We have been assisting wedding parties with their outfits for many years. Here are some of our most commonly asked questions. If you’d like expert assistance first hand, then visit our showroom or contact us today.
Q. How far in advance do the Groom and Groomsmen need to book outfits?
At the very least, we recommend 3 months in advance; however some of our clients book as early as 6 months in advance. This is particularly important during peak wedding times (Spring, Summer and Autumn or September to April). If you happen to have left it too late, we are happy to help you find something within a few weeks of your function’s date.
Q. Do we need to bring the entire wedding party (Best Man, Groomsmen, Page Boys, Fathers) when we are selecting your outfits?
We recommend visiting us with your fiancé first. During this visit, we can discuss styles, themes, colours, formality and any other requirements you have without the interruption of others. The rest of the party can come in at their convenience or as a group at a later date.
Q. Some Groomsmen, Fathers and Guests are overseas and only arriving several days before the wedding What do we do? What measurements do we need?
No need to worry. Our ‘Self Measuring Chart’ is available as a hard copy or in a PDF format and can be sent to those who need it. The chart details what measurements are required and how to perform these measurements, allowing outfits to be reserved in advance. When the guests arrive in Perth, they can come in for a confirmation fitting to ensure their suit fits perfectly. Minor adjustments can then be made just prior to the function date.

Q. Do i need to make an appointment?
Appointments are recommended but not absolutely necessary. Thursday and Saturday nights are our busiest times. To get the most out of your time with us, give us a call beforehand and arrange an appointment with one of our consultants. That way you’re guaranteed to receive the service we pride ourselves on.
Q. How long should we allow for a first fitting appointment?
Most people select their suit within 30 minutes to an hour. If you’ve already made your selection and just need to have your groomsmen fitted, then depending on numbers, it will take about 30 minutes.
Q. When ca we pick up and return our outfits?
Outfits are generally ready for collection 2 days before the function. If your function is on a Saturday, then most fittings are completed on the Thursday beforehand. This final fitting is to ensure all garments fit correctly. If alterations need to be made for any reason, such as changes in size or weight, this can usually be sorted out immediately. To avoid delays, we strongly recommend you make an appointment for final fittings.
Suits and accessories must be returned by 12 noon the next trading day after your function. If you’re attending a function overseas or interstate, we can accommodate for later returns.
