Frisco Fun & Formal has been offering formal wear services for Summit County residents and visitors since 1987. We would be happy to assist you with your special event. Please review the following information as it will hopefully answer many of the questions you may have about the process and pricing.
FORMAL WEAR RENTAL INFORMATION
We are a gift shop/tux rental business located in a small mountain town. As you might imagine, there is a limited demand for men's formal clothing here. Therefore, we don't have many tuxedos or other accessories here at the shop. Usually, we place orders through Jim's Formal Wear and they are shipped to us from a warehouse in Kansas. That's why it is very important to plan ahead!
SINGLE TUX AND SUIT ORDERS:
- BLACK TIE EVENTS
- JOB INTERVIEWS
When you need something formal to wear and you don't own it (or don't have it with you) we can help! Jim's Formal Wear offers a variety of dress clothes for any of these occasions. We need at least a few days' notice (at least a week if you want to avoid extra shipping costs) but we can order what you need and have it here when you need it. We do have a limited supply of clothing on site, so once in a while we are able to put together a last minute ensemble. However, there are absolutely no guarantees on this as we do not have every size available here at the shop.
PURCHASING A SUIT OR TUXEDO:
If you're interested in buying a tuxedo or suit, we have plenty of options available. Prices range from $169.99 to $349.98 for a coat and pants. We also have accessories available for purchase, including shirts, ties and shoes.
PLANNING AN EVENT:
If you're planning a wedding or any event with multiple tuxedo orders, it's best to start the process as early as possible. You might begin picking out styles and making decisions six months to a year before the event. We prefer to place the order two to three months in advance. This makes it more likely that the styles, colors and sizes you want will be available.
In order to avoid rush shipping charges, we need to put your order in at least a week before the date of use. After that time, rush fees range from $20 to upwards of $70 per suit as the date gets closer. So while it is POSSIBLE to order something two days before the event, it is much more expensive--and it can also be very stressful!
HOW TO GET STARTED:
To place an order, we need to have a rental agreement form filled out and signed, along with a credit card to keep on file.
We will also need all of your style choices and everyone's measurements.
The very best option is to get your measurements taken here at our shop, 299 Main St. in Frisco (on the corner of Third Avenue and Main). Our hours are 10-6 every day except Sunday, when we are open from 10-4.
However, we realize that not everyone is going to be able to come into our shop for measurements, so you can also send measurements to us via email or phone. (There is a $10 surcharge added for each individual who sends in measurements rather than being measured here.) If you can find a Jim’s Formal Wear retailer in your area, that is the best choice. The next best place to go for measurements is a professional tailor or menswear specialist.
It's very important that you are measured by a professional. Please don't try to guess your measurements.
Note: When you are being measured, double-check to make sure the numbers make sense to you. If you normally wear a 32 waist and they measure you at 38, ask if you can try on a pair of pants just to make sure.

The different tuxes and suits are organized into different collections. Budget Basic comes with any tie and a backless black vest or cummerbund, while Budget Premium allows you to choose any vest. For all other collections you can choose any vest and tie.
Basic shirts are included in the price, while microfiber shirts are $6 extra. Microfiber shirts are available in regular or fitted style.
