Jack Bunneys Wedding Suit Hire Service - A few explanations etc. Jack Bunneys

Jack Bunneys has often been at odds with the wedding industry.

I know that is a strange way to start a blog post about our 'successful' Wedding-Suit-Hire service but that is the truth.   I am sure the reason that Jack Bunneys actually have any success at all in the wedding industry is precisely because we are at odds with the rest of the industry.   When I first started writing this blog way back in 2007, I talked about the stagnant nature of our industry.  I talked about how a culture of apathy had developed, how a reluctance to change was dragging small and large business alike into a downward spiral of lower prices and less custom.

Well we tried to do things differently.  We tried everything we could think of!  But most importantly we tried to do things that we really liked!  In the hope that we were not the only ones who liked what we liked.  If you know what I mean.  

We tried finer materials.  We tried different colours.  We tried slimmer fits.  We tried losing the fancy waistcoats.  We tried introducing different styles.  We tried inventing new genres.  We tried inventing new services and new ways of looking at the industry.   In short we did what we wanted and to hell with what the industry told us we should be doing.   

At times we got it wrong.  We were either way off the mark or the timing was just not quite right.  But in most cases we found that if we liked it, then there was someone else out there who shared our enthusiasm.  

Using this method we had success.

Because we had success, others changed too.  And because they had success, even more changed too.   Now it is 2014 and most 'Wedding Suit Hire' services offer finer cloths, better fits, different services and generally a better quality product all round.   I am not saying Jack Bunneys are totally responsible for this revolution but we had a good hand in it.  

For us it does not stop here.  Yes we have achieved what we set out to achieve back in 2007 ('To Change The World Of Formalwear Forever') but we are not finished.  We are always working on new ideas, new designs, new services.   

With all this success, I suppose we should be millionaires and opening branches all over the world? Millionaires we are definitely not, and in regards to opening other branches; not yet.  Maybe one day we will want to expand, we certainly could but right now we are all happy and content in our small business.  Here we can micro-manage the business, we can be hands-on with every single order and talk to every single customer.  Will Jack Bunneys be the same without this?  I am not sure.  

That leaves us here, with a successful 'Wedding Suit Hire' business but with a desire to be something other than that.  We want to be more, we want to be innovators and revolutionaries.  

So we strike a balance.  Some of the time we are "Bespoke Tailors", creating unique extraordinary suits for the most special of occasions, some of the time we are "Designers' creating ready-made wedding outfits to hire and buy and the rest of the time we are managing our 'Wedding Suit Hire' business. 

This leads me onto my point. (I know it took a while right?!)

We simply cannot be all things to all people.  Jack Bunneys is a small business, a 'Boutique' business, specialising in wedding suits, whether they are to hire or buy.  We do not hire 100's of suits every week, we do not sell 1000's of suits every week.  We balance the two, we hire as many suits as we can.  But we will not hire any more than we can cope with.  We will not compromise quality by booking more than we can prepare properly.  

If you are wondering why we are 'FULLY BOOKED' for your wedding date in 2014, it is simply that others booked before you did.  We are not discriminating, we are not being unreasonable, we will not by bought with offers of 'paying extra'.  We are booking as many wedding-hire-suits as we can, as many as we want to or as many as we need to.    

If you are one of those who has booked Jack Bunneys for your 'Wedding Suit Hire' in 2014 rest assured that we will be working exceptionally hard to make sure that your suits are as good as they can be and you will also be receiving a product that has been designed by 'Bespoke Tailors' who specialise in creating amazing wedding suits.
