Martin Hennigan set up ITSUITS a year before the pandemic hit. After training as an accountant in CIT, he went into a government job but as he came to 50, he decided a change in career was on the cards. He decided to set up a men’s formalwear shop in Cork. ITSUITS dresses men and boys for all occasions and has a tailor on-site to ensure a bespoke suit. The business has been hit hard by the pandemic and Martin has had to let staff go. He hopes it will pick up again as formal events return. Press Image To Listen

I am writing to you and hope your to give you a good news story about a popular men’s fashion store in Cork.
We had great difficulty in getting a suit for our groomsman that he could wear without needing help getting into it. Our grooms man was in a farming accident a number of years ago. As a result of the accident he lost the use of his legs and has partial use of his arms.
Both my fiancee and I (now my husband) searched for a suit for our groomsman that he could put on without any assistance.. My sister who lives and works in Cork city advised to go to It Suits in Blackpool, Cork city.
We explained the needs of our groomsman. The team said they would have no problem in making any adjustments to the hired suit so he can get himself ready without any assistance. We returned 3 days later for a fitting he (our grooms man) said never got dressed up as fast in a long time for a big occasion.
We were so impressed with the management and staff at It Suits that we hired all the suits for our special day.
