Wedding Suit Shopping Tips

We all want to look fly on our big day, but the truth is that finding the perfect suit can be a man’s worst nightmare. Fortunately, we’ve put together this checklist to help you.


Stick To The Colour Pallet

Nothing is going to send your bride-to-be into a fighting fury quicker than you rocking up at the church in a baby-blue tux. You’re not the prom king from an ’80s teen movie, you’re the luckiest man on earth, so stick to the colour palette of the wedding and keep your future wife happy. Just because she said purple and grey doesn’t mean you have to wear a purple jacket. Asking your best mate for his input will make life much easier.

Cufflinks For The Win

Depending on your personal style, cufflinks are what sets a suit shirt apart from a Sunday shirt. French cuffs with cufflinks is a good option to keep in mind when assembling your outfit for your wedding. The cufflinks should fit the material and colour of the jacket and shirt..

Pocket Square it Up

This should always be the opposite of the dominant colour in the colour palette. For example, if the palette is purple and grey, and your suit is grey then, of course, the square should be purple. Click here for our guide to folding the only pocket square fold you’ll ever need.

Single Breasted. That’s all.

You’re not a hotshot lawyer, and if you are, you’re not meeting with one of your upmarket clients today. Double-breasted is for business deals. Although marriage is sort of a business deal, it’s the only one you need to look handsome for. Go for the single-breasted option. Trust us. We’re always stylish.

Bespoke Or Off The shelf?

Custom-made suits are reserved for the bucket list. But if you do find something you fancy at a boutique or the department store then go for it. It all comes down to how much you want to personalise your look. A master tailor will be able to fit your suit to your body way better than a quick measurement from a shop assistant.
