Timing your Tux/Suit Rental: When to schedule your fitting

Are you planning a special event and need to rent a tuxedo or suit? When it comes to formal events like weddings, proms, and black-tie galas, one of the most important decisions a man will make is choosing the right suit or tuxedo. With so many styles and variables to consider, it’s crucial to get started early on the process to guarantee that you look and feel your best on the big day.

So, when should a tuxedo fitting be scheduled? Here are some important things to remember:

Event date

Classy recommends booking your appointment online as soon as possible if the event falls during peak wedding season, which is from May to October. More specifically, we recommend an appointment with our formal wear specialists for 6 to 4 months for groups of 4 or more. The summer and fall months are the busiest times of year for weddings and other formal events, so we tend to book up quickly. However, you may have more flexibility if you’re planning an off-peak event.

Travel plans

If you’re traveling for your event, it’s important to consider the timing of your flight and other travel plans. You may want to schedule your final fitting for a few days before leaving to allow for any last-minute altercations. This will also give you peace of mind knowing everything will be perfect for your special event.

Final Fitting

The final fitting and pick up of your tux rental is 3 to 1 day before your event. Any last-minute alterations are done on the spot by our in-house tailor. All our inventory is on-site, which allows for last-minute size changes.

Other commitments

Planning for other commitments leading up to the event is also important. For example, you may want to schedule your tuxedo fitting on the weekend if you have a busy work schedule. It’s best to schedule your tuxedo fitting at a time that allows you to fully focus on the process and ensure you have enough time to make any necessary changes with your party.

In conclusion, timing is everything when it comes to tuxedo rentals to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. By planning and giving yourself enough time, you’ll be able to ensure that you look and feel your best on the big day.
