About Us

Our Story

Derks Formals and Menswear was founded in 1939 in Čakovec, Croatia by Stephen Derk. In 1946, Stephen and his family immigrated to Canada and began offering Western Canadian men choices for their clothing needs. Since that time, Derks has become an icon in the formalwear industry and one of Western Canada’s wholesale and retail success stories. Much of that success has been based on building relationships with staff, suppliers, the community, and most importantly, clients.
One of the goals at Derks is to "make our company a part of our clients' lives from the time of their grade nine and grade 12 graduations...to their friends, their own and their children's and grandchildren's wedding celebrations." "Listening and paying attention to the needs of our customers are key factors in the building of long-lasting relationships and is why we have developed a consultative approach to sales," explains President and owner, Darrell Derk. The Derks team works with their clients to better understand each individual's style, needs and the types of clothing that best suit their individual lifestyle.
