Top Tips When Picking Your Suit
1. Keep it classic. A Thom Browne short suit might be right for some occasions (first day at Dotheboy's or a formal dance with the girls at St Trinians perhaps) but stick with long trousers. You're a grown up.
2. Wedding photos last a long old time. They're going to be hanging on the wall in your in-laws' sitting room and clogging up family photo albums for decades to come. Do you look good? Do you feel good?
3. Dress for the season. A beach wedding is hot. A church wedding in February is chilly.
4. Morning suit, black tie or classic suit? Morning suit (the clue is in the name) is traditionally for day time. Black tie for an evening event. Regular suit for a more casual event. It's your day. You choose. Maybe consult with the bride/groom and make sure your guests know the dress code too.
5. Your bride/groom might not want to reveal everything about their outfit but it's a good idea to have some sense of the overall vibe. If s/he's wearing flip flops and a sundress, maybe top hat and tails is too much.
6. Much as we love and adore Spencer Tracy this is probably not the time for making do and mending. Keep it sharp and well fitting.
7. Dial down on the colour. A navy or grey suit works. If you must embrace your fun side, a colourful lining or an interesting pocket square signals the laughs.
