Overall fantastic experience. We had no problems getting everything we needed for my cousins wedding. So excited for the big day and couldn't have had a more smooth experience through Bernard's Formal Wear. Thank you very much!

Great everything included prices, staff was friendly and helpful, the warehouse, cleaning and fitting is all done on premises. One of the best I've been to so far.

VERY satisfied with the service and attention to detail. Great staff and will recommend to others for formal wear and outfitting. They were great for our wedding and very accommodating to last minute requests and prices were very reasonable. Definitely recommend!

Excellent service by Keith and the whole team. They got me a suit, in a hard to get size, on very short notice, including altering and pressing. Great place to get your suits and tuxedos!

The best place in the Triangle to get a suit/tux rental. Quick and efficient staff with excellent customer service! Will use again and again. They also sell suits.

Visited Bernards on a recommendation from a friend, looking for a tuxedo for my husband for a black tie event. For less than the price of a rental from big name national chains, we were able to BUY a lightly used tuxedo that fit perfectly (and will get lots of use now). The staff were so patient with my questions and clearly knew their stuff. Will absolutely be back for any future needs!

Rented a tuxedo for a wedding here - Bernards is on top of it! Fast and simple alterations to my tuxedo were made so that it fit better, the staff was helpful and certainly made me feel at home. I'd LOVE if there was a way to submit credit card info with the size form in the future, as it makes things easier from out of state.

I originally went in looking to buy a suit. The owner was very helpful in getting me measured and going through the options with me. When it turned out the suit I wanted wouldn’t be available before my deadline (COVID-related shipping delays), they were able to set me up with a rental no problem. When I came in to get it everything was ready to go for me, all I had to do was try it on. Amy was also great helping me choose a tie. Overall a very stress-free errand with professional and attentive service. Would definitely go to them again!

Best formal wear around! When I was in high school, my date got his tux here for the prom. Now, my son is in high school, this is the only place I'll take him for his tux!

Keith was fantastic from the very first visit. He helped us find a good look for my son’s prom, called us back with info like he said he would, and was just a genuinely nice guy. All of the staff at Bernard’s is great! Their prices and selection are so much better than other formal wear stores, including Men’s Warehouse. Definitely recommend them!
