Wedding Suit: Dressing up for your big day


Weddings are one of those occasions where fashion plays a major part and everyone tends to be self conscious on the dress they're putting on. So if you happen to be the "man" of the day, a.k.a the bridegroom, you ought to already figure out how you want to appear on your big day. Comtemporary styles these days features suits from all styles and colours, depending on the theme and the unique taste of the individual. A "Morning dress" is the traditional and classic choice for weddings and will typically consist of a black coat, grey stripe trousers, a traditional collar shirt, waistcoat and tie.


Trousers should be worn slightly above the waistline and rest on top of the shoe showing a slight crease at the front, aka, a half break or nowadays no break is also the way to go.
Waistcoats should sit comfortably over the waistband showing no signs of shirt. Brighter pastel colours are popular choices for weddings.
Shirt for special occasions should be of a premium quality and the sleeve typically show no more than a half an inch of the cuff when wearing a jacket.Too long and you'll be seen slumberish and too short doesn't show that perfect fit you want people to notice.
Ties should be worn in a Windsor knot, which produces a wide symmetrical triangular knot.


A matching three-piece suit will always remain a contemporary yet classic style. A three-buttoned single-breasted jacket has an extra top button and a slightly higher lapel, which makes the jacket suitable for taller men. Double-breasted jackets are becoming popular again with modern grooms. The weight of a suit’s cloth should be considered, particularly for summer weddings. Darker colours such as navy or grey give a timeless, sophisticated appearance.A plus factor especially in a sophisticated setting or venue.

Allow four to six weeks for a suit to be made for you, from initial fittings to final delivery. Look and see for yourself which kind of style do you want for your body.
