After spending many weeks deciding on which store to entrust in the hire suits for our wedding, we settled on John Goodridge, and we were delighted with the results, personal service which made us feel we were there only clients, and beautifully presented suits.
Old school service with contemporary style. Best mens' outfitters. Great stock, great staff, great family business.
They helped us sort a suit for my fiancé to hire - lovely staff, impeccable service and suit looked fantastic! Highly recommended, very happy customer.
We needed help last minute with some waistcoats and ties for a wedding. Quick efficient and a wonderful service has saved my bacon. Many thanks Goodridges. I will be passing on your good name. 😉
