The right fit for the right man
Updated: Sep 16
Whether renting or buying wedding suits for grooms, the fit must be right to remain sharp. Aside from choosing the right color, fabric, detailing and stitching, you still need a wedding suit style that complements your physique. Check out these tips!
If the groom is short or stocky, avoid excess fabric, long jackets, high button stances and pants with lots of break. Become friends with the pocket square and show some cuff.
Your suit shoulders should not slouch. Make sure they keep you walking tall and fit.
If you have a choice between two or three buttons, go for two. Three will always make you look more boxy – of course, unless that’s what you are going for.
The sleeves should end at the height of your wrists.
Have your tailor narrow the suit to your figure and get rid of excess fabric.
Don’t go lapel crazy. maybe 2 inches at its widest point.
All off the suits above are part of my "Grooms Attire" board on my Pinterest site. If you'd like to check out more, click here.
