Hire Your Suit

To hire a look for your next event there are a few steps to take to get yourself suited...

  • Pre-book your event date with the team
  • Make an appointment for a fitting day to try on styles & sizes
  • Book your favourite look for the event
  • Pick-ups for a suit hire are generally on a Thursday and returns are on Monday

Suit Trends & Tips

So what is trending in menswear? Tony gives us the lowdown.

  • Try a quirky sports coat and chinos for a daytime event like the races. This is a great time to use colour, and pattern and make the look your own.
  • A two-button, single-breasted suit in the best-selling and most flattering jacket style.
  • Use the ALWAYS or NEVER principle with jacket buttons. Always button the top button when standing, never button up two buttons on your jacket. Unbutton all when sitting.
  • Suits are slim. Try a slimmer fit tailored jacket and an extreme slim or stovepipe pant for a modern look.
  • Quirky ties, bow ties, and pocket squares are perfect for the races.
