    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!

    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.

    Perfect for our day

    Derks was very accommodating with scheduling during the pandemic. They were easy to book with but the only negative was that they were supposed to confirm our appointment with a phone call the week of the fittings and we never received one.

    Derks Formals & Menswear's reply:

    Hi Kayla, thank you for this feedback! We are always looking for ways to improve and we will share your comments with our floor staff. Congratulations on your big day!

    Best quality

    Renting suits from Derk's Formal is amazing. We were in communication regarding the groom and groomsmen suits measurements and rentals.

    One groomsmen manage to get everything sorted out in Saskatchewan for his measurements and everything worked out perfectly.

    Avoid this place like the plague

    Worst experience ever. Would not recommend. The staff was nothing but rude. We started looking for suits in September 2019. Made an appointment and headed in. We originally dealt with Avery who was so scatterbrained. She left us in the fitting area. Forgot to bring different suit sizes and when we decided to just leave she told us next time to book an appointment even though we did and she was the one that checked us in. A few months later we went back and dealt with Min who honestly is the only person I would recommend dealing with. He got us all set up, helped my husband find a suit and all was perfect. Once Covid hit we postponed our original plans and reached out immediately. Again dealing with Avery who forgot to change our date and we had to call back several times to confirm. Closer to our new date we went in to confirm everything. Derks lost our groomsmen’s deposits and sizes that were called in. And I was met with rude remarks from an older lady working there who basically told me that they didn’t call in and that I was lying even though we had payment proof from the groomsmen. She was so rude to me I left in tears out of frustration. One of my groomsmen called in an updated size and she had also stated on the phone with him “wow, you sure got big”. We were called the Tuesday before our wedding saying everything was ready for pick up, but when we went into pick up our suits they were not ready. The day of the wedding the sizing was all wrong and half the suits were missing cufflinks, and one of the shoes were damaged and looked like garbage. It was overall a dumpster fire and I would not recommend Derks to anyone looking at renting suits. The customer service was appalling. We would have cancelled but they were refusing refunds which given the circumstances was unacceptable.

    ***As a business who’s primary focus is creating an experience they sure did a terrible job at that. Buyer beware.

    Nice suits, but check before you pickup

    We ordered suits for the groom and 3 groomsmen. All but 1 suit had a problem with the order (wrong size, color, cut...). As our wedding was out of town, we were leaving a day early, but due to the error a groomsmen had to stay behind and go in the day before the wedding to pick up the correct pieces. Once we got everything we needed, the suits were decent, but one pair of pants was still the wrong size.
    I’m not sure if the mistakes were because of poor measuring at the fitting or the employee picking the order picked the wrong sizes but there were a lot of mistakes.

    Very helpful, great selection

    Derks was very helpful both with purchasing a suit for my fiancé and renting suits for our groomsmen who were scattered across Alberta and BC. Derk's had very helpful staff who made recommendations and weren't afraid to tell us if something didn't look quite right. They also had a much larger rental selection than most of the other places we visited.
