What size is best for me?

In regards to sizing, unfortunately we can't give a broad answer for everything across all of our ranges. It varies depending on the item and the manufacturer. Some items we recommend going a size up from your usual, others a size down. If you're unsure, please do get in touch with us about the item you're interested in along with your relevant measurements. (E.g.- If you're looking at a shirt, tell us your collar, chest and waist size). Once we know your sizes, we can guide you as best we can to the right size for you. Alternatively, if you're able to come in store, we can measure you ourselves and advise accordingly.

Are you able to order in a specific product for me?

The honest answer is, it depends. Some items are a limited range and once they're gone, we're not able to get them again. Others we can order with relative ease and, some items depend on the manufacturer. If you're wondering about a certain product then contact us and we will let you know if it's something we can order in for you.

Do you offer a suit hiring service?

Unfortunately this is not a service we offer for any of our products. We do however, offer a wide variety of suits that you're more than welcome to try on in store and purchase.

Can you keep an item on hold for me?

Absolutely! Just let us know the specific item, size as well as your details and if available, we'll happily put the item aside for you until you're able to come in store. Alternatively, you can purchase the item online and we'll send it out to you as soon as possible.

If I purchase online, will I still get my membership points?

Yes. If you are a member of our Centenary club then, your points will automatically added to your account with each of your online orders.

I wish to return an item, is this possible?

If you wish to return an item for whatever reason, we do accept returns providing it's within 30 days of purchase. You can either return the item in store or post your order back to us. If you ordered online, you will have received a return label to use to post your item back to us. You can find our full return policy on our website.

    One of my favourite places to shop. You will always find something here that
    is different to the mainstream clothing shops, be it subtle or LOUD You could
    say it is pricey, but you do get what you paid for, and that is clothing of the
    highest quality. Last but not least is the staff, who are all fabulous and
    always make you feel welcome & on hand to help out if needed.
