FAQ's

WHEN SHOULD I PLACE MY ORDER FOR TUXEDOS?
        It is never too early to register your group with Prince Albert.  We suggest that you make your 
        arrangements for your tuxedos 2 - 3 months prior to your wedding so that you can take advantage
        of our full selection of tuxedos and accessories. However, people often register tuxedos 5 - 6
        months prior to the event.  Be assured that we do have an extensive line that can accommodate 
        even last minute events.
 

DO YOU OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF FRESH UP-TO-DATE STYLES?
        We have the most extensive stock of tuxedos and accessories in the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City 
        area.  You'll see current styles by all the latest designers.

Will Prince Albert's accessories match the hottest designer dress colors?
       You bet!  We have all the latest designer colors to match those designer dresses.  Anything you 
         want, we can get!

SOME OF MY GROOMSMEN LIVE IN DIFFERENT CITIES.  HOW CAN WE GET THE SAME 
   TUXEDOS?
        The only way to guarantee the tuxes will all be the same is to order everyone's tuxedo from Prince 
        Albert. Have your "out of town" groomsmen click on the "Submit Measurements" tab on this 
        website to locate a professional tuxedo shop in their area.  The groomsman then visits that store to 
        be measured, and then submits the measurements directly to Prince Albert Tuxedos via email 
        located on the same tab on this website.

        If you prefer, we can give the groom "out of town" measurement cards to give to his party.  
        Then they visit any tuxedo or menswear store in their own area to be measured, and send the card 
        back to our location by mail, fax phone or email.  Either way, the tuxedo will be ready and waiting 
        for the groomsman/usher/dad when he comes to town for the wedding.

        With any measurement coming from another source, it is always prudent to have the groomsman 
        come to Prince Albert as soon as they get to town to try on their tuxedo. The tuxedos are ready as 
        many as 3 days prior to the wedding date, so just call our store to assure it is ready, then have 
        them come in for a final fitting.  If alterations are needed, they can then easily be completed sooner 
        than later, saving you time as the big day approaches.

WHERE IS THE TUX COMING FROM?
        Our tuxedos are located right here in CEDAR RAPIDS, so you don't have to worry about last 
        minute orders or changes. Only Prince Albert Tuxedos are stocked locally!

DO YOU OFFER A FINAL FITTING?
        At Prince Albert, you will receive a fast, hassle free final fitting to ensure you look great in your 
        tuxedo!

WHEN CAN THE TUX BE PICKED UP?
        You can pick up your tuxedos as many as three days prior to your event, saving you time as the 
        wedding day approaches.

CAN THE GROOM WEAR A DIFFERENT TUXEDO THAN THE GROOMSMEN AND USHERS?
        Yes, the groom can wear whatever style he chooses, and the rest of the party can be coordinated 
        to compliment the groom.  Another thing that may vary are the accessories.  For example, if the 
        male attendants are wearing colored vests, the groom could wear white or black to set himself 
        apart.

CAN I TRY THE TUXEDO ON BEFORE I DECIDE ON A PARTICULAR STYLE?
        Of course...at Prince Albert you can see yourself in the tuxedo that is just right for you.  As soon as 
        you have a style and accessories in mind, we can have your size at one of our stores to try on 
        before you make your final choice.

WHAT ABOUT LAST MINUTE ALTERATIONS?
        We have the expertise and equipment to perform fast, convenient, in-store alterations.

DOES PRINCE ALBERT TUXEDOS HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO HANDLE MY WEDDING?
        Over 80 years of Prince Albert history proves we can withstand the test of time. We have, and 
        always will, guarantee your complete satisfaction.

IF I HAVE A PAIR OF BLACK DRESS SHOES, CAN I WEAR THOSE?
        Formal shoes are patent leather.  High glossed black leather shoes may be worn, but for a truly 
        formal event, patent leather is recommended.

IS PRINCE ALBERT TUXEDOS A LOCALLY OWNED COMPANY?
        Yes.  Prince Albert Tuxedos was started in Cedar Rapids by the Albert family in 1927.  It is now 
        owned and operated by John Albert, Jr., the third generation Albert to operate the formal 
        wear business.  Being a locally owned business, we care about our customers satisfaction.  They 
        are our friends and neighbors!
