Formal Hire FAQs

We understand that hiring formalwear can be confusing, with so many different styles and packages it's easy to get bogged down under evening jackets! Here we have collated the burning questions many people have sat on their checklist! So let's try and tick them all off!

Should we 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, but this obviously can soon add up if you are buying suits for everyone. However, it may be a possibility to buy your own suit and hire a suit for the rest of your party. Perhaps, you could even buy a bespoke suit, so you have the peace of mind that it fits you perfectly and has all of the styling details desired. 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 our most popular. We also offer a lounge suit, should you fancy something a little less formal. However, we do always advise you to pop in with an open mind and take 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 our most popular suit styles are black, blue, brown, grey and ivory.


Can my children hire suits? 

Of course, as a general rule, if they can walk we can fit them! We can also match the children to the adult suits. Unfortunately, our lounge suits, however, are only available for adults.


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

Yes, we have many styles in store to see. We may not have the exact size and colour of the style that you would like, however, we will have a size close so you can get a good idea. Also, remember to try the Outfit Builder Tool, where you can build your ideal outfit online and you can get your vision deliver to your local store.


What sizes do you go up to?

We start with a 20″ Chest (usually about 18 months old) all the way up to a 60″ chest. We cater for extra short and extra long, so height should not be an issue!


Do I have to book an appointment?

No, we have dedicated suit hire departments in our Wisbech, March, Spalding and Corby stores. We have a team of suit hire specialists that are happy to help, however, you can contact your local store to advise them of what you are looking for.


I am getting married abroad. Is this a problem?

Not a problem all, extended hire can easily be arranged for an extra cost.


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 fully bespoke suit service.

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact your local store.
