My partner and I have had to unfortunately postpone our wedding twice due to COVID. Ian and the team have been nothing short of amazing. Professional and accommodating with no request being too much of a problem. The selection of suits were fantastic and the team were able to help me and my groomsmen with fittings and bespoke requests. I would recommend DAPPER to anyone and if I have a formal event in future I will be definitely be using the teams services again. 10/10 to Ian and the Team.

Eddie, January 2021

Excellent service even though we're in lockdown. Communication was fantastic and the whole process was explained in a clear manner. Dapper was recommended to me by a few people and I'll be doing the same thing! Thanks to Ian and the team for all their help.

Ross Eady, January 2021

Having left the suits to just over a month before the wedding, we were really pleased with the service we received from Ian at Dapper; especially with the added uncertainty of changing restrictions and new lockdowns! The Groom and Best Man's suits are of great quality and looked amazing on the day. Thanks Ian x

Sarah and Dean, December 2020

Very accommodating, helpful. Very nice suits and lots of choices of suits and nothing was to much trouble would highly recommend to anyone thinking of hiring a suit.

James Sponder, December 2020

An absolutely amazing kilt hire experience from start to finish. Ian and the team were incredibly helpful with all of our wedding party’s queries right up until the day of the wedding. The kilts were amazing quality and on the day we all looked the part. Couldn’t recommend Dapper highly enough.

Ben S. October 2020

Ian was really helpful in ensuring we had the right outfit available for me and my best man especially during the restrictions we have had this year and the short notice of us going ahead in August. Great service - thank you Ian

Ian Annis, September 2020

We hired suits for the groom, 5 groomsmen and both fathers from Dapper in Dorking for our wedding September 2020. Every visit was very professional and friendly (pre and during COVID restrictions). Thank you Ian and the team. We would highly recommend them (5 stars!). We will be using their service again in two years time for renewing vows.

Vicky and Sam, September 2020

I rented my wedding suits from Dapper Surbiton in September 2020. Ian and Dave were extremely helpful and understanding throughout the process, especially given the current challenging circumstances. From arranging appointments for fitting to pickup and return, they showed great flexibility and were always available to answer any questions. Will definitely recommend for anyone looking for hassle free wedding attire rental / purchase from experts in the business.

Suhail Khan, September 2020

Excellent service. Great communication during the Covid lockdown. Would definitely use again.

Stewart Hilton, August 2020

Had an appointment with dapper today and it was extremely good. With all that is currently going on we both felt very safe and it still had the relaxed atmosphere. The man was very helpful and informative and helped us come to a perfect decision for our wedding. Thank you dapper!

Madison, August 2020

I used Dapper suits for my wedding and we rented 12 suits using an offer of renting 12 and getting 3 for free. The fittings were great and everyone looked amazing on the day.
Jack Vine, March 2020

Thank you for all of your help with the suits for our wedding - they were just perfect and exactly what Grant had in mind.  The wedding party looked fab and very smart!! The look you helped to create for Grant along with the extra bits like the pocket watch, tie and tie clip was exactly what he wanted and he was chuffed with the outcome.
Thank you for being so accommodating and helpful over the last 6 months and for making the whole process of buying and hiring our wedding suits so smooth.

Best wishes,
Jacq & Grant, October 2019

Dear Ian at Dapper
Thank you so much for helping me with the most incredible Morning Suit for Ellie Goulding's wedding. I managed to look the part (even next to Royalty) thanks to your Dapper suit!
Thanks for always delivering the goods!!
All the best,
Faisal, September 2019

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to send a message to say thank you again for the suits for our wedding. We had an amazing day and they were just what we were looking for! Sorry it's taken so long but as promised here are some photos, feel free to use any if you wish.
Kindest regards,
Michelle and Michael Saunders, August 2019

We had an amazing day and are attaching some photos of the suits in action. Feel free to share them how you please.
Lucy and Tristram Cole, August 2019

Amazing service and very accommodating. The suits were perfect and even on the morning of the wedding they were happy to make adjustments to the best mans suit.

Would highly recommend Dapper and thank you to the whole team.

Jemma Starling and Sean Phillips, August 2019

Hi Ian,
Could you please put something about the suits and the whole experience with yourselves on your website? My guests did love the suits.  I've done a review on Facebook after the wedding.
I'm attaching some photos for you also.  The picture of Kim and her Dad is one of the last few photos we have of him as he passed away on the plane as we returned from holiday/honeymoon so this is a special picture.
Glenn Hollands, July 2019

Hi David and Bo.

