Suit up at Dorian Black Dublin
When it comes to your wedding or debs suit, there is one store that’s pulling out all the stops to ensure you’re well matched.
Dorian Black has been providing the public with quality suits since they were re-branded 6 years ago. Originally known as Suit and Tux warehouse, a move to the wedding market changed the direction of the brand with the first major change being its name.
DublinTown chatted to Thomas O’Keeffe the Store Manager and Wedding Co-Ordinator of the South Anne Lane branch who was eager to talk to us about the variety of suits and looks they offer within their ever-expanding range. We also discussed the company’s latest endeavor, their sister brand Celtic Tweed.
The wow factor for the store is the large suit wall that greets you when you walk in. You see the full color spectrum offered and can walk around at ease with the minimalist design. It’s simple and clean, and easier to find what you’re looking for.
The main colour trending in the store at the moment is French Navy but when it comes to a personal favourite for Thomas, it’s the Suffolk Suit, a wool three piece grey gold check suit. “It’s officially classed a brown suit but it has a rich grey undertone. As part of our London collection it is a slim fit suit. However this particular fit is incredible as it is based off our latest customer feedback which means it has a sharper fit in the body, arms and legs. As a full wool suit it gives a moulded affect, and as a natural fibre it’s breathable and great for dry cleaning –one of the key things to look for when buying a suit.”
All the suiting cloths, design, colour, linings are done by our own designers in-house and wont be seen in any other shop The three-piece suit has made a comeback with the majority of suits being bought as a three piece. But if this is not what you’re in to, you can mix and match, a feature the store prides itself on.
You can go with a completely different look from top to bottom, the option is there.
There is nothing better to complete a suit than a tie or bow-tie and Dorian Black has its fair share of unusual or standard colour block ties and bow-ties. They also have a range of shoes to really finish your suit making it a one-stop-shop for your suit needs.
For anyone going to their Debs, Dorian Black is running a number of promotions to make it more affordable. “We have three-piece suits that will work well for the debs, but also for interviews when you start looking for jobs. It is really important because you’ll be surprised at how often you will need a suit. Our Debs package offers a free shirt and tie for all customers who buy a three piece suit with shoes. This promotion starts from €99.”
For any grooms-to-be, the store has a wedding room where you and your groomsmen and/or fathers will be personally looked after in a private room to ensure you get the right style that suits everyone. For the little ones in your life, there is also a range of suits to help them look just as dapper as their Dad. You can drop in to book and appointment or just call the team on 01 679 9285
The Celtic Tweed collection is crafted in hard wearing wool cloth and can be worn together or separately with chinos or jeans making it a versatile brand. So far it’s been a hit with a number of grooms-to-be who want to give a nod to their Irish roots.
