We are seeing some traffic in our humble little store at the Pittsburgh Mills Mall for weddings this fall. We are able to spot trends take shape in regards to what brides and grooms are choosing for suits and tuxedos in Pittsburgh, PA and I and wanted to share some of the formal looks with all of you.
Most of our popular suits and tuxedos are slim fit styles, but if you are a bigger buy, don’t worry, they are all available up to a size 66 L.
Desire from Michael Kors.
This is a great update on the classic black tux. As with all Michael Kors rental tuxedo and suit styles, this tuxedo is made with a Super 130 premium wool fabric that is soft to the touch and light in weight compared to a traditional suit or tux rental. The Michael Kors Desire tuxedo is a slim fit style with a narrower lapel, matched with a slimmer fit flat front pant. Since it is black, any vest and tie color will go with it. Also, if you are having a formal or black tie wedding, Nothing goes better than a black tux.
Jackson from Ike Behar.
This is our ultra slim fit black tuxedo. Made with a super 120 premium wool fabric, this is a very light weight tuxedo with a traditional peak lapel. For a formal wedding or black tie event, this is a great fitting style. We may be the only vendor in the Pittsburgh Area with a slim fit peak lapel tuxedo in stock.
Xavier from Ike Behar.
This is our slim fit tuxedo in a deep charcoal gray with a black satin lapel. This is a super 120 premium wool tuxedo for a very light weight fabric. This comes with a matching charcoal vest but almost all formal vest and tie colors look great with this tuxedo.
Steel Gray and Black suits from Caravelli.
These suits are available to rent and for sale. This is a modern fit collection of suits that we offer for weddings, job interviews, night on the town events, or any other event where a suit is warranted. Guys in wedding parties like the option of buying their suit rather than renting because they get to keep the suit afterwards. We offer free hems on all suits for wedding parties of more than 3. Its a nice perk.
Steel Gray Twilight from Jean Yves.
This slim fit steel gray tuxedo has been one of our most popular tuxedo rentals for years now because the steel gray is just the right shade for most people, its not too dark and not too light. Because of the matching gray vest in a matte finish, the Twilight series of tuxedos have proven popular for a lot of the rustic weddings around the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. When one takes the jacket off, its a completely different look.
Heather gray Twilight from Jean Yves.
This slim fit heather gray tuxedo has been just as popular as the Steel Gray Twilight. Its a heather gray with a matte finish which also goes well with all of the summer and fall outdoor weddings we have in and around Pittsburgh PA. I’ll get around to writing about all of the popular venues in another blog post.
Tan suits from Lord West and Perry Ellis.
Both of these tan suits are made with premium wool fabrics for a soft feel and a light touch. The Perry Ellis style is more of a British tan and the Lord West is a lighter tan. Both are really nice tan suits. Both are great for outdoor, less formal weddings. I find the Lord West light tan suit is better suited for a beach look and the Perry Ellis style is better suited for inland outdoor or less formal weddings. You can let me know if I’m wrong though.
Blake by Ike Behar.
Like all of the other Ike Behar tuxedo rentals, this is a slim fit tuxedo style made with a super 120 wool fabric for a soft to the feel touch and light weight. The new navy is a bit lighter than the traditional midnight blue suits and tuxedos which always look too dark or resembles a black tux too often. It comes with a matching navy vest which is great for people who want to switch up to a rustic look later on in the evening.
Michael Kors Stirling formal suit collection.
The Stirling collection of suits from Michael Kors are available in New Navy, Black, and a Steel Gray. All of the Michael Kors suits rentals are made with a premium super 130 wool for as soft a fabric as possible in our rental line. All of the Stirling suits for rent have a framed notch lapel and an adjustable waist, but with belt loops to accessorize with a belt rather than suspenders. Available as a slim fit which is tailored to fit all body types and an ultra slim fit or a very trim look.
Aries collection from Larrbrio in
Red and Blue -
Ok. These are NOT popular picks for weddings at all, but they are
a fun look for prom or whatever fun event you have coming up, maybe a host of a game show, circus, or whatever.
I realize that most of the tuxedo and suit styles I mentioned are not just black. In the last 5-7 years there has been a movement away from the classic black tux. Also there has been a big push for better fabrics and a more tailored fit.
