The Gentlemen’s Guide on Suiting Up in Style

We are all familiar with dressing to the nines with an all-black suit. For the slightly more adventurous gentlemen, they may steer towards more colours or channel their inner prince charming with an all-white ensemble. Whatever you your groom-to-be feels like wearing on your Big Day, we’re sure he’ll look dapper and oh-so-handsome! Today’s feature article is a treat for him and you! To complete your ever-growing Pinterest board, we have put together some ‘Sartorialist’ worthy suits to dress up your man in. Scroll all the way until the end darlings (and sirs), because we have a surprise for you with a hand-painted suit! Now get ready and measure up, it’s time to get to that tailor.


(1) Fifty Shades of Gray

For those who want to play safe, this will be the color for you. To take things up a notch, play it up with different shades and textures of gray. Interestingly, lighter colored fabrics photograph well with the bridal gown.

(2) From Midnight Blue to Sky Blue

Blue, or more specifically navy, is the next favourite other than black, gray, or white. This color is so versatile that by switching up the cut, fabric, or shade, it can take you from day to night. We like how this adds a pop of color without being too advant garde.

(3) Earth Toned Colors for a Classic Outdoor Wedding

Best suited for the season of Autumn, or even that destination beach wedding you have been dreaming of, shades of brown, beige, or cream are good alternatives for white. These colors are suitable for more laid-back weddings and are also perfect for day time garden weddings. Do note that the material is key here. For colder temperatures in autumn, go for tweed or wool. We will get to summer choices in just a bit.

(4) Linen for Your Summer Beach Wedding

If you are having a beach wedding, stick to fabric choices like cotton, linen, or seersucker. Your body will thank you for being able to breathe through those layers. You could even ditch that jacket and go with a vest instead.

(5) Pull it off with Pinstripes and Plaid

If your groom likes the attention and wants to be remembered for what he wore on his wedding day, spice things up with some patterns. The combinations for patterns and colors are endless–plus they add a different visual dimension to your outfit. There is just something about patterns that make grooms look so stylish and dapper!

(6) Go All Out with Different Colors

Fern green, dusty pink, burgundy red, mustard yellow–you name it, you can have it. Let your groom have some fun with all sorts of colors. There is no better way to celebrate than to indulge in your wedding color theme and have your groom dressed in the color itself!

(8) Mix it Up with Separates

If one cannot decide on a single color, break up the monotony with different colored jackets and pants. Want a more polished look? Go for materials like silk and wool. Patterns and casual fabrics will do the opposite of that.

(8) Double Style Points with a Double Breasted Suit

If you want to up the formality, you won’t go wrong with a double breasted suit. With the extra buttons and fabric that is going on in this tailoring, one must note that the fit for such suits need to be good, if not perfect.

Ranging from pocket squares, to buttons, shirts, bowties and ties, take a look at how these outfits have been transformed!
