Bernard’s Formalwear Brings Trendy Suit and Tux Rentals to Triangle Area Weddings

General Manager Keith Smith is the go-to resource when we are seeking out the scoop on the upcoming wedding trends for men. We consult him and his team each year for our editorial shoots and formalwear fashion reports. Each year, the inventory reflects high fashion. From classic tuxedos, to gemstone colored jackets, to sleek fitted suits for women, they have it all.

If you live in Durham, Raleigh, Cary or Chapel Hill, we advise consulting Bernard’s for formalwear rentals. If any of your groomsmen or wedding party members needing rentals are out of town, they can always get measured elsewhere and send the measurements to Bernard’s. Then, on the wedding weekend, all suits or tuxedos can be picked up and returned to the one location for ultimate convenience.

Suit Rentals Across NC

While Bernard’s Formalwear has been the go-to tux rental spot in the Triangle Area for decades, please note they have a sister company in Wilmington NC. They also ship rentals to formalwear shops across the state. We advise starting with the Durham shop, and asking for advise on which location to use.
