The reception center is booked. The photographer is scheduled. Flowers are arranged. Your bridesmaids are delighted with the fabric and the color you’ve chosen for them. And, finally, you found THE perfect dress.

Make outfitting the groom and groomsmen in a way that complements your effort, effortless. Choose Connie’s Menswear. 

“I make shopping simple,” said Connie Seal, owner. “Brides have one less thing to worry about. The look and fit of the menswear will be flattering at the event and in photographs enjoyed for years to come. One of the problems with tuxedo rental is – sadly – the tuxedos look rented. A good-looking suit or sports jacket that’s tailored to fit can be worn again and again.”

John David Broussard of Lake Charles has experienced the perils of tuxedo rental firsthand.

“A groomsmen and I got our tuxes the day before the wedding,” Broussard said. “His pants were way too short and mine were way too long, but the waist sizes made it impossible to swap pants.”

Broussard was familiar with Connie’s Menswear for business attire. Recently he experienced men’s wedding attire made simple.

“Now I tell everyone planning a wedding to go see Connie,” he said.

Connie’s Menswear is a by-appointment-only menswear business. It offers tuxedos, suits, sport coats, dress shirts and slacks, as well as carefully selected top-performing brands of casual clothing and accessories. Selected, off-the-rack clothing is tailored to custom fit. Connie’s Menswear also offers made-to-measure menswear, a totally customized approach to shopping.   

“It’s your wedding,” Connie said. “You can make it exactly what you want from formal to fun. I can even provide casual clothing for the honeymoon, shorts, shirts, khakis, jeans, you name it.” 

Choosing quality clothing from Connie Menswear is the right investment. Customers have been pleasantly surprised at the affordability of selections. 

“When a suit fits, it can make a tremendous difference in how it looks,” Connie said. We’re all different, slim built and not so slim, tall and short. It’s amazing how polished and pulled together men look in clothes that have been altered just for him.” 

Trevor Richard has been depending on Connie’s Menswear for almost seven years now. In his closet is a Connie’s Menswear tux and suit. His dress shirts always come from Connie’s Menswear because they fit perfectly and last.  

“My shoulders are 54 inches and my waist is 36 inches,” Richard said. “I’m hard to fit. When I was asked to rent a tux from a particular company for a wedding, Connie realized the problems associated with getting a rental that was sized right and offered to help. If you do business with Ms. Connie, you will be satisfied. Any time I am wearing something from Connie’s Menswear, I get a compliment. She’s always been on point.”

Not every Connie’s Menswear suit is an exercise in practicality.

“I just took an order for a funky bright blue Kentucky Derby suit and banana yellow shirt,” Connie said laughing. “Last week someone brought in the hat she’ll be wearing to the local Derby for Dollars fundraiser and asked me to make a bow tie that will match.” 

Connie Seal offers personalized service and attention to detail seldom seen in this day and age. Customers arrange an appointment time. Some know exactly what they want. Others solicit Connie’s suggestions on styles, colors and fabrics.

Connie’s Menswear makes shopping for men’s clothing simple — for formal occasions including weddings, for business and for fun.
