Can I hire formalwear from The Groom’s Room at Abigail’s Collection for other occasions?

Yes - as well as wedding outfits we provide tuxedos and dinner jackets for corporate celebrations, balls and graduations. Whatever the event, we will do our best to assist.

How many waistcoat and cravat colour options are there?

Our fabulous range includes 65 different waistcoat designs, colours and fabrics to choose from and with a huge variation of ruches, ties and cravats to select from we are certain we have something to suit every taste and every wedding theme.

How much is it to hire?

It depends on what you would like to hire. A two piece suit is available to hire per Gent from £45. Or for more of a traditional look budget approximately £110 per outfit which includes a more formal jacket (lounge, tails or Price Edward), trousers, waistcoat, shirt and cravat and handkerchief.

Not everyone is based locally or in the UK. How can we get them measured for their hire suit?

After obtaining the wearers e-mail address, we’ll forward a measurement guide from which we can receive measurements and order their suit. After it’s delivered (and after the wearer has tried it on) if there are any size changes or replacement items required providing we have 48 hours left we can arrange an exchange of garments. We strive to ensure that everyone in the party looks fantastic and would always suggest that if someone is able to come into store to be measured that they do so.

When do the men need to get measured and outfits ordered?

This is usually the last group of wedding day outfits to be decided and they are often selected to match the wedding day theme and usually chosen to compliment the bridesmaid dresses. In the case of hire; these outfits can be ordered just a few months before the wedding day and the men in the wedding party can be measured up to a few weeks before the big day itself. Many brides and Grooms select their menswear outfits after the bridesmaids dresses have been ordered. Due to us providing a very popular menswear service in Colchester and for our Essex Grooms we would always suggest that if you do intend on hiring from us that you book in as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

When do we collect the suits and when do they have to be returned?

Hire suits are collected in the two weeks preceding the wedding and returned to The Groom’s Room at Abigail’s Collection on the first open day after the wedding day (we are closed on Sundays and Mondays).
