    Returns... Please Don't Fuck with Our Tuxedos

    Tuxedo rentals are not costumes and they are RENTALS. These very nice and expensive garments are not your property. They are the property of the company and store you are renting from. With that being said...

    YES, you must return the tuxedo when it is due back & yes, if your late you will be charged a late fee. Making up excuses will not get a shop owner to feel sorry for you or waive the fee. Getting upset about the fee or complaining will have even less effect. 

    BATHE, well...your going to a wedding! Don't you think you should shower before putting your tuxedo on??? These tuxedos come back so dirty that the white shirts are almost indistinguishable from the black coats. The white coats come back and I have to ask sometimes "You rented the white tuxedos correct?" Rolling around in the dirt is a poor substitute for dancing at the reception.

    Control Your Children, come on...a wedding is a place to cut loose but try and maintain some dignity. What will people say about a parent who let his/her children trash the whole reception. Hell, its not a place for a food fight. Children are not dogs, so why do you let them slide around on their knees ripping holes in the pants or worse. Lastly, pay some attention to your son, he may need to pee. In a toilet, not in my tuxedo pants!

    Outside weddings, please get a clue about the weather...at what point do I say to myself lets go for cover? When the water is at knee level? Returning tuxedos with water lines near the knee only shows the depths of peoples lack of reason. Running into the ocean wearing a rental, OMG!!! Now ask me how much you'll be paying for that tuxedo.

    Dare Devil, yes you...the guy who is playing with the candle on the table. Back off! Wool and flame don't mix. Nor does pool water and wool...shall I go on? Yes, how about being dragged by a large truck with you wearing my stores tuxedo. I don't want that back with rips and blood stains and for gods sake don't try and get out of paying for the replacement because your medical bills are to high. Should have thought about that before you were dragged.

    Return complainers, "Maybe if I complain when I return they will give me a little refund" Um...wrong! Fail!!! The time to complain is not after you have used the product. If there is something you don't like about the tuxedo make sure you let someone know when you come in for your final fitting.

    Tuxedo Mask,

    Don't you have the guys renting the tuxedos sign off on something that protects you from the aboved mentioned dilemmas? Please don't misunderstand, I don't agree with anybody who has zero regard for your property, but you do have some sort of protection, correct?

    Yes, we sure do...and we have had to start taking CC on all orders.
    When items come back unusable we now charge.

    Shirts seem to be a disposable items to these folks. Weekly I have to charge someone for a shirt.

    Shoes are another item. Folks leave the tuxedo in a hot car for a day or two, in tropical environments this melts the glue. Also beach weddings destroy shoes with the sand. The shoes comeback looking like someone took millions of tiny razor blades to it.

    In short, we get our money...but not before we get looks from the customers like we are evil. Have had a few push over my displays on the way out of the store and they were the ones who burned the shirt and coat with a candle.

    Just a reminder to the "Tuxedo Boys"......please don't forget to take your marijuana joints out of the pockets when returning the items to us..we do not wanted to get busted for your bad habits! Also make sure you wear underwear...shit on the pants is not permitted! Thank you! Tuxedo Shop Owner
