Frequently Asked Questions About Concert Attire
WHEN ARE FITTINGS?
Please see fitting information posted at http://www.unionbands.com/fittings/. Students who missed scheduled fittings or join the high school band program mid-year should email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to schedule a fitting time.
WHERE CAN I BUY A TUXEDO SHIRT?
A white tuxedo shirt with wing collar can be purchased at Hobby Lobby, J C Penney, or Al’s Formal Wear. Other choices may be available also. Money-saving hint (not intended as an endorsement for Hobby Lobby): Hobby Lobby typically has a 40% off coupon on their website that can be printed and used www.hobbylobby.com.
DO I WEAR THE CUMMERBUND PLEATS UP OR PLEATS DOWN?
DO I WASH THE CONCERT ATTIRE?
Tuxedos are dry cleaned only. UBPC will clean them prior to use for the season. The white tux shirt and black socks should be washed according to the instructions on the garment. If the tux needs to be cleaned during the season please take it to a reputable cleaner.
WHAT IF MY HEM OF PANTS ARE TOO LONG OR SHORT?
If you or someone in your home/family is able to sew a simple hem, then please follow these simple guidelines:
• Please do not use a sewing machine! Only tack-stitch the hem so it can be easily removed without the open stitches showing.
• No adhesive products. You may use safety pins as a no-sew option (2-4 pins per leg for tux pants; 6-8 pins per legs for palazzo pants).
• If you do not know someone who can fix the hem for you, email the UBPC Uniform Directors at email@example.com to explain your problem and request help.
WHAT IF I NEED A DIFFERENT SIZE?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the UBPC Uniform Directors know you need to switch sizes and schedule a time to refit. Keep in mind that we have limited sizes in stock so to ensure you have a proper fitting garment for the next concert, contact us 3-4 weeks before a performance in case we need to order a new garment.
