Tux Trade In Through Oct 30

If your tux is over a few years old, bring it in for a quick style evaluation. Tuxedos—worn infrequently —often go out of style long before they wear out. Strong Suit and Mattarazi tuxedos start at well under $700, and move up the spectrum from there with selections from Canali, Samuelsohn, Ermenegildo Zegna and Isaia. Show us your old tux and take 10% off any new model. And if the current one is still wearable, we’ll let you take it back home as a back-up.

Kilgore Trout is one of a select group of American stores to be regularly named an Italian Style Leader by Esquire, and has been named multiple times to Esquire's Best of Class list.  Says Esquire, "Of all men's stores in the country, these stores serve as the finest."

Why the name Kilgore Trout?

Kurt Vonnegut's famous alter-ego Kilgore Trout inspired us back in 1977.   And with Vonnegut's permission, we named the store for the character who appeared repeatedly throughout Vonnegut's literary work .  Next time you visit us, take a look at the original letter from Kurt, which we proudly display.
