My Wedding - - CONTENTS - By Gayle Dick­son

Wed­ding mag­a­zines, blogs and web­sites tend to fo­cus heav­ily on the bride. The poor groom and best­men are of­ten left to their own de­vices. No longer! Over the next few is­sues, we’ll slowly but surely be grow­ing our fo­cus on the males, bring­ing you in­for­ma­tion on groom­ing, styling, fash­ion, ve­hi­cles .. .and more!

To start you off, we thought we’d in­tro­duce you to the team at Dorset Tai­lor­ing & Suit Hire.

As the name sug­gest, not only can you hire fab­u­lous suits, shirts, ties and waist­coats from them, but you can also have a suit tai­lor made to perfection … at a frac­tion of the cost I’ve seen else­where.

Now, I can hear you ask­ing: “Doesn’t cheap mean nasty and won’t I end up with poor qual­ity?" The an­swer to that is a def­i­nite “No”! Dorsets have been man­u­fac­tur­ing qual­ity suits for over 30 years and, judg­ing by the num­ber of re­peat cus­tomers I’ve seen com­ing and go­ing, they’re ob­vi­ously do­ing some­thing right!

All their suits are made lo­cally in NZ … in fact, in Hamil­ton, where they have a mon­ster show­room. Since they own both the show­room and fac­tory, they’re not pay­ing ex­or­bi­tant rentals and charg­ing more for their suits. They also keep costs down by di­rect-sourc­ing their fab­rics, again pass­ing those sav­ings on to you.

When it comes to the fab­ric, Dorsets will al­ways go for a su­pe­rior qual­ity wool. You can lit­er­ally feel the dif­fer­ence by just run­ning your hands over the suits!

One thing that strikes me each time I ven­ture into their Botany store is the va­ri­ety. Whether you’re af­ter some­thing ex­tremely for­mal like a morn­ing suit, or a lit­tle more ca­sual like a busi­ness style suit; whether you pre­fer pin­stripes to solid char­coal; no mat­ter if you like pale grey as op­posed to black … it’s all there. There are a range of jacket styles, lapel op­tions, colours and lengths. Plus, you can ac­ces­sorise with ties, hand­ker­chiefs and cuff­links on site, sav­ing you nu­mer­ous trips! In fact, you can even grab your dress shoes from Dorsets if you don’t want to splash out on pur­chas­ing a new pair just for one day!

Wed­dings are a Dorset spe­cial­ity, and they take pride in en­sur­ing that each and ev­ery mem­ber of your bri­dal party is cor­rectly fit­ted. It doesn’t mat­ter that one guy is a mon­ster size rugby player with a size 30 neck, and the other is Joe Aver­age … they’ll both look im­pec­ca­bly tai­lored by the time Dorsets have fin­ished with them. And don’t worry about try­ing to match waist­coats and ties to the brides­maid dresses or an­other as­pect of the wed­ding – leave that to the pro­fes­sion­als.

Let’s be hon­est – where else can you hire a suit, waist­coat, shirt and tie for un­der $200 and be guar­an­teed that it will fit like a glove?
