Wearing a tweed suit has become very popular in recent years. We have found lots of our customers requesting tweed suits and tweed accessories. I think this may be down to the fact that there are so many new wedding venues that aren't the traditional fairy tale castles and hotels. They have a more relaxed feeling to them. From weddings held on farms, in barn conversions, woodlands to more outside rustic settings. Although the traditional venues will always be popular couples seem to be choosing more of a relaxed theme to their weddings now a days. Therefore they are asking for a smart wedding suit but with a more relaxed feel to it.
Lambs wool tweed suit to hire
A lambs wool tweed is a great alternative to full on English tweed. Its lighter in weight and so is a lot cooler to wear. Within our hire collection we offer a soft light grey, opulent burgundy, airforce blue and a rich deep navy. We have found a lot of our Grooms opt for the lambs wool and the just have lambs wool waistcoats or waistcoats and ties under our lounge suits for their Ushers. This way the Groom stands out and the Ushers but all link with the Groom via their accessories. Alternatively you could do as Mr Clark did. He chose to have a made-to-measure window pane check tweed suit & put his Grooms men in to our airforce blue lambs wool.
Some of our customers in lambs wool tweed suits
Mr Crocker was one of our Grooms who chose to have a made-to-measure navy lambs wool suit. The navy tweed suit originally was our most popular made-to-measure suit, so we thought we would put it in to our hire collection. It has proved to be a really popular choice for our hire suit customers.
Classic English tweed suit
We also offer within the hire collection, the classic English tweed suit. In our hire range we run a brown with a very subtle burnt orange check and a classic British racing green with a gold window pane check. Both suits can be worn with matching waistcoats. Within our hire collection we offer classic 5 button single breasted, double breasted and 3 button low cut single breasted styles.
A touch of tweed
If a full tweed suit is simply to much for you why not opt for just having your waistcoat make the 'tweed' statement? Tweed accessories can change the look of a complete outfit. Having your waistcoat in tweed and your Ushers matching their suits is a great way of standing out from your entourage. Alternatively just change the tie colour as Mr Barker did. Or just get married in matching outfits as our Grooms Adam and Wayne chose to do. Why not mix it up with a check suit and tweed accessories as Mr Toohey did.

Some of our customers have a really good idea on the type of look they want to achieve. Mr Dean is a great example of that. Others have no idea and need more help and guidance.
