Formalwear for Masonic meetings is readily available from Bartlett & Butcher, the Hampshire (Hants) Surrey and Berkshire hire wear specialists.
We can advise on all requirements for hire but the majority of our customers buy their Masonic wear as appropriate. Much depends on the particular lodge being visited but the recognised formal dress is a short black jacket and striped trousers, white shirt, black tie and white gloves.
Nevertheless, and again depending on the lodge, a dark suit, usually grey, is worn with a white shirt, black tie and white gloves.
Members will advise as to which attire is preferred at each lodge.
We stock both formal short black jackets from £195 to £345, depending on the quality, and conventional dark suits starting from £295, all tailored to fit.
