Featured Friend : Street Tuxedo

In preparation for next week's Open House + Fashion Show, we are delighted to introduce you to the fine Nashville wedding vendors who have graciously partnered with us to make this event a night to remember ....

Today's featured friend is Street Tuxedo, the family-owned business...they are your go-to tux shop for the best looking groomsmen in town! :)

How long have you been in business? 25 Years this year...we are very excited about that!
Who IS Street Tuxedo and who does what? Street Tuxedo is a local tuxedo shop owned by the "Street" family. Mark Street - owner and founder of the business, Dick Thompson - director of operations, John Street - owner and head of the Murfreesboro location, and then there is me, Rachael, I run the Green Hills location and keep the boys in check. ;)
Are you seeing trends or themes in colors? Gray tuxedos are a newest trend this year. Tan suits with a bright colored ties are popular for summer weddings. But most of the weddings we have done lately are sticking to the classics such as "White Tie" and "Tails", White dinner jacket with self-tie bows, and Classic black tuxes with black neck ties.
Who is your favorite designer right now? Joseph Abboud is one of the top designers of our collections, it's the groom's favorite because of its comfortable feel and elegant look.
If you had one piece of advice regarding formal menswear for the bride, what
would it be? Add a personal touch that will show off your personality.... remember that it's all about you on your big day! We have some grooms that provide ties for the groomsmen as gifts, rather than renting a tie. We have also had special requests to have custom ties made by our in-store designer "Otis James"...Remember to always be mindful in your formalwear selection, you definitely don’t want to look back at your wedding photos 20 years from now and regret that "light blue tuxedo".
In your spare time, what do you do? In my spare time I make diaper/tote bags... I deal with such manly stuff all day that I find it refreshing to make girly bags when I get a free minute
What is your vision for the Open House + Fashion Show? To showcase Street Tuxedo's newest location and to celebrate our identity as a small business and in that spirit, thank our customers for shopping locally.
Street Tuxedo is located at 2209 Bandywood Drive - in the same courtyard as yours truly! :)
They also have locations in Murfreesboro and Cool Springs. They are providing Menswear for the Fashion Show next Thursday!!!
