Frisco Fun & Formal has been offering formal wear services for Summit County residents and visitors since 1987. Due to the limitations of being located in the mountains, we are only able to offer limited services.
We will no longer be providing formal wear for destination weddings. (We do have some weddings already scheduled through October 2018 so if you have already begun the process, don't worry, we'll take care of you!)
If you live out of town and are planning a wedding in Summit County or the Vail area, we recommend checking out some of the online tux rental companies. Jim's Formal Wear also offers an online service, so if you like the styles you see on our site, they are available by clicking the link below:
If you are a resident of Summit County resident or other nearby mountain town, and you can come into our shop for an in-person consultation, we would be happy to assist you with your special event. (However if your special event is tomorrow, we might not be able to help--so please plan ahead!)
Examples of services we provide include:
- Weddings for local residents: If the groom and at least a majority of the groomsmen can come in to the shop to meet us and get measurements taken, we can probably work with you. Please call or email to set up a time to meet with us and discuss whether we would be a good fit for you.
- Prom: We love prom season. It's crazy, but fun. As long as there is even one local high school kid who wants to rent a tux, we'll be here for you!
- Quinceaneras: We are happy to work with local families who would like to order tuxes for their special celebration.
- Job interviews, formal events, weddings, funerals: Most guys up here don't exactly have a closet full of suits. If you find that you need to rent a suit or tux and don't want to drive to Denver, we can help (as long as we have a few days' notice!)
- White formal shirts and bow ties for people working in catering, or just anyone needing a white dress shirt.
- Measurements: If you live in the area and need to have measurements taken, we provide this service free of charge.
- We keep a limited selection of: shirts, bow ties, neck ties, vests, suspenders, cuff links, studs, dress socks and even some basic black tuxedo pants and coats. If you find yourself in need of these items, we will do our best to help you out!
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!
Please note we do not accept Jim's Formal Wear coupons--instead, we simply reduce our prices by $40 off the suggested retail, no coupon needed. Are prices are listed near the bottom of this page.
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 generally need 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 a few 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 all of your style choices and everyone's measurements.
Normally everyone renting a tux or suit will get their 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, if we have agreed in advance that one or two members of your wedding party will be sending us their measurements, please have them contact us via email or phone, or click on the link below to submit their measurements. (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 measure yourself or guess your measurements! Also, 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.
We are a Jim’s Formal Wear dealer. Click here to see all the styles and accessories.
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.
