My first post that showed off some of my wedding planning came to you in the form of flowers and this week I’m bringing you a suit related post.
Now we are just under 7 months away from our wedding (argh) and wedding planning is fully underway. We’ve been doing a few bits and pieces of late and will start attending church soon in preparation for the big day. We’ve also started looking at suits and bridesmaid dresses here and there so when Bobby was offered the chance to try out a suit of his choice from Dobell, we couldn’t resist.
Dobell if you haven’t heard of them before are a formal wear store for men and boys. They are extremely affordable and offer a very extensive range of suits to suit everyone. After browsing the store, Bobby chose to try out the Navy Blue Classic Mens suit; mainly so that the suit could be worn for work as well.
It arrived extremely quickly and was well packaged in a suit bag within a sturdy suitcase style cardboard box. The suit was laid out well-meaning we didn’t need to iron it when opened up. We hung it up for a couple of days to allow any creases to drop before testing it out for wear.
Bobby decided to wear it to work to get a decent day’s wear out of it and really put it to the test.
He got lots of compliments from his colleagues who all thought the suit must have been really pricey. They will be surprised to hear that it retails for £99. What we liked is how well the suit fit. The website offers you the chance to pick the suit jacket and trousers in different measurements and then choose Short, Regular or Long options. This is always a plus for us as Bobby is 6ft 3 and broad in the shoulder so slim fit sizing like a lot of companies do, just isn’t an option. It was also comfortable to wear all day and did not restrict his movement at all proving the great quality once again.
Dobell not only offer a great sizing service but do also offer free delivery and returns which is always a bonus when ordering things online. We may well look to order all the groomsmen suits online depending on whether we find anything different but the quality and fit of this suit was extremely good. Bobby is a massive suit fan anyway as he wears them for work so this one is great as its multi-purpose.
They also do traditional morning suits with tails as well as tuxedo’s, white tie and even dinner jackets. If you are looking for a reasonably priced suit then I would definitely visit Dobell and check out their range.
*This suit was sent to Bobby & I in exchange for an open and honest review. All thoughts are our own as always*
