A navy blue wedding suit perfect for an autumn or winter wedding.
There are plenty of options for the groom to be – from the morning suit to evening wear. However, given the above options all I could think of was Premiership footballers' weddings – the groom in his garish frock coat matched only by the gaudiness of the brides dress. Going down the hire route would also mean wearing a suit broken in and probably broken down by hundreds of men before me.
For my wedding I was looking for something stylish but timeless. It had to be something which wouldn't break the budget and I could wear again. I had always hoped to one day own an individually hand-tailored suit and my wedding seemed like the perfect excuse.
I came across www.aSuitThatFits.com via Google. I turned up at the www.aSuitThatFits.com City of London office to be measured. We went through the site's measurement wizard guide – it was packed full of useful hints and tips, so much so that next time round, I'd feel comfortable enough in taking my own measurements and posting them onto the website.
Having been sized up I sat down with one of www.aSuitThatFits.com founders, Warren Bennett to go through the fabric, lining and style options. Warren was full of good, and more importantly, honest advice – Your jacket sleeve should be approximately half an inch shorter than your shirtsleeve; to show off cuffs and cufflinks! Also, when buttoned, if your jacket looks 'boxy', you should have it taken in at the waist to create an hourglass shape for your body. There's nothing worse than having a suit that fits in the shoulders and hips but leaves you looking thick in the middle.
Only 4 weeks later www.aSuitThatFits.com promptly delivered my Navy Blue pure new wool suit to my door. I tried it on. The jacket and trousers fitted like a second skin. Obviously my wife was the centre of attention on the big day but it wasn't completely one sided – I had dozens of compliments on the day on my suit. I can honesty say that , now that I've experienced a suit that fits for the price of an 'off the peg' suit my days of shopping and swerving in and out of busy high street crowds are over.
