MEN’S ATTIRE

WHAT TO WEAR TO A WEDDING

Weddings are back. Make sure you’re stylishly suited and booted with our edit of the best suits for grooms, guests and best men – plus all the extras to finish off your look

For a city wedding: the single-breasted two-piece navy suit

The great thing about a wedding suit is that, if you buy right, you can wear it again and again after the big day is over. A blue single-breasted suit like our regular-fit suit with stretch (pictured) or our ultimate navy slim-fit suit will never go out of style, making it a savvy choice if you’re looking to get maximum wear out of your wedding tailoring. Add colourful accessories to coordinate with your wedding colour scheme and elevate the look beyond the office. A pair of well-polished black leather shoes is the perfect finishing touch.


For a relaxed country wedding: the grey two-piece suit

Grey suits are a popular choice for weddings in both the city and the country, but we think this textured grey slim-fit two-piece suit is the perfect match for a relaxed country wedding in a flower-filled marquee or rustic barn. Grey complements a variety of other colours, including buttercup yellow, blush pink and soft green, so a suit in this hue will work with multiple colour schemes and party themes, giving you plenty of options for your shirt and accessories. However, when it comes to footwear, only a pair of classic brown brogues will do.


For a wedding with a quirky venue: the pastel suit

You’ve secured the characterful bar, old-school music hall or industrial warehouse venue of your dreams – so you’re going to need a standout suit to suit your standout venue. Our pastel-blue three-piece suit is just the thing for the groom, or guest, who’s looking for something a little bit different. Although you could wear it as a two-piece suit, the addition of the waistcoat means you’ll still look smart if you ditch the jacket when you hit the dancefloor. Style it with a white shirt and patterned tie or go all out and wear it with a patterned shirt. Finish the look with a pair of brown suede loafers.


For a smart evening or black-tie wedding: the tuxedo

Thanks in no small part to its association with James Bond, the tuxedo is still considered the last word in sartorial elegance, making it a great choice for the groom who wants to look and feel fabulous and a must if the invitation says black tie. For a classic look, you can’t beat a black dinner jacket and matching pants teamed with a white dress shirt and a black bow tie. When it comes to footwear, go for a pair of lace-up Oxford shoes and add a final flourish with a pair of cufflinks.


For a beach wedding: the linen suit

With travel restrictions still in place, you might not be able to jet off to a wedding abroad just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan your outfit for future foreign nuptials – or a local do by the ocean. The best bet for a beach wedding is a linen suit in a light shade such as beige. Our linen miracle jacket, pants and waistcoat look just like linen but are made from a clever linen and polyester blend that’s easy to iron and won’t crease as easily, so you’ll stay looking sharp from the vows to the last dance. Add a tie for a more formal feel or go casual with a crisp white T-shirt and finish the look with brown suede loafers.
