What to Expect at Your Appointment Your Step-by-Step Guide

At Suit Vault, we pride ourselves on offering a personalised and luxurious experience for each of our clients. Whether you’re here for suit hire or a made-to-measure garment, your appointment is designed to ensure you receive the highest level of service and expertise. Read below to find out what you can expect during your visit to Suit Vault



Hire - Exploring Our Collection 

For suit hire clients, we will guide you through our extensive collection of two and three-piece suits, blazers, and tuxedos. You’ll have the opportunity to explore a variety of styles, fabrics, and fits to find the perfect ensemble for your event. Our collection also includes a wide range of accessories such as shirts, ties, cufflinks, pocket squares, and lapels, ensuring that every detail of your outfit is coordinated and stylish. 

Hire - Quick and Efficient Fittings 

The length of your appointment will depend on your specific needs. If you're hiring a suit, the initial appointment can take as little as 20 minutes. For wedding parties, we allow 45 minutes to ensure that all groomsmen are properly fitted and coordinated. We recommend bringing your own dress shirt for hygiene purposes, but we also provide fitting shirts if you plan on hiring or purchasing one from us. 

Hire - Fitting and Adjustments 

For suit hire, you will have a fitting session to try on different options and see how they look and feel. Our stylists will provide expert advice on fit and style, making any necessary adjustments to ensure you leave with a suit that looks impeccable. We offer different-length trousers and jackets, so no alterations are generally required. However, if you have a specific request, such as precise trouser lengths or jacket sleeves, a contribution towards the cost of this may be requested.

Once your appointment is complete, we will finalise all the details of your suit hire or made-to-measure order. For suit hire, we will arrange a convenient time for you to pick up your suit. You can collect the hire items one business day prior to your event. After the event, you return all items to your selected dry cleaner—New City Dry Cleaners in Mount Hawthorn or Stannards Dry Cleaners in Subiaco—who will then return them to the store. The cost of dry-cleaning ranges from $20 to $40 per person and is not included in the hire cost.

Special Considerations for Weddings 

If you're hiring suits for your wedding, we recommend selecting the style and completing the fit in-store at least two months before the wedding. We can also accommodate last-minute requests, but sizes may be limited. If your groomsmen are unable to attend the initial fitting, we can assist them remotely to obtain their sizes and ensure a smooth fitting when they arrive in Perth.


We offer a wide selection of accessories for hire and purchase, including ties, bow ties, shirts, and cufflinks.


Warm Welcome and Comfortable Setting 

From the moment you step into our boutique in Subiaco, just minutes from the Perth CBD, you will be greeted by our friendly and professional staff. Our boutique offers a comfortable and stylish setting where you can relax and enjoy your appointment. We want you to feel at ease and confident that you are in expert hands. 

Initial Consultation 

Your appointment begins with an initial consultation where we take the time to understand your needs and preferences. Whether you are looking for a suit for a wedding, black-tie event, corporate function, or any other occasion, our experienced stylists will listen to your requirements and offer personalised recommendations. 

Personalised Styling Advice 

Throughout your appointment, our stylists are available to offer personalised styling advice. Whether you need guidance on choosing the right accessories or tips on how to care for your suit, we are here to help. Our team’s extensive knowledge and experience ensure that you receive the best advice and leave feeling confident and well-dressed.

Made-to-Measure - Fabric and Style Selection 

If you are opting for our made-to-measure service, this part of the appointment is where the fun truly begins. You will have access to the finest European fabrics, and our stylists will help you choose the perfect material that matches your style and the occasion. We will also discuss various style options, from lapel shapes and button choices to pocket styles and lining colours. This ensures that your suit is not only perfectly fitted but also uniquely yours. 

Made-to-Measure - Precise Measurements 

Accurate measurements are crucial for both suit hire and made-to-measure services. Our skilled tailors will take precise measurements to ensure the best possible fit. For made-to-measure clients, this step is particularly detailed, as we want your suit to fit like a second skin. We pay attention to every measurement to guarantee a comfortable and flattering fit. 

Made-to-Measure - Fitting and Adjustments 

For made-to-measure suits, a follow-up fitting will be scheduled once your suit is ready. During this session, we will ensure that every detail is perfect, and any final adjustments will be made to achieve the ideal fit. Our goal is to provide you with a suit that meets your exact specifications and exceeds your expectations. After the initial in-store fitting, it typically takes around 8-12 weeks for your suit to arrive. We will keep you updated on the progress of your suit and schedule your final fitting once it arrives. If final alterations are needed, they are handled by our local team at no additional cost to you.

We do not offer re-try sessions for booked suits with items purchased elsewhere. If you wish to try on your hired suit with new items, this will need to happen during the hire period when the suit is in your possession.
