Does the displayed fabric screen colour exactly match the fabric ?

Different monitors running different browser software will show minor colour variations. Every effort is made to ensure that the colour on the screen matches the fabric but if you are worried about this or the precise colour is absolutely essential to you then please get in contact and request an example fabric swatch.

How do you ensure precisely consistent colours for larger orders ?

It is important for larger wedding parties to place the order in one go. This will ensure that the same fabric dye-lot is used. If you give us a partial order and some time later the rest of the order then we can’t guarantee that the shade will be precisely the same for the two orders.

Will you work with customer supplied fabric?

Yes, we are able to make our style waistcoats in fabric that you supply. For more details of this service please e-mail us at
