General and Casual Suits
when choosing your wedding suit, don’t be influenced by anyone except yourself and maybe your bride. The “typical” formal wear suits hire offering often consists of heavier more durable fabrics with the design or fit being very square or generic. If you feel comfortable in that then that’s great, but don’t be persuaded by the sales assistant to go for something you don’t want just because there is nothing else on offer. Any decent company should offer you a variety of designs, fabrics and fits, with a variety of prices accompanying these.
this is becoming a tricky area as many a groom and his groomsmen are being heavily influenced by the “fashion suit”. This is a very tight, shorter style suit. I like this style but it isn’t very practical for a long wedding day, and more importantly can make a groom look no more special than a guest. It also raises that age old problem “my photos will look dated”. I have had many couples visit with this specific “modern man suit” idea in their minds who actually end up in our Designer Hire stuff, especially the tail coat. We say have an open mind when setting out.
I love suits so when someone says to me that I am being fussy, well it’s true. I am often asked how you know when a suit or outfit is “the one”. It is difficult to explain, and this will sound weird, but when you try on that perfect suit or outfit, you will just know. Again, don’t be influenced by others apart from the important people such as your bride. In theory the company you choose to supply your suit should also be able to offer experienced yet impartial advice, to agree with your choice or even nudge you in an even better direction.
