When looking for formal wear, going with a company that prides itself on customer service, longevity, and expert knowledge is key. Rex Formal Wear fits this bill perfectly. They were the first Tuxedo store in San Antonio and opened their first store in 1946. In fact, they still have the tags from when they first opened up in 1946. These tags are in a case on the wall, proudly displaying their history. But when you purchase a suit with them, they also have a supply of these original tags which they sew into your new suit, making you officially part of the Rex legacy.

Quincy, the owner, found the pull of the formal wear industry so strong and enjoyed his work so much that he has owned it twice: once 28 years ago after he graduated school and more recently he purchased it again 3 years ago. Combined with staff members like the manager, Greg, and Raymond, who have worked there for more than 20 years, means you are getting help from people who know their inventory and the industry inside and out! Quincy has dressed people for quinceañeras who now, 20 years later, are coming back in for their kids’ quinces or for their own weddings.

Rex is Latin for King, and Quincy likes to remind people that this is how they should feel in their tuxedo: like royalty. This kind of customer service is what the whole staff prides themselves on, Quincy believes this unique service has brought them such customer and staff loyalty which is why their business has remained successful for so long.

Rex is also the only tuxedo store with a full inventory on site. This means they are able to provide same-day service if need be. So say you have out of town guests who show up and the suit they ordered doesn’t fit or never came in, Rex has you covered. Between their expert staff, on-site inventory, and dedication to quality service, Rex Formal Wear can help you avoid a potential catastrophe! #buylocal

Regardless of what you choose, I agree with Quincy: your tuxedo should make you feel like royalty! So invest in a suit, whether rental or purchase, that fits well and the experts like at Rex Formal Wear can help make sure everyone looks crisp and dapper on your big day! 

Here are two 5-star FB reviews they received recently:

“Besides a great selection in stylish tuxedos, REX Formal Wear does a lot to support the community it serves. For prom season, every student tuxedo rental creates a $5 donation to that student’s high school toward Project Graduation celebrations. There’s no telling how many young lives they will save this commencement season.” – Arthur

Not only do they have stylish tuxes the also have friendly, respectful and cooperative people. My experience there was a positive, efficient one. The people there were welcoming, respectful and treated me like an every day customer. If I ever need a tux again I’ll be sure to come back.” – Caileen

So  if you are in need of a dapper suit, you know where to go…
