White dinner suit, white DJ, white evening jacket or the American version white tuxedo. Call it what you like its all the same. Except its actually an ivory/cream colour jacket rather than pure white! Its a bit like talking about the Bride wearing a white dress. All of us do it, but actually you'll find that 99.9% of wedding dresses are actually ivory these days.
Dinner suit weddings are becoming more popular at the moment and a dinner suit will always look very elegant and timeless, think James Bond. Opting for a white dinner suit for a wedding can be a striking and stylish choice. White dinner suits have a unique charm that sets them apart from the traditional black dinner suits worn for formal events. There are several reasons why choosing a white dinner suit for a wedding can be a fantastic option. Wearing a white dinner suit amidst a sea of black tuxedos and dinner suits will make you stand out as the Groom. It creates a bold contrast and makes a statement. A white dinner suit is a way to embrace tradition while also infusing a modern twist into your wedding attire choices.

Custom made white tuxedo
Should you wish for your suit to be slightly more tailored and fitted we can offer a custom made suit.
What does it mean to have a custom made suit?
You can create your suit by choosing your cloth, style, design, lining, trimmings and fit for your unique outfit.
How does it work? You will be asked to try on a 'sample' suit and then there are several points which can be altered within the suit pattern at time of the production. From the chest and waist of the jacket to the width and cut of the trouser.
A custom made suit is a more scaled back version of our full made-to-measure suit collection. But be assured a custom made suit can still offer you plenty of choice when designing the perfect suit for your wedding. Choose from a selection of over 120 cloths, select your lining, melton, buttonhole colour and button type.
Custom made wedding suits normally take approximately 12 weeks to come into us. This may vary at certain times of the year. On arrival of your suit we will contact you to arrange to have your first fitting appointment. Should there be any alterations or adjustments needed they can be done for you within 48 hours.
