How long does it take to have the boys suits custom made?

How long before the wedding should the boys come in to get their suits? We want tailor-made at least for the groom, but maybe the groomsman too.

Turnaround times for our custom made suits are 5-6 weeks but we usually recommend grooms to organise suits 2 - 3 months in advance. This leaves enough time to feel organised but not too much time as bodies change.

Congratulations! We have a few options availble for you.

Our  made in Europe offer is designed for those that want the best in European design and qaulity. Suits tailored in Europe require a minimum of 3 months

and the process requires multiple fittings in our store with further tailoring and adjustments done by us on site.

We also offer cheaper options for your groomsmen if you are constrained by budget. Still exceptional quality and beautifully tailored, however less options and made in Asia to reduce the costs. Time frame for this service is 6-8 weeks.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.

Good morning,

Unfortunatley we do not custom make suits, however we offer a range of boys suits to purchase, we then have a tailor who can assist with making necessary alterations to ensure an amazing fit. It would be best to allow 4-5 weeks to complete an outfit - from fitting, to altering.

Kind regards,

Hi! Good morning.

our usual turn around is 4-5 weeks and we always recommend allowing minimum 12 weeks before the wedding. One can also start the process earlier by looking and shortlisting fabric and styling. Measurements can happen 12-14 weeks before the wedding.

Congratulations on your wedding! Our process takes around 6 - 9 weeks, for weddings we advice the groom to come in 2 or 3 weeks beforehand since we book out really quickly. So around 3 months in advance before the wedding would be an ideal time.

Kind regards,

The Oscar Hunt Team.

Hi There, 6 to 8 weeks is the standard turnaround time for custom made suits so we normally recommend to come in 3 months before.
