We just ordered tuxedos for our June wedding and had an awesome experience at Antonio's! We initially went to a chain store for tux rentals but were disappointed with the lack of options, lack of in store stock, pushiness of sales people, and last minute extra charges that were added to our bill. The experience was stressful and we felt like the sales people would say anything to get us to purchase- the guys couldn't even try anything on.

We immediately cancelled our order and went to Antonio's. Antonio's was the exact opposite. From the minute we walked in the staff was friendly and knowledgable. What I liked best about Antonio's was that they keep all of their suits/tuxes in stock so the guys could actually try on the tuxedos before deciding what they wanted. They had a large variety to choose from, including multiple shades of white shirts to match ivory dresses and a variety of price points to match our budget. We were interested in a tux that hadn't yet come in for the spring so they special ordered it in my fiancés size just so he could try it on. The girl we were working with (Erica) had a great style and made excellent recommendations for how to vary the groom from the groomsmen and fathers while still tying everything together- even down to the shoe choice. They made the entire process simple and stress free. Honestly I could not be more pleased with our experience at Antonio's and can't recommend them enough!

I can't say enough about the crew at Formals by Antonio! They really put the customer first and their tuxes are top notch. My entire wedding party rented tuxes there and we really did look good. I've rented from other places in the past or for friend's weddings and we didn't look nearly this good; I felt like I was wearing a custom tailored suit. Not to mention, the staff really has it together and got my entire party of 6 in and out in a hour while swamped with other weddings and two proms. They also don't require deposit up front which is nice. Don't bother going elsewhere for formal wear, just go to Antonio's. Oh and they also made us pocket squares with extra fabric from the bridesmaid dresses for no cost. Thanks again Formals by Antonio!!!!

P.S. - I never write reviews unless I'm really blown away by great service and I feel the folks at Antonio's deserves all the praise they can get. Keep up the great work!

I could not ask for a better experience when my fiancé and I went to pick out a tux for our wedding today. We walked in (no appointment needed) and were greeted by Tony. He took the time to answer some of my questions and set us up with Erica to help us find the right tux. Not only was Erica friendly and patient with us, she was very knowledgable and helped us find the fit tux for my 6'4" fiancé. They even had options for him to try on, so we could see exactly where the jacket would fall on his tall frame. I am so happy we went in today. Erica even offered for us to bring in my little cousin to have a " pretend fitting" because I had mentioned that he was feeling left out watching his sisters go pick out their dresses with me a few times. Based on today's visit I am already recommending them to my engaged friends. I cannot wait to see all the men dressed in the tuxes we picked. I will let you know how the service goes come our wedding, but so far they have been wonderful! Thanks Tony & Erica!

Antonio was MORE than accomodating. We ended up buying 6 suits from him for our wedding. My groomsmen were all shapes and sizes, but they all looked perfect for our special day. Antonio provides us with free rental shoes, ties, vests, cufflinks, shirt (although I ended up buying all of these minus the shirt for my groomsmen). For only about $30 more than renting a tux, all my groomsmen were able to walk away with a beautiful new suit. Antonio made you feel welcome everytime you came in and remembered who you were. He had a wide selection of suits to sort through as well. I have already referred my friend to him, who also used him for suits for his wedding. The service was equally spot on and I'll continue to recommend him and his services!

Tony runs a fantastic formal shop.

Living outside of CT, I loved how I was able to add my measurements to the website.
Infact, when I went into the formal shop to pick up the tuxedo, it fit exactly the way I wanted it! No changes needed.

Thank you Tony for doing a great job!

Let me just say Formals by Antonio SAVED our wedding! We originally ordered our tuxes from JT Ghamo. We only went with them because we received 2 free rentals from a bridal expo. We had so many problems with JT Ghamo it was ridiculous, so two days before our wedding, we needed to find a new place, my husband had rented from Antonio's before and had great service so we gave them a call. Now we were expecting to hear "no sorry, we can't help you, it's too late" because our wedding was that weekend, but instead, we they said "come one down, don't stress, we will take care of you and have your tuxes ready today". Our groomsmen and us went down and they were so incredibly busy fitting like 6 other weddings, but they called in the owners wife specially for us, and she fit all 7 guys for us that day. They went to great lengths to help us, and they did it with a smile. Their service was incredible, and they really saved our wedding. If it wasn't for them, we would not have tuxes for the wedding. We are so grateful for all they did for us and the guys all looked smashing!

Amazing Service! I went in there with my husband and just verbally described what i wanted and he ran in the back and showed me everything i had imagined. On top of that , all my groomsmen, my husband, and my dad were so last minute with the fittings and picking up the tuxes, and they still handled them with courtesy and prompt service and great cost! The guys recieved so many complimants too! So handsome!

These people are AMAZING! A long time family friend offered to do our tuxedos at cost through his business. I was grateful and took him up on the offer but unfortunately this decision turned out to be nothing short of a fiasco. Our wedding was on Saturday and 1/2 the tuxes arrived Wed, the other 1/2 on Thursday. Thursday night I realized all of the tuxedo pants were wrong - we wanted pinstripes and all pants were black. I called my friend in a panic and learned the tuxedos were shipped to CT from a vendor in OH. Not much we could do...so I got on the phone...

At about 7:00 p.m. on Thursday I called Antonio's and started off the conversation like this, "Hi my wedding is in less than 48 hours....I think I know the answer to my question, but I'm gonna ask anyway..." Tony told me to grab all the tuxedos I had and bring them to the store. By 9 p.m. that night Antonio's had us walking out the door with new pants for everyone - dads, brothers-in-law, kids, groomsmen and ushers - a total of 13 pairs, completely hemmed to measurements taken over the phone and every pair fit perfectly! He also outfitted the groom with an entire new tux. We were out the door with smiles and a sense of relief in no time at all - with 13 pairs of pants!

As the groomsmen came into town on Friday (1 day before wedding) we subsequently learned that a few of the original jackets didn't fit - sleeves too short, too tight to button, etc. so Antonio's also fitted those guys for jackets too! Although their store was 45 minutes away from the ceremony location, they even fitted two people for replacement jackets the morning of the wedding.

These guys were amazing! They were measuring, hemming, heasuring again, pressing, and measuring again. As we stood in their store, we used their phones to call everyone to confirm measurements for the pants. All of the pants were perfect but Tony told us to call him if anything didn't fit and he'd make sure it was re-done once the groomsmen arrived. He also told us to call in case we needed last minute jackets.

The great thing is that Antonio's owns all the tuxes so everything is in stock and available. Although we ordered Ralph Lauren Cutaways, what we got from the original vendor was a knock off that looked okay until you compared it to the real deal. What we got from Antonio's was the real deal RL cutaway jackets in black with the pinstriped pants. If it weren't for Antonio's I have no idea what we would have done! Some of the original pants were as much as 4 inches too short, not all of the jackets would have had tails, and 3 of the groomsmen would have been in jackets that effectively had 3/4 sleeves.

I wouldn't recommend waiting until the last minute, just start off with this place right off the bat and you'll have no worries. Also, their prices are TOTALLY reasonable. The "cost" price we were getting was essentially the same as what we would have paid if we started off at Antonio's. If I were to do it again, I would have started off here - they are FANTASTIC!!!
