Frequently asked questions
I live out of town, do I still need to get measured at Moments Tux Shop?
No, you don't have to get measured at Moments Tux Shop. While we prefer to measure you ourselves, you can get measured at any Jim's Formal Wear or Skeffington's Formal Wear authorized dealer. Cleck here to search for locations nearest you.
After you get measured, you can submit your measurements on our website by clicking
here or you can call us at (563) 888-1695.
I'm a groomsmen. How does the rental process work for me?
After the bride & groom have met with us, we will contact you via email or text message and introduce ourselves. Then you can stop in to Moments Tux Shop to get measured at your convenience, or book an appointment here to do so.
We would really like to measure you ourselves, as only we can provide you with the best fit for your suit or tux. Even if we need to do so after hours - we will. Just call us and let us know when you will be in town or when you need to come in and we'll do our best to accomodate you.
If coming to Moments Tux Shop is still not an option, we can help you find a place near you to get measured. You will be able to submit your measurements
HERE, right from the store you visit. You can also pay your deposit on our website or by calling us at (563) 888-1695.
You will be able to pick up your suit or tuxedo and try it on to make sure it's just right - early the week of the wedding, in our store. It's that easy!
And if you are coming in late in the week from out of town, PLEASE ask us about our
TUXDIRECT service, where we can have your suit or tux shipped directly to your home or work in plenty of time for you to try it on at home and feel confident in the fit, the week before the wedding!
Do I need to book an appointment for a Bridal Consultation? How soon?
We recommend scheduling your Bridal Consultation between 4 and 6 months before the big day. Some couples will see us a year in advance and others will save it until about 2 months before. We can handle your wedding no matter when - but at least 3 months is typical. It is easy to book an appointment - just call us or book your appointment online here!
Booking an appointment allows us to be prepared to spend the time with you when you come in. Often times, this can take about an hour to look through suit and tux styles, pick out colors, and designate those suits and colors to the roles of your wedding party.
The best time frame to choose your formal wear is after you have chosen the bride's dress, bridesmaids dresses, and overall color scheme. Once you have all of that, it's time to dress the guys! We have hundreds of colors to choose from, so if you have a sample color to match - bring that with you.
Make sure you schedule your bridal consultation with us a couple months ahead of your event, but ideally after you have determined who is going to be in your wedding. It is important to give your groomsmen, ushers, Dads, Grandfathers, etc. enough time to get measured and fitted before your event!
How much does it cost to rent a suit or tuxedo?
The rental cost varies depending on what you're looking for. While we do have a budget tuxedo, we pride ourselves on being a premium provider. We want you to look your very best! Moments Tux Shop offers top name brands like Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, Allure, Ike Behar, and more. If you're looking for a more slimming look, the price is higher than if you are going for a more relaxed and modern fit. Shoes are an additional $25 charge on top of the tuxedo rental.
What's the difference between a suit and a tuxedo?
The primary physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the presence of satin. Traditionally tuxedos have satin facing on the lapels and pocket trim. The other difference is a tuxedo has a cloth covered button, while a suit does not. Most people cannot tell the difference between them, so it's really personal preference. Whether you're getting married, going to Prom, or just want to dress up, either choice is absolutely acceptable.
Can I purchase my suit instead of renting?
Sure! We not only have the largest selection of suits and tuxes for rent in the Quad City area, but we also have purchase options available as well. These options are completely separate from the rental options. For this reason, we suggest that if it part of a wedding party dressed alike, you may want to consider doing all of the suits or tuxes the same way throughout the party. You can check out some options online or visit our showroom in Bettendorf to see and feel some great purchase options at a reasonable price.
When do I need to pay for my suit or tuxedo?
We ask for a $50 deposit for weddings and a $60 deposit for Prom and other single events at the time of your fitting. The remaining balance can be paid off when you pick up your suit or tuxedo. (TUXDIRECT customers will need to pay for the tux in full 3 weeks prior to the event so that we are able to send the suit or tux directly to your home or office with plenty of time to try it on before the event.
When can I get my tux?
If you are utilizing our TUXDIRECT services and have paid in full 3 weeks before the event, you will usually receive your suit or tuxedo over a full week before the event, but no later than the Tuesday the week of your event.
If you are picking up your rental at our shop, you will receive a text message to let you know that your suit or tuxedo is ready for pickup. This usually happens by Tuesday, the week of the event. It is important that you come right away to try on your suit or tux and make sure that everything fits the way it should. Coming in by Wednesday night ensures we can easily handle any alterations or replacements needed in plenty of time for the event.
What brands do you carry?
We carry a large assortment of brand names. Some name brands include Michael Kors, Allure, Kenneth Cole, IKE Behar, Ralph Lauren, and so many more.
We carry the largest selection of suits & tuxedos in the area, by far. And we also have the largest showroom so you'll be able to see and feel some of our best formalwear when you visit Moments Tux Shop in Bettendorf.
When is my rental due back?
At Moments Tux Shop, we believe in a day of rest. Our shop is closed on Sundays, giving our team more time with their families and at the same time - giving you more time to get your suit or tux back to the shop. Your rental is due Monday morning by 10:30am. This deadline is firm, but we offer 24-hour returns on the weekend. That's right - it couldn't be easier! Just bring your tux back anytime on Sunday or Monday morning. Leave it on the rack in the front of our store and text our Moments Tux Shop Text Line when you do, so we can record your rental as returned.
ALSO: Ask about our VIP Pickup Service, where Moments Tux Shop will pick up the suits and tuxes for your entire group, after the event or the next morning! (This is a favorite for Groomsmen all over the country!) This is one of Moments Tux Shop's signature premier services and one of the best ways to show you the "Moments Difference" that so many have come to know and love!

We think that you will notice from the first time you talk to us at an event or walk in to our store, that you will notice that we are different from the average tux shop or suit store.

We strongly believe in EARLY DELIVERY, meaning that at Moments Tux Shop you will never wait until the day before your event to get your tux.

We also offer services like our VIP Pickup, where we'll come to your event, your post-party, your hotel, or another designated location to pick up the tuxes after the event. (This is a favorite among groomsmen!) This is just one example of how Moments Tux Shop likes to think of ways to make things easier for our customers.
We utilize technology that other stores don't in an effort to make it simpler and easier for our customers. Examples of this are having a website where you can submit your measurements and pay deposits online and utilizing text messaging regularly to communicate messages such as when the tuxes are available, when they are due back, etc.
We hope you will allow Moments Tux Shop to show you how we can help with your wedding, prom, or special event. We don't take our customers for granted and appreciate the opportunity to serve. We truly believe that we are better than the others and look forward to the chance to show you why.
Do you handle formal wear for a quinceañera?
YES! We handle many quineaneras and the process is similar to a wedding. If you'd like to book an appointment to go over all of those options, you could do so in the same way as a Bridal Consultation.
