About Us: DAPPER, Specialists in All Types of Suit Hire

DAPPER Formalwear for Men was established as a specialist in men's suit hire in 1991 and since then has successfully dressed literally thousands of Grooms and their attendants. But what makes DAPPER stand out from the crowd?

At DAPPER, the customer is all important and nothing is too much trouble for us. Whether you’re looking for suit hire for twenty, or just one, you’ll receive the same level of superb personal service from our staff.

And why do we care more than others? It’s because DAPPER is independently owned and owner-managed. Unlike our larger national competitors, our business is our livelihood. If we don’t do a great job for you, you won’t recommend us to your friends. If you don’t recommend us to your friends, our business will die. It’s as simple as that!

Interestingly, the vast majority of DAPPER’s suit hire wedding business comes from people who have been connected to a wedding we’ve previously dressed. They may have been a member of a wedding group or they may be a friend of a previous client. Either way, we regularly see the same faces time and again; the groom who is now a best man or an usher at a friend’s wedding; the father who has had two or more sons clothed by DAPPER. And why do they come back to us again and again? It’s because we bend over backwards to make sure that everything relating to your menswear is exactly as you want it to be. We’re only happy when our customers are happy. WE CARE! 


It never ceases to amaze us how so many of our competitors will expect you to choose your men’s wedding outfits from a catalogue, without being able to see or try on the clothing in advance.

And how could you possibly expect a wedding dress shop, for example, with no expertise in menswear and no stock for you to try on, to get it right? The same might apply to the national multiples; even they may not bother to keep a full selection of styles and sizes in store; it’s all in a central warehouse somewhere or other. You could be forgiven for thinking that they don’t really care.... Well it’s not like that at DAPPER!

Each of our branches owns its own stock and holds a vast selection of styles, sizes and colours in stock and on the premises. It’s all there for you to see, touch, feel, and try. Nothing is left to chance and nothing is left to your imagination. And should you have very special or non-standard requirements we’ll order it in specially for you.... if it’s humanly possible.


Behind the scenes in our main branches you will find a fully equipped alteration workshop where we fine tune your clothing to your own individual fit. Ask for a look! You’ll see how we can solve those all-important last minute changes, while you wait if necessary.

This is also where we individually quality check and double check each outfit before we sign it off as ready to go. We alter, we clean, we steam and we press. Our motto is “if it’s not good enough for US to wear, then it’s not good enough for YOU to wear”.
