How do I tie a (self tie) cravat?

Just like a very simple tie. See diagram below.

Do I need to make an appointment?

When visiting us on a Saturday we would prefer and recommend an appointment due to demand being high, this means we can expect your visit and dedicate time to your order. Week days are a quieter time to simply drop by – no appointment necessary.

How long in advance should I book and when do we all have to come to be fitted?

Initially, we recommend just couples themselves visit our showrooms at the early stages (maybe bring the best man too!). They try on their ideas regarding suit hire, colours etc and discuss what they would like everyone to wear, closer to the time we would then see the rest of the party to be fitted. For boys it is recommended that they are fitted 2-3 weeks before the wedding due to growth.

Dinner suit and single orders may be organised a lot sooner to the function date. It is strongly advised to be fitted (at least a week) before the function date so that the outfit can be delivered to the relevant showroom, suits ‘to go’ are possible but please enquire regarding size availability at short notice (a form of identification is required also).

What is the initial payment?

A deposit of £10 per outfit is required at the time of booking, the remaining balance can then be paid upon collection or before if you prefer.

Payments can be made by cash or card. (We accept all debit cards and most major credit cards except American express.)

Do I have to leave a security deposit?

We reserve the right to ask for a suitable form of identification when hiring any items from Peter Posh.

How much does a suit cost?

All items are individually priced, please refer to our printed showroom price list (or call to enquire) for the costing of each suit along with extra items such as shirts, waistcoats, shoes, self-tie cravats, ties etc.

When can I collect the suits?

We aim to have outfits ready to collect from 2pm, 2 days prior to the function date based on a Friday or Saturday function. Sunday functions will be available from the Thursday for collection. Collection dates can be arranged for alternative days, please ask a staff member for further details.

When do I return the suits?

The suits are required back on the next working day preferably before 10am.

Can I book my outfit in one showroom and collect from another?

Yes, please instruct the showroom where the suit is booked, our staff member will then organise the delivery to the showroom of you choice. This can only be arranged within our four showrooms in Telford, Shrewsbury, Tettenhall and Birmingham.

Can members of my wedding party be measured at another showroom?

Yes, please provide the measuring showroom (Telford, Shrewsbury, Tettenhall or Birmingham) with the party name, date of the wedding and the showroom the order was originally placed at, so that the order can be located.

One/some of the gents in the wedding party are not local to any of the showrooms, what can I do?

Please contact one of our showrooms to discuss in detail.

Customers own measurements can be provided by yourselves, please speak to the showroom where the order was originally placed to discuss what specific sizes we require for your order. Please note Peter Posh cannot be held responsible for ill fitting garments provided in this way.

We also supply Independent retail shops all over the UK, if you provide us with a postcode we will be more than happy to provide a local stockist nearby for you to contact, this individuals outfit, delivery, return and outfit payments would all be done through this stockist and would be completely separate from any orders placed with any of the four Peter Posh showrooms.

Can I return my outfit(s) to another showroom?

If you have hired an outfit from any of our four showrooms in Telford, Shrewsbury, Tettenhall or Birmingham then you can also return it to any of them as well.

I need my suit for a longer period of time/ am flying abroad, is this possible?

Certainly, extended hire can be arranged, please speak to a staff member about your requirements, duration and they will be happy to work out costing.
