Can I measure myself for a tuxedo rental?
It may seem really simple to measure yourself for a tuxedo, but it’s important to remember that it’s next to impossible to acquire accurate measurements. An inaccurate measurement that may be off by only an inch may get you a tuxedo coat that’s one or two sizes too big or small.
It’s best to count on CTO Bridal to measure you for your formal affair. They have been professionally trained in proper measuring techniques and will be able to acquire the necessary measurements to ensure your tuxedo will fit properly!
When will my tuxedo rental arrive at CTO Bridal?
After CTO Bridal places your tuxedo order with the Customer Service Agents, your order is held in our computer system until approximately 7-10 days prior to your event. At that time, your order goes into production at one of the ten service centers across the country.
Jims Formalwear will deliver or ship your order to arrive a few days prior to your event. You can check with CTO Bridal for a more definite answer on when they generally receive tuxedo shipments during the week. In general, you can expect to receive your tuxedo on Wednesday or Thursday for a Saturday event.
When should I return my tuxedo rental?
CTO Bridal will expect your tuxedo to be returned on the first business day following the event. Inquire about our return policies; late fees may apply!
Can I return my tuxedo to a different location than where I rented it?
Each of our retailers is independently owned and operated, so you’ll need to return the tuxedo to the same location as where you originally placed your order.
If you’ll be traveling out of town for an event, consider placing your order with a retailer in the destination city to eliminate additional rental charges or issues with the return of the tuxedo.
