We ask for 12 weeks to complete a custom made garment, as we mix our methods with overseas production as well in house bespoke. Bespoke will typically take a bit longer depending on volume of work on the table at the time.

For a custom made suit two months is a good lead time ,this allows for any mishaps that may occur

At Mandurah Formalwear we do not custom make suits, this would be a question for a tailor that offer this service. We make alterations to our hire suits to adjust them to fit - only minimal alterations are performed on hire suits.

Hi there, a made to measure suit will take 4-6 weeks to complete. You'd need to come in store first for measurements and to choose from our wide range of fabrics and then we would keep you updated on next steps. Come in store and ask for Haz. :) We would love to help.

Our custom suits are supplied with a 5 to 7 week turn-around. A first fitting takes place once the suit is ready. If there are minor tweaks that need to be done, our tailor attends to them asap and you can pick up your suit a week later.

Planning is the key to a stress free outfit journey. While we have helped couples with shorter turnaround, I highly recommend that you allow at least 4 months to plan this journey propperly. You should aim to having your outfit ready 4 to 5 weeks before your weddeing

Thankyou for the enquiry

A tailor made suit will take approx 6-8 weeks to produce, and we always want the suit ready for a final fitting 4 weeks before the wedding day

The earlier you book your wedding the more options you have available to you.

We always say to book a wedding consutlation at leasr 6 months before the wedding date
