    For most part great

    I ordered my suit in advance and Pauline in Edmonton Sherwood park location was very happy to help and had a calming presence to her to make my fist time there wonderful!
    Also let me pay for my suit in full!
    How ever when I went back months later to get my final fit and pick up a few days before my wedding they were not prepared and running around trying to find my bow tie that I specifically requested and tried to offer me a tie instead.
    The lady helping me at the the time getting my suit said one thing for the issue and someone else saying another!
    After being there for longer then it should have taken they finally figure it out and got me on my way .

    The was exactly what I wanted and I received many compliments. My groomsmen also really like the suit!
    In all I had a pleasant experience.

    Thanks 😊

    The suits turned out good but the service was not good

    I'm sorry Derks, I hate to write bad reviews, but we gave you so many chances.
    My partner bought his whole wedding suit from Derks, and then his 5 grooms men did a combo of buying and renting different pieces from Derks. Some of the groomsmen were from out of town and that made things tricky.
    We contacted Derks well in advance of the wedding and tried to be understanding of this crazy ass wedding summer (thanks covid). Although we had several cases of Derks being so widely unorganized. My partner got a call before the wedding that his suit finished being tailored and it was ready to pick up, so we drove out to sherwood park and waited for about 20 minutes before someone was ready to help us. Then it took about another 15 minutes for them to try to find the suit. They apparently had the suit under the wrong name (nothing like my partners name), and the suit was STILL ON the receiving line, it hadn't even made it back to the tailor. So they apologized and said they would fix it asap. So we left and did some errands and came back in a hour-ish. Then we waited again, at the front door while it was chaos. The manager apologized a bunch again and still seemed confused. We tried on the suit and it fit, and it was the right color and everything so that is good.
    But we had a groomsman where the same thing happened, they got a call that their suit was ready, and it wasn't even tailored yet.
    My partner was a bit flustered by his groomsmen having so many issues getting their suits so he called the manager and explained his experience, apparently she was polite and understanding and told him that she would personally watch over his order, and that we should come to get all the suits 2 days before the wedding, have everyone try them on, and worst case, come back the next day to make sure things were perfect and the tailor could fix it. So we drove out to sherwood park again 2 days before the wedding. We arrived and waited for..idk maybe 10-15 with a line of other frustrated looking people. The people at the till were having such a hard time with their computer program they had no idea who was next and what to help them with. We waited for awhile till the manager saw us and was like 'hey how can I help you?' We said our name and she was confused and said that our appointment was for tomorrow, the day before the wedding, then she looked again and she we had two appointments, one today and one tomorrow and she was confused. Anyways, after another few minutes they found all our groomsmen suits. My partner had fully bought his suit already and had brought it with him today to try on again (he also tried it on at home many times). The tailor and manager were very confused about whose suit that was and is he needed to buy it and why it was there. It was his, he already bought it, and he was just trying it on again. We went through all our groom-mens suits (the grooms men were out of town still) and checked the suits for the color, sizes and that they included everything. Thankfully everything was there. I put all the groom's men suits on one hook while my partner was getting dressed. The staff kept moving the suits around to different hangers and opening them up and dropping things from inside the suit bags. They made it so much more confusing. The tailor had to be reminded to cut off the tags of the suits and the little stitching around the suit flaps. They told us to go back to the front of the store so we could pay for all the suits. (some of which were actually already paid for, but okay). Since the suits were put on different hooks they forgot some of the suits in the back. I had to remind them about 3 times we are missing a suit (I see it back there still). They were confused about my partners suit again (do you need to buy this? no).
    Overall being there gives me stress, the staff seems bored but also chaotic. No one smiled at us or made sure everything was okay. My partner was pushed into a dressing room, and it took us asking for help for someone to shuffle along. It was so confusing there, and I don't know why.
    I'm glad all the suits fit and looked good, but I was so blown away by the lack of customer service.

