GROOM, and acronym for "Gentlemen's Ready-To-Wear Originals By Octavius Marsion" is a full-service tuxedo lounge for grooms and groomsmen based out of Los Angeles, CA, offering a one-of-a-kind custom fitting and styling experience, and now a full line of accessories with our inaugural Ready To Go Collection Fall/Winter 2016 which ships March 1st.
Let's pause and back up for a moment. Who is GROOM? We're glad you asked. GROOM is greater than the sum of its parts. It's an experience, one that was envisioned by the Co-Founders, Celebrity Fashion Designer Octavius Marsion and Celebrity Choreographer, Director and Brand Designer Jamal Sims. With an audience of 30 million, their historical same-sex wedding on the 2014 Grammy Awards marked the inception of GROOM and its contemporary custom tuxedos, and now a full line of accessories— the underpinning of influential collections to come. The custom tuxedos gained worldwide attention after appearing front and center during the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Madonna "Same Love" performance that was officiated by Queen Latifah.
This momentous day embodied a simple but powerful idea — equality. GROOM strives to bring equality to the men’s formalwear and accessories marketplace.
