours or your parents is accepted.
  • We accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, Discover and debit cards.  Parents may pay with a card over the phone.  Checks are NOT accepted for payments within 14 days of Prom.
  • Tuxedos are ready the week of the prom.  Usually on a Wednesday but don’t assume yours is in since our deliveries come at various times.  Call before making a special trip.
  • Please plan time to try on your tuxedo at pick up. Girls would never think of waiting until prom day to try on their dresses and guys shouldn’t either.  You will be instructed on how to properly wear the tux. Should you need some changes we will have time to correct any problems you may have.
  • If you don’t mention concerns about your tux, they can’t be corrected.   Some guys like a tighter fit while others like a loose fit. Don’t expect us to read your mind!
  • Tuxedos may be taken home as soon as they are in at no additional charge (in fact we recommend it).  You do not need to wait until the day of the prom.
  • Prompt return is crucial during prom season. Returns will be confirmed at pick up. Typically it is due back the next business day.  The tux needs to be returned on the hangers the next business day so that the next person wearing the tux has time to make any adjustments. Plan to allow time for us to look over the tux to make sure all items are there.  Be sure to hang the tie securely over the hanger as many times a person returns the tux only to find that the tie has fallen off in the driveway at home and must make a separate trip back in. Remember to check your pockets since we can not be responsible for items left in returned tuxedos.
  • We LOVE to see our guys dressed to the nines with their friends or dates!  Post a prom photo on Facebook or tag us with @larenasboutiwue or use #LarenasLook on Twitter & Instagram.
