Beautiful suits and great service.

Hired 12 suits for my wedding on the 28th of may 2015 and couldn't fault the service or quality of the suits. We had a large party and couldn't get everyone to the shop in colchester to get measured so had to chance their measurements. The suits all fitted perfectly and everyone commented on how good they all looked. We were offered a personal courier service if a suit did not fit and the shop being closed the Wednesday, however we never needed this in the end. Would highly recommend!
