We could not recommend Donnie at Formally Modern enough. I was initially skeptical of the strip mall location and the outdated logo, but my wedding planner recommended Formally Modern. It's a low key spot with not much stock - just items for rental or to make custom suits/tuxes. We had 3 meetings with Donnie - building the custom suit, then a fitting and follow up try-on after alterations. My husband ended up with a beautiful, very special suit. He's not crazy about clothes - and was nervous about the process, but Donnie was so supportive, warm and inclusive. His taste and customer service are incredible! The price - for a fully custom suit in a gorgeous wool and two shirts, all great quality - was so reasonable and I felt it was cheaper than what I saw online from other custom suit companies. I We are going to go back for a few casual custom shirts and a blazer - because the experience was that good.
Donnie was amazing to work with. We got all my groomsmen set up with the navy 3-piece suit rentals and we created a custom 3-piece for me that would complement but still stand out. I have an athletic build so off the rack suits don’t fit well but the one he made for me fit like a glove. He covered every detail with me when planning and was thoughtful when I needed suggestions. Couldn’t be happier with the suit or the service and I will definitely be going back.
Incredible experience. Donnie helped me choose my look for my wedding and was extremely helpful throughout the process. He made sure that my custom shirt, tux, and the rest of my gear fit perfectly. He was the man!! The tux itself is top notch and was a reasonable price. This was 10,000 times better service and tux quality than the online services (Black Tux, Stitch & Tie, which are pretty subpar). 10 out of 10 would recommend.
The process of having a suit made with formally modern tuxedo was consistently made very easy by the great service provided by Donnie and his team. The created suit was made on time to the original expectation and looks amazing. There was an array of options available of the suit components and build. Donnie helped recommend a material which was appropriate for my core need of the suit (tropical wedding) and had helped me find a pair of shoes which would go well with the look as well. Overall, the process took ~4 visits to the location -> one to pick out the suit materials, one to get fitted, one to try the suit on, and one to finally pick it up after final tweaks. Great experience - would happily recommend to anyone in need of a custom suit/tux.
We came to Formerly Modern to buy a tux for my fiancé. We were completely blown away by the service!! Donnie is intelligent, kind, and incredibly helpful. He made us feel like VIP, he took great care of us and answered all our questions. If you are in the market for a tux for rental or purchase seriously consider stopping by. You won’t be disappointed!