I hope all is well and guessing still very busy? As promised please find attached pictures of the big day you both helped become possible. The boys including myself looked a million dollars and everyone complimented how great the suits looked.
You guys did a fantastic job and you both went above and beyond with the service as always.

Once again thank you sooo much and hope to see you again soon for another suit. Full recommendations go out to anyone looking for a suit.

Gareth Williams. July 2019

Many thanks to all at Dapper for providing and tailoring the men’s outfits, they looked great and the collection service from the hotel was an added bonus. 
July 2019

Hi guys,
I hope all is well.
I thought I would share a photo of the guys in the suits earlier this year. It was a great day and the suits were perfect so thanks again!
Bill Hawes, June 2019

Hi team, We finally got our wedding photos back so thought I’d send a couple across because the suits couldn’t have looked any better. Made me feel very James Bond on my big day! Again, thanks for the great service you provided from start to finish. Will definitely be recommending you to friends.

Adam July 2019 Adam July 2019


We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the impeccable service provided with regards to the hiring of the suits for our wedding day.  The service was first class and the suits looked amazing on the day.  I have attached a couple of photos for you.
Sarah and Ian Calder, September 2018

To everyone at Dapper,

Thank you so much for providing all the lovely suits for our wedding this September.

You guys were great and ensured all the men looked smart and handsome on the day.

We would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting great service and lovely suits!

Dear Ian & Team,

Wanted to say a massive thank-you for your excellent and professional service when hiring my wedding suits for our wedding on 30/12/15. Apologies for the late reply but we were waiting for our photos to come back to share with you.

I would personally like to say a massive thankyou to Ian for coming on his day off on the morning of the wedding to make minor amendments. It was a true sign of a very professional company and service you provided throughout the process. The suits looked amazing as expected and cant thankyou enough for all your hard work and patience with me!!

I can’t recommend you highly enough and have put the word out to all my friends, family and colleagues. Thanks again for making our day that bit extra special.

Mike and Rachel.

Thank you ever so much for helping us with our suits, I felt really comfortable in them and they looked amazing...The amount of positive comments we received about our shoes was incredible!! We were very pleased with the service you provided at my Sisters and Brother-In-Laws (Tamara and Dan Hudson) wedding, that we pretty much knew we wanted to use you again and your service didn't disappoint, very professional and helpful especially with my wheelchair bound Father.

Please see below some images from the official wedding photographer on the day of the suits, please feel free to use them on your website or facebook page

 Many thanks again,

No doubt we will meet soon when we come down for my brother's wedding!!

 Kind Regards

Hi Ian,

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful suits we hired from you for our wedding. You helped make the process straight forward even though were we organising it from New Zealand. You also showed great patience with us when we changed our minds at short notice!  I have attached a couple of photos of the men in their suits.

Thanks again

Dear All,

Like most girls I had dreams when I was growing up about my wedding day, but having worked in the wedding industry for almost 20 years, there aren’t many girls who can say they actually met and got to know most of their wedding suppliers before they had even met their Groom! I always knew my suppliers were going to play a huge role in making our day special, and also in helping me with the planning and adding the amazing finishing touches, so I knew I needed a team I could rely on and bounce ideas off, a team who understood Dan and I and the emotional journey we had been on to get u to our day. With my knowledge of the industry I knew my wedding suppliers were going to be just as much part of our day as all our family and friends. They would become our friends, and not one of them let us down, our day was truly amazing!

As with any blockbuster movie or classic theatre production, the production team are the true talent, they are the people that bring the story to life and make the dream come true. So as a BIG thank you for all their help and support in making our day so special we would like to share this little video with you all and we highly recommend each and every one of our wonderful suppliers…including Dapper Dorking.


Hi Ian,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a BIG thank you for your help with making our day so perfect!

We had an amazing day and all my favourite boys looked stunning, their suits looked perfect, everything I'd imagined and hope for!

I'll certainly continue to recommend Dapper to all my clients!

Thank you again for all your help and expertise! 

Best wishes

The new Mrs Sophia Wyatt!

We had an unbelievably brilliant weekend. I have uploaded a couple of photos take by guests but when I have some of the formal ones through, I will pop some of those up also. 

Many thanks again for your excellent service and suits - would recommend you and Dapper over the big department stores for suit hire any day!  

All the best,



I was very pleased with all aspects of your service and will certainly  use again .

Stephen Millen

Hi Ian

Thanks so much for the amazing service we received. You were extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

The fact you were able to manage to change the sizes of an outfit for my brother coming from Spain one hour before the wedding was truly amazing.

