Prom Tuxedo Tips
Your Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions about Prom.
Q. What styles are hot?
A. This varies year to year, season to season. Minsky Formal Wear offers a huge selection of tuxedos and accessories in order to offer variety and suit many individual tastes. Each year several styles tend to be the ones that everybody wants to wear. From our experience, most young people want 'fashion forward' or slightly different than ordinary looks. By visiting our store and talking with one or our tuxedo experts, you can
see those "hot" styles firsthand to determine if they fit your individual taste.
Q. When should I reserve my tuxedo?
A. The sooner you reserve your tuxedo the better, hopefully 2 or 3 weeks prior to the event. The hottest styles book out fast so, by booking early, you will have the greatest selection. The problem occurs when your date hasn't selected her dress yet and you are waiting to find out the color so you can coordinate your choices with her dress. The solution to this dilemma is to reserve your tuxedo style first. Then, when your date is able to let you know the color of her gown, return to select the tie and vest. If you are a procrastinator, take solace in knowing that
Minsky Formal Wear has over 14,000 tuxedos in warehouse, giving us the ability to help you even for those last minute requests.
Q.Do I have to pay for my tuxedo when I reserve it?
A. Yes, At
Minsky Formal Wear we require at least a $30 deposit (cash, Check or Credit
card) to reserve your order.
The full balance of your rental is due at the time of the final fitting. If you are paying by check make sure it is accompanied with a valid drivers license. If paying by a charge card that belongs to your parents or guardian, and they are not present, make sure you have letter of authorization giving you permission to use it.
Q. When is my tuxedo due back?
A. Tuxedos are due back the day after use. If your dance is on a Friday, tuxedos are due back Saturday. For Saturday dances your scheduled return date is
Monday. Due to the heavy number of rentals during school formals it is imperative that you abide by this schedule. Late charges of
$20 per day apply to rentals not returned on time. Your late return may also affect the prom goer who has reserved your tuxedo for the following weekend.
Q. How can I save money on my rental?
A. Almost all tuxedo companies offer special prom pricing. One look around your campus and you are bound to find a special coupon or flyer. At
Minsky Formal Wear you can save around $40 on your tuxedo rental for your prom. A way to save additional money is to become a
"Minsky Formal Wear Prom Representative". By referring your friends to come to
