How The Try On Service Works
Although our stores have a wide range of outfits in-store, it's not always possible for you to try on the complete outfit you've chosen in your exact sizes.
Our Try On Service means as a groom, you can use the Outfit Builder to create styles you like before choosing one outfit to be delivered to your local store to try it on. This will include the trousers, jacket, waistcoat, neckwear and hankie.
When you visit the store, our expert fitters will make sure you're happy with the choice of outfit and check the sizes you've chosen are correct before you place your order. If you're not ready to book your outfits, you are under no obligation to place an order during your try on appointment.
At the moment we can only provide on Try On appointment per groom. If you're unhappy with the outfit you have chosen for your Try On, our expert fitters will be able to show you alternative sizes, styles and colours during your appointment.
The try on service is only for the groom-to-be. It's to help him choose his wedding party outfits before he commits to buying anything. Once he's placed his order, the groomsmen can come in-store for a fitting as normal.
There is no charge for this service. We don't take any payment details from you and you're under no obligation to place an order. Terms and conditions apply.
The Try On outfit will include the jacket, trousers, waistcoat, neckwear and hankie. It's advisable you bring along a white shirt and dress shoes so you can see how the complete outfit will look on the day.

Ordering Your Hirewear Outfit
Orders should be placed directly with your chosen retailer, whether that is in store or over the phone.
You'll need to pay a deposit to the retailer when you book your outfits. This is normally 50% of the total value but it can vary from store to store so check with your chosen retailer for more info. All outfits will need to be paid for when they're collected. You can either pay for all of them or have the wearers pay for the outfits themselves. You should check with your chosen retailer what types of payment they accept.
Ideally, you should place your order and confirm your sizes as early as possible. Most grooms tend to book at least six months before the big day.
We will accept orders up to 4 working days prior to the function but these may incur additional cost and you might not be able to get the exact outfit you want.
You can amend an order in 2 ways:
Login to your account. From here you can update your sizes and delivery store and save them to your order. You can make changes to your order online up until 28 days before the function date. After this point you should contact our Customer Service Team on 0141 781 6746.
If you want to change colours or styles of garments you should contact your retailer directly using the Contact Retailer button. This is in the Host Store info section on the right of your Sort My Order screen.
You can also call the store to make any changes.
If you would like to cancel your order at any time, please contact your retailer directly. If you cancel your order within 48 hours of it being placed, you will receive a full refund of your deposit.
If you cancel your order within one month of the date of collection, you may be required to pay 50% off the order.
Orders that are cancelled within one week of the date of collection you will be required to pay for the full order. Charges can vary from store to store so check when you place your booking.
When you place your order, your retailer should let you know the date it will be ready for collection. Please make sure you have advised the retailer if you are travelling to the wedding ceremony and that your date of collection fits in with these plans. Charges may apply should you require the outfits earlier than the function date.
Your order should be returned to the retailer on the first working day after the wedding. i.e. if the wedding is on a Saturday, the outfits should be returned on the Monday. Check the store's opening hours when you book.
All outfits should be returned to the store where they were ordered.
Managing Your Order
The groom(or party leader) places the order for the entire party in-store. Once the order is confirmed, an email is sent to the groom with a link to activate his Sort My Wedding Outfit account.
The groom can then log in to his account and manage the wearers in his party.
The first thing the groom should do is enter the email addresses for all his wearers. Once he saves the details, an email will be sent to the wearer to let them know they're in the wedding party, what they're wearing and how to get measured.
There are 3 options for the wearer to get measured:
- Go to the same store as the groom (i.e. the Host Store) to get measured.
- Use the Self Measuring Guide (PDF, 178 KB) and enter his own sizes straight into his Sort My Wedding Outfit Account.
- If the wearer wants to visit a store, they should use the ‘Contact Retailer' button to send a message to arrange an appointment. The replies will go to the message section of their Sort My Wedding Outfit account but a notification will be sent to the email address used to register.
The groom (or party leader) can see the status of everyone's order, who has been measured and who hasn't.
The wearers can only see their own outfit details and can send messages to the retailer.
Home Delivery *

Any wearer can request their outfit be delivered to their home or work address. The groom can also request this service for any of the wearers.
