Take a moment to think about the typical process of buying a car. You generally shop around until you find one that you like, and once you’ve made your selection, you usually take it for a test drive, right? It’s kind of the same idea with the home try-on. You visit our website; you choose items that you’d like to wear for the big day; you test drive the look and experience.

What is a Home Try-On?

Our Home Try-On program is designed especially for brides and grooms to test out a look before the big day. A Home Try-On well before the wedding allows the couple to try out different looks and fits to see what is best for them. We want you to get the exact look you want and look as fantastic as you possibly can for this momentous occasion.

Once you pick out a look, the order will be shipped for free to you and you will have 48 hours to try everything on and send it back. Your personal stylist will be in touch to make sure everything is just right.

A Home Try-On, however, is not for groomsmen or other members of your party. It’s just to help the bride and groom decide on the looks for the day. Everyone’s suit or tuxedos will be delivered 14 before your event to ensure there is plenty of time to fix any fit issues. If you have additional concerns regarding your Home Try-On or the fit of other members of your party, please contact customer experience.

HOW DO YOU SIGN-UP?

  • Visit our Home Try-On page and then click, ‘Start Home Try-On.’
  • Time to build your look. Select the first button ‘Tuxedos & Suits,’ which will show you the collection. If you had previously ordered swatches and know exactly which color/style you prefer, just match the color name. If you are still on the fence, you can filter the items by category and color.
  • Once you click the suit or tuxedo you are interested in, it will take you back to ‘Build a Look.’ Here you can customize your home try-on further.
  • ‘Shirts’ you can filter these as well by category, pattern, and color.
  • With ‘Ties’ you can filter and narrow your options by category, pattern, and color on the left side.
  • For ‘Vest & Cummerbund’ we auto select the matching vest to your suit or tuxedo. If you wish to change it, you can do so here. If you opt to not try on a vest you can click the ‘X’ in the upper right-hand corner. You can filter the vests and cummerbunds by category, pattern, and color.
  • And ‘Shoes’ we have three options to choose from. If you wish to not try on our shoes just be sure to click the ‘X’ in the upper right-hand corner.
  • After you’ve made your selections for your home try-on, be sure to save your look.

Fit Profile

After saving your look, you will be asked a series of fit related questions.

  • How tall are you?
  • How much do you weigh?
  • How old are you?
  • What is your shoe size? You will want to select the type and shoe size you usually wear.
  • What is your jean waist? You will want to input your usual jean waist size. This number can vary based on brand (we understand) just use your best judgment.
  • How would you describe your build? We ask for a stomach profile: flat, average or rounded; also build profile: thin, average or muscular. Use your best judgment if you are unsure.
  • How do you prefer your suits to fit? Here you will select ‘Modern’ (standard fit, flatters most body types) or ‘Slim’ (close-fitting, shorter coat, and tapered pant legs).

SHIPPING AND CARD INFO

You’re almost finished! Here you will want to input your shipping information. We do ask for a valid credit or debit card for your order. The Home Try-On is free. We will authorize your card for the value of the Home Try-On. You will only be charged if you do not return the outfit.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU KNOW?

Once you receive the Home Try-On you will want to try on all of your items immediately. You’ll have 48-hours from delivery to try your outfit out. We will have a personal stylist reach out to you to discuss your experience and any fit changes you might have. If something feels off, we ask you to document those issues with photos. This will help your personal stylist better understand your concerns and provide solutions.

Once you’re finished with the Home Try-On, you package everything back up; apply the prepaid return shipping label included in your box, and drop the box off at the nearest UPS store.
