Out of business ran off with my money – My friend selected this place to do the tuxedos for his wedding. I went to get fitted and pay, when the girl helping me said that they would offer a 10% discount if I paid by check I stupidly bit. Within weeks they've closed up shop.
Now myself and the rest of the groomsmen are out of luck with the tuxes and I'm out $300. Thanks a lot bud.
Stay away if they ever reopen.
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE – ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE SERVICE/BUSINESS.
Three months before our wedding we went to make arrangements during business hours. They were closed, with no explanation offered.
When we finally caught them at their convenience and they took the groom
SCAM ARTIST! BEWEAR! – I'm posting on Rik's Atlanta site due to the fact that he recently closed his store in Los Angeles rather suddenly and without notice to his clients whom he still owes money! Below is what I went through with him at his Los Angeles location. I also think the positive reviews on here are fake.
I was given a gift from a friend from Gilt City for 2 custom made shirts by Rik Ducar. Like Creek, my experience was unpleasant form the start. I've worked in the high-end fashion industry for over 13 and can tell you that Rik knows little about fashion, textiles or fit. While trying on a "fit shirt" to get my measurement, I had to keep reminding him about sleeve width and making sure it was and athletic fit (higher in the underarm).
After selecting my fabric (which I was disappointed with the selection), I was given the time frame for the shirts to be made. Let me bring up another point; I was told it would take 6 weeks to make 2 shirts... You can get a custom made suit from Prada made in Italy and ready in-store in 2 months. But I was in no hurry so I was fine with the timeline. 8 weeks past and I heard nothing from Rik. I called the store several times with no response. I finally got ahold of Rik a week later and he said he will check on the order and call me back. That never happened. I then receive an email a few days later stating that he was having a dispute with his shirt maker, but it was resolved and the orders would be filled in the coming weeks. That never happened. 3 1/2 months later, with no communication from Rik, I emailed him that his business practices was unacceptable and that I wanted a refund. Again no word back and another email about his supplier. I wrote back that I no longer cared about the shirts and didn't want to ever do business with him again and that I was going to contact Gilt and inform then of his business practices. I then received and email apologizing for the delay and said that I would get a refund. He also asked that I not inform Gilt. Is he kidding me?
It is not 7 months later and while I did get my money back from GIlt, I have yet to receive the money I paid for the "better" fabric selection I made. I truly wonder if the positive experiences written about Rik Ducar on here are real... somehow I think not. BEWARE.
A Great Experience! – A friend recommended Kate to us after his great experience. We were looking for groomsman suits and got much more from Kate than just the suits. She emailed swatches and pictures of suits, she contacted all the groomsman, handled all the sizing and payments (which isn't easy to do with 10 guys) and shipped all the suits directly to them. The entire experience was hassle free and we live in Florida. The suits were beautiful too!!
The Only Place to get a Tuxedo in Atlanta!!!!!! – When I started my search for a Tuxedo, for my wedding this past May, I knew I didn’t want your standard off-the-rack rental. I knew I wanted a custom European fit tuxedo, but had no idea where I would find one in Atlanta. I tried going to your typical rental shops, but they offered a Sean John tuxedo as their most stylish tuxedo. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against P-Diddy, but a hip hop cut is not the same as an European cut.
Next, I tried Saks and Nieman Marcus, but they only sell a few tuxedos a year, and just don’t have that much to choose from. I literally thought I was going to have to fly to New York or LA to find exactly what I was looking for, until did a search on the internet and came across LeTux, now Rik Ducar.
Aftet getting an appointment I was immediately surprised with their level of customer service. Kristen Blackmon, their Director of Style, really laid out the red carpet treatment for me upon my arrival. Not only was she able to order exactly what I wanted, but she literally had the tuxedo shaped down for me so that it fit exactly like I wanted it to. She even had a custom shirt made for me from my measurements. Kristen even met me the day of my wedding to tie my bowtie because I couldn’t get it right.
People usually say the wedding is all about the Bride, but my experience at Rik Ducar made me feel as if a little more than a small portion was about me too! I highly recommend Rik Ducar if you looking to get that perfect tuxedo.
Menswear experience that surpassed expectations – I got married last year in Atlanta and came across this men's shop while looking for tuxes for my fiancee. We had been to the big names-J.A. Banks, Mens Wearhouse, even Nordstrom. And nothing was like Rik Ducar-then "Le Tux".
