Hire Morning Suit
Traditionally Worn at Weddings, Investitures, Garden Parties and Certain Race Meetings
Following the etiquette of formal wear, morning dress being its civilian day wear, there are several equivalents.
Morning dress, also known as formal day dress, is the formal Western dress code for day attire,[1] consisting chiefly of, for men, a morning coat, waistcoat, and formal trousers, and an appropriate gown for women. Men may also wear a popular variant where all parts (morning coat, waistcoat and trousers) are the same colour and material, often grey and usually called "morning suit" or "morning grey" to distinguish it; considered properly appropriate only to festive functions[3] such as summer weddings and horse races, which consequently makes it slightly less formal. The correct hat would be a formal top hat, or if on less spacious audience settings optionally a collapsible equivalent opera hat.
Morning Suit
Morning dress is traditionally worn at weddings, investitures, garden parties and certain race meetings such as Royal Ascot and the Derby. It is also worn at very formal funerals; accompanied by a single-breasted black waistcoat and top hat. Our morning coats are single-breasted, meeting at the front with one button in the middle then curving away into a pair of tails behind. The coat is made from black herringbone wool and is traditionally worn with grey striped trousers.

A morning coat, and trousers of the same cloth can be worn, making the ensemble a 'morning suit' and is considered less formal. We have mid-grey morning suits available and we also have navy which is a modern twist on the classic.

We have both single and double-breasted waistcoats; the single-breasted feature a notched lapel whilst our double-breasted models have a peak lapel.

Traditionally a plain white shirt should be worn with a classic collar and a double cuff. For weddings, it is customary for either a neck tie or cravat to be worn but for occasions such as Royal Ascot and garden parties at Buckingham Palace, cravats are not permitted.
