Glad Rags Formal Wear

What Makes Renting your Formal Wear from Glad Rags Boutique Different from the Big Box Retailers?

First, is our selection.  Glad Rags Boutique Formal Wear offers one of the largest selections of quality Tuxedos and Suits for Proms, Weddings and Special Events that you can find in Jo Daviess/Stephenson County, Illinois area.  We offer both Jim’s Formal Wear and Formal Wear – two of the largest distributors of men’s formal wear in the nation – and all under one roof! You can browse the selection from both of our distributors by clicking on their logos shown here.

Second, is our mission.  We are dedicated to making your big event easier and less stressful.  We believe that we can make renting formal wear much easier and more fun!  Ask us about our services such as in home/school tuxedo fittings and in school pickups for Prom or our Wedding Concierge Service to local destination wedding venues.  Glad Rags Boutique combines an amazing selection of product with smart and practical ways to better serve our customers.  We specialize in creativity, utilizing technology, and bringing a fresh perspective to the formal wear industry by offering  unique services to make your day special.

Third, is our attitude.  At Glad Rags Boutique, we don’t expect your business.  We simply want the chance to earn it.  We believe strongly in our ability to out-serve everyone else in the industry near Stockton in the Jo Daviess/Stephenson County area.  We invite you to give us the opportunity to impress you and we are confident in our ability to do so.

Glad Rags Boutique Formalwear specializes in making things easier and more efficient for Brides & Grooms leading up to the big day.

We’d like to size your wedding party ourselves to ensure the best fit . . .but we know that is not always possible, or practical, for those coming from out of town. We belong to a network of other formal wear shops, who will take your measurements for you for free. Then, you can submit them directly to us and also arrange for drop shipment of your tuxedo through our Tux Direct program. This ensures that your out of town groomsmen will have the perfect fit for the wedding day with no last minute alterations and substitutions needed.

For Best service, please call to make arrangements for your fittings during our regular business hours or make an after hours appointment for guaranteed personal attention.

During the Prom Season (Mid-March thru Early-May) we extend our store hours to accommodate the busy schedules of the students. We also offer Tuxedo Fittings at local schools either before school or during lunch hour (if permitted by current status). We also offer pick up service at the school on the Monday following Prom. We pride ourselves on saving you not only time but money during the rental process.

Ask About our Tux Bucks Assistance Program. This program was implemented to assist students who would not normally be able to afford to attend Prom because of the cost involved. A special account has been set up to collect funds for this program. Glad Rags donates a portion of every tuxedo rental during the Prom season to this fund and holds Bag Sales where the proceeds will also benefit the fund.  Donations to this fund are collected year round.
