Friar Tux Shop was founded in May of 1974 in Lakewood, California. In the beginning there was one energetic young man running the shop. From early on, however, there was plenty of family support: Mom provided the catchy name and Dad provided a vision. Brother joined in soon to help with the increase in business. The recipe was simple: stir in lots of selection and quality, then blend this with generous amounts of impeccable customer service and reasonable pricing. Friar Tux Shop was a success!

Today, more than three decades later, Friar Tux Shop is a leader in men's formalwear in Southern California as well as a respected national figure. We've grown to dozens of locations throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego from our single store in Lakewood, and have one of the largest collections of tuxedos and accessories in the United States. Despite having more than 200 employees, we're still a family business (even if our family is a bit larger now!), and still operate under the same recipe for success as we did back in 1974.


As we look towards our 40th anniversary, we can also look back at more than a million customers who have trusted their special event clothing to Friar Tux Shop. Whether it's a wedding, a high school prom, a Quiñceanera, the Academy Awards or a fraternity dance, Friar Tux Shop has been and remains the authority in men's special event attire. Read less

I wanted to write a review for a spectacular individual who deserves to be pointed out! Lauren Dorta, I could not have produced this styled shoot without you! Lauren was EXTREMELY helpful. I was forwarded to Lauren from another contact we had at Friar Tux and it was one positive experience after another. I reached out a month before our photoshoot with no idea who our models would be. Not only did she provide the best tux options for us, BUT ALSO PROVIDED INFO FOR MODELS SHE RECOMMENDED! I was blown away! She then explained that their system is so easy by keeping measurements on file, making the process so much easier!! This was all knew to me as I've never rented a tux before, so I was thrilled to hear that! After that, I made sure I secured groom + groomsmen models who have previously used Friar Tux, so they could avoid going the store and getting measured since we were in such a time crunch.

Fastforward a week before the photoshoot- I had switched the groom and had to cancel the original order placed. In addition, we secured 3 models for groomsmen. The new groom was not in the system and could not get fitted, so he sent his measurements. These were some big changes to make as Lauren was leaving for vacation in a few days. With timing, I got her all the info needed right before she left. Lauren took SUCH good care of us, literally answering me until the moment she stepped on the plane dealing with my last minute issues... The tuxes were perfect and organized just perfectly when I picked them up.

Lauren, thank you for your patience, kindness and ability to get everything figured out!

I'm overwhelmed by the kindness, helpfulness and ease Lauren provided. Thank you and thank you, Friar Tux!

I really liked the rental options for tuxedos at Friar Tux, definitely better than Men's Wearhouse. The staff at the location in Temecula as well as San Diego were helpful and friendly. But unfortunately, when my husband and the groomsmen went in to pick up their tuxedos, they have my husband a regular vest when he needed a tall. They insisted it was a tall and while he should have checked for himself, he didn't find out until the morning of the wedding. As someone who formerly worked in a tux shop, my husband is very well versed in how a tuxedo should look and fit - this small mistake is a bigger deal to him as he notices it in our pictures now. A little more attention to detail and double checking sizes would go a long way in customer satisfaction. Other than that issue, we were very happy with Friar Tux.

Hi Caylin, thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We are sorry for the mistake with the vest size and hope you've had a chance to talk to the district manager about it. If you haven't, please email contact@friartux.com referencing your review so that we can have someone follow up with you and see if there is anything we can do to improve your experience with us and we will talk to our staff about the situation. We appreciate your business! Best, Kristy

After looking at tuxes two other places we ended up at Friar Tux in Thousand Oaks. Our consultant was friendly and knowledgeable, he brought up ideas we had never thought of before and helped us choose looks for my fiance, the groomsmen and our fathers. The entire process was easy and fun and I seriously can't wait to see how everyone looks at the wedding!!!!!

Excellent selection and customer service! They came through for us only a few weeks before our wedding after Men's Wearhouse flaked. In the end it worked out for the best, though, as Friar Tux had a much better selection of colors, with much better prices. Highly recommend!

Friar Tux was a life saver for our wedding. We were looking for classic grey, fitted suits for our bridal party and were striking out left and right. We had gone to the basic chains (Mens Warehouse, Jos A Banks, etc.) and all they wanted to do was trick us into buying new suits. The rental options at the other chains were a joke. Friar Tux (in Thousand Oaks, CA) had a great selection to choose from their staff was very helpful. They also had a deal, rent 5 suits and get the six suits free which is a nice plus. They were reasonably priced and the staff was helpful. They only issue we encountered was that the groom’s vest ended up being the wrong size but it wasn’t that big of a deal because it was under the jacket. But be sure to make everyone trying everything on when you pick up the suit! Thank you Friar Tux!!

Good selection however, it is cheaper to go with purchasing a suit rather than renting one. When you purchase a suit it takes a while for the suit to come in as oppose to the rental which can come in days before the event.

Renting about 7 Tuxedo's for my wedding and I decided to use Friars. I cannot say enough about their customer service at the Friar Tux Shop in Rancho Cucamonga off of Foothill Blvd and Day Creek.

Specifically, Eileen (the manager) was excellent. She gave me all the time I needed, was extremely helpful and offered multiple great suggestions. I came in a few times with color questions as to what would fit best with my dress and the theme of my wedding. She even gave me a color sample to compare too. She never made me feel rushed or pressured, it's like I had known her for years. Not to mention, her customer service was one of a kind. I'm a person whose all about service. Service takes effort and Eileen's effort was wonderful!

I would recommend this place to anyone. Try to get Eileen to assist you, you will not be disappointed!
