Formal Fashion Tips for the Groom


What to Wear for a Formal Affair

Congratulations, you’re getting married! Now that you’ve popped the question, you’re wondering what you’re going to wear.

First principles

Your bride’s gown should be your first consideration. Her dress will set the formality of the day.

What to choose

– It’s best to stick to more conventional tuxedo styles.

– Choose a one-, two-, or three-button, or even double-breasted silhouette.

– Wool tuxes are best.

A tuxedo should be 100 per cent wool (or close to it). Wool is a natural insulating fiber, and breathes while regulating body temperature. The natural elasticity of wool means it will shed some wrinkling and retain a crisp, sharp look throughout the day.

When in doubt, talk to an expert

Don’t hesitate to ask for help. Wardrobe consultants are highly trained and are not only a valuable resource for advice on tuxes themselves, but also bow ties, cummerbunds and all of the other accessories you’ll need to look sharp on your big day.
