I recently had the opportunity to try out a new suit company. The Groomsman Suit 2 months ago May 7th I got married to the woman of my dreams. When planning this joyous event, we searched for a suit for me. I wanted to own the suit, not just rent one. I wanted to look great and the suit to have a tailored look. You know the perfect fit. We contemplated renting a tux, but they are only around your size, not exactly the look I was going for.
The Groomsman Suit
Here is an honest review of my experience ordering – and wearing a suit – from The Groomsman Suit. The suit was provided at a discount in exchange for this post.
It took a bit for the suit to get to me. A little less than 2 weeks. On their website they say
“We recommend ordering 10-12 weeks prior to your event date. While we typically ship within 24-48 hours from the day you place your order, we like to allow extra time for any necessary exchanges and alterations as well as account for any temporary back orders in sizes you or your group may need.” They will fix any mistakes made on their part; they want to ensure you have the perfect fitting suit for the occasion.
Buying a tux and having it altered was the best option for us. The cost of buying a tux is between $99.99 and the sky. This cost does NOT include a shirt, tie, shoes, cufflinks, or cummerbund if you are wearing one. IT gets costly fast. Enter into the fray The Groomsman Suit company. This is by far the best way to order a suit and have it arrive at your door. No going to a big box store and trying on suit after suit, Here you pick the color (btw they had the color I wanted, and the big box store did not), the fit you want and send in your measurements. They alter the suit for you and send it in the mail with a garment bag that protects your suit. You will have to have it pressed but other than that this was super easy and hassle-free.
The cost of this tux was $199 for the jacket and $95 for the pants this included the altering. With shipping, we paid a little over $210 not bad at all. The pants did need to be hemmed when we got them, but the overall fit of the entire tux was perfect. This tux is the best value for the money anywhere. The jacket and the pants altered and shipped to our door. The convenience alone was worth the money.
As you can see from the pictures we got married 🙂 She looked amazing, and I looked and felt, well comfortable. The suit moved with me, and the fit was exactly what we envisioned. They got the right fit on the first try. We ordered early in case we had to send it back or take it locally to get altered, but it fit! To our amazement, without them measuring me, they got the perfect fit. I did send in exact measurements, but that was easy to do, and I did it at home, with the wife's help of course. All in all, I am incredibly pleased with this purchase.
One Last Thought
They sell accessories also. You can get the entire suit, including shoes shipped to your door and you are done. No muss no fuss. I cannot say anything about the customer service because we never had to call them 🙂 everything was delivered in a timely manner, and the fit was great. Check out the pictures to see for yourself.
