JOHN Hooks knows about the latest fashions and trends in formal menswear, and has opened his first hire shop in March.
"I know what photographs well for weddings and what colours go well together for general suits," he said. "Whether a suit is needed for a job interview, or the full top hat and tails for a wedding - I can sort it as well as everything in between."
John's Formal Hire opened its doors at 98 High Street last week and offers a complete range in formal menswear, in sizes to fit two-year-olds through to adults.
