[color=darkblue]Chocolate Brown Suits - Where can I get one?

Hi Girls,

We've decided on chocolate brown for the suits, and we have had a look in Slaters, Debenhams and Moss Bross so far, but nothing is really standing out. My H2B ideally wants a 3 piece suit with the waistcoat also in choc brown, and a coffee coloured cravat. We thought the rest of the party could have a cream waistcoat to make him stand out, but we are stuggling to find anything suitable.

Do you have any ideas / suggestions? We've considered buying a suit but again, we couldn't find a 3 piece chocolate brown suit with matching waistcoat.

Thanks for your help! x

    We're having brown top and tails as well. We've gone to Well Groomed Formal Men's Hire in Poole. There is a place in Guildford as well but I'd have to root out the name.

    Try Youngs, I know they do one but it's more expensive than their standard suit hire. The tricky bit will be the waistcoat for your hubby-to-be but you could always get it made.

  • Youngs look good, they have a double breasted waistcoat which looks v smart and there is one fairly local to me (Birmingham) so I'll def look there - thanks!

    I had brown suits for my wedding, they were from Pronuptia in Newcastle. Really smart and a bit different from the usual black

    We are near Birmingham too and got chocolate brown suits and waistcoats from Duncan James in Walsall. Think they have a website. I have heard really good reviews about them too. Worth a try?

    Our chocolate brown suits are hired from Greenwoods too! If you go onto their web page and request a brochure you get a discount voucher too!

    Good Luck.

    H2B has hired his from Formal Affair in Sutton Coldfield, he got the shoes, trousers, shirt, waistcoat, jacket , cufflinks, cravat and pocket watch for 141 pounds to hire, i think thats quite reasonable! he's having an ivory waistcoat with dark brown pattern and the other men are having the same with a sort of shinier ivory pattern (if you get me) lol xx

    We're having the bournville in moss bros with sienna waistcoats and h2b in brown cravat. we preferred it to the Youngs brown one as had the subtle stripe in it.

    Pronuptia do a beautiful chocolate brown suit. The woman there also told my H2B that if you couldn't find a waist-coat / cravat in a colour you like, if you buy the material in the colour you want, they will have them made up for you. you could ask if your local store does this? Apaprently they are all franchised stores so it may be different where you are, but worth asking.
