Golden Tuxedo – Topeka

One of the frequent wedding day challenges that come up seems to be problems with the men’s tuxedos. All of the formal wear providers ask that you try everything on before leaving the store but for one reason or another that doesn’t always happen. If something doesn’t fit on the wedding day it causes anxiety and delays in getting the photography done. The challenge is then further compounded if the provider doesn’t stock anything extra locally.

This is where a provider like Golden Tuxedo comes in. They guarantee the fit of the tuxedo’s you rent from them if they do the measurements. Golden Tuxedos carries in stock a full line of traditional tuxedos, shoes and accesories. In addition to that they have access through their marketing group a huge selection of the latest tuxedo designs.

Golden Tuxedo is a subsidiary of Hygienic Cleaners that was founded here in Topeka in 1944 by Paul Golden. Even today it is a family run Topeka business some 60+ years later. Some of the highlights of Golden are; free tuxedo pickup the day after the wedding, free wedding dress cleaning and preservation and they carry David’s swatch books so that they can match the bridesmaids dress colors to the men’s vests.

Golden prides themselves on being very price competitive with other formal wear providers in the area. They have a wide range of price points that they offer starting at $99. One option that they offer for around $150 is that instead of renting a tuxedo they will sell your groomsmen a very nice suit that they own. So many men today don’t own a suit, it is a very nice option. There is an example of a suit they sell in the 4th photo below.  Golden Tuxedo is well worth your time to visit when considering a formal wear provider for your wedding.  Ask for Brenda or JD when you go in and please tell them you found them here at weddingtopeka.com!

Golden Tuxedo / Hygienic Cleaners is located here in Topeka right across the street from Barrington Village Shopping Ctr. on 29th Street.  The address is: 2930 SW McClure Rd. Their website is www.goldentuxedo.com their phone number is: 785-230-8936
