Suit Hire for Men at Golding, Newmarket, Suffolk, East Anglia

Formal Suit Hire for Men & Boys at Golding of Newmarket

Established in 1856, Golding is a business with a long heritage of selling quality clothing and providing exceptional customer care, but is also a progressive retailer that keeps in step with modern consumer demands and fashion trends.  We combine all that is good about traditional values and add fresh ways of making our customer experience an occasion to remember for all the right reasons.  Our staff has the knowledge to ensure you are correctly attired for the occasion or special event you are attending, whether it is an investiture, or a white tie event.  Whilst wedding wear and evening wear are the main categories that men are interested in hiring for, being Newmarket based means we get our fair share of top hat and tails for a day at the races and in particular, Ascot.  There are also outfits required for young men attending proms, and for other more sombre occasions, such as funerals.  We pretty much have an outfit for any occasion and even offer Highland Wear. 

For more formal dinner and dances we stock day suits in black, grey and navy, plus white tuxedos, and several variations of black dinner suit that include shawl and step collars in single breasted and doubled breasted styles.  There is also a more contemporary option with a Nehru collar in black and white.  We also hire slim fit DJs for more fashionable tastes.  Of course not everyone can fit shaped suits, so it is important that we cater for all shapes and figurations.  To cover this, many styles are stocked in sizes from children’s 20” chest to men’s 60” chest.  There are also short, regular and tall fittings, plus in some cases we can do minor adjustments to hire garments, to achieve the perfect fit.  Our accessory range is equally impressive, as we hire everything from smart shoes and fancy waistcoats, to dress shirts, bow ties and cummerbunds.  As they say “The Devil is in the Details” and our team of fitters will always do their utmost to ensure customers not only look good, but also feel great in their outfit.

For weddings we offer a fantastic collection of suits in various styles and colours.  Traditional top hat and tails remain a very strong option, but there are increasingly more weddings that are adopting wedding and lounge suit styles.  As well as offering morning suits in navy, black, dark grey and silver, we also hire Albert Frockcoat Suits in black and navy.  There are lightweight options for summer weddings as well.  Staying with formality, we have Edward and Nehru three-quarter length frockcoats, which achieve the feel of the longer morning wear, but are slightly less formal.  In this style we hire black, grey and navy, plus have cream and brown alternatives.  As mentioned, many customers are now looking at wedding and lounge suit styles that are smart and offer the option, in some cases, of slimmer fittings.  Navy, royal and silver are the most popular colours, but we also offer black, which provides a stylish alternative and is also suitable for a wider array of occasion.

Whether you are looking for a wedding outfit, dress suit, or something else, we will do our best to enable you to achieve the look you desire.  Today there are many influences, and customers are aware of trends and celebrity looks almost immediately.  Whilst we and other hire companies try to deliver as many variations of outfit as possible, there are certain considerations that will limit choice, or may lead to other alternatives, such as purchasing.  Our specialists are here to listen to your ideas and requests and will do as much as possible to deliver a solution.  In some cases, that may mean suggesting a mix of hire and purchase items, or they may advise you of practical considerations, such as fitting related issues.  For example, a bride and groom may wish the whole wedding party to have matching outfits.  If that is the case, figuration of all members of the wedding party will need consideration; big and tall, or small and short; these are just a few of the things that will need careful thought and planning.  Our aim is simply to ensure all goes well with planning, and that fitting of the groomsmen and pageboy outfits are pleasurable.

For pageboys, we have many small-sized versions of the adult suits and can fit children from around three years of age, and sometimes younger.  Full details of our pageboy outfits and men’s suits can be found on this website, but better still, call in-store and see what we have to offer in our hirewear department.  We are open Monday through to Saturday, but strongly recommend booking an appointment on Saturdays as we are often busy fitting customers.  As well as visiting us in Newmarket, we also have related hire departments in Coes of Ipswich, Maldon and Felixstowe plus Goddards of King's Lynn,  If you hire from us, and have family attending your function who are not local, we also have an online booking option.

The service we offer is niche and includes a full fitting, plus we offer specialist services such as making up accessories from your own fabric, if you cannot find what you need from our ranges.  Golding pricing is comparable to high street multiple hire companies, and we have a Groom Offer* that gives you even better value. 

Quality, Service, Selection and Value for Money are the cornerstone of our business and a good foundation to plan your wedding or special occasion on.

*When your wedding party hires 4 or more adult suits for that special day, the Groom's Suit Hire is Free.  Offer excludes fancy waistcoats, shirts, shoes, and accessories.  The Prestige Collection and Highland Wear are also excluded.