    Pretty good experience

    We went to the Derks in Sherwood Park. The cost of renting suits was incredibly reasonable and the quality was great. At times, the staff seemed a little overwhelmed. We had 5 groomsmen plus our groom. The groom wore a different outfit and the groomsmen had the choice between two different vests. We were assured that would be noted on our file, but when a couple of the groomsmen went in to be fitted they weren't given a choice so that was disappointing. They also mixed up the groom's pants at the final fitting. Nothing that couldn't be fixed right away so luckily it all turned out!

    Good Looking Suits, Good Prices!

    We went with the blue suits and brown shoes for our rentals. We had the groom and the groomsmen all wear the same, which ended up looking great! At the beginning, our service wasn’t great. A staff member made a slightly rude comment to me about “not being an organized bride” because k forgot the bridesmaid dress color swatch at home. A few times he came off to me as dismissive & rude, but after working together for a while, it seemed that we warmed up to each other. There was another small issue during pick-up of sizing, but everything came together for the wedding day! Overall, I gave Derks a good rating because their pricing was super reasonable, everything was clean, & all the men came to our wedding wearing matching suits - so that’s all that matters!

    Unnecessarily Stressful - Mr Derk

    We went through Mr Derks originally which is an offshoot of the “Derks” company but the men were able to pick up their suits from other locations. I wanted everything to be in place so we went early for an appointment and picked out the suits and colors. Selection was surprisingly low which I found weird as it’s one of the biggest suit companies in the city. We had told Derks that my groom wanted to buy his suit and the groomsmen were to rent. A couple weeks before the wedding they had no recollection of him wanting to buy his suit. The groomsmen went and got measured and the week of the wedding went to pick up their suits and 1/5 fit correctly. They were also adjusting my husbands suit up until the day before the wedding. It doesn’t matter how early you go and plan. They are very unorganized and will have to rush the suits out anyway. They all looked good the day of but it was a stressful journey.

    Busy but great service!

    Derks was crazily busy during our wedding but still managed to have the groom and groomsmen dressed in what we wanted in a professional manner. Go early to book!

    An enjoyable wedding rental experience!

    Derks Formals was a pleasure to work with for our recent wedding! Derks outfitted my father, my father-in-law, and our Best Man, along with accessories needed by a few other guests! My husband even picked up an additional suit jacket to change into for our dance. The colour selection was expansive - we were able to colour-match with our wedding colour palette with no difficulty, and all items were ready to go for our special day! We look forward to visiting Derks again for our next special event needs! Thanks again!

    A perfect one stop shop for groomsman and wedding rentals, both in Calgary and Edmonton.

    We used Derks Formals for our groomsmen wedding party rentals and it was perfect. They have a large selection of suits, vests, ties, shoes etc and made it very easy for the guys to be measured and pick up what they needed. Customer service was wonderful and they went above and beyond to make our special day very memorable. We had rentals in both Calgary and Edmonton and they made sure everyone matched. We even had a couple groomsmen who were coming from outside of Alberta and they were able to send in their measurements. The staff made sure that everyone looked their best. We also recommended Derks for guests coming from out of town and they were able to assist everyone from a teenager to a grandfather. As the groom, also rented a sweet suit jacket to change into for the dance! Thanks Derks!

    Thank you for your kind words Jonathan! We are so happy to congratulate you on the wedding, and wish you and your partner a long a prosperous marriage!

    Perfect Suit Rentals!

    Derks Formals was such a great place to get suits from for the groom, groomsmen and father of the bride on our wedding day. All the staff that work there are so friendly and warm and provide such a personable touch! Renting suits, getting the measurements and ensuring proper fit was very easy and seamless even with out of town wedding party members. GREAT value for the rental as well. My husband was able to customize his a little bit as well. Highly recommend and thanks so much for being apart of our special day.

    Derks Formals & Menswear's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Veronica! We are so happy to hear that your wedding went so well, and are honored to have been able to help you achieve your dream on your wedding day.
