Since moving to Somerset, I had struggled to find an on-trend, quality menswear retailer in the local area without travelling into the city (which on occasions can be a chore). It was near impossible to sample a modern, tailored gents clothing outfitter – Until now…

As soon as I walked through the door in Suave Owl, I instantly knew that owners Anthony and Jessica shared my passion for fine apparel. Sophisticated yet personable, stylish 3-piece suits don the industrial style rails on either side of the store, with accessories and garments creatively placed to compliment the former.

After browsing the complete range and choosing the Marc Darcy ‘Harry’ 3 piece to add to my oversized (or so the wife calls it) collection, I took a seat on the oxblood Chesterfield sofa and proceeded to ask Anthony what the Suave Owl’s vision was. Anthony explained, ‘The collection of men’s clothing and accessories at Suave Owl have been carefully selected to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. Whether you are popping into the shopfront from the high street, or visiting the private showroom and bar, be assured that when you leave it will be with more than just a new outfit.’

Bar?! Did he just say bar? It was mid-Saturday afternoon and as many of us gents do, I had worked up a slight shopping thirst. Proceeding to lead me through the store and into the courtyard at the rear, Anthony unlocked a tucked away secret – ‘The Groom’s Room.’ Now I knew I was in the right place! A very refined, yet classy space with a finely stocked local brew bar for Groomsmen to come and enjoy being fitted for their wedding suits.

It struck me that attention to detail was high on the priority list at Suave Owl and that Anthony and Jessica’s ethos is simple, gents should ‘look and feel every inch the gentleman, whatever the occasion.’ Ultimately, they want men of all shapes and sizes to know that they can come to Suave Owl and that they will have their back.

So, what are you waiting for? If you’re looking for something a little different for your wedding day, away from the ‘high street hire suit’, Suave Owl should definitely be top of your Groom list!
