It’s his day too. And if you’re like most guys, you want to look your best on this important day.

Wedding Suits For Groom And Groomsmen

 

Lots of guys get married in suits. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, we’ve espoused the idea of a wedding suit in this very publication in the past. But if you’re looking for a foolproof way to be the best dressed man at your own wedding, nothing beats the wedding tuxedo. Not only does a wedding tux give you an appropriate level of formality (you will be standing next to someone in a wedding gown after all), but the wedding tux is also one of the easiest outfits to look good in. The clean lines of a dark tuxedo with a formal white shirt and simple, stylish accessories like a black bow tie, a white pocket square and a set of cufflinks and studs, makes this a straightforward expression of masculine style that is beyond compare. There’s a reason men have been donning the wedding tux since the days of the horse and buggy. Not much has changed with the tuxedo because this basic outfit is so effective at making men look good. Here are our set of rules for a wedding tux that will make any groom look great:

Always Bet On Black

Ultimate Wedding Tux Guide - Black-Custom-Tuxedo-with-Peak-Lapels

We’re not big fans of the black suit for festive occasions like weddings, but a Black Custom Tuxedo with Peak Lapel is a different animal. It works for everyone because the clean lines and simplicity of the black and white presentation makes this tuxedo fool proof. Just don’t go messing with a classic: get one that fits, pair it with a white shirt and (duh) black tie and you’ve stamped your ticket to Dappertown.


Head Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Wedding Tux Guide Midnight Blue Custom Tuxedo

Never to be outdone by black for versatility and style, dark blue is a fine alternative to the black tuxedo. The deep dark Midnight Blue Custom Tuxedo is great for evening weddings. Even under the glare of artificial lighting (a.k.a. at night) the hint of color lends this tux a rich darkness that only midnight blue can achieve.


Give Yourself the Royal Treatment

Wedding Tux Guide - Royal Blue Custom Tuxedo

If you’re not a traditionalist or just don’t like the penguin palette of most tuxedos, a tuxedo in a lighter color, like this Royal Blue Custom Tuxedo, might be perfect wedding tux for you. Is it bold? Yes, but what better time to wear something bold than your wedding day. You won’t upstage your bride (all eyes will be on her and her dress), but when all eyes are on her, her eyes will be on you. Dress accordingly.


What’s Black and Blue and Fly All Over?

Wedding Tux Guide - Royal Blue and Black Custom Dinner Jacket and Pants

Think a full tuxedo is the only way to do black-tie? Think again, the non-matching dinner jacket and pants look is back. That’s right, we said “back” because it’s actually not that new of an idea. Your grandfather watched Humphrey Bogart woo Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca with a non-matching dinner jacket (and pants and thought I could totally rock that look.) back in the 40s. Suffice it to say you won’t be going out on a limb if you wear this Royal Blue and Black Custom Dinner Jacket and Pants. You’ll just be going out and out badass.


Use Your Gray Matter

Wedding Tux Guide - Gray Sharkskin Custom Suit

So you want to get married in a suit, huh? That’s using your noodle. Going with a Gray Sharkskin Custom Suit not only ensures you’ll look great, but gives you a classic addition to your wardobe for future use. This one will get you through the wedding and be waiting for you when you get back from the honeymoon and go back to your office.


Killing ‘Em With Khaki

Wedding Tux Guide - Khaki Linen Blend Custom Suit

Whether it’s a tropical destination wedding, a beach wedding or just your run of the mill mid-summer scorching temperature wedding, you can always go lightweight and light colored with a Khaki Linen Blend Custom Suit. While khaki may get a bad rap from guys who wear it like Jake from State Farm, a linen blend suit in a light sandy tone that fits you flawlessly is a stylish summer wedding look.

Tips for Wearing a Suit

Here are some subtle tips for wearing a suit that will instantly make you look more put together.

1. FIND THE RIGHT SHOULDER FIT FIRST

Did you know shoulders are the hardest area to tailor on a suit?  Avoid the dreaded shoulder divot, and instead choose a suit that fits your shoulders best when shopping off the rack. Your tailor can easily take in the waist and adjust for length, so shoulders should be your primary concern when suit shopping.

