A 3 piece suit is the must have for style-conscious grooms next season. If you are getting married in the height of summer you should be looking at either a 9 ounce wool or even a lightweight linen suit. It is always preferable to go for made to measure rather than off-the-peg to achieve a smart tailored look. Marc Wallace offer a range of handmade suits and accessories to compliment your look.
Your colours will need to compliment the bridesmaids’ dresses, so get as much information on those as possible, a sample of the fabric would really help you out. Don’t go over the top with matching your waistcoat, tie and hankerchief – the general idea is to choose a patterned waistcoat, in-keeping with the general colour theme of the wedding, and then highlight the main colour – usually worn by the bridesmaids – by wearing a plain cravat or tie, and handkerchief.
If you are wearing a Morning Suit, then cravats should only be worn by the Groom and Best Man. A high necked waistcoat will stop the cravat from ‘escaping’. And remember that it is traditional for the bottom button on your waistcoat to be left undone!
