When can we order our suits?
There is no fixed time but we generally recommend you order them a couple of months before the wedding date. However, people may wish to be really organised and book a year in advance. Equally, they may book suits right up to the week before the wedding.
How long may we keep the suits and when do we collect them?
Generally when they are rented they are collected two days before the wedding and dropped back the day after. People buying the suits can usually take them away when they choose and obviously there is no question of needing to return the suits.With rented suits they can be collected sooner than that and there is no problem dropping them back a few days after the wedding if there is a legitimate reason.
Do we need an appointment to try on suits?
Generally we recommend that you make an appointment as you can be assured the best levels of service. There is, however, no problem if you wish to come in and browse through the selection without a prior appointment.As we are Ireland’s most well known wedding suits shop it can be busy especially on weekends so again we do recommend calling ahead.
Does everyone in the bridal party come in when we are selecting the suits?
Generally only the bride and groom come in for the selection process.Sometimes the groomsmen will accompany them.
When does somebody else come in to be measured?
Once the suits have been selected by the bride and groom, the rest of the party can start coming in, in the following weeks. Also, if a member of the party cannot make it for a fitting, He can refer to our sizing guide
Must they all come in together?
Generally there is no need for everybody to come on together. They can come in individually and if there is a large group coming in, they should make an appointment. An appointment is not needed for 3 or less people.
If we choose to buy suits, can we rent the waistcoats, shirts and ties?
Generally if a wedding party chooses to buy the suits from us, we will offer them the waistcoats, shirts and ties for rent as long as they are returned after the wedding.
Can you make the ties or cravats, if we want an exact match of the bridesmaid’s dresses?
Cravats and ties can be made to order. We can source the material from a fabric supplier or you can purchase it yourself. There is a surcharge for this service.Nowadays many people will ask us to customize some part of the outfit.If we have spare fabric we can for example make a bow in the material of the suit or in the color of the bridesmaids dresses.
We have heard misfortunate stories about suits not fitting the morning of the wedding and the general appearance of suits not being up to standard. How do we know this will not happen if we hire/buy suits with you?
Regrettably, there have been many instances of suits not matching up to people’s expectations. When you hire or buy suits with us, you can be assured your expectations will be met. We have experienced, well trained professional staff and all our suits are stocked in the store. When we hire/sell suits to a wedding party we only offer mix and match options.Some stores will try to sell you wedding suits that you cannot mix and match the sizes. Not being able to do this is a recipe for disaster.

Are shoes and cufflinks included in the standard package?
