Getting tuxes from Skeffingtons was so simple! I picked out my tux style, listed off the wedding party and Skeffingtons kept me informed as to who still needed to be fitted. Pick up and drop off went smoothly and the guys looked great!

We had some sizing issues. One person was given two different shoe sizes... 8.5 and 10.5. The person working said that mistakes are not made and that it has to be incorrect. The customer showed him the shoes and he was rude about it. Also, two people had incorrect pant sizes... two of the gentleman had to wear suspenders to keep the pants up.

Tuxes looked great and prices were reasonable, just disappointed in the incorrect sizing for 3 different people.

Initially, I was impressed by the effort Chris made to handle my questions and concerns. After he left and after I agreed to reserve my suits with Skeffington's in Cedar Rapids the attitude of those in the store changed. I came in once before picking my suit up to ask if I could compare some ties with the suit I had chosen and I was told that they would not be willing to change the manikin because it "takes over an hour just to change them."
I couldn't believe she was the store manager. It was hard for me understand that although Chris did it in only five minutes the first time I came in, they would not do something so little to make sure I would look good for my big day, especially when the only time I would get to see what I looked like in the outfit would be the day before. What's more, there was nobody but me in the store and two employees, one who said it had been "dead" all day. In addition, others in my party who had been fitted told me they had similar prickly experiences with the staff. When we went to pick up the suits, one groomsman told the manager he was missing a tie and she said,"Well they were in the bag when they arrived so..."
I don't know what she was implying but there wasn't a tie and she did eventually order one which we picked up the next morning. I went to Davenport twice to do the same thing and they were amazing, in fact they searched Youtube videos to find different ways for me to tie my tie.However, in Cedar Rapids, IA the price was good, the suits looked great, but the service was bad...recommend-people-don't-go-there bad.

Brian-
We apologize for the service you received in our Cedar Rapids store. This is not how we train our employees and we definitely do not condone this type of behavior. We will be meeting with management from that store location to discuss this particular event. Once again, we sincerely apologize for any bad service you received. Let us know if there is ever anything we can do for you.
