History

established in 1946

THE VERY FIRST

The very first tuxedo rental store in San Antonio, Rex Formal Wear has had its finger on the pulse of fashion for nearly 70 years. The company has been locally owned and operated since it was established in 1946 as a tailor’s shop on West Commerce Street in the heart of downtown. 

Since then, Rex has evolved and expanded, always embracing its rich history and traditional values while continuing to offer the highest quality and latest styles and designer fashions.

Exceptional Customer Service

For decades, Rex has prided itself in providing exceptional customer service and the very best prices. Many of Rex’s employees have been with the company for 20 years or more, and generations of families have remained loyal to Rex, returning again and again for all of their formal wear needs, from quinceaneras to proms to weddings.

One of San Antonio’s oldest

and most respected formal wear specialists, Rex offers one of the largest selections of designer formal wear in South Texas. Today, the company is a member of the International Formal Wear Association and maintains a strong presence on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
