What kinds of events require tuxedos??

  • Wedding Parties

Brides and grooms have been choosing us for their special day for years, now.  Once you've set the date and decided on colors, it's really never to early to get started.  We recommend that both the bride and groom come in to register with us.  No appointment is necessary for wedding registrations, so whenever is most convienent for you is fine with us! Why pick out your tuxedo from a catalog. You can actually try coats, pants, shoes, etc. since our items are in stock. Here are a few things to remember. your dress white or ivory?  This is important when choosing a shirt color for your groom and his groomsmen.  Also, have you decided on colors for your bridesmaids?  If so, bring a swatch of the color to help match ties and vests.  Upon registering, the bride and groom will need to present a credit or debit card in order to secure the registration.  After you've made all the decisions, all that's left is for your groomsmen to come in to be measured.  Have a large party?  With 5 tuxedo rentals, the 6th is absolutely FREE!  In order for us to make good on this policy, all members of the party must be measured at least 3 weeks prior to your wedding date!  It is not necessary for the party to be measured at the same time.  Tell your guys to come in any time during regular business hours.  Don't forget to ask for out-of-town measurement forms, if any in your party live out-of-state.

  • Proms

Prom season is our busiest season of the entire year! That's why Skeffington's offers a free t-shirt when you order at least two weeks in advance, while supplies lasts. Often, several schools will schedule these events for the same day.  This can sometimes make for a limited inventory.  Because of this fact, tuxedos selections are often granted on a first come, first serve basis.  For particular dates, you may be asked to make a "second choice" for your prom tuxedo jacket or accessories, in the event that we do not have your first choice available.  Guys, it's a great idea to bring your date with you when selecting your prom tux.  If that's not possible, try to bring a color swatch of her dress, or even the dress itself.  Once you choose a tie and/or vest color, any changes during processing can be subject to a $5.00 service fee.  We also ask for your patience on pick-up days during this season.  Because of the incredibly large number of tuxedos that leave our store on these days, customers often experience longer than normal wait times for check out and final fitting.  All tuxedo rentals must be paid for in full before being taken into a dressing room.  Don't worry, we will still make any necessary adjustments.  Don't forget, Skeffington's can NOT guarantee any tuxedo not tried on by a client prior to his event.  We ask that you bare with us, as we always do our best to make your experience as convenient as possible. 

  • Cruises

We realize that you will need more than a one day rental for cruises, and we do offer a discounted rate for this type of extended rental.  The cruise package price begins at just $124.95 for a one-week rental.  Please note, that this price is for "basic tuxedos" ONLY.  Prices increase on upgraded tuxedos and are substantially increased for our "designer packages."
