Hello-I have a son getting married and I have been tasked with helping the groomsmen get their clothing. We want them to be nice, not cheap, but none of the young men are on a big budget right now as several are college students. So, with that said, do you have suggestions for where we can shop for this? We are in Holly Springs. Also, I'd love to just send the guys over to a store to be fitted so we are sure to get the sizes right. They are doing white shirts, black pants, suspenders, bow ties, so a simple but nice look.

Whatever advice would be appreciated!

There's a formalwear outlet in Hillsborough that a lot of guys go to for prom. We ended up BUYING my son's prom tux as it was cheaper to buy it there than rent one anywhere! We figured he will need one at least once in college.

not at all local, but if you are looking for a super-affordable online option, I have had good luck with https://combatgent.com/. These will not be ultra-durable $600 suits that you can wear for years, but for a one-time event and maybe a few times after, for people on a budget these can be great options. I'd wager that buying a decent suit or tux from this place is cheaper than renting.

Get measured at any local tailor shop if needed, but usually sites like that will offer instructional notes or a video on how to do it yourself.
