Wedding fashion for couples can be a rather lopsided affair. For grooms, the options for what to wear on the big day can be limited and dull. We’re here to turn the tables and let the groom show their unique personality with our range of suits and alternative accessories service. We stock vintage style tweed suits for hire and have our Own Your Own made to measure service to take your suit fit to the next level. The Vintage Suit Hire Company is based in Bedford, but can deliver suits nationwide to grooms looking for something a little different and special. We also have a concession in The Wedding Hub in Plymouth, Legend Bridal Designs in Blackburn and the Bedfordshire Beard Company in Glasgow. Our locations are open by appointment only so get in touch to book yourself in for a consultation!
