In 1939, the first Derks opened its doors, and men in western Canada started dressing just a little bit better—or maybe a lot better. In the decades since, Derks Formal has helped men select the perfect suits, tuxedos, and other clothing for formal occasions. Each year, Derks Formals updates its catalogue with a colourful selection of ties, vests, jackets, pants, full suits, and everything else needed to fill a closet with something other than old yo-yos. Derks' staff help men sift through this vast selection, guiding them to the perfect colour ensemble or the pair of shoes with just the right amount of shine. They then take measurements to custom fit and tailor the clothing, and may even demonstrate the obscure knots and arcane chants behind tying a bowtie, if necessary.
Looking good isn't restricted to business meetings or a groom's traditional 100-metre dash down the aisle. Other Derks companies sell casual menswear, graduation wear, bridal wear, and more.
