Testimonials Throughout the Years

"Rick and his wife were friendly and warm, never making us feel rushed. His recommendations were excellent, and he delivered the attire on time without issue despite the wedding coinciding with a lot of proms that weekend."

"Not only is Rick a great businessman who is helpful and courteous- he has great integrity as well! Within an hour of ring dance being canceled he had contacted me to offer a refund or credit! I will be back here for the next event."

"Rick truly knows his business and has an extensive inventory so all sizes and options were available to everyone in the party! They graciously provided two different ties for my husband's suit so he could select the one that he preferred, provided sufficient time to get the suits returned since this was an out-of-town wedding, and provided everything necessary for the outfits. The quality of the suits was excellent and Rick was very friendly and helpful. I would go back again and suggest that others do business with them as well."

"TUXEDO WEARHOUSE offers a terrific tuxedo selection, especially for slim fit guys. My date is on the smaller side so it was difficult to find a place who had a suit to fit him. the customer service and prices were unbelievable! I was so relieved to have a professional taking care of us and lifting a huge weight off."
