We aim to give first class customer service and help you find the perfect outfit for your special event, be it a wedding, evening occasion or any special event.
You don't have to make an appointment to have a hire consultation at Alec W G Hall, but if you are able to book ahead it helps us to make sure we can dedicate to you, the time you deserve.
It's great if you have an idea of the styles before you visit us, but if you really aren’t sure, don’t worry. We are here to help and guide you through the best options from classic wedding morning wear, through to contemporary eveningwear. We love to help with Highland wear Kilts too.
We will ensure that the outfit you choose is the correct size and we have samples of most outfits to see. If you are a Groom and planning a Wedding, we suggest you first visit with the Bride and ideally bring any swatches of any colour scheme you have in mind. We do allow for the Groom to bring along Groomsmen and any other male members of the party together for a group fitting, however this will take longer and you will need to set aside time in your day for this fitting. We can accommodate group measuring but this needs to be booked in advance. We would normally advise that your party come individually or in groups of two.
We request a 50% deposit upon submission of the full booking (once all members of the party are measured). The balance is payable upon collection of the suits.
Your outfit will arrive in the shop at least 2-3 days before your event. We will contact you to arrange try on and collection. It is advised that you come in that day if possible so that we have chance to deal with any changes in the rare event they are necessary.
Outfits must be returned to us by 10am two days following from the event. If this will not be possible please let us know in advance.
If you have any questions about Formal Hire please get in touch we would love to help you.
