Suits For Tall People & Custom Dresses
This is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding day.
On halloween last year (2015) me and my wife (jessica @ dupesareagirlsbestfriend.com) got married after being together over 7 years. When people say your wedding day is the best day of your life, you may think oh my god how tacky, I know I used to but I have to say it was incredible and my wife looked stunning.
But as I am over 6ft tall and quite broad shouldered I found it very difficult to find a suit that fit nice without drowning me in fabic and being within our limited budget. We tried everywhere in doncaster as they have a house of frasier discount shop, a M&S along with a few others. When that was a bust we tried Meadowhall which again we tried everywhere but nothing that was under 200, the closest was 400 in debenhams and house of fraiser in their 1 big and tall area of suits. At this point we were very close to hireing from moss bros which would have been 180. The problem with that was that I really wanted to keep the suit after to go to burlesque nights or to restaurants and feel smart as with a bad back I tend to wear formless comfy clothing. As we were about to give up we went past Jacamo I’d never been in before but had always seen good reviews and I have to admit knowing they have clothing for tall and big guys I expected expensive items but was thrilled to see prices at a good and sometimes at a bargin like soft cotton t-shirts for £6 and jeans at 20-30. But they had a single line of the suits that they sell in, so as a punt in the dark I tried one on and it fid beautifully. I was supprised as the jacket, trousers, shirt and waist coat all came to £175 now the jacket is a little big but is comfy, and on the day the weather was hot (16℃) for halloween. But if you want a good suit that is comfy and you areva bigger than average guy or taller than most take a look at jacamo.
Now to my beautiful wife she had her dress done custom as it was our weddimg and she wanted something epic and different and memorable. So she searched online for corset companies and eventually settled on Booby Trapp Corsets in Liverpool where she went for a fitting twice and was sent the dress via courier. I went with her for the second fitting but never saw the dress but havent seen better service from a company like it before and the dress was jaw droppingly epic.
