Men’s Wearhouse has entered into an exclusive agreement with TheKnot.com under which it will be the tuxedo provider for the popular Web site.
“As the largest tuxedo rental service company in North America, we are excited to announce this formalwear marketing relationship with the number-one wedding planning resource, TheKnot.com,” said Doug Ewert, chief executive officer of The Men’s Wearhouse Inc. “Brides will now be able to view Men’s Wearhouse’s complete tuxedo inventory selection on TheKnot.com, as well as have direct access to our proprietary ‘Build-a-Tux’ tool, which allows a bride to easily conceptualize and coordinate outfitting the groom, groomsmen and father of the bride on her big day.” The “Build-a-Tux” tool allows brides to browse more than 2,000 tuxedo styles and accessory color combinations.
David Liu, ceo and cofounder of XO Group Inc., parent of TheKnot.com, said the company is pleased about its tie-up with Men’s Wearhouse.
The association also allows men to choose which of the more than 900 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux locations bridal parties can pick up and drop off their tux rentals.
The deal extends into Canada, where 117 of the company’s Moores Clothing for Men stores will also be participating.
“We have a long-term agreement with David’s that remains unaffected by the new ownership,” he said. “Our new relationship with TheKnot does not impact the David’s relationship but rather serves to strengthen our formalwear business.”
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
