Tuxedo Source for Sports is a Canadian retailer of sports equipment, mainly hockey and bicycles, based in Calgary, Alberta. Founded by the Gregory family[1] in 1960[2] as "Tuxedo Cycle & Sports" in the Tuxedo area of Calgary, the store has remained family owned ever since and has become a staple of the Tuxedo area of Calgary,[3] with many local residents only being aware of the small community due to their knowledge of the store and its location.
"Tuxedo", as it is commonly known, is most renowned for their hockey selection and for carrying such brands as Bauer, Easton and Graf. Despite their later success as a hockey retailer, Tuxedo, who were one of the first major bicycle stores in Calgary along with Bow Cycle and Ridley Cycle, have steadily maintained their reputation in the cycling community, being one of the few specialty bicycle shops in northern Calgary.[4] Specialized and Giant have been their two main lines of bicycles for a number of years.

On May 15, 2010, Tuxedo held a gala evening at McMahon Stadium's Red and White Club to celebrate the store's 50th anniversary.[5]
