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.”

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
