Finest Collection For Men’s Beach Wedding Suits
When it comes to weddings, it is all about the bride’s dress and scant respect is paid for men’s wedding suits. As wedding is a pivotal occasion in a man’s life and he would obviously want to look his best as he waits at that altar for his bride. This is reason enough for a man to search for the perfect and most elegant wedding suit and settle for nothing less.
But there is an array of designs, colors and wedding suit styles that makes things utterly confusing for the shopper. All that you have to do is to enter a few shops that are experts in offering wedding suits and ask them to show some of the latest designs that are perfect for wedding.
And, as winter is drawing near, it won’t be long until holiday inspired cards and party invitations will start making their way to your mailbox. Along with these annual holiday cards, you may find yourself invited to at least one winter wedding. Whether this is your first winter wedding or you happen to be a seasoned pro at dressing for formal events, you’ll still glean a few tips from the following advice on men’s suits.
Suits come in a plethora of colours, cuts, styles, and fabrics. First, let’s take a look at colour, and what the colour of the suit represents.
Traditional Men’s Beach Wedding Suits (used for all seasons)
- Black – Traditional black is a very conventional colour that is pretty much safe for any and every occasion. This type of suit can be spiced up with detailing or pinstripes, which ultimately can be changed by the type of shirt and tie worn. This type of suit gives an authoritative popular presence for men who want something that can be very transitional. Wearing a black suit with a nice shirt and no tie also shows of statement that dress can be taken down a notch to business casual for those guys on the go.
- Dark Blue (navy) – Known as power blue, this colour suit took the business man away from the conventional black but still withheld that authoritative look because of the richness of the blue. A stitched pattern, pinstripe, or embossing add a more debonair look.
- Light grey/Dark grey – Grey is generally that type of colour that a lot of men want to don. Grey shows a statement, it shows that ‘yes I am who I am, conventional, but I can be unique.’ I don’t know about most guys but I get more excited over the many shades and variations of grey suits than blue or black. Light greys allow a wide range of light soft colours of shirts and ties to be paired to give an ultimate swag look. Dark grays; stick with basic white or black, or darker shades of vibrant colours to allow the suit to stand out on its own.
Men’s Suits for a Semi-Formal Wedding
The first step to dressing appropriately for any wedding is to determine whether the event is formal or semi-formal.
A semi-formal wedding invitation isn’t as difficult as you may think. The tuxedo is obviously ruled out, so what men’s suits are best?
With this type of affair, there are several options you will have for your wardrobe.
- Men’s business wedding suits
Depending on your current wardrobe, you may not need to shop for the upcoming event. Do you own a black, tailored power suit? Most men do. Although you generally pull this out for business meetings or when giving a presentation, a black suit is perfect for a wedding.
If you are wondering whether a blazer, tweed jacket, or sports jacket are appropriate for a winter wedding, the general answer is no. Stick to dark colored men’s suits. You wouldn’t want to show up feeling underdressed. Semi-formal means black tie or tux are not required. Be respectful of the occasion by looking your best.
Jackets come in two main styles:
- Double breasted jackets– This type of jacket having two rows of buttons that are parallel to another, which overlap and fasten. Believe it or not this has had a huge comeback in fashion. It’s no longer the type of jacket your dad would wear. Now this type of cut has become a hot look for fall and winter coat styles. From mid waist to three quarter length coats.
- Single breasted jackets – Are the most popular and common; where both sides meet and fasten in the middle. These types of jackets go a step from thigh to three quarter length for the fall/winter season. Single breasted comes in a variation of single button, two buttons and three buttons down the center. When buttoning a single breasted jacket, you must keep in mind the number of buttons. Single button; obviously fastening the one button or leave open. For two button jackets; button the top button. For Three button jackets; button the middle button.
- Dress shirt
A wedding is generally not the time to try out that brightly colored shirt or a new style trend. Even at semi-formal occasions, you’ll feel your confident best when you stick to a timeless, classic look. A white button cuff dress shirt and a silk tie with pocket square are perfect.
Men’s Suits for a Formal Wedding
A formal wedding is going to require a little more preparation and style. At a formal wedding, everyone is dressed to the nines. With a little help, you can be too. Here are a few of the choices you may have for a formal celebration.
The ultimate formal attire for men has to be the tuxedo. This piece of clothing exhibits class and sophistication. Choose a tux in a wool blend for your winter weddings; this type of fabric will keep you warm despite the cool weather. Many tuxedos also come with a Teflon coating, to resist stains and keep you looking sharp through the entire event.
- Men’s Wedding Suits
Wedding suits are generally different than everyday suits. For winter weddings, it is best to choose suits in darker colours, such as black, dark grey or navy blue. Wool is ideal for the season.
With all of this in mind hopefully it shed some light on your options when buying a suit. Remember that when going to a retailer be open to the different patterns and styles. After all you don’t just want to look good, you want to walk away feeling confident about your purchase.
