There are many different avenues a bridegroom may take on the subject of his attire for ‘the big day’.
Traditional morning dress, tailored suit be it two or three piece, or tuxedo (more popular I must say among our American counterparts).

At Robert Old we have been dressing Bridegrooms since our foundation in 1909 (We definitely class as the ‘something old’) and whilst the pleats have gradually dropped away and left us with flat fronted trousers little else has changed.

Our aim is to make the process as simple and enjoyable as possible.

In the world of Made to Measure tailoring most tastes can be catered for; however there is the occasional suggestion that requires answering with a raised eyebrow.

Whiffs of a fashion for Tweed suits have crossed our radar of late, but are easily quelled when the happy couple are reminded that their wedding is to take place at the height of summer.

In the course of a fitting we will discuss your needs and preferences, advise on colour, fit and wearability and suggest any finishing touches that may be required to complete the outfit such as shoes, shirts, ties and pocket squares.

We work with several different companies in order to offer a Made to Measure tailoring service to suit everyone; the pinnacle of the trio being Ermenegildo Zegna Su Misura.

If we discover throughout our initial discussions that Made to Measure is the suitable route in which to realise your desired suit the measuring time is generally 30-40mins, but you may well need to set aside several hours to ponder over the exact cloth colour and we have known weeks to be spent in the vain task of matching the colour of the tie and pocket square to the bridesmaids’ dresses!

Once you are measured and happy with your choices the order will be whisked away and work will begin on the production of the suit. In three to four weeks the suit will be with us and we will arrange a second fitting with you to make any final adjustments necessary.
A week later your suit will be ready for ‘I do’!

In addition to this we offer a broad range ‘off the peg’ suits and waistcoats in various cuts that may (if necessary) be adjusted by our in-house Master Tailor for the optimum fit.
Our offering includes suits by Ermenegildo Zegna, Armani Collezioni and styles under our own labels Robert Old Italia and RO1909 which are produced by only the best manufacturers.

Adjustments on ‘off the peg’ suits will generally take five to seven working days and are free of charge on full price garments.

Any further ways in which we can make your wedding experience less fraught will be undertaken; shirts will be pressed and kept in travel covers, shoes will be shined and we offer a dry cleaning service for last minute emergencies.


If you would like to arrange a consultation you are more than welcome to request an appointment, but if you happen to be passing and wish to ask any questions there is always a dedicated member of highly skilled tailoring staff on site to answer them and to guide you through the process.
