When you want quality, look further than your own backyard (or country).  G. Alexander l.l.c. proudly debuted its collection of made in the U.S.A. tuxedos at the International Formalwear Association Expo 30 in Las Vegas.

Michael Priest, managing partner and director of sales, says this about the new label: “Choosing to manufacture our tuxedos in the USA was an easy choice. . . Making tuxedos in America gives us the ability to work side by side with the designers, seamstresses and everyone involved in the process.”

The collection reflects classic styling with a dash of modern updating, displaying the finest American craftsmanship, according to a press release.  The G. Alexander Tuxedo Collection doesn’t pay for celebrity endorsers, but rather chooses to put those funds into the product.

Grooms, look for samples to begin showing up in tuxedo rental stores and bridal shows across the country in December 2011.  G. Alexander tuxedo rentails will be available in February 2012.

If you’re planning a 2012 wedding, couples might consider this new formalwear label that supports American workers.

Black by Vera Wang Tuxedos To Launch at Men’s Warehouse

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Vera Wang and Men's Warehouse partner for new formal menswear collection.

Brides to be, there’s some good news for your groom. Say “goodbye” to the standard tuxedo rental because Vera Wang is expanding into formal menswear. In an exclusive partnership with Men’s Warehouse, the new label is called “Black by Vera Wang.”

Fashion icon Vera Wang may be known for her dramatic bridal gowns, but that will soon change. Men’s Wearhouse, one of the largest men’s specialty apparel retailers in the U.S., will debut the Black by Vera Wang collection, hailed as “exceptional quality rental tuxedos at an accessible price point.”

The inaugural collection will offer two modern tuxedo styles, with one style in black and another in gray. Both tuxedos will feature a contemporary fit, including a slightly shorter 30.5″ coat length and narrow 2 1/2″ lapel.  Ultra-lightweight fabrication will allow for a superior drape and luxe feel.

The black tuxedo will feature a two-button notch, grosgrain lapel with side vents, and flat-front pant with a grosgrain stripe detail. The gray style will include a two-button, satin edge notch lapel with side vents and a classic, flat-front pant.

The opening price point for the rental collection is $219.99 for a complete outfit, with both styles offered in standard fit, slim fit and “big & tall” sizing.

“For more than twenty years, I have shared my design vision with women around the world, so it is exciting to now have the opportunity to share that with men as well,” Vera Wang said in a press release. “With an exceptional reputation as one the largest men’s specialty retailers, Men’s Wearhouse was a natural retail partner for the Black by Vera Wang collection.”

The Black by Vera Wang collection will launch exclusively in all Men’s Wearhouse retail stores in the U.S .and Moores Clothing for Men retail stores in Canada in late Spring 2012.

“Men’s Wearhouse has always been a leader in the men’s specialty retail industry, and this exclusive partnership will allow us to continue providing our customers with high quality and reputable brands,” said Doug Ewert, CEO of Men’s Wearhouse, Inc.

For best man and groomsmen gifts, such as personlized cuff links, men’s travel cases, beer steins, ties and pocket watches, visit Advantage Bridal. We also carry tuxedo shoes, groom accessories and groom t-shirts.

Reception Ideas: Groom Cake & “Man Food”

Monday, May 30th, 2011

More grooms are adding their two cents when it comes to wedding planning. Guys who want to infuse their personality into the big day are doing so with groom cakes and wedding food choices for the reception. For example, take Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who married former TV reporter and beauty queen Candice Crawford over Memorial Day weekend. With more than 600 guests (many of them NFL players), wedding planner Todd Fiscus added an All-American menu aptly dubbed “man food,” which included a pizza bar and short ribs. Guests received a goodie bag with a Neiman Marcus gift card, a mini bottle of Moet champagne, Dude Sweet Chocolate, gourmet popcorn, chips and salsa, and “Killer Pecans.” Sounds like a good time! Add your personality to the wedding cake with a fun bride and groom cake topper. For unique groom gifts, groom apparel and baseball caps, and groom accessories, visit Advantage Bridal.
