                                            1.
OUR HISTORY
 1914 – Mr Hugh Harris established the business with the sole aim being to
 offer a premier Menswear range to the gentry of Woking, Surrey. This was
 very much achieved and it wasn’t long before clients visited Mr Hugh Harris
 from afar to be dressed. From good old-fashioned cavalry twill trousers to
 a cloth cap, from fully tailored made to measure suiting to a silk top pocket
 hanky, Hugh Harris at that time epitomised the quality and the style of the
 day.

 1980’s - Flash forward some 70 years the same values and qualities remained,
 with great emphasis being placed on customer care and knowledgeable
 service. It was around this time when trends changed toward formal wear
 with more and more acceptance towards formal wear or “top hat & tails”
 being seen. To this end Hugh Harris started its own department within its
 Menswear store to specialise and cater specifically for this market.

 With very few “independent” formal wear departments existing at that time
 major growth was soon achieved. However choice or quality from suppliers
 within the industry remained stagnant limiting our aims at offering “The
 Hugh Harris Style”. With the desire to offer Formal Wear based on our
 history and reputation, investment in quality formal wear of our own
 design was undertaken. Pure fabrics, more fitted designs and general
 quality improvements were sought and eventually achieved ensuring that
 Hugh Harris could offer a difference.

 2010-2011. Having won many trade awards in recent times via several
 different organisations, voted for by our peers or indeed the public, the
 team at Hugh Harris are pleased to offer you an unrivalled range of formal
 wear, to hire or purchase, “off the peg” or “made to measure”, traditional
 formal wear through to Savile Row tailored outfits. We have kept the values
 and vision of Mr Hugh Harris and added our own modern slant to things.
 We truly believe that Hugh Harris offers “A Cut Above”.

SUIT STYLES AND OUTFIT SELECTIONS

 “There are many old wives tales, books and opinions about formal
 wear. We say, wear what suits you – simple.”


 Morning Suit
 Many rules have applied to this style of outfit. Traditionally worn to
 weddings and Royal Ascot, the morning suit remains the most popular
 wedding choice.




 Lounge Suit
 Lounge Suits can be worn for any event and are now very popular for
 weddings. With a stylish suit accessorised in a very wedding way you
 can achieve a more casual yet formal look.




 Dinner Suit
 An alternative to the normal wedding suit, a Dinner Suit or “Tux” can
 be worn at weddings especially for later weddings. Shown here in the
 traditional vibe, also dressing a Tux with wedding accessories creates a
 very different yet smart look.



 Other Suit Styles
 Black Tie, Frock Coats, Highland Outfits, Prince Edward, ¾ Length Styles.
 All are available from Hugh Harris’s stock or we can order these in for you.

WAISTCOATS AND NECKWEAR
 A waistcoat is more than an accessory, it is an
 important garment in its own right and should
 enhance your chosen suit style and colour.

 This being the case you will find a range of designs
 and colours created specifically for Hugh Harris to
 “fit the bill”. Colour, shape and of course pattern is
 a priority but so is quality. Made from pure silks
 whether they be Dupion, Woven or Embroidered,
 your wedding suit will be finished off in style.

 We have shown each waistcoat with a co-ordinated
 cravat or tie. All colours are available in a cravat,
 tie or bow tie and all have a matching top pocket
 hanky. We have shown each waistcoat with a co-
 ordinated colour, but the sky is the limit.

 The waistcoats shown are just a selection of our
 range. To view all waistcoats, please visit www.

ESSENTIAL ACCESSORIES
 A group can either look harmonious or a little messy. You have concentrated
 on the suit style but what about the shoes? Your shirt needs cuff links but
 can you trust your guys to pack them? We believe the finer details are
 essential for two reasons. Firstly they enhance any outfit such as a gleaming
 fob chain on your waistcoats. Secondly logistics.

 Our experience tells us that your groomsmen might “claim to have decent
 shoes”, or “yes mate I have some cuff links you can borrow”. BUT when it
 comes down to it, usually an hour before your do, guess what, problem
 time. Of course we would suggest hiring everything, but detail really is an
 important area to consider.

 All accessories are available to hire or purchase. If you wish to purchase we
 would suggest 4 – 8 weeks notice. If you wish to hire, perhaps the following
 NEW package may be of interest.

WHY WILLIAM HUNT?
  Having been offering traditional formal attire for many years, adding colours
  and styles seemed to be the only way of offering you more choice. Having
  reached the limits that formal wear set us, the only way forward was to offer a
  different variation on the traditional themes. With manufacturing being a little
  cautious or “standard”, the design team at Hugh Harris set about searching for
  a higher quality garment that also exudes a designer vibe to formal wear.


NO “I” IN TEAM
  The project with William Hunt is looked after by Mr Douglas Hood.
  Douglas has experience in Menswear and suiting of over 30 years. Working
  alongside YSL and Ozwald Boateng, his experience regards suit making is
  second to none. Add the experience of Steve Bishop, a Director of Hugh
  Harris who has over 25 years in the formal end of Menswear & Menswear
  suiting to find a collaboration that has created the most prestigious, quality
  and relevant range of wedding suits.

  “What makes Hugh Harris different?” I hadn’t thought about it in those
  terms for a long time so, taking a bit time of to think about it, all I could
  work out is that I simply want to offer our clients a difference, not just the
  clothing but customer service as well. We are a part of one of the biggest
  events in a couple’s life so everything we do has to bear that in mind.
  Steve Bishop – Hugh Harris & YWS

  Nothing makes me more proud than seeing one of our creations adding to
  the sense of any occasion, especially a wedding. Someone asked me how to
  describe a suit, all I could think of is this, “it’s all about the style”.
