Businessman Rick Kasoff examines a tux.

County, and the Ann Arbor
area.
Mr. Porvin charges bet-
ween $65 and $90 per tux.
The delivery service is free
for parties of five or more.
For $20, he'll provide the
same service for a smaller
group of individuals.
"Is it worth $20 to the
customer," he said. "I think
the answer is yes."
To get the business off the
ground, he's been marketing
the service mainly through
bridal shops and hotels. He
is also trying to make con
tact with businessmen. One
of those was David Sklar,
who recently rented a tux
from Mr. Porvin for a charity
event.

response has been good, Mr.
Porvin said.
Since launching the busi-
ness, he hasn't minded the
thousands of miles he's put
on his car or the' large gas
bills. He has hired three
employees to handle the
workload and expects the
demand to further increase
as more people seek the ser-
vice.
"I'm not going to be a mill-
ionaire," Mr. Porvin said.
"But there is definitely
money to be made." ❑

"I had a lot of apprehen-
sion," Mr. Sklar said. "But
he did everything he said. I
would do it again."
A large man, Mr. Sklar
said he usually isn't comfor-
table in tuxedos. "But it was
nice and comfortable. I
didn't want to change right
afterwards."
"Most people have been
supportive," Mr. Porvin
said. "It can be a relaxing
time unlike the trip to the
store."
The groom and his ushers
can meet at someone's home,
eat dinner and look through
Mr. Porvin's samples, he
said. "You can make it a so-
cial event. There is also
more personal attention
than you might get at a
store.
"My time is more involved
at the home," he said. "I
don't feel the press of other
customers."
Although he's only been in
business a few months, the
