Mens Suits and Accessories
Routleys is a Tasmanian menswear store that, since it’s opening nearly 100 years ago, has upheld the ability to ensure that if you’re a gentleman in the market for something to wear, you’ll leave their stores looking no less than immaculate. If there’s ever a time to look your best, being a groom, a best man, a groomsman, a father of the bride or a wedding guest is it. With two centrally located stores in Hobart and Launceston, they offer a detailed yet straightforward service to provide you with a wedding suit or attire that be will perfect for you and your style.
As one would expect in a store that provides an extensive selection of quality menswear, Routleys stock and custom order a range of mens suits, shirts, jackets and pants for wedding outfits. What you will find here though is that there’s a passion to assist you to look impeccable and appropriate for the style and occasion of wedding you’re attending; meaning you look great now, and just as great in photos in 20 years time. This highly customised service is matched with great variety of clothing available to see in store and with people that know their clothing. Suits can be put together starting at a very reasonable $299.
Make an appointment with Routleys online or over the phone to get your outfit underway. This ensures one-on-one service in-store at a suitable time for you, and groomsmen should you be looking as a bridal party. You’re of course welcome to bring the bride and ladies as well for additional assistance. You can look forward to easing into mens suit selection in the very comfortable store surrounds whilst enjoying a complimentary Tasmanian whisky or craft beverage while you’re there.
Routleys’ timeline for your wedding suits is organised and the team’s expertise will guide you through the process based on the requirements for your attire. Like your own preferences, seasonal styles and ranges change over time so ordering more that three to four months out isn’t usually necessary or recommended. On visiting the Routleys store you’ll be met with a team that are honest and switched on, and with an eye for trends balanced with what will work for you. They’ll talk through your ideas and are happy to direct you to an outfit that’s perfectly suited for your wedding and bridal party.
Once ordered, you’ll be asked to come back in with the boys to be fitted properly into the suits. Initial sizing is best done two to three months out from the wedding date, with final tailoring and alterations to be underway around a month before. The process is designed to track any change in body shape and accommodate size changes over the months; working towards wearing a wedding suit that will not only fit but be comfortable to your liking. All tailoring is available in house with highly experienced fabric mechanics – seamstresses – meaning that your suit doesn’t have to leave Routleys until it’s ready to be collected prior to the big day.
A week out from your wedding, dropping in for one last fitting will ensure that the suit is exactly as it needs to be. Any final alterations are made as necessary and you’re on your way, with every confidence in how you will look.
Whilst you’re there, you’re free to peruse a large offering of accessories; shoes, hats, gloves, belts, socks, cufflinks and of course an ultimate range of ties for every possible style and occasion. There’s also the additional and specialty available; gloves, tails, wallets, and stylish leather goods in-store to complete your outfit.
