Before launching Pursuit in 2011, owner Nate DeMars looked around and saw a million places to buy a suit, but nearly all fell into two categories; one-size-fits all spots, where you basically help yourself, or pricey and pretentious places that catered to the fashion elite, willing to spend a ton. Pursuit was formed to provide a stylish, modern alternative that focused on top-notch service and approachable advice without the luxury price tag.
More importantly, Nate wanted to cater to those frustrated with spending money on an ill-fitting rental.
“I’ve always thought renting tuxedos is a waste of money, but I still wanted all of the guys to match, so I thought Pursuit was a perfect blend of being able to get what I wanted without breaking the bank.” – Max, Pursuit Groom
At Pursuit, we’re big believers in purchasing your suit or tux for your big day, but we understand it can be difficult navigating the pros and cons of renting versus buying. Here are three purchasing pros you should consider as you shop:
1. Better Style and Better Fit
We help you find the exact style to fit your vision. With specially curated wedding styles and options, we tie everything together by expertly tailoring it to fit you perfectly. Unfortunately, when you rent your suit or tux, you cannot get it altered or tailored. However, when you buy from Pursuit, you get the suit tailored to fit, which makes for outstanding photos you’ll have for years to come.
We offer seven suits and tuxedos in two fits, a full range of sizes, dress shirts, ties, bow ties, socks, shoes, belts, and all the accessories you need to round out the look from head to toe. Choosing your outfit has never been easier, or more stylish.
2. Something to Show for Your Money
If you’re going to spend the money, shouldn’t you have more than one day to show for it? With suits starting at $299, we don’t believe a great experience needs to come with a luxury price tag. At Pursuit, we pride ourselves on great products and fits you’ll wear for years to come. Here’s how it works: select the products and styles to fit your vision, get them tailored to fit perfectly and give your wedding party something they’ll be happy to keep and wear for not much more than an ill-fitting rental. Not to mention, we even offer discounts based on the size of the group you bring in.
3. An Experience
Through the years, we have been humbled by the number of couples who have chosen to make us a part of one of their biggest days by outfitting their wedding. We have worked hard to build a collection of products just for you and to make getting your wedding suits more than just an item on your checklist but rather a unique, meaningful, and fun experience.
Grooms often make their private wedding fitting a part of a fun day in the neighborhood, and the group fitting makes for very little coordinating on the part of the groom. It’s easy and fun! That’s exactly why it’s important for us to make getting your group outfitted at Pursuit an experience with our after hours private wedding fitting parties, lounge with drinks, and our photo booth at our Columbus location.
