This is not usually something i get too involved with, but recently i have noticed a trend away from morning suits and hired items.
This more casual look, shows the mans style and is often more practical.
They can buy a suit they like, that is a bit more unusual than they would normally choose. Have fun accessorising it and then wear it again.
It also means that ushers and bestmen can also just wear a suit they have already got and add a few details to ‘tie’ the look to the event.
It saves the trips to the hirers to all try on suits, then making sure you don’t lose the jacket at the reception and finally delegating the job to someone to return them all.
Ultimately a more relaxed feel, that i think more men feel comfortable with and inevitably feel more confident in.
Why not splash out a little bit more and get a tailor made suit especially for the day.
Many grooms now opt for getting a tailor made suit they can wear again, rather than hiring a morning suit. It allows them to feel comfortable and natural in a style that suits the day and their personality. It also means that any attendants can relax in a suit, rather than the tricky task of everyone getting together to be measured and fitted for tails. It also saves time on the collecting and returning of suits.
Two weeks ago i met Warren and David, the founders of http://www.asuitthatfits.com
They are an inspirational duo, who run a thriving, internet based made to measure suit company. Take a look, for as little as £150 you can have a hand made suit, in a wide variety of fabrics and colours. There are lots of additional options – lining, pockets, fun slashes(sharks fin), interesting lapels etc. If you decide to save on hiring suits for the attendants then you can always splash out a little more on making the groom feel special, and stylish on your big day. And unlike hiring, it is yours to keep!
