We may be called Bespoke BRIDE but that doesn’t mean we aren’t concerned about the male counterpart involved in weddings. We love weddings as a whole, wholeheartedly!
If it’s unlikely that your Groom is going to read this then it is definitely up to you to point him in the right direction when it comes to custom suits for himself and his groomsmen. We talked this week with InStitchu in Canberra to get the low down on their tailored suits and associated services. It’s a great option for those wanting something a little different. And there isn’t a Groom out there that doesn’t deserve a little bit of pampering!
Can you please share with us a little bit about the InStitchu brand?
At InStitchu we firmly believe in individuality which is why we follow a simple phrase: clothes are designed by you, made by us and sent to you. Simple! Founded in 2013, InStitchu specialises in custom, tailored wedding suits from $399 and shirts from $89 with hundreds of merino wool, linen and cotton fabric patterns. InStitchu has showrooms across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Auckland and New York City where Grooms and their Groomsmen can enjoy a refreshment on us and check out our fabrics and styles with their dedicated Wedding Stylist.
Who are your suits aimed at? Is it just Grooms or the entire bridal party?
On your wedding day, it is not only important that you as the Groom look your absolute best but also your entourage! Our suits are perfect for Grooms and their Groomsmen as well as Father’s of the Bride and Father’s of the Groom! Join us at one of our Showrooms where you and your Groomsmen can enjoy a refreshment on us and check out our fabrics and styles with a dedicated Wedding Stylists. And, if you have a Groomsman who can’t make it to a showroom, they can simply enter their measurements online with the assurance of a perfect fit guarantee…it’s fool proof…
What inspires your tailors when it comes to creating suits for weddings?
We love creativity! Whether it’s a Gatsby tuxedo, a classic navy number or a linen beach look you are after, we have hundreds of fabrics to choose from for any wedding style…
Do you have a favourite suit style / groom that you’ve dressed and why?
Each wedding party is completely unique, just like their suits and we love to see all the different combinations that our wedding parties come up with depending on their wedding theme!
Are all of your suits custom made orders or do you have items that Grooms (or the bridal party) can purchase off the rack?
All of our garments are 100% custom, tailor made to your measurements. When our custom, tailored suits start at $399, why on earth would you buy off the rack or even consider hiring a suit when you could get everything made to measure at the same price point? InStitchu work with the bride and groom to design the perfect look to compliment your wedding theme and cater to any specific fabric request or design needs. Let InStitchu take the stress out of your special day as they design your dream suits that are made to measure! Rest assured that your suits and shirts will be one of a kind, there is nothing better to wear than a tailored suit, custom to your measurements.
How long does the process take for you to make a custom order / what timelines should Grooms be considering when it comes to booking in for their initial consultation?
We require a 10 week turn around for order, make and final fittings.
What price range would a Groom be looking at for a custom suit package?
InStitchu make custom, tailored wedding suits from $399 and shirts from $89. It begs the question, when your wedding day is such an important day and you want to be looking your best, why on earth would you buy off the rack or even consider hiring a suit when you could get everything made to measure at the same price point? There is absolutely no need to look anywhere else for your wedding suits…
What advice do you have for Grooms when they are coming to meet with you?
Know you are in the best hands with our dedicated, experienced Wedding Stylists. If there is a particular suit or style that you have in mind, bring it along for inspiration – be creative and show your individualism through your suit. Relax and let us take care of the rest.
Do you also have accessories that Grooms can purchase from you? Or connections that our Grooms should know about?
Of course! We’ve got you covered! We stock Barnaby socks, Rahul & Anthony cufflinks, InStitchu ties, Krew & Co and Hank in Chief pocket squares and bow ties, Antoine and Stanley shoes, Triwa watches and more…These accessories are great to wear on the day and make great Groomsmen gift ideas.
For 2017/2018 what sort of trends do you think there will be for Groomswear?
We predict tuxedos will be popular, think traditional tuxedos with a midnight blue satin lapel for the Groom to differentiate himself from his Groomsmen. We also predict that linen suits and shirts will be popular for summer weddings. Linen is a lightweight, breathable fabric that is perfect for the summer months.
