Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
At BT, we serve the gentlemen as well as the ladies who come into our boutique and we're happy to help the guy who knows what he's looking for as well as the one who doesn't have a clue. Both want to look their best and impress their dates - be it at prom or on his wedding day.
What if I Just Want to Rent?
We do sell tuxedos for those who want to buy, but most people want to rent and rentals are the majority of our tuxedo business. We don't carry tuxes in-stock at BT. We're a boutique that orders them for delivery, so you'll come in and select your style and get measured first.
Where Does My Tux Come From?
We order tuxes through Jim's Formal Wear - a national and reputable tux distributor - that works with independent boutiques like ours to outfit the guys who have a one-time need. Coordinating with JFW allows our customers to have a much larger selection to choose from, because they stock thousands of tuxes. Imagine coats spanning from a boy's 3T all the way to a men's 66, combined with 4 different jacket length sizes, in a variety of styles and, well, you need a warehouse or two. At BT, we have a small try-on section where guys can get a sense of fit and style.
What Happens When I Go to BT to Rent?
When you come into BT, the first thing we do is discuss what you need and what you're looking for. Is there a color that you like or that has been dictated by the event. We sit down with you and let you go through our JFW books to see all the styles and colors and check out prices. Our prices range from $65 to about $145 and that includes coat, pants, standard shirt, vest and tie.
Can I Wear Some "Flair?"
Yes. Along with your tuxedo kit (coat, pants, standard shirt, vest and tie), you can also add shoes, an upgraded shirt, pocket square, and socks. Those are extra little add-ons, but some guys like to coordinate their groomsmen or for prom.
We focus on the ladies, but the gentlemen who make the effort to look sharp are just as memorable at these big events, so get organized and come in to check out the many options you have.
