dressed to Marry! {Theodore 1922}

A bride has endless choices of bridal boutiques but where does a groom go to shop for a suit or tuxedo? In Toronto, Theodore 1922, where owner Miranda Black will greet you along with Chloe the friendly watch dog.
Chloe, the friendly watch dog
Back in September with just a little over a month till the wedding the groom was ready to go suit shopping. We decided that a suit and not a rental is the choice that made more sense. Originally, the groom wanted a grey suit. He looked around....One afternoon we both remembered a menswear shop in the Annex area of Toronto, eureka moment! Thinking it was close to closing time I called and Miranda answered, "how fast can you get here?". Basically, she stayed opened just for us. Having worked in retail myself I was so impressed with her personalized service and menswear knowledge we bought that night. I didn't think grooms had that feeling brides do when finding THE dress but he too had THAT moment. We settled on a black suit (which was tailored) by the brand Sand, a tuxedo shirt by ETON, and a black bow tie (did you know that bow ties are only to be worn after 5pm?). Who knew?

Do prefer a rental or owned suit/tuxedo?
