Jim Davis founded Jim’s Formal Wear in 1964 in Trenton, Illinois - a small town located about 35 miles east of St. Louis. For over forty years, Jim’s Formal Wear has always focused on providing a quality tuxedo, backed by outstanding service, at a fair price. It was never the company’s intention to become the largest wholesale renter of tuxedos. This happened as a result of our commitment to do “Whatever it takes to Create the Ultimate Formal Wear Experience” for our retailers and end-consumers. Today we are a family-owned corporation with over 5,000 independent retailers renting tuxedos in all fifty states and the Virgin Islands. We have over 200 retailers alone in the Virginia, Maryland & DC areas!
Our Nationwide Network of Retailers offers a convenient and affordable tux rental service for everyone in your wedding whether they live in town or they are travelling to your wedding. Our retailers are skilled at coordinating the wedding attire for your event, and they are experts at servicing your out-of-town groomsmen.
We have the newest tuxedo styles to fit any budget from designers such as Calvin Klein, Chaps Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis and more! Over 175,000 tuxedos from as small as a boys’ size 2 to as large as a men’s size 74 Long are maintained in inventory. We carry tuxedos to fit every size!
Your wedding color and wedding theme is important. We know matching colors to a bridesmaid dress is critical. That's why we offer over 150 different accessory colors. We have your color!
We hope you’ll trust us to service your upcoming formal event!
