So much focus is put on the bride's gown, but I think the groom should stand out just as much. Traditionally, grooms rent their suit or tuxedo but I think the occasion is the perfect excuse to indulge in purchasing a custom made to measure suit. By getting a suit made to your exact measurements, you have an item in your wardrobe that you can wear again and again to events, fancy restaurants, or for a big interview. I suggest going with a fabric that is a neutral and medium weight, like a charcoal grey, that you can pair with a variety of shirts and ties to get the most for your money after the wedding. In larger cities you can find a tailor who will create a bespoke suit for you, but you can also use one of the user friendly and affordable websites like Indochino or Black Lapel to order your suit online. You can customize the suits through these websites with options like different color linings and contrasting stitching. Below is my groom wearing his Black Lapel light charcoal blue suit with orange lining paired with a floral Ben Sherman shirt and ASOS green wool tie.
I want to inspire other grooms to show off fun patterns and colors on their wedding day and stand out from all the other suits. Order your grey suit and pair it with one of my shirt/tie/pocket square combinations to build a complex outfit using color and pattern.
Tip: When mixing patterns, choose one bold pattern and pair it with other subtle smaller patterns.
