Al's Formal Wear from Fort Worth, to Rockwall, and all over Texas made my groom and groomsmen look terrific! They were too expensive for my dad, however. They wanted $170 for a tux rental when he could buy one for $99 at International Suit Warehouse! They require a tux returned the next business day which was impossible because we were leaving for our honeymoon on a early Monday, when the wedding was on Saturday. So we had to inconvenience a friend to take it back for us. My husband's cousin couldn't get his back in time, so he knew he was stuck with the extra fee. One phone call was confusing because they called me confirming the tux rental date and at first I had no idea what they were talking about! I guess they couldn't get ahold of my fiance. Then they asked for my fiance by name at my parent's house, but it was regarding my dad's tux. Very confusing!

The ladies at Al's Formal Wear in Denton, TX were very helpful and did a great job helping us pick out our tuxes and invitations! They helped us choose our perfect style for the guys and the wording for our invitations! They also had great deals on both and they were very affordable. They have locations all over so it was convenient for the guys to go to their closest location instead of having to drive to a specific store. Also, they allowed us to make changes up to pretty close to our wedding date. They were also very accommodating with a groomsman that couldn't get fitted until the last minute because he was deployed overseas.
We did have a couple problems but they were all resolved quickly. When my husband went in to try on his tux the wrong one had been ordered. A second time we went to try it on and nothing was ordered and we had to wait for someone to go pick his tux up from their warehouse. However, his actual tux for the wedding was perfect! One of our groomsmen was also given a shirt with sleeves that only came down to his elbows. In their defense, he didn't try it on when he picked it up. However, I do think they should have encouraged him to try it on because it is their job to ensure everything fits and was ordered correctly, but his jacket covered it up so it wasn't a problem! Also, our invitations arrived without our outer envelopes but that could have been the invitation vendors fault.
Overall we were still very happy with their services!

We went to the Al's Formalwear near OakLawn, and their customer service was excellent. They remembered who I was every time I walked in the store. Our tuxes and invitations were from that location. They're quick to return calls and are knowledgeable about wedding invitations, timing, wording, and traditions. I highly recommend that location.

They majorly messed up the tux order for our wedding. They gave us the wrong colored shirts, switched the vest order for the usher, and gave the wrong size to 3 of the groomsmen. To top it off, the young girl who worked there (at the location on Northwest HWY & Hillcrest) was extremely rude and not helpful. She actually hung up the phone on my husband when he was calmly explaining his frustrations and problems with the order. We went with one of the more expensive tux rentals and I thought the quality of what we received was not worth what we paid. I would not recommend them!

The groom and groomsmen tux rentals were done at the last minute for our wedding, and across 4 Texas cities. The ROCKWALL store was amazing - the manager there was able to ensure the payment was done correctly. One of our groomsmen tuxes was accidentally paid for twice, and the Rockwall store manager made sure we were reimbursed very promptly. Also, two of our out-of-state men had problems with their tuxes, but the Rockwall store was able to find replacement pieces within its inventory.

Renting tuxes is expensive, but if you're going to do it - make sure to have a good relationship with the store manager. He/she can be a great help if anything were to go wrong.

Yes they do wedding invitations too! If you get your tuxes through Al's they offer huge discounts on all sorts of name brand invitations and announcements. Ours were 45% off. We saved a bundle, and they turned out just as beautiful as if we'd got them at an invitation store.

Al's was pretty good overall. There was a snafu where I ordered a particular kind of tie and the one I picked up was completely different. BUT, they worked overtime well past closing hours to take care of me (they closed at 9 and the manager went to another location an hour away to get what I ordered and had it to be by midnight). Great prices on tuxes for me and my groomsmen and prompt service.
