about savvi formalwear

Friar Tux Shop is a founding member of Savvi Formalwear, which took its present shape around 2005. Before that we were a member of Tuxedo America Group, the precursor to Savvi, since the mid-1990s.

Savvi Formalwear is one of the finest formalwear retailers, with over 250 locations nationwide. The organization is collectively managed so that customers are seamlessly served across the United States and Canada. To ensure the very best service for every customer, all locations are family owned and operated by members in their respective communities. And all locations are served by local warehouses so that tuxedos look their best when you wear them for your event.

The cooperative model allows us to realize large company benefits regarding such things as buying power, resource pooling, and national branding, while simultaneously providing the exacting levels of customer service only possible with local, entrepreneurial ownership. It is this combination of corporate-level management and innovation, combined with the passion and commitment of our local store owners, that makes shopping at Savvi a unique and satisfying experience.
