It’s time to shake off the formal tails, the morning suits and the boring plain shirts and embrace a new style of wedding dressing for the modern man. Traditionally it’s been women at the wedding who receive all the compliments but there is an ever increasing number of gentleman who want to share the spotlight.
Let’s face it, most of us only have one or two suit options in our wardrobe to choose from and when you look to the highstreet most people are only offering the same thing. Don’t get us wrong, a classic navy suit will always look great, but what about those of us who want something different? It’s all about feeling good in what you’re wearing.
Whether you’re the groom or a guest, let Ben Sherman show you how to mix up your suit game to stand out from the crowd this wedding season.
Mix and Match
Mixing colours and textures between your waistcoat and suit seems like a simple idea but many of us still play it safe with the matching 3 piece. It’s an easy way to stand out from the crowd. If you’re the groom, why not pick out the colour of the bridesmaid dresses or the bride’s flowers. Try our checked grey suit mixed with our blue tonic waistcoat, the light blue keeps it light, perfect for a summer wedding.
If you want to raise your sartorial game at a wedding it is not the time to play it safe with a plain shirt. It’s your chance to show off your style credentials, and a printed shirt can do just that. A bold patterned shirt can lift a plain coloured suit in the style stakes. Our paisley print shirt gives a nod to its Mod heritage and works perfectly with our dark teal blue tonic 3 piece suit.
It is really important to make a conscious effort with your tie and pocket square, don’t just go for the matching set. Pick out a colour from the suit weave or your shirt and use this as the base colour, that way everything will work together. If you aren’t feeling too daring, add some fun bright socks for a flash of colour.