2. GET YOUR SLEEVE AND PANTS TAILORED

tailored

A good fit is the first step to looking fresh in a suit. Without a suit that hugs and hangs from your body in all the right places, you’ll look sloppy and disheveled — no matter how hard you try. Invest a few extra bucks in tailoring your suit to get the perfect fit, and you’ll instantly look more polished.

3. INVEST IN A QUALITY DRESS SHIRT, BELT AND SHOES

Sure, you know suits are an investment, but what about the rest of your look? A quality shirt, belt and shoes go a long way in tying together your professional look. Don’t skimp on these, or you’ll cheapen your suit. Check out HisFavoriteShirt.com for top men’s dress shirt brands to complete any look.

4. SAVE YOUR SUIT WITH A SLEEK UNDERSHIRT

In high-stress environments, sweat will find a way to soak through any barrier. Your dress shirt, your suit jacket — sweat will test the limit at the worst moment possible. Do yourself (and your co-workers) a favor, and wear an undershirt beneath your dress shirt. Blocking sweat from your dress shirt will help hide those jarring underarm sweat marks and help your shirts look fresher, longer. Opt for a sweat proof undershirt like Thompson Tee to guarantee no one sees you sweat. Read more tips on how to stay cool in a suit.

5. CHOOSE A TIE THAT’S DARKER THAN YOUR SHIRT

Unsure which tie to choose? As a general rule of thumb, your tie should be darker than your shirt to create balance. Also, avoid matching the pattern of your tie and dress shirt. For example, with a checkered shirt, try a paisley tie to offset the more casual checkered pattern.

6. PERFECT THE TIE DIMPLE

What’s a tie dimple, you ask? That natural divot at the top of your tie that looks deceivingly unintentional. Really, perfecting the tie dimple is an art that requires a bit of practice and patience. For the best chance at achieving a tie dimple, use a thick, wide tie made of silk or cashmere and stay away from cotton ties.

7. MATCH YOUR SHOES AND BELTmatch

Coordinating your shoes and belt is an easy way to create a more cohesive look.

8. UNBUTTON YOUR JACKET BEFORE SITTING DOWN

unbuttoned

You stand up and sit down repeatedly all day. But sitting in a suit is a quick way to ruin it. Make a habit of unbuttoning your jacket before sitting down to avoid stretching it out and potentially popping buttons (the kind of attention you definitely don’t want in a board meeting.)

9. DON’T BE WARY OF A SNUG JACKET

The fit of your jacket is crucial. Although you might want some breathing room, your suit jacket should actually fit quite snug. In fact, when placing your hand between your chest and suit jacket, it should have just a little room to move. If your hand has plenty of wiggle room, your jacket may be too big.

10. EXPOSE YOUR SLEEVE CUFFS HALF AN INCH

Long jacket sleeves look dated and sloppy. Show your attention to detail by exposing your sleeve cuffs half an inch.

11. PERFECT THE LENGTH OF YOUR TIE AND JACKET

While short ties might have been in during the 1940s, today they’re a major faux pas. Both extra-short and extra-long ties make you look disheveled and throw off the balance of your look. Your tie should just graze the top of your belt buckle or fall an inch below. But it should never reach below the belt. As for suit jackets, they should cover your pants zipper and butt.

12. MATCH THE WIDTH OF YOUR TIE AND LAPEL

Match width

This is one overlooked detail that makes a huge difference. When pairing a tie with your suit, be sure to match the width of your tie with the width of your lapel. This creates symmetry — an essential for rocking any suit.

13. WEAR LONG DRESS SOCKS & STEER CLEAR OF WHITE

socks

Want to know a quick way to diminish your fresh look in a suit? Flash white athletic socks or a little leg when sitting down in an important meeting. Although you might not think anyone will see your socks, it’s sure to happen when you least expect it. Save some of your dignity, and invest in dress socks.

The key to owning your suit is making your look appear effortless. With these subtle tips for wearing a suit, you’ll instantly look more refined.
