Finding The Right Suit For the Occasion

Special ocassions give us the opportunity to dress up and feel good wearing an outfit that has been thought out in advance. But different types of occasions will have different dress codes, meaning that a little planning and knowing your options can help a lot.




Whether your the guest or the groom, weddings are a special day to wear something a little more extravagant that will make the photos more memorable. Traditional grooms will opt for a black or grey waistcoat, jacket and trouser ensemble, customized with a coloured tie to match their groomsmen.

We also offer a "Groom Goes Free" service when you hire 5 or more outfits - read more about it here

As a guest, a classic 2 piece jacket and trouser suit in black, grey or even navy can make a statement without upstaging the groom. Matching accessories with your plus one can also spark conversations on the day.

Job Interview


Your suit choice here can make or break an interview, depending on the type of business. It's known that Navy shows dedication and commitment as well as professionalism. So a regular or slim fit suit is a great choice if you want to take a step up from a smart shirt and tie. If socks will be on show, try to stay away from vibrant colours - the attention should be on you.

Formal Dinner


Dress code for a formal dinner can be very flexible depending on whether you want to impress or just enjoy spending time with family. If business is involved, a black tuxedo is the height of sophistication, with a black jacket and tie being a slightly toned down choice.

If most of the night will be spent stood up socializing, your choice of shoes won't go unnoticed. Leather or suede styles in black or brown are versatile and affordable options.


The options are endless, whether you want to keep it traditional or experiment, Young's can meet all of your needs.
