How much notice do I need to give when hiring a suit?
With wedding suits we recommend you book as soon as possible to benefit
from the full range. However due to our large range of suits we can cater
for the more laid back. For Evening Wear one or two weeks in advance is
best. For that last minute invitation, we can often accommodate your needs.
Do I need to book an appointment to come and see you?
We will take appointments on Saturday and Thursday evenings, if you would
like to drop in you can Monday to Friday 9am to 5:30pm.
Who should we take with us to help choose?
Our advice would be for the bride and groom only for that initial viewing/trying
on. Too many opinions often confuse the issue and you can then send in
the rest of your wedding party at a later time to be fitted.
When are the suits available for collection and required
For weddings at the weekends collection is normally on Wednesday afternoon
if not before, For tuxedos, you can pick up your suit the day before after
3pm. Returns are the following day before 1pm.
When do I pay for the suit?
At the time of booking a small deposit is required. However if you pay
50% or more, you can enjoy great savings with our early payment discount
Do the men have to co-ordinate with the girls?
More often than not too much emphasis is put on the colour co-ordination
with the bridesmaids and not the actual effect of the overall outfit look
for the men.
Does the groom have to be different to the other men?
is very much personal choice. However if you do decide to have your groom
different it is essential that the change is in keeping with the rest
of the party.
Are all hire companies the same, how do we choose?
We would suggest that you visit a number of hire wear shops to get a feeling
for their service and range of styles so that you can best judge for yourself.
The criteria should be
- Range of styles
- Convenience and finally
Do you supply boy's wear?
Yes, from about two years old. Most of our styles are available in boy's
Can you make clothes and accessories from my own fabric?
Yes, let us know what you want and we will work out how much fabric you
Do all the members of my wedding party need to come
to the shop for the fitting?
We do encourage for you to try to bring all your wedding party to the
shop for their fitting. However if you have members living abroad or far
away we do belong to the Hirewear Network, which is a group of independent
hire wear shops willing to offer a measuring service.
Do you mail out brochures?
Sorry, we don't produce a brochure. If you have any questions not covered
here we will be happy to answer them. Please contact
us for more information.
