A Suit That Fits Blog
The Number One Suiting Resource
Somebody once asked 'whatever happened to the likely lads?' Well, I can tell you. They were all in attendence at Customer Nick Cross's wedding!
Aside the obvious logistical difficulties - Nick works nights and one of the groomsmen serves Queen and country and is based at Plymouth - the apparent hectic schedules of each of the groomsmen meant that we never once saw them all in the same room.
So you can imagine our delight on Queen Square when we received this pic of the lads together - complete with 1969 VW split screen camper: the wedding wheels in the background - looking sharp as razors in their matching regalia.
Blue has definitely trumped grey this wedding season, and whether navy, petrol or even sky blue there are myriad shades and, moreover, cloths to choose from.
Suiting cloth colour still wins the day when it comes to deciding on what to wear - as it should, you'll be looking at your wedding photos for a long time to come - very closely followed by texture, finish and weight.
Unless you have a colour in mind, for example one that compliments the wedding dress or is the colour you and your bride have agreed you'd like to be married in, I believe it is important to select a suiting cloth that compliments your complexion; hair colour, eye colour, skin tone as this suit will always 'suit' you.
Nick's choice of navy blue looked good on all the lads and made them all look sharp - in some instances the transformation was remarkable, taking the wearer from beach bum to sartorially savvy, but I will mention no names..
The colour scheme of your wedding can be reflected, if desired, in the lining of your suit and, if a 3pc suit, the back of your waistcoat. This is particularly effective, not to mention impressive, if your betrothed is not even aware that you are familiar with the colour-scheme of your big day!
Irrespective the 'likeliness of lad' there are few who would argue that us men scrub-up well and though there are few things that we can bring to the register table, turning out in matching suits is a sure fire way to win over your bride and the congregation.
Congratulations to Lucy and Nick..
