About Us is the online division of Mallin Investment Company, Inc dba Formalwear Outlet 415 Millstone Drive Hillsborough, NC 27278. We are a family owned and operated business that has been business for over 40 years. Owners Matt Pinkston and Elizabeth Sawyer will be happy to answer your questions by phone at 984-260-5768 Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm.

What sets us apart is that we sell tuxedos for less than the cost of a rental. We sell both new tuxedos and previously rented tuxedos as well as all accessories. Our previously rented tuxedos are of the same quality offered in any fine tuxedo shop. Please be assured that our staff at will carefully inspect every item before shipping to be sure it is the style, size, and color that you ordered, and free of defects. We will never send an item that does not meet our high standards. We carefully pack your order for shipping after our inspection is complete. When you receive your Tuxedo you want to allow time for simple alterations before your special occasion.

We also stock a large selection of new designer prom and evening gowns from designers including Alyce Paris, Ellie Wilde, Flair New York, Jovani, Rachel Allan and more in sizes from 0 to 30. All dresses are in stock in our Hillsborough warehouse. 

Because we stock most of our inventory most orders will ship one business day after the order is received. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!

Please note that we are taking a short time off to spend the Holidays with our Families from December 24 - January 1. Orders placed during this time will ship Monday January 4, 2021.
