FOLLOWING THE PRIME MINISTER'S STATEMENT OF 23 FEBRUARY WE'RE PLANNING TO RE-OPEN OUR SHOPS AS NORMAL FROM MONDAY 21 JUNE
IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU'D LIKE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT PLEASE USE THE FORM UNDER OUR "INFORMATION" MENU
WE CAN ALWAYS RE-ARRANGE SHOULD WE NEED TO DO SO
Remember that the Government's "road map" dates are "NOT EARLIER THAN" and are subject to "meeting the tests", so these dates could still change
As you know we’re a small independent business and that may well be one of the reasons you’ve chosen to use us to help with your special day. We always aim to look after our customers to the best of our ability and just because times may be more challenging than usual that won’t change things for us. We’ll just be trying even harder!
We'll update this information on a regular basis as things develop and more information becomes available.
But, please, do contact us to talk through any concerns that you might have.
If you've been forced to change the date of your wedding (or even if you're just thinking it through at the moment) we’ll happily do anything we can to help. Just let us know what you need and we’ll chat it through with you and work out the best solution.
In order to play our part in supporting the Government's social distancing advice we took the decision to close our shops to the public unless by special appointment even before we were required to do so. This has better enabled us to protect ourselves and our customers at this difficult time.
When we're not in the shop we're monitoring emails from home and phone lines are diverted to mobiles so that we’re able to respond to your enquiries.
We'll do our best to make arrangements for any existing customers to collect their pre-booked hired or purchased outfits at a time to be pre-arranged, and we'll make them available earlier than planned at no additional cost, so please contact us to make these arrangements.
If you have existing orders which you need to postpone or cancel please email the appropriate shop with a few details and we'll get back to you.
Any customers who are wanting to place orders for use in the future, especially weddings which you are planning for 2021 or 2022, please email or call us so that we can discuss your options and talk through how we can be of help to you.
We're all in this together, so let's help each other to get through this tough time and come out of it in good shape.
STAY SAFE EVERYBODY!

Here at DAPPER Formalwear for Men we’ve been offering a unique personal suit hire service to our customers since 1991 and we've been awarded the title of BEST MENSWEAR SUPPLIER, London and the South East, at The Wedding Industry Awards, 2015, 2016 and 2017. We were also recently national finalists in the BEST GROOMSWEAR RETAILER category at the Bridal Buyer Awards. In 2017 we were named the UK NATIONAL WINNER in the Guides for Brides CUSTOMER SERVICE AWARDS 2017. From hundreds of men's suit hire shops all around the UK, we’re pretty proud of that! We are also the founder GROOMSWEAR member of the BRITISH BRIDAL RETAILERS ASSOCIATION.
If it’s menswear hire or rental that you’re looking for, then look no further. DAPPER Formalwear for Men can supply all of your men’s wear suit hire needs for that special occasion. Whether it's a wedding or a trip to the Ascot races, a Black Tie event or a school Prom, a Royal Garden Party or a White Tie invitation, we have everything from classic to contemporary and designer dress wear, including Highland Wear and Kilts, all available to hire or to buy.
Unlike many other men’s suit hire shops, we own our stock and keep hundreds of wedding suits, dinner jackets, tuxedos, morning suits, waistcoats and accessories on the premises in each of our shops, all available to hire or to buy. This gives DAPPER Formalwear for Men an edge over many of our local competitors and allows us to maintain our own very high standards of quality control. With each of our shops having its own alteration workshop on the premises, we are able to make small adjustments to your garments to achieve a better fit and, if necessary, at very short notice.
