A Suit That Fits Blog
The Number One Suiting Resource
Tag >> wedding theme
Here we have one of my clients; Indy, who is showing off the wedding suit I helped him to design a few months ago.
In the end Indy went for a stylish three piece suit in a navy cloth which worked perfectly with the colour theme for the wedding day. The jacket Indy designed had a classic feel to it with two button fastening at the front, slanted pockets and a notched lapel.
All of these design options are a very formal choice and would look perfect at any wedding; however, we decided to remove the flaps from the pockets to give the suit more of a relaxed feel and to make sure it felt like more of a wedding suit as opposed to something that Indy would wear to the office!. The waistcoat is again a very classic design with five buttons, a notched base and two pockets. The five button placement on the waistcoat allows it to be visible once the jacket is done up (as you can see from the image). This gives a very smart, stylish and simple look. To complement the rest of the garment Indy teamed his new bespoke suit, with a bespoke shirt and gold tie to match the colour theme of the wedding.
The trousers are a very simple design with cross pockets and no back pockets to help hold the shape and keep an overall slimmer look throughout. A suit like Indy's can be found in our professional range starting from 379 and would add an elegant touch to your special day.
Rachel's Wedding Themes: Part 2, Sweet as Pie
In the first installment of my wedding themes blog I looked at reds and pinks. This time we're going to look at a very popular theme at the moment, the sweetie theme.
'Honey, sugar, cup-cake, I'm sure you've called your partner at least one of these terms, love has inherent sweet connotations and it's something you can really have fun with. So this one is fairly straight forward and a really charming theme as you can have lots of fun with the decorations and table gifts. This website is a great place to get all the things you need, they even have proper liquorish root and kola cubes! (Yes I have a sweet tooth) http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/ But for this blog our focus will be the suiting potential.
You don't have to go for a giant splash of colour like these gents above, but if you want a subtle hint why don't you try what I like to call the Cadbury's suit; rich brown with our AE104 Dark Purple lining. It looks really great if you've got a winter wedding, go with a tweed cloth or if you prefer jaffa cakes, the paraquette lining with a cream shirt and a blue tie.
With this theme the devil is in the details. Choose classic suiting shades adding that touch of sugar with love heart cufflinks or candy tones in the contrast details, maybe even powder blue brogues for those with a bold heart.
For the more classic gent go with a light grey silk and wool mix with a subtle purple and blue stripe. Give the detailing a pastel twist with a violet lining, light blue piping and a powder blue melton, keeping everything bold without being brash.
It's not just the suit that can take on the sweetie theme, this is a wedding idea that you can go as far as you like with. It all depends on how crazy you and your bride want to make it! And if all this sweetness is is starting to make your head spin and your teeth ache I recommend a cup of bitter coffee to bring you back down to earth!
