Sometimes even we are blown away by the brilliance of Bedfordians. Take the new business, the Vintage Suit Hire Company. Set up by local husband & wife duo Tom & Jessica, it offers vintage style suits for wedding hire (or a made to measure service if you want a keeper).
The couple were inspired to set up the business after they struggled to find a ready to wear suit that suited their own style for their wedding in 2011: “We wanted our wedding to be a day that reflected our own tastes for all things vintage, retro and unique,” said Jessica. “We found that the bridal market was huge and varied, but the groom market was pretty limited for fashion options and Tom struggled to find the right suit in a sea of morning suits and dark coloured lounge suits. We knew then that we wanted to make an alternative style of suit readily accessible for the wedding market, and also to create a service which gave grooms the opportunity to show their creativity and style, equal to that which brides receive.”
The company’s emphasis is on luxury, but not exclusivity with hire at £85 and a full made to measure service at £260. For full details of their range and to book a fitting:
