Instantly knew we would deal with these guys!
We found these guys at the Ricoh arena wedding fair the year before our wedding and instantly knew we would deal with these guys. Very helpful at the stand and had some brilliant products with them. We then saw mark again at coombe abbey hotel and arranged to meet and try out some suit ideas at the shop in Stratford. Mark was extremely helpful the whole way through and offered all sorts of help. I decided to have a best man and also a best woman at the wedding so I wanted to get a dress to match the colour of the suits. Mark happily offered for us to take trousers home or a tie to match the colour. He did us a great deal and was professional through out whilst also at the same time feeling like a friend we had known for years. Great chaps and great service would 100% recommend.

Can’t rate them highly enough!
My future husband to be and myself have just left Richard Paul Meanswear and I can’t rate them highly enough. We walked in without an appointment to try and get an idea on what suits / colours to put the men in on our big day and I must say even though we walked in during a very busy time with both Mark & Alan running around helping swap jackets and suits for the people who were already appointed, Mark was straight over to se how we were and kept making sure we we’re looked after despite how busy they were. Once it was less busy Mark had nothing but time for us grabbing numerous combinations of waistcoats and jackets and was so patient even past closing time. We are just so glad we met him at the wedding fair we went to and feel like we have made a friend for life. See u in the New Year for the group fitting 👍🙂 x
