Finding something to wear to a formal event like a wedding is sometimes daunting. Formal, semiformal and black tie each have different meanings in terms of clothing. That’s where Newman & Co. can help. The high-end men’s consignment boutique specializes in men’s clothing and accessories, from designer lines to casual, everyday wear.

“My parents, Jeff and Amanda Newman, purchased the store in 2008, and then several years ago we changed the name to Newman & Co.,” says Manager Wyatt Newman. “We have another consignment store in Carmel called Amanda’s Exchange that has been in business for 20 years.”

Newman says both stores are truly family owned and operated, and they pride themselves on treating customers like family. Newman says customers can come in and receive a personalized shopping experience.

“We can help, whether a customer is looking for day-to-day pieces to wear, workwear or even formal wear,” Newman says. “If a customer comes in looking for something to wear to a special event like a wedding, we can help them determine if a suit or a tuxedo, or something in between, is appropriate.”

Newman says the staff will measure the customer to ensure the perfect fit, and assist them in finding something that works for the event and suits their individual style. He says the staff at Newman & Co. are not only knowledgeable, but also love helping clients find the perfect outfit.

The consignment store prides itself on being a one-stop shop for all things related to men’s clothing and accessories. Newman says the staff can also help customers find the perfect belt, hat or shoes to add flair to an outfit.

“We try to help you find something that you’re going to look great in, but also be comfortable wearing,” he says. “Let’s be honest. If you find a great jacket but take it off once you’re at the dinner table, then it’s not worth it. We’re never going to try and sell you something you’re not going to feel comfortable in.”

Newman & Co. only accepts pieces of the highest quality, which sets them apart from many other consignment stores. They only buy items in excellent condition, currently in style, and from smoke-free homes.

“With us being a consignment store, everything we accept is like a one-of-a-kind piece for our customers,” Newman says. “Many of our regulars come in frequently to see the new items we have because we receive new items daily. It’s a great way for people to get exposure to different designers. It’s almost like a new store every day.”

Newman says many of the formal pieces they receive have only been worn a few times. Typically they’re from high-end designers, which means a high-quality item at a lower price point.

Don’t expect to find vintage pieces at Newman & Co. Newman says there are a lot of great vintage stores in Indianapolis, so they leave that to the experts. The team members want to provide a regular retail shopping experience, without the pressure of a salesperson.

Newman says the benefits of purchasing consignment items go beyond just cost. He says buying resale items promotes sustainability, noting that clothing is just as important as recycling goods.

Newman says they love catering to wedding parties, not just wedding guests. He says they can assist the groom and groom’s party in choosing formal wear. All potential clients need to do is make an appointment by contacting the store.

“In the past we’ve had fitting parties where the groom can come in after hours with his groomsmen, the father of the groom and father of the bride,” Newman says. “We can have snacks and drinks, and have a fitting party. It makes it super easy for them.”

Newman says their clientele varies in age, and the staff tries to keep that in mind when accepting items. They try to accept a wide range of sizes even though items are unique and somewhat one of a kind. He says people’s attitudes toward purchasing
