How long have you been in the wedding industry?
Menguin was founded in 2013.

What are your favorite wedding trends right now?
We love the slimmer fit tuxedos, and we are big fans of the blue tuxedo trend. When paired with the right accessories, a dark blue tuxedo can work any time of year. We also really like how guys are starting to personalize their wedding looks with colorful and creative accessories, whether it’s striped socks or a lollipop as a boutonniere.

What do you love most about working in menswear?
We enjoy the opportunity to make guys feel good and look good – whether it’s for a wedding, prom night or any special event. When you know you’re looking good in a great-fitting, modern tux, you feel good, and that confidence will make any guy enjoy his event even more.

What makes you unique from other outfitters?
Unlike other tuxedo rental companies, Menguin is all online. We don’t have any brick-and-mortar stores. No driving back and forth to a tuxedo store to get measured, picking up the tux, returning to the store if there’s a fit issue and then bringing the tuxedo back after the event.

We remove the hassle. We have 12 modern tuxedo styles (with more on the way!), and we deliver the tux right to your door 5 days before the event in our awesome tuxbox. After the event, you simply place the tux back in the box with the provided pre-printed shipping label, drop it off at FedEx and you are good to go.

We also have a fit algorithm that uses your measurements, height and weight to guarantee your tuxedo fits. If anything doesn’t fit exactly how you want it to, we overnight a complimentary replacement.

Tell us about your most memorable and fun groom/shopping experience.
We once had a customer who received pants that were too short. Not just a little too short – they went to right below the knee. They were hobbit pants! We of course sent a replacement pair of pants immediately that fit to a tee, and we included a DVD of The Hobbit in the box just for a little humor. The customer’s new pants fit perfectly, he appreciated how quickly we resolved the issue and he got a kick out of the DVD!

Tell us one thing we might not otherwise know about your company.
We have a rent a tux, save a penguin program. We believe in not just looking good, but doing good. A portion of the proceeds from every tuxedo we rent goes to help rescue penguins who are victims of oil spills.
