Evening Suit Hire


Evening suits are required for the finest occasions and as such are some of the finest suits available. Making an investment in an evening suit can mean parting with hundreds of pounds; but where is the sense in that, especially when the suit is likely to be worn no more than a few times?

Events that require this kind of suit are commonly:
  • Proms
  • Banquets
  • Cruise ships
  • Receptions and balls
  • Formal functions
It is fair to say that these kinds of events do not occur in people’s lives daily, making evening suit hire the perfect solution. Hiring allows you to attend an event in a pristine suit that is modern and in keeping with the latest trend; it also saves you money on a suit that will be hopelessly out of fashion by the time it is next needed.

Types of evening wear

Evening suit hire is pretty versatile in terms of choice and whether it is a white or black-tie event, there is likely to be an outfit to match anyone’s personal fashion tastes. Tuxedos and formal wear are the most common with both coming in a range of styles.

The tuxedo is available in both black and white finishes and consists of an evening tailcoat with satin faced lapels, matching trousers, wing collar shirt, bow tie and cummerbund. The suit must always be black, but that does not mean choice is limited. The tuxedo comes in a range of fabrics with herringbone and velvet, particularly popular. The accessories of the tuxedo are available in black and white depending on the event and many hire shops will offer the outfits as a package, fully inclusive of everything needed.

Formal wear is suited to any kind of evening engagement, and single and double-breasted jackets are suited to men of any size. Both types of formal jacket will come with a choice of lapels (notched, shawl, peaked) and in the case of the single-breasted jacket, a choice of buttons.

Hiring an evening suit

Looking for evening suit hire will present you the option to hire from a shop or hire online. Although this purchase is a hire one, shopping around for the best deal is important. Choosing to hire from a shop will give you the benefit of being able to try on outfits on. This will mean seeing how the different fabrics and cuts look first hand; you will also be able to enlist the help of a shop assistant to help you make the best choice. Some people will have specific size requirements, which can make finding a suit that fits correctly difficult, hiring from a shop will enable you to have a made to measure to suit provided.

Evening suit hire online is beneficial for anyone who needs a suit at short notice and cannot get to a hire shop. Internet suppliers have a wide variety of suits and sizes that can be delivered to your chosen address on same or next-day delivery and then collected when the outfit is finished with.
