Do a Google search for “tuxedo shops in the El Paso area.” You will see quite a list on a number of resulting pages. Start clicking on links for the first couple of pages and determine which websites exhibit a tuxedo shop that is professional and worth checking into.

They will more than likely have a shop or two to tell you about. And, of course, you just can't beat good old word of mouth.

This is very important because, in the end, it is really the measurements and the alterations that will make a tuxedo look like it is perfect for the person wearing it. Find out how long it will take to have your tuxedo read and when you can pick it up. When will your tuxedo be due back? Do you have confidence that the consultant knows what they are talking about in terms of styles, colors, ties, cummerbund, etc?
