10/07/21 – Jeff from San Francisco asked:
“I will be attending a wedding in Saltaire 2 April 2022. Since I live in San Francisco and will be travelling for a month prior in Morocco I would prefer NOT to haul fine garments around with me. If I send you my measurements could you have something suitable for me to wear at the wedding for hire. I will be arriving on 31 March 2022. And I don’t have a clue what folks deem appropriate for a male wedding guest to wear in England. Thanks! Jeffrey Jones”
Sure we can certainly help.
The guest suits for weddings here in the UK can be either a:
1. Morning Suit ideally black tailcoat with grey waistcoat and grey striped trousers (please see it here https://www.hirefive.co.uk/product/ascot-premium-black-morning-suit-weddings/)
2. Or you can do the same with a Navy Tailcoat (https://www.hirefive.co.uk/product/gallant-premium-navy-morning-suit/).
Other than a morning suit, you can opt for a standard suit in Navy or Grey. Here are the two recommendations:
1. Our Premium Navy Suit in 3 Piece with Matching Waistcoat – https://www.hirefive.co.uk/product/swell-premium-french-navy-suit-hire/
2. Our Silver Grey Suit in 3 Piece with Matching Waistcoat – https://www.hirefive.co.uk/product/swank-light-grey-wedding-suit/
Once you’ve decided the suit choice, you can then send us your measurements via this form.
When we receive your measurements, we can send you an invoice for you to pay or you can pay directly via our website. As for the collection and return, we give the suits our 2 days before the function (sometimes 3 days subject to availability and our discretion) and expect the suits to be returned 2 days after. We may charge late return fee after the agreed date of return, which is £10 per suit per day.
Please let us know if the following dates work for you.
Collection: Wednesday 30th March 2022
Return: Monday 4th April 2022
We can always ship the suit to a UK address to arrive on the 30th if you wish and a can also arrange a collection (return of the suit). If you decide that you’d like us to deliver and collect the suit via post / Courrier, we can do so at a cost. Your refundable security deposit, however, will be £300 instead of our standard £200 that we will ask you to pay at the time of collection. The security deposit is refunded 3 days after the suit is returned safely and undamaged.

“Our wedding has been postponed three times due to Covid so now that it’s actually allowed to happen we are getting things done. I am looking to purchase my suit as the groom and then rent 4 further suits for best man and groomsmen (although your suits are amazing so they might actually opt to buy them) plus my father wants to get a suit as well. I appreciate that it’s late notice compared to most people but do you think you would be able to meet us for a fitting/make this in time at either Guildford or Basingstoke? I am especially interested in the Navy Tweed Suit. If you think the time frame is okay then please let me know and we will sort getting everyone in one place :)” – Wedding date 18/09/21
Sure we can help no worries. The rule is still the same, the earlier you book and provide us the measurements for the groomsmen, the better will be the availability of the suits that we can offer you. Are you available next week on Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday?
