Hi all,

My stepson is getting married soon. I have not owned a suit for over 30 years now so looking for some advice please.

Should I buy off the peg and get it altered or would it be best to have a bespoke suit tailored for me. I have a budget of approx £400 for this suit.

Can anyone recommend a tailor around Nn10 postcode area please?

    What kind of wedding is this? Does your suit have to be tailor made or can it be off the peg. What role are you playing at the wedding - just a guest albeit stepfather of the groom. Are they having a "wedding party" where members of the family are dressed similarly?

    I'd pop to Next or M&S and pick one up there, they have a variety of sizes to suit everyone's shape (usually) though this depends on what shape you are.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. I am just a guest. The family will be dressed similarly (waistcoat in pink or Cream unfortunately). I don't believe it has to be tailored but I am a slim build. Want to get a suit I actually look good in and just hanging off me and that's why I thought a tailored suit would be better.
