What is the occasion?
Knowing what the occasion is and the attire etiquette expected is a great place to start when considering hiring a suit. Suits are ideal for weddings, school balls, graduation ceremonies, black-tie events and special occasions.
There are also other factors that indicate what you could wear. For instance, is it being held during the day or in the evening? Is it black-tie or black-tie optional? Does the invitation provide info? Often these events will state the dress code and if it doesn’t we suggest asking other attendees what they will be wearing to the occasion. It is always better to be over-dressed than inappropriately dressed.
What date is the event?
The sooner you book a suit the better. This means that you won’t miss out, what you’re wearing is sorted and you won’t have to think about it again until you have to wear it. If you need a suit at times that are usually quite busy such as wedding or ball season, we definitely suggest booking ahead. For weddings we recommend that once the bridesmaids dresses are chosen you and your bride look into arranging suits for you and your groomsmen.
How do you choose the right suit hire store?
A reliable store will stock and supply all the accessories you need to complete your look. At TMS we measure you correctly and keep all our suits current and crisp looking by regularly updating our collection.
What is your budget?
Budget can be a factor if you are still deciding between suit hire or buying a suit. Suit rental is the easiest and most affordable option, especially if you need to hire several suits at one time like for groomsmen in a bridal party. Although it costs less than custom made, if you will be attending a few events over the next couple of years then you will need to consider that in the decision-making process.
