Savvi MN Tuxedos and More: A Brief History

Savvi Formalwear has been Minnesota’s premier provider of
men’s formalwear for weddings, prom, college formals and black tie events for
over 40 years. The Southdale Center, in Edina, is home to our very first
location, built by our current owner’s father in 1972. Originally named Gingiss
Formalwear, in 2004 our name changed to Savvi Formalwear. By 2005 we grew to
nine locations across the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. In 2012, it was time for a
major expansion. We acquired Nedrebo’s Formalwear (, based out of Madison,
Wisconsin and added six more retail stores. Then in late 2013, the tuxedo
rental landscape underwent a change when Anderson’s Formalwear went out of
business. We acquired our 17
th location, inside of Angelique’s
Bridal Salon, in Blaine, Minnesota.


While our locations have been expanding so has our selection
of merchandise. We offer hundreds of the latest designer styles in tuxedos and
formalwear accessories. Michael Kors, Allure Men, Ike Behar, Joseph Abboud,
Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis, Calvin Klein and our own proprietary line, Savvi
Black Label, are all included in our expansive merchandise selection. We will
always strive to offer the latest in designer labels and current styles.
