How to Rent the Perfect Tux

As we barrel head-first into prom season, ladies are looking for the perfect dress online and in every boutique they pass. So much planning goes into every part of their ensemble for the big event! Entire industries focus on ladies’ formal attire needs, but too often men’s options for formal wear are neglected in special occasion planning. We immediately think of the basic black tuxedo, complete with the standard black bow tie and cummerbund when someone mentions men’s formal wear, and while that’s a great option, many men want options to show their individual tastes when it comes to dressing to impress.

As a lover of all things Scottish, especially beautiful tartan clothing and jewelry, I’ve been drooling over the Heritage of Scotland website for quite sometime.

For my fellow Whisky-lovers, Heritage of Scotland has a LARGE selection of flasks, Whisky decanters, leaded crystal drink ware, tankards and so much more that you will be dying to get for your collection. There’s a particular decanter that I have my eye on… If you see my husband, remind him that Christmas isn’t that far away. For those of you looking for items in your clan’s tartan, Heritage of Scotland has a very helpful section dedicated to locating just what you need. I was pleasantly surprised to find several versions of my own clan’s tartan (MacNeil of Barra) as well as a large variety of products available for purchase in that pattern. If it’s a kilt you’re after, Heritage of Scotland can either custom-make one for you, or you can choose from their large selection of ready-to-wear kilts. They also stock all of the…
