Your day is special for us too: Suit Hire

Suit hire is a popular option for wedding parties that allows you to create a cost-effective and personalised look for your wedding. Mike and Jo Knight came to see us before their wedding earlier this year. They chose a blue 3 piece suit with tan buttons for Mike, and matching waistcoats and trousers for the groomsmen, creating their own unique and fashionable look from the hire range.

McKnight & Brown are the exclusive agent for Rembrandt Suit Hire in Southland. Rembrandt have been making suits for 72 years - so you know you're getting the best! They regularly update their hire range to reflect current fashions and ensure great quality - no-one will know you're wearing a hire suit unless you tell them.

A range of options

We can create hire packages to suit your needs that can include suit jacket, trousers, waistcoats, and shirts. Our current suit hire range includes options in black, charcoal, navy, blue, and a dinner suit for black ties events. Plus, if the groom, or any of the groomsmen want a suit they can keep we can organise a mix of hire and purchase.


Our hire suits are sent down from Rembrandt headquarters in Wellington. We recommend you come and see us three to six months before the big day. This ensures plenty of time to decide on the colour and style that will be right for your wedding, get everyone measured up, and get the suits sent down.

Getting the perfect fit

We will measure you and your groomsmen in store to make sure we get the perfect fit for your hire wear. If some of your groomsmen live out of town they can go in to a Rembrandt stockist in their area to be measured and we can work from these measurements. Find your closest Rembrandt stockist here.

When the garments arrive in store we'll get everyone to try them on to double check that they are perfect. These individual fittings will only take about 15minutes so you can quickly pop in during your lunch break or over the weekend.
