Hi, My best man lives in the UK and may not be able to make it over here for his fitting. Have any of you hired outfits before just by giving the hire company written measurements as opposed to a physical fitting? I have visions of him on the morning of the wedding with his sleeves dangling and his trousers tripping him up!! I'd be really grateful for any advice you have Thanks a million

I've two "bestmen" on different sides of the country. Where I'm hiring the suits said to get them to go into a suit shop to get measured correctly. Then give the hire shop the measurement. The lady in the shop where I'm getting mine said that they're asked to do that all the time. Usually they know if the measurements don't add up. My wedding is on a Saturday so she did ask for the men to try on the suits on the previous Thursday so any alternations could be done before Friday evening. I know its cutting it fine but its an option for you!
