Can I place my hire order online?
You will be able to very soon. We are working on launching a newly transactional website. Please subscribe to our newsletter and we will inform you when we launch. You will be able to create your outfit, make payments, manage single and group orders, as well as selecting your delivery and return preferences. You will be able to arrange delivery and collection to home and business addresses, as well as stores. These changes are all geared around making things easier for you, the customer.
How long can I hire for?
Our standard hire period is 3 days.
What are the prices of extended hire?
Collect early, up to a week before wedding: £15.
1-4 days standard hire fee or 5-7 days £10 extra per day
8-14 days 1.5x hire fee
15-21 days 2x hire free
Every subsequent week an additional hire fee.
How long in advance should I book?
At least 6 weeks in advance for morningwear. Dresswear can be collected the same day if stock is available (pre-booking is still advised).
What is the initial payment?
We normally require at least 50% of the payment up-front for morningwear and highland wear.
For eveningwear we require full payment up-front
Can I return my suit to a different store to the one I collected from?
Yes, there is no extra charge if pre-arranged.
Can I book in one store and collect from another?
Yes, simply leave a deposit when you book and pay the balance on collection.
Can I place the order over the phone, or do I have to place the order in-store?
You will need to go into a store to pay an initial deposit to book the suits, as we do not accept payment over the telephone. You will soon be able to complete your hire transaction on this site, sign up to our newsletter and we will inform you when this is.
Do you alter any of the garments?
No, hire wear is not made-to-measure.
Do I have to leave a security deposit?
In order to hire a suit you will have to leave a £200 deposit (£400 for Highland Wear).
Can different members of the wedding party go to different stores for fittings and collection?
Yes, but you need a main store from where the organiser originally books from. All party members who are being fitted elsewhere must inform the store they are using of the main booking store, the party organiser's booking names and wear date e.g. The Jones Party at The Reading Branch. You will soon be able to manage group orders online.