The store is beautiful, the service is unsurpassed, and the clothing is high value. The girls in shop really know their stuff- we worked with Kate- and took the time to educate my husband and make it fun for him. I was so surprised with their ability to find a unique, modern, and classy look for him that fit perfectly at an amazing price!! She took the time to ensure he felt special for our wedding day.
This is truly a unique business-very geared toward men. I went back and bought a last-minute business suit as a Christmas gift, and was welcomed back and given the same service as before- and THANKED for my business which is so rare these days. These girls know menswear and provide wardrobe consulting as well!
No better place for menswear, either formal or day-to-day- I'll be spreading the word!
The ladies here were so helpful and really knew what they were doing when it came to mens wear. They had such an eye for what looks good on men. I go here to purchase all my suits! I always get complimented on being the best dresser of the office. Without Rik Ducar I would probably be the laughing stock of the office. I am getting married in a year and I already have my Tux picked out with the girls. They really take the stress of the wedding off my plate.
Great Experience, Personal Staff, and a Perfect Wedding Day – So like many grooms-to-be, I started looking for a place to rent tuxedos for the big day and started with places like Men's Warehouse and Savvi Formalwear. I was completely disappointed with my experiences there and hated the idea of ordering tuxedos from a catalog to try them on a week later. So I searched the internet and found Le Tux Shop in the Highlands and thought I would check this place out. I was a little skeptical at first with it being in the Highlands and wondered if it would be within my budget.
As soon as I arrived at Le Tux, I was greeted by Kate and was immediately helped like I was a regular customer. I came in with an idea of what I wanted for my tuxedo and the groomsmen tuxedos so we sat down with the book of rentals so that I could show her what I wanted. Kate was very helpful with helping me make decisions about the colors and styles that I wanted to try on.
On my next visit, I was greeted by name and Kate was again there, ready to help me with anything that I needed. After trying on the rentals, I told her they were all nice, but I really didn't feel like a groom in them. She pointed me towards a modern looking tuxedo by BCBG and the moment I put it on, I knew that this was the look I wanted on my wedding day. I was offered a very reasonable price and after a few days to think about it, I decided that is what I wanted to wear and I would get rental tuxedos for my groomsmen. Kate handled all of the coordination of tuxedo rentals for the groomsmen. She handled getting measurements and payment from all of the groomsmen which took one more thing off of my to-do list. All of my groomsmen, most of which did not live in Atlanta, had a great experience with Kate.
Initially, Le Tux had a problem getting the tuxedo as it was out of stock at the manufacturer. Kate worked for many days to have a tux made for me and shipped to Le Tux in time to have it altered and ready for the big day. After the alterations, the tuxedo fit perfectly and I also had a wonderfully tailored Hugo Boss shirt that I purchased at Le Tux to finish out the ensemble. I had so many comments at the wedding on how great my tuxedo looked and I have Le Tux Shop to thank for that.
Le Tux Shop provided me with first class service, a great selection of tuxedos, and reasonable prices. They have a selection of suits, tuxes, shirts, and any other formal accessory you may need to meet any price point. I would highly recommend Le Tux for your wedding attire or any formal wear need you may have. I will definitely be visiting them again when I need any formal wear in the future.
A Great Experience! – I went to Le Tux looking for suits for myself and my groomsmen. I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first given that so many other wedding vendor experiences that I had been taken to were less than ideal. I quickly changed my mind as Kate and Le Tux made the entire experience easy and enjoyable.
Le Tux had a great selection of suits and the pricing was as good or better than anywhere else. I gave her my groomsmen's contact info (with most living out of state) and Kate coordinated everything - sizing, payments, shipping, etc.
The suits looked great and the groomsmen all agreed that it was an easy experience for them. I would highly recommend Kate and Le Tux. I won't need them for another wedding but I do plan on going back for my next suit.
Quality collection, quality staff – I went to Le Tux to try and get a unique experience and got just that. I didn't want to go the mundane route and head to Men's Wearhouse for my wedding day.
Immediately upon arrival Rick, Kristen, and Kate treat you like a man of distinction, even if you are just a recent college grad. The store has all the variety a tuxedo shop needs (unless your name is Lloyd Christmas and you are in the market for a baby blue, crushed velvet tux). For a quality tux, with a knowledgeable friendly staff, hit up Le Tux shop. You won't regret it!
