Wedding bells are ringing: it’s time to look your best! You can begin by looking in the mirror; after all, it’s your body that you’re dressing… Seeing a model in a suit is one thing, but you need to think about what will work for you. If your shape is tall and slim, you have lots of great options to work with.
The classic groom style is the three piece suit, comprising trousers, jacket and waistcoat, which lends a sense of grandeur to the occasion. Happily, it’s also a brilliant choice for tall, thin men, as the layering adds depth and breadth to the torso, and looks utterly elegant on a tall body. For the most fairytale wedding, opt for the ‘Wedded Bliss’ suit, and become your bride’s prince charming in an ivory waistcoat.

For a more traditional but equally striking outfit, go for the Bentley three piece. It is all suave navy on the outside, and a secret pop of passionate purple on the inner lining.
You can really have fun with the lining of your suit, and make it reflect your personality.
Choose pink for romance with the D5 Hotpink option, or make everyone green with envy with the glorious D4 Torq option. Be artistic and classic all at once with 304 Gunmetal, in a grey and silver paisley print. The Bride is often full of mystery on the day, and is bound to have some luxurious lingerie to show you later, so why not keep a few sexy secrets of your own?
Tall men also look superb in tailcoats, trousers) and black or navy (for the jacket), and you can use the cravat and waistcoat to add a splash of colour to proceedings. Go for standard lapel width if you want to create the illusion of a broader chest, and choose from 0-6 buttons on each cuff (those long arms will look good with as many as you choose!). Your bride will feel a million dollars when she sees you dressed to the nines in tails or a morning suit.
