Really impressed with the suits and staff
We got the suits from Empire, me and my best men were really impressed with the service and the professionalism of them too. Even when I got the colour wrong on choosing the suits at the start, it wasn’t any trouble for them to help me get it sorted. It was relaxed and comfortable, which I’m not the most comfortable trying suits on.

The suits were amazing
I always feel uncomfortable shopping for suits, but in empire they made me feel comfortable and welcome. Even when I chose the wrong colour theme! It was no trouble for them, and got it sorted with the right shade of red. I would definitely recommend the store. Thee suits were very good quality, as were the staff and store. Will be buying my next suit for a friends wedding from here.

We had excellent service.
Thank you guys. We had excellent service. Fast, efficient and easy to deal with. Everyone was polite and helpful, but most of all on such a busy and hectic time ,preparing for a wedding, they made this part so much easier. We ordered a child's suit for our wedding and it was a perfect fit first time..

Amazing range and helpful staff
Myself and my husband had to attend a wedding at the weekend and like a typical man he left it until last minute. We popped into Empire on the off chance they may have something in store. We were amazed at how helpful the gentleman were and the range they had in store. We managed to get a suit with alterations, shirt, footwear and tie within a week. We couldn't thank them enough. Would 100% recommend and will be using them again. Like
