Louis Copeland & Sons have something to suit everyone. They have a wide range of brands in store including Canali, Strellson, Hugo Boss and their very own Louis Copeland Label. “We pride ourselves on offering our customers the best garments, advice, and service along with complimentary alterations. We carry a great selection of shirts and accessories, including ties, shoes, socks, cuff-links, pocket squares, and belts. We can also custom make ties and pocket squares for your groomsmen so they match the bridesmaids perfectly.”



Whether you’re looking for a suit that’s ready to wear or even something that’s made to measure, Louis Copeland is the way to go. Opting for something from the made-to-measure collection, however, will ensure you’re getting the best style and fit for you. Here’s how the whole process works:

“Our Sales Executives will assist you through the entire design process, from colour and fabric choices right down to the type of stitch used. The process begins by establishing the perfect size and fit for you. You will then choose the outer fabric and the lining for your suit from the vast selection of exquisite fabrics, available in a huge range of patterns and colours. We then explain all the options available to you regarding the style of your suit. You can choose one or two button fastening, single or double breasted, regular or peak lapels, the style of the pockets, the colour of the contrast stitching and the buttons. You can even have the inside pocket or under collar embroidered with something significant to you. At this point, all your details are noted and within five to six weeks your suit will be available for collection in store and ready for wear.”


We’re lucky enough to be able to share Louis Copeland’s words of wisdom with you. We’d recommend you heed his advice. He knows a thing or two!

–     The best advice I can give to a groom is keep it simple.Always imagine what your wedding picture will look like and remember in 20 years’ time you don’t want to look at it and think “I know it was all the rage then but I looked silly”. Timeless, simple and classic is always a good idea.

–     Having said, that the biggest change in recent years is for a one-off, made-to-measure suit for the groom, usually in a plain three piece or subtle check, with blues being popular although recently grey is coming back.

–     Little details like fancy lining , mother of pearl buttons and putting the date of the wedding on the back of the collar so the groom never forgets the anniversary are now the norm.

–     The groomsmen can wear plain suits in the same colour palette. For example, blue for groom and navy for groomsmen etc.

–     Ivory tie for the groom and ties that match the bridesmaids’ dresses for the groomsmen, but again I always try to keep the whole wedding party to three colours in total. Bow ties are very popular.

–     Pocket squares or hankies are a big menswear trend. However, with floral buttonholes, it’s usually frowned on to have a hankie. Having said that, a white shirt and matching white cotton hankie peeking out of the breast pocket can look good and be practical.

–     I always recommend the groom buys two shirts, particularly for summer weddings in case he needs to freshen up or anything spills on it.

–     A properly fitted suit is vital, particularly now the slim and super-slim suits are in fashion. This is where getting advised by an expert pays off.