Once again, thanks so much.

Esther and Roberto

Hello Ian and team,

We had an amazing day thank you so much for your huge part in it as everyone loved the Suits they looked amazing and even unreliable I'll leave it to the last minute Warren commented on how well the fit was. Would be a pleasure to send you some Pics you'll just have to wait a bit. Kind kind kind


Mr and Mrs Blyth (Nick &Lorraine)

It was easy to follow the route through your excellent site.
I am both vertically and horizontally challenged but the Dinner Jacket Shirt & Tie were a spot on fit A nice touch supplying cuff links as well.

I carefully hung things back on their hangers including the shirt I had worn the night before and at 9.30 the next morning a polite helpful courier collected as per your arrangements .Bravo

I would definitely use you again.

A photo from my wedding at Wotton House back in October. Nice to see my husband Adam looking smart for a change! Dapper had a great selection on suits and provided a very professional service. We would recommend them to anyone looking for mens wedding attire.



As promised a great photo of Jack and Luke Jacobs,modelling in James Bond style,
their Dapper outfits for their uncles wedding on 27th October.
A wonderful day for all,thanks for your services.

Darryl and Linda Jacobs



Thanks for the service:  Placing my order was simple and straightforward, emails were clear, and I did not need more contact than that (I was in Kuwait, so this was good!).

Delivery and collection worked as expected, very good. Fit and quality were excellent and as needed.

Many thanks

Nigel Corbin


 Hi Ian,

First opportunity I have had to thank you and Jack for looking after us. You did us proud for our Wedding on 19th August. Thank you once again.

Steve and Clare Martin

Hi Ian

Just back from HM, have got some really good pics so will send you some of suits when I get back from Xmas up north




Hi Ian

I just wanted to say thanks for the suits – everybody commented on how smart we all looked, especially little Sebastian!


As seen on Real Weddings

The groom, and his party of 11 all hired their suits from Dapper in Dorking after having been recommended by a friend who got married a year before. Dapper had a special offer that stated if you order 6 months in advance then you receive 50% off the price! So claire and Mark were really pleased with their decision.  The suits were a light weight Grey Herring bone style suit. Mark wore the grey suit with an ivory waistcoat and matching ivory cravat. Claire then bough him red and silver cufflinks and a tie pin to match the colour theme as a gift. The other two best men, six ushers, page boy and Bride and Grooms Fathers wore the same suit with the same ivory waistcoat but with red cravats and matching handkerchiefs.

Mark commented that the suit he hired from Dapper was the best suit that he has ever worn!



Many thanks for the good service - yet again.

Best regards,

Peter Wilson

 Just a quick email with some photos attached as I said I would send.
The suits were amazing, no problems and a perfect fit for everyone.

Superb service and will always be recomended to anyone who asks!!
Thank you all so much
Kind Regards

Thank you so much for arranging the quick delivery today.

As always, thank you so much for your brilliant help!

Kind regards


Hi Steve

Nice to meet you yesterday ....... For your information, the reason I returned to Dapper was the service and help that David offered when I first visited, he is an asset to the business.


Thank you for sorting us out with some fabulous suits for our wedding...and for keeping us entertained every time we came in....the wedding went fantastically well...Thanks again, hope to pop by soon,

Regards, Rick.


Thanks for all your help. The wedding was fantastic, and so were the suits from Dapper, as you can see in the photo.

All the best,




Take Care and thanks for all your help, the suits looked fantastic, I would recommend you to anyone,

Louise and Lee Came

It was all very slick and very organised. Couldn't ask for more.

Will definitely use you again

Best Wishes
Emma Reynolds

I welcome the chance to give you feedback,

1 placing the order, the website was easy to manage and the instructions clear

2 very helpful and the contact with Ian. The only member of staff I spoke with, was professional and helpful

3 delivery and collection, both on the day and within the timescale provided

4 good. Some hire suits are shiny, this one was not and the fit was good.

Overall I commend the service and would use again




I recieved the suit today and the fit is absolutely fantastic thank you very much. I was a little apprehensive ordering online because of my long "orangutan" arms, but jacket and trousers fit very well.

Myron Smith


Helen and I are now back from honeymoon and wrapping up things from our wedding.  I wanted to say thank you to yourself, Rochelle and your other staff who served us.  The service and range of clothing available was excellent (particularly the range of waistcoats) and it all combined so that the men and little Mackenzie looked very smart on the day.

Thanks, Graham.

 Would just like to say a huge thank you for the suits. They looked really stunning and helped make our wedding day so special.

