Planning a wedding is a challenge, ask any one, but it can become even harder when you're instructed to stick to a theme. Hands up guys if you've ever been faced with 'sticking to the theme' for either your own or a friends wedding? Or indeed if you are currently faced with such a hurdle and all you want is a classic stylish suit that fits like a dream and you can maybe wear again? The desire to fulfil both the role of wedding suit and future use is becoming increasingly important to the dapper chap as the purse strings are pulled ever tighter.
Well here are a few challenges that some of my chaps have been faced with in the past few months, with some great options that you can go for to solve all your theme related problems.
My quick fix guide will hopefully give you a few ideas to make sure the theme is met and you've got a suit you love for however long you want it. Remember, sometimes thinking out side the box can lead to stunning results. This week I'm looking at 'Reds and pinks.'. Pink and Red
This is a lovely option if you want to keep your suit classic. Go for the contrast detailing on the button holes and a bold red splash of paisley in the lining. This option looks fantastic with the mid to dark greys or black. If you wanted to be bolder with your pink theme choose the orchid lining and slip a hot contrast colour in for added fun. When using lighter pink and red tones you can also happily play with the lighter greys.
For something really stunning go with the the image below. The mixture of both a tailcoat and waistcoat in red tones is kept classic with grey trousers and a white shirt. It's got an amazing Ascot-esk feeling and for future use you could get the lounge jacket to match.
If you going for a more subtle look you could go with a light grey two piece suit with red melton. This way you wedding suit can more easily morph into an events or work suit.
One of my clients really pulled off a more classic interpretation of the red theme by sticking with burgundy tones: Mark really shined in his suit on his wedding day. He was a little worried at first but now he really loves it. A great outfit for versatility; the jacket works well with jeans for casual honeymoon wear and it looks good with a floral Hawaiian shirt, although I did promise Mark I wouldn't put up that picture.
So, reds and pinks are a relatively easy one but getting the balance right is very important. If you really don't suit bright reds as a colour pick on softer shades and blend tones rather than having perfect matches. Having everything in just three shades can be harsh on the eye and while you do want to follow the theme, you don't want to look as if you are the theme.
As for Zombie themes, it's not something I'd advice but a background level of red works really well!

We can tailor a garment down to a quarter of an inch of its life, allowing us to design the style you have always dreamed about at a price which won't break the bank. Below are a couple of pictures nicely supplied by Bal and Dal. What a lovely couple they make. They came to see us just before Christmas at an asian wedding show in Birmingham. After speaking to the both of them I realized we could definitely help and I booked them an appointment to come into our studio. Bal's suit took 6-8 weeks to make. We designed a one button single breasted three piece suit in a medium grey pure wool with hand stitched notched collar.
We added little touches to match with Bal and Dal's the wedding colours. The suit jacket had contrast piping in a ES silk electric blue as well as making a feature of the cuff stitching by stitching the last buttonhole in electric blue. We even made him a matching tie in the suit cloth. What a great look, very smart with a bespoke shirt which also had different styling attributes as seen below. We used a large paisley lining to go with the contrast piping with an individual label with their initials and wedding date. This made Bal's suit extra special for his big day. The bespoke shirt is cut half inch longer than the jacket sleeves to create the perfect look. As you move your arms your shirt cuffs will show for that perfect style. We added top stitching all around the shirt to match with the wedding colours and all the button stitching was made in grey with white buttons. The under collar and cuffs are also made in grey for a nice contrast against the white shirt. This gives little hints of detail without overpowering the whole outfit, it looks just great!
After the harsh winter, it is now time to welcome the pleasant spring and summer. The long awaited season lightens not only your mind but also an enormous weight off your shoulders; the weight of sweaters and coats!.
Summer suits are the way to go; play with the style, cut, fabric and colour to really stand out from the crowd. Here are few handy tips you can use to make your summer suits more fun. Choose the right fabric: They say that a suit looks best in heavy fabrics like wool and cotton wool blends, however, it is time to wave good bye to these fabrics come summer. Linens , cottons and light weight tweeds are the most suited for the season. If plain linens are not for you, then choose pin stripe or check fabric. Don't worry about a lighter fabric not falling that well, because our suits are made-to-measure they curve, nip and tuck around your body contours perfectly.
A good option for summer is a Mohair fabric (of which we have several), this natural fabric breathes beautifully and keeps you cool in the height of the sticky summer. Colours for spring/summer: Fashion forecasters predict the colours for every season.
The colours to flaunt this spring are whites, crmes, beiges, and light shades of grey, light brick, pastel brown and fresh powder blue. I have put together a range of fabrics and colours that you must look at if you want to explore colour for your next suit; Linen-1 (white), Linen-5 (crme), Linen-19 (camel), Ivory-GVWN-31 (ivory), LGW-Plain-28 (ochre), VBC-121 (grey), CT-UK-9 (herringbone), LGW-Plain-31 (peach) and LGW-Plain-4 (beige).
Can you try this: Men are looking for excitement in fashion, says Bottega Veneta, Creative Director Tomas Maier. If that is what you believe to be true, then here are some creative tips you might want to experiment with:
Floral, paisley or geometric tone on tone prints on your choice of linings.
Give your ties a rest! Flaunt the shirt with a wide open collar.
If you work in a creative business, how about a summer jacket with a pair of well tailored shorts?
If you love the length of your trousers and do not wish to crop them, try getting shorter on the length of the jacket? This instantly makes your suit look contemporary! Also you can then throw the jacket over jeans and a tee shirt on the weekends.
Well that's about it, for now! Let's get started for the summertime.
