Suit Hire for Men at Coes
with free suit hire for the Groom*

At Coes of Ipswich in Suffolk, we offer an extensive range of men’s and boy’s formal hire wear.  Our selection of wedding and dinner suits is superb and also includes two and three piece suits that are ideal for proms, interviews, funerals and other occasions that require a smart outfit.

Stylish dinner suits, exclusive wedding attire, a wide choice of fancy waistcoats and accessories, plus high standards of service and quality, ensure Coes is the destination shop when it comes to gentleman's formalwear. As one of the longest established menswear hire businesses in East Anglia, we have built up a reputation for delivering value for money, whilst maintaining high levels of investment in new styles, designs and stock replenishment.

Our hire service caters for all sorts of requirements and themes, which is important as fashion trends and online inspiration has made the demand for niche styles more popular.  Vintage looks and celebrity inspired outfits are increasingly requested and where possible we try and accommodate these wishes through our hirewear service.  Due to considerations such as fit, it is not always possible to cater for certain looks with hirewear garments; in these cases we can offer selling alternatives as we have a substantial range of suits, jackets and trousers that can be mix and match to create distinctive and individual looks.  In some cases it may be appropriate to combine selling and buying options; the main aim is that we will do all we can to deliver what the customer wants.

Our flagship 36,000 sq. ft. store at Norwich Road, Ipswich has a floor devoted to wedding and evening suits. We also have branches in Maldon and Felixstowe plus departments in Golding of Newmarket and Goddards of King’s Lynn.  For those living further afield we also have an online order form, so you can supply your details ahead of visiting one of our local shops.  Because we stock our suits and other items, rather than just being an agent, our customers have a full fitting included in the price of the hire.  This may sound like a small detail, but it is great to be able to see what you look like in the outfit of your choice ahead of that all-important occasion. Established in 1928, Coes has been supplying formal hirewear for almost 50 years and have dressed several generations in some families

Coes' fully trained staff have over 30 suit options to offer customers and a selection of fancy waistcoats and accessories that cannot fail to impress. We even stock Highland Wear to hire, or buy, plus many exclusive designs and if that is not enough there is a ‘Special Making Service’.  Top hat and tails remains very popular, with navy and silver grey being the most popular suits at present.  There is also a herringbone option in darker grey and both classic and lightweight black morning suits for traditionalists and typical Ascot wear.  Lounge suits, also known as wedding suits have become increasingly popular, with Navy and Royal becoming the number one trend.  However silver grey isn’t far behind in popularity and black is always one of the favourites.

For children there are usually coordinating suits available in most styles, or a pageboy outfit that comprises of a waistcoat and trousers.  In all cases these can be co-ordinated with the adult’s outfits to achieve a uniform look if desired.

Through our many years of experience we have become established as one of the best Suffolk wedding suit hire stores and during that time have worked with many other businesses. We are happy to recommend The Wedding Guide for information on organising the perfect wedding, as well as The Suffolk Wedding Show, a local exhibition company who organise excellent wedding fayres across East Anglia.
