He’ll look his dapper best for years to come in a suit that lasts the distance.
If you can, buy
Use this as an opportunity to invest in a quality suit he can wear on the big day and beyond. As well as setting him up for slick dressing at all formal occasions for years to come, purchasing a custom-made or easily altered suit ensures it fits perfectly and represents the style of your day.
Collect a selection of pictures to illustrate the looks you like – this will help a tailor make suggestions that will work for your style of wedding and the time of year. As far as choosing a tailor goes, seek out a place he has personally shopped at – and liked – or one that comes highly recommended.
Think about theme, colours and fabric
If he’s looking for a suit that will see him through the next decade, opt for heavier, thicker fabrics that will hold their shape better. Dark colours, too, offer a more versatile aesthetic. However, it pays to keep your wedding season top of mind – light grey suits make for a cool yet classic alternative to traditional darker colours.
Make sure it fits well
Whether he goes to a suit shop or gets it custom made, make sure his suit is tailored to his body – it’ll make for a more slick look come W-day.
