A Chat with Mr. Formal Tuxedo Retail
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I have a large selection of high-quality formal wear for rental and for sale at affordable prices. Some of the designers include Jean Yves, Ike Behar, Michael Kors, Perry Ellis, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and many more. I pay attention to details and I offer amazing customer service.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites? A lot of men are wearing bow ties as an everyday accessory. I have over 65 colors in bow ties and different patterns to choose from. If you don't know how to tie a bow tie, you can buy them pre-tied. How convenient is that?! Another one of my fun item I sell are the tuxedo T-shirts.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have been in the formal wear business for 25 years. Being a single mother with a daughter who is a pre-med student and a daughter who is a college junior, I knew it was time for me to follow my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Men's formal wear is what I know. It's what I love.
What do you love most about your job? I love the fact that I am a part of someone's special occasion. When someone puts on a tuxedo, they're looking and feeling their best. It touches my heart knowing that I was a part of that. I want customers to know that there are options in formal wear. Tuxedos are not just black and white anymore.
