FAQs Formal Hire


So you are now engaged (congratulations!), or maybe even planning ahead for when you do become engaged? Either way, when it comes to the wedding suits, we know that most people generally have a check list of things to cover. So let’s try and tick them all off:

“Are we best to hire our suits or buy them?” 

This depends on your budget. We feel that it looks great to have a few people all in matching outfits, so this can soon add up if you are buying suits for everyone. However, it may be possible to buy your own suit and hire a suit for the rest of your party. Perhaps you could even buy a bespoke suit, so that it fits you perfectly and has all of the styling details you would like. You could then just hire a waistcoat and cravat to tie in with the rest of the party.


“Do you have many different styles to choose from?” 

Yes, we offer a range of suits to hire. The Tailcoat suit and the Prince Edward suit are the most popular. We also offer a lounge suit, should you fancy something a little less formal. It’s best for you to pop in and have a look.


“Do you have many different coloured suits?” 

Yes, we offer a range of colours in most of our hire suits. The colours offered in the most popular suit styles are black, slate grey, mid grey, navy and brown. We also offer some suits in cream, which may be a good option of you are getting married abroad.


“Can my Children hire suits?” 

Yes, as a general rule, if they can walk we can fit them in a suit to match the adults! The lounge suits however are only available for adults.


“Do you have suits in store for me to try on?” 

Yes, we have every style of suit in store to see. We may not have the exact size in the style and colour that you would like for you to try on, however we will have a size close you that you can get a good idea. Why not try the Outfit Builder Tool, where you can build your ideal outfit online.


“What sizes do you go up to?” 

We start from a 20″ Chest (usually about 18 months old) all the way up to a 60″ chest. We cater from an extra short, to an extra long, so height is also not an issue.


“Do I have to book an appointment?” 

No, we have dedicated suit hire departments in both stores and our suit hire specialists are always here to help. So you can visit whenever you like.


“I am getting married abroad. Is this a problem?”

No problem, extended hire can easily be arranged.


“Can I purchase a new outfit?”

Yes, we stock a great range of lounge suits, evening suits, shirts, shoes and accessories. If we don’t have what you require in stock we can usually order it, with delivery in a couple of days… We also offer a full bespoke suit service.
