Tuxedo’s come in a variety of shapes and styles. Each manufacturer seems to have their own take on this classic formal suit. As a dinner suit, the Tuxedo is normally a 2 piece black suit, with a satin lapel, and a satin stripe down the trousers. The wedding Tuxedo can be the same as the the dinner suit variety or slightly more fashionable with satin shawl collar, and no stripe on the outside of the trousers.

Tuxedo for your Wedding
Let’s speak the truth: people are more likely to say more about the attire worn by the bride than about the tuxes worn by the groom. That said, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t grab the chance to appear in your absolute best. It is after all, you’re wedding too! It’s also a fact that great groom fashion is known to start with great wedding tuxedo.
The groom is generally expected to wear tuxedo vest underneath a tuxedo jacket. You can wear a black waistcoat, or the more popular option is wearing a contrasting colour like silver grey or Ivory. You can also wear a tie/bow/cravat in the same material as the waistcoat to complete the outfit. The formal white shirt can be a dress shirt which comes with pleats and embroidery, or a plain double cuff shirt which can be worn with cufflinks.
It’s not only more affordable, but hiring a tuxedo from Con Murphy’s Menswear is more prudent.
Before starting your tuxedo rental search in Cork, it’s important to understand some basics about tuxedos and weddings.
By far, the black tuxedo is the easiest one to coordinate properly, as well as the most versatile when it comes to your accessories colour options. Commonly, the man will go for a matching pocket square and neck-wear to go along with the attire. White, silver, ivory, and platinum are all sophisticated and safe vest colours. For wedding parties, other popular shades are red/claret, the more vibrant turquoise, as well as the darker, deeper, red wine colour.
Tuxedo Hire/Rental Tips
There are lots of different reasons why you would want to dress in a tux, and that is why Con Murphy’s wants to ensure that you are looking your best. While looking for the perfect tuxedo rental, keeping the above basics will make the task of choosing much easier. Here at Con Murphy’s Menswear, our joy is when you appear at your best and feel it too. Whether it’s your wedding, a friend’s wedding or a black tie event, you cannot get better tuxedo rental services in Cork.
That’s also why we have developed the following tips on tuxedo do’s and don’ts.
Get the Correct Tuxedo Accessories
Avoid belts when wearing a tuxedo. Instead, go for trousers that can take braces. Also steer clear of shoes with too many details such as wingtips as they are too sporty. For a tux, only put on a bow tie as neckties come out too business-like.
Avoid Department Stores when looking for a Tuxedo
Some of the larger department stores offer tuxedo hire as a smaller portion of their core business, such as a bridal shop. They may even have a catalogue that they present to the customer to select their choice tuxedo. However, they most likely are deficient when it comes to qualified, experienced and friendly staff to guide you through the selection process or they could be lacking in terms the actual tuxedo inventory. What looks stunningly great in a catalogue or magazine page may turn out to be an ill-fitting garment in real life. We want to help you avoid that when you visit Con Murphy’s Menswear store in Cork.
Save Money Hiring Tuxedos in bulk
If you are renting tuxedos for a wedding, have all the groomsmen order theirs from the same rental place so that you all perfectly match. You could also get a discount from the store as well for such an order. Again, it’s important they you all order your tuxedos well in advance and not wait until the last days.
Hire from Professionals
Similar to hiring from different rentals, it could be a grave error to hire from a shop that is not well stocked. Also avoid any rental that will not have the tuxedo ready ahead of time so that you can have a chance of trying it on. Stores with little inventory may be overwhelmed during a busy season or weekend. To avoid that, our store in Cork makes sure the tux is ready well in advance to ensure it fits you well and matches your order expectations.

I recently got in touch Tom a couple of weeks ago regarding a holy communion suit for my son. Tom was so helpful from start to finish offering great advice and going above and beyond to help me find the perfect communion suit. Under the current circumstances it is hard to shop for clothes online but there was never any issue with me returning any item of clothing that I bought. I will definitely be recommending Tom to all my friends and family. Thanks again for all your help. Jean Pigott

Got my wedding suit from this shop. The staff is very friendly and professional, I was actually impressed. The suit is also perfect, I'll use it many times (I went for something that can be reused quite easily, not the wedding only kind). If you need to look sharp and all business-like, this is the place for you in Cork!

Amazingly well stocked, family owned store with incredibly attentive staff. We were so pleased with the service offered and we left with a beautiful suit, unique and well fitted. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning in the future. A wonderful staple of Cork city!
