How it all started...

In the 1980’s men began dressing down to work and therefore were not buying suits they did not require. The workplace was definitely becoming more casual... and so, during the 1980’s Mr Niels Strydom, then owner of the renowned Niels Menswear clothing boutique in Port Elizabeth started renting out suits to men who did not own their own, but needed them for special occasions and functions. The idea soon took off and within a few years Hire Society opened its doors and began trading as a fully fledged suit and accessory hire shop.

This trend continues today with Hire Society operating as the most successful men and boys' suit hire store in Port Elizabeth.
