Location & Contact Details
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Classic, Contemporary, Unique, Stylish & Tailored.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The fantastic feedback we get from our couples, check out our 5 star Facebook reviews.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan in advance! For us, key weekends such as bank holidays fill up extremely fast and we often close our books for those particular dates 9-10 months before.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We recommend that couples come in on their own for their initial consultation as it works so much better with fewer opinions. During this initial consultation, we will spend an hour with the couple, dressing the groom until they find their ideal look. Once the couple have booked, we'd arrange for the rest of the wedding party to be measured up around 12 weeks before the wedding. The suits are then available to collect 3 days before. During this process, we are in constant contact with our couples to ensure that everything runs smoothly and on time.
What are your favourite wedding traditions for men?
We don't believe in sticking to tradition, we believe that every wedding should be as individual as the couple want it to be. The one thing we would advise is to have a strong stand-out look for the groom.
What is the best way to make the groomsmen stand out from the crowd?
Creating a stand-outlook for the groom and his groomsmen is what we pride ourselves on and can be done in a number of ways using contrast waistcoats, jackets, trousers and accessories – the options are endless! Steering away from traditional wedding attire, our contemporary suits are a cut above the rest, allowing the groom & his groomsmen to stand out from the crowd.
Why is groomswear just as important as bridalwear?
We believe that the groom should always compliment the bride and vice versa! The lasting memory for every couple is their wedding photos, so it’s equally important for the groom to get his outfit right. And why not celebrate the importance of your wedding day in the best suit you’ll ever wear?
What is the most original outfit you have seen a groom wear?
We help each and every one of our grooms to create their own original outfit to suit their style and personality.
