    Still debating on hiring or buying as lots of hire prices seem to be the price of a suit in the sales, but then I came across an ad on here, wondered if anyone had used f0rmally y0urs for suit hire? Looks very reasonable but want to see if people had used them and what they're actually like? If it where are yours from? So I can shove hubby in the right direction :)

    We are having the same debate at the moment on wether to hire or buy. I've seen some good hire deals the last few weeks and have shoved them under oh nose!

    Thing is if he bought, we literally go no where to wear a suit! We have 2 weddings before ours but he can't wear it then! Which is annoying we never have any social gatherings then 2 come along at once before our own bloody wedding! I quite liked that it was £57 all in and they do kids too, as I wasn't going to go for full suits for my sons was going to go with waistcoat and cravat but was fining it difficult to find somewhere that had all the same style waistcoats and moss bros and youngs are expensive!

    £57 is very good! yes we looked in moss bros and it was very expensive and didn't have a great range tbh not in grey suites anyway xx

    Yeah which is why I wondered if there's a reason they're so cheap! Yeah I found with moss they don't have the waistcoats I was looking for either and the guys in the shop were less than helpful when I enquired!

    My OH wants to buy his suit but we are thinking about asking the other groomsmen to hire theirs.. not sure if we will be paying for them yet as I think they want to put the money in themselves. If they want to buy their own suits rather than hire then that's cool with us too :)

    He might not ever wear his suit again if he buys it, but I guess it's the same sentiment as a wedding dress.. You probably wouldn't just hire a wedding dress and you will probably just keep it stored away somewhere for the rest of your life without even looking at it again lol xx
