Once the first notes of “Here comes the bride” begin, all eyes will move down the aisle to where the beautiful bride is making her entrance. However, it’s the groom who the guests will be looking to with excitement and anticipation of nuptials. For this reason, it’s important for the groom to dress in something that makes him stand out from the crowd. A tuxedo will do just that.
At Sir Knight Tuxedos, Trent Tutt and his staff combine the services of a personal shopper with the convenience and affordability to be the leading men’s formal wear provider. From the latest fashions to timeless classics, Sir Knight offers a full selection of tuxedos and accessory rentals to help their clients dress for any occasion – from proms, quinceañeras, black tie affairs and yes, weddings!
“Fashions change, but Sir Knight’s commitment to excellent customer service does not.”
For more than two decades, Sir Knight has been outfitting men for special events. The business is the oldest locally owned men’s formal wear operation in East Texas. Trent purchased the business from its founder in 2008, and has enjoyed it every step of the way. “We enjoy what we do. It’s exciting being a vital part of our customer’s important events in the different stages of their lives. We start with their school events and end with their weddings,” says Tutt.
“It’s also rewarding to witness our customer’s confidence boost from the tuxedo attire we provide them.”
Tutt said one thing that sets Sir Knight apart from other formal wear businesses is their wide selection of merchandise. They carry the largest local inventory in East Texas. “We have a vast selection of tuxedos with different style choices along with many color accessories. Due to our large inventory, we are able to provide the latest trend in the fashion industry at the lowest price.”
When visiting Sir Knights, a customer will first have a consultation with one of the courteous representatives on hand. Then the customer will be measured and fitted. Once the order is complete, the customer will try their tuxedo and accessories on to make sure that everything is correct and satisfactory. “We strive to ensure that all of our customers receive a positive and pleasant experience,” Tutt added.
Even the bride can utilize the acclaimed tuxedo shop! Tutt invites all brides to get involved in the process by bringing a color swatch or two. “This helps coordinate groomsmen with bridesmaids looks,” he said.”It is also helpful for us if we can have all names in the bridal party.”
