We can't deny our love of a good black suit, but navy blue has some serious sartorial swagger.
Here are three ways your beau can wear it well:
SHAPE SHIFT: Team this classic shade with an equally classic shape in the form of a tailcoat. Give it a modern spin with shorter tails and he won't feel like he's playing dress-ups.
HUE'S WHO: Encourage him to try blue on blue, or dress his groomsmen in differing hues for a cohesive colour combination.
TOUCH POINTS: Bring texture and visual interest to his ensemble by selecting embossed fabrics or materials with a slight sheen.Gallery: Grooms in The NavySuit and cotton shirt by Tommy Gun, sunglasses from Working Style, woollen bow tie from Munns, ring and Seiko watch from Stewart Dawsons, cotton socks from Barkers, leather shoes from Merchant 1948.