A big thank you also for sending a taxi out to us on the day of the wedding with a new shirt for the best man that we couldn't find!!!!

I have attached a picture of us all.

Thank you very much for your excellent support. The day went very well and I heralded your name to several people. Well done you should be proud of your service and customer care.

Everything was perfect, and we all thoroughly enjoyed wearing the suits and the wedding went completely smoothly - thanks for the excellent Dapper service.

Dear Sirs,

Thanks very much for the service that you provide. Here are my comments as requested:

Placing my order using your website was very easy & straightforward. Order processing & staff contact was good. My requirements were handled efficiently & when I needed to change an item, my call was handled well & the replacement was delivered as stated. As mentioned above, delivery arrangements were excellent. Having the items delivered to my place of work made things very easy for me. Also collection was carried-out on the day stated. Clothing quality was excellent & everything fitted.

Thanks very much. I'm sure that I will use you again in the future & would gladly recommend you.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Robinson

Excellent service.

Saved me loads of time in trailing backwards and forwards to shops. Good quality garments for the price, but slightly disappointed that shirt did not have double cuff for cuff links. Still great service and will use again ... better than your perhaps higherprofile competitors.

Kind regards
Andy Sarson

Our reply to the above comment:

Unfortunately, experience has shown that double cuff shirts are not entirely practical for hiring purposes. Even after only one use there is a line of grime grained into the area where the cuff has been folded over. This can never be totally removed, regardless of the laundering technique. Although the shirt may have been fully laundered and is, in fact, clean, it doesn't look it. We therefore have taken the view that single cuff shirts are less likely to create an aspect of dissatisfaction for our clients. For clients who prefer the double cuff, we have retail models available from £29.95.

Dear Sir

Thanks for the email. This was the first time I have used your service. Overall, I found the service very good. As requested, here are my comments under your suggested headings:

Placing your order
• Fine, very easy
Order Processing and contact with our staff
• Virtually everything on line
• Good speedy processing, with helpful dress guide document
• Fine, worked well with delivery to my office, even though I was not in on the day you delivered
• Very good
Quality of clothing supplied and fit etc
• Very good - fitted very well

Should I require dress hire in the future, I would definitely use your services again.

John Woodcock

 Dear Sir

In response to your e-mail, I would like to congratulate you on the service that you provided. Placing my order could not have been easier and your staff saved me money by advising on different delivery options - most unusual these days to do business with HONEST people! Delivery took place when and where you said it would and the items arrived were in excellent condition and just as required. Collection also took place when and where you said it would. The clothing supplied was superb. In conclusion I will certainly use your services should the need arise in the future and have already recommended you to a friend who is looking to hire some morning wear.

Well done on an excellent all round service!

Mike Parkinson

The DJ was smart and a perfect fit.............

I am very satisfied with all aspects of your service, I would not hesitate to use it again and I have already recommended it to others.


David Callam


Everything from finding your website, through placing the order and changing the delivery day was simplicity itself and hassle free. Delivery happened better even than promised - the suit was a great fit and very comfortable - next time I might hire a "Designer" one and buy it!! The collection happened in due course, and in my view the whole package is great - I wish we had more "black tie" functions to go to.

Very many thanks,

Graham Macharg

All I can say is your staff have provided a top rate service from the ordering to the collection. The clothing was superb quality and fit.

I will definitely recommend your company website to friends and I will certainly use you again.


Mr P.A. White

Dear Blacktie, Thank-you for your follow-up email.
My comments are below.

  • Placing your order : VERY straightforward using your easy to use website. I was a little confused about how to agree to your terms and conditions, in order to pay electronically but, in the event, one of your staff contacted me promptly, by phone, for my payment details.

  • Order Processing and contact with our staff : Your staff were very helpful and courteous.

  • Delivery : The items were delivered to my desk, you cannot get better than that! The delivery/collection service that you offer was a BIG reason that I chose you. A friend of mine had to collect his DJ in the pouring rain, by public transport and only paid a few pounds less than I did.

  • Collection : Just as easy as collection. I left the suit and shirt, in the delivery box provided, at my work reception and it was collected the same morning by the courier service.

  • Quality of clothing supplied and fit etc : The quality of both the suit and shirt was good and they were both spotlessly clean.

  • Other Comments : Overall, I was delighted by your service. In fact I have recommended your site to friends and put it forward for inclusion into BP's "Virtual Village". I found the website easy to use, intuitive and informative, especially the "etiquette" section. The garments arrived with time to spare and were VERY clean and the delivery/collection service was efficient and reliable.

Best regards
