Hi all

My brother's wedding is in September this year. We are just looking at suits and I am appauled at the costs of hiring! In one store today (Greenwoods) they had tailcoat for hire at £130 inc trousers, waistcoat, shirt and tie......Then on the rails had a very similar suit, same material nearly identical colour, for sale at £117!!! didn't include the shirt and tie but was a nice 3 piece suit. My brother is adament on tails for himself but these suits wouldn't quite match exactly with his.

I don't think I have ever hired anything in my life other than maybe a car on holiday and would much prefer to buy the suit to wear in the future. I am getting married next year and would be happy to wear the same suit for that.

Does anyone know of a place that sells maybe ex hire suits? or any other options so as not to spend over £500 on 4 suits to wear for a day? We would be happy to pay around £150 per suit to buy.

Many thanks
