Men’s Formalwear at Discount Prices

Morning CoatI don’t very often talk about men’s formalwear on Wedding Planning Secrets, generally because most of the people I talk to about wedding planning are brides!

However, I did have an interesting conversation with a groom and his best man at a recent wedding event (they were propping up the bar while the girls went off to watch the fashion show!) so I thought I’d share it with you.

They had evidently reached that ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ age where everyone they knew was getting married. Of a group of five close male friends, three of them were getting married in the same year, and all five would be either the groom, the best man, or an usher at all three weddings.

Because of this situation they’d decided that rather than hiring wedding suits three times over, they would all buy simple black morning suits that could be worn to all three weddings.

They’d ordered them from Clermont Direct, online suppliers of quality men’s formalwear, and while the groom I was talking to had decided to buy a completely new morning coat for his wedding, the rest had bought ex-hire coats and they’d been surprised what good condition they were in. They’d even decided to all buy ex-hire grey waistcoats that would be dressed up with different coloured ties or cravats for each wedding.

I checked out the Clermont Direct website and currently a new morning coat with 100% wool trousers costs around £175, and an ex-hire morning coat costs £90. If you think your fiancé and his groomsmen might need morning suits for other weddings or events, why not consider buying them from a supplier such as Clermont Direct rather than hiring suits each time?
