Ambassador's Formalwear by Gilda
We were referred to Gilda's from a family friend swearing for great service. The first meeting my Husband met with Gilda and was very pleased. He picked out everything he wanted for himself and the groomsmen as well as for the fathers and grandparents. A month or so later My mother and I along with my husband went to actually order them to find out Gilda was out and we had a very young lady help us. She knew little to nothing about the products that we had already picked out , saying they were no longer available. We would ask questions and she would simply state "I don't know about that " or "I'm not sure" While placing the order she over talked us , and in the end, she wrote down all of the wrong information where the vests, ties, shoes did not match. We had a checked vest with a stripped tie! We were quoted one price by Gilda and paid about $50 more in the end . We received the tuxes and suits and were not impressed at all as well. My husbands pant legs were two different lengths as well as the sleeves - which turned out to be a problem in most of them. ( One of her other helpers did not even measure inseams) We paid quite a bit of money just to have my mother the night before the wedding hemming pants and sleeves. The jackets for the grooms were too big , that they covered the vest ( so it just looked as if they were wearing suits) Such a mess and we were rather unhappy with the services and the products. We are convinced if Gilda were aware and helped with the process we would have had better service, but her two hired help were useless and did not know the business and could possibly be ruining Gilda's bushiness' name. Beware!!
We really had a great experience working with Gilda, Priscilla, and everyone at Ambassador Formalwear. They have a great selection, and were very easy to work with. Also, the prices are quite reasonable. I will be sure to choose them again when the need arises!
Gilda and her team were great! She was a lot of fun to meet and work with. She gave us great advice on the tuxes for our my dad, groom and five groomsmen. And her team kindly and persistently followed up with our groomsmen who had not turned in their measurements on time. We are very thankful for Gilda and her team's excellent service.
We used this vendor as a place to find the groom's and the groomsmen's tuxes. We were helped very quickly and she basically did anything she could to help us out when the groom, the bride and the bride's family were in the store. I received mix feelings about her from each of the groomsmen though, about her being slightly "too friendly" with them, but I wasn't there. I would recommend her, but bring the bride or the girlfriends of the groomsmen! Ha!
After all, she's been in the Formalwear business for over 28 years, so it is a proven fact that she knows what she's doing.
