Each time you change your Order in accordance with these Terms and Conditions thereafter, we will advise you of the total rental charges that apply as a result of your change by updating your online Shopping Bag to show the updated rental charges payable by you.

During the checkout process, you will be asked to provide a valid credit or debit card before completing your order.

Once this 5-day period has elapsed, the full amount per item, as set out above, will be charged to the card on file. We do not wish to make this charge so if there is a reason why you are unable to comply with the requirement, just call us and we’ll work something out.


These Terms and Conditions of Hire govern the relationship between you and us. Only place an order with us if you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. In no event will this hire agreement cover a period in excess of 3 months.



We will hire to you the garments detailed on your order form as long as they are within the size range available. Please note that it is not possible to carry out alterations to garments as you might expect if you had purchased them.

All garments are quality checked and processed after each hire and every effort is made to ensure the quality is to high standard and that garments are free from any defects. However, due to dry-cleaning, there may be a slight shading difference in garments, especially where garments are ordered for a large wedding party.

We reserve the right to substitute to the nearest half size as follows:

Jacket size +2 inch

Jacket length + or – 1 inch

Trouser Length + or – 1 inch

Trouser waist +2 inch

If we are able to deliver such replacement items, additional charges will be applied – payment of which will be your responsibility. Any additional charges will be added to the sums set out on the order form and will be payable.

Any orders cancelled 14 days after the order date will receive a 50% refund unless the collection date is within 14 days. If your order is within 14 days of the despatch date you will not be refunded. If your order has already been collected, you cannot cancel and it will not be refunded.

In certain circumstances we may need to cancel an order before it has been collected by the user.


As the individual who places the order, if you are hiring garments for more than one individual, you will procure the compliance with these Terms and Conditions of the Hire by all other members of your party and you will indemnify us in full for any costs, expenses, losses or damages incurred or suffered by us as a result of any failure by any member of your party to comply with these Terms and Conditions of Hire.
