Married At First Sight

Many of you, especially those on the run up to getting married, will have been watching the current Channel 4 series of Married At First Sight.

A show that puts a couples romantic future purely into the hands of science, matching people with their ideal partner.

The latest series features a Brighton Groom, Jack, marrying his match, Verity.

Jack came to our Brighton store for his wedding suit. If ever there was time to make a good first impression, it was standing at the end of that aisle.

After meeting with Gresham, Jack decided on a 3 piece suit, made from British wool. This limited edition suit was from our seasonal collection. Accessorised with one of our limited edition silk ties.

Gresham and Jack had a fitting on this suit; Tailoring the suit to be the perfect fit; The trousers were shaped and the waistcoat and jacket were taken in. It was decided that the suit should be personalised further, we added some extra styling including a watch chain hole (hoping his Antique dealer & jeweller Dad would be gifting a nice pocket watch) and altered the top collar on his jacket.

Most importantly the suit was tailored well from behind, so he would look good…..if he ran away. Lets hope the gamble pays off.
