Finding A Debs Suit or Tux

by | Filed under Debs Tips and Advice.

Finding a tux or suit for your debs ball is usually pretty easy for guys. But as of February 1st 2013 the search for the perfect tuxedo might prove a little more difficult. On that day, Black Tie suit hire will go into liquidation meaning it’s possible that your local store may close if a buyer for the company can’t be found. This is really sad news for everyone involved in Black Tie and for men all around Ireland who use their suit hire services.

Don’t worry too much if you’ve booked your debs suit with them already. Black Tie have said that they will try to honour any commitments that they’ve made and that they will remain open while they look for a new owner. Let’s hope they find their knight in shining armour!

If you are now wondering where else you can find a tuxedo or suit for your 2013 debs/graduation night have a look at our suggestions below:

  • Buy online. Make life easier and browse for everything you need in the tuxedo section of our online debs store (shameless plug!)
  • Rent or buy in store. For those of you who’d prefer to try one on in store has come to the rescue yet again! Here is a list of suit hire and tux shops in Ireland that we’ve painstakingly put together for you.
