I was informed on the morning of my nephew's afternoon wedding that the affair would be black-tie. Searching for an emergency rental tux, I phoned several formal wear stores and their reaction was typically disbelief or laughter. I was about to give up before I phoned Bonardi's. Lori informed me that I could drive to their Worcester location and get fitted within 20 minutes. True to her word, I had the whole tuxedo, including cufflinks in 20 minutes. Lori treated me in a respectful and efficient manner. The tux fit perfectly and looked great. I received a number of compliments. So thank you, Lori, and I recommend Bonardi's to anyone needing a tuxedo.
We had a really great experience working with Bonardi's. For our wedding in June 2012, our party/family rented 5 tuxes (groom, 2 groomsmen, 2 dads) and one suit. Not all tux rental places also rent suits, so this was a plus. They also have all the clothes there, so if something doesn't fit, they can swap it for a matching item in a different size on the spot. This is another plus. They are located in downtown Worcester, but have plenty of on street parking (an adjacent side street) as well as their own small parking lot. Lori in the Worcester store helped us, and she was phenomenal. She was knowledgeable about all the outfit options (tux material, type of shirt collar, etc) and was very helpful as my fiance selected different color vests for the dads vs the groomsmen vs the groom (this hadn't occurred to us till we talked to Lori). She was also efficient and incredibly pleasant. I saw her 3 times, when my fiance and my dad each got measured and also when my fiance picked up his tux. She remembered us from our first meeting months earlier. Bonardi's is also very concerned with a good fit for their rentals. Upon pick-up, the guys all tried on their outfits to make sure they fit well/were comfortable (they didn't just get handed a garment bag and get sent on their way). Also, the guy renting the suit had fluctuating weight throughout the course of a day due to a health issue, and Lori said if he was at the upper range of the size pant he'd measured for, she would let him take two different size pants to ensure he would be comfortable all day. This turned out not to be necessary, but was an incredibly thoughtful offer. The guys all looked fabulous, and the service we received from Lori and her colleagues was superb each time. I highly recommend Bonardi's.
