Oh, old school Madonna. So catchy! And your arms don't terrify me.
Anyway, the final people we have to dress in the wedding party are Mr. C and the groomsmen. This process was way less painful then dressing the girls (shocking, I know!).
Mr. C emailed me one day that he had been exploring suits on Macys.com and found a great deal on a tux. One call to Best Man M, and the three of us were on our way to Macy's to check it out. Mr. C grabbed his size, went into the fitting room, and a decision was quickly made.
Easy peasy. The tux was on sale for an unreal price so Mr. C scooped it up without hesitation.
Unfortunately, Mr. C started working out more regularly a little while ago and has bulked up a bit. When he put the tuxedo back on, it was a little tighter on his shoulders. We're not really sure if this is going to be an issue, whether Mr. C will have to stop working out, or can exchange for another size, so to be safe, we went to Men's Warehouse to pick out the tuxes for the rest of the groomsmen, as well as to have Mr. C measured in case he opts to rent.
Mr. C's choice was pretty simple, as this was the only tux they provided that had everything Mr. C was looking for (I honestly had no idea about some of this stuff - different notches in the lapel? Sureeeee, that one is best!).
Although Men's Warehouse was a clear choice for us based on the ease of everyone being able to get in for measurements, as well as proximity to our wedding location, the guy we worked with was a total over-seller (I thought Mr. C's mom was going to slap him after we'd been there for awhile - he kept telling Mr. C that "Jenny has been planning this day when she was 3, so we want to be sure she's happy."...Dude, it's his wedding too). We went two weeks ago, and Mr. C has already received 3-4 phone calls "just to check in." I don't think we really have an option to choose anywhere else though, so this is going to be an annoyance we have to put up with. Has anyone else experienced the hounding that we are?
So just like that, the men's tuxedos have been picked. We still aren't sure if they will wear a tie or a bowtie, but if that is the biggest concern we have, I'm really not concerned at all.
Did you find menswear to be a much easier decision to make than for the girls? What was the worst salesperson experience you have ever had?
