You’ll Need Multiple Outfits
Weddings are not just about the actual ceremony, but involve a whole sequence of events, especially when it comes to the special couple. All require that you have suitable groom suits, and one decent suit is not going to suffice. You will be ‘on show’ during this time, so be prepared to engage in multiple outfit changes, from relaxed smart casual in the morning, to blazers in the afternoon, to your finest for the wedding and the reception following.Even after that, there is still the morning-after brunch and, of course, the honeymoon. Just as this is a time when couples get china sets that they will use throughout their life, this is also a time to take stock of your custom made-to-measure clothing and invest in some new clothing that you will continue to use for years to come.
Don’t Neglect the Shirts
You may think the full cut of your shirt will not be seen during your wedding, and while that’s probably true during the ceremony itself when you have a jacket on, it can be a different story later when cutting loose on the dance floor. Besides, even when your shirt is mostly covered up, knowing and feeling that you are wearing a custom-made shirt that is perfectly suited to you is part of what makes you look so good. You will project that in your posture and confident demeanor.
Here it’s all about expressing your personality as ties come in every shape, color, pattern, and fabric you can imagine. You can choose a big fat Windsor knot or select a slim tie for a cool, understated modern style. If you’re not an expert at color coordinating with the rest of your outfit, find a friend who is or start from scratch with a custom outfit where you get to pick the fabrics yourself. Depending on your style preference, you may opt for a bow tie, or, for a truly old-world aristocratic look, you and your best men could don cravats, which will turn everyone’s head.
