Suitably suited grooms and groomsmen

Grooms and groomsmen come in all shapes and sizes, which is why suit alterations are a popular choice amongst grooms, best man and groomsmen. We can tailor your suit jackets and pants to create a custom fit suit.


If you’re in the hunt for a wedding suit or a jacket and pant combination, we recommend choosing a size which provides good fit around the shoulder and armhole areas, as these are the trickiest and most costly areas of a jacket to get alter. In general, it’s always easier to take a garment in than let it out, so if in doubt, we’d recommend purchasing the next size up and we can tailor a wedding suit from there.
