a tailor’s guide to wedding suits

Wedding planning to say the least, can be pretty confronting. For the groom, besides one or two appearances, he is tasked with organizing the wedding suits for himself and the groomsmen.  Most grooms find it rather difficult to navigate the best avenues to sartorial luxury. Think about it, the groom has to think about the style, fabric materials, different fits that aligns the theme of the wedding.

Germaine Joseph believes that the groom and his groomsmen deserve to look their best. This is the very reason why he has taken the opportunity to assess the wedding circuit and assemble fitting fabrics for tailored suits, dinner suits, custom made tuxedos and chic casual suiting for country and summer weddings.

The Black Tie Groom – Formal Wedding

The traditional wedding suit for a classic, elegant and sophisticated wedding theme, is unquestionably the Black Tie – a timeless staple. The tuxedo is a statement-worthy piece that’s reliable and maintains appeal for any formal occasion.

The classic tuxedo is usually tailored in black or away from the norm, midnight blue or navy, detailed with peaked lapels in silk satin or grosgrain, a wing-tipped tux shirt featuring hidden buttons or studs to close and black bow tie with cummerbund. GQ magazine puts it perfectly: “One of the most important rules for black tie… is the one most commonly forgotten: cover your waist. Wearing a cummerbund means that only the shirt is visible as a powerful V at the chest, shooting up towards the shoulders…”

Holland & Sherry Black Tie collection, Caccioppoli Special Events, Scabal Festival Collection, CARNET Evento, Modesto Bertotto Weddings, Dormeuil Celebrations and Ceremonial bunches all offer a super range options for that special occasion. Start with a Super 130s wool as basic, or wool and lurex, jacquard wool, wool and silk, micro-patterns all finished in lustrous midnight blues, charcoal greys and daring blacks.

The CHIC Wedding

These ceremonial occasions are less traditional with the groom’s wedding suit moving away from the tuxedo or dinner suits, and taking a more relaxed approach in selecting dual purpose wedding suits. In recent weddings, you will find more and more grooms and groomsmen leaning towards suit jackets with chinos, showcasing their personal style.

The colour palette is endless – oceans of blue, shades of grey, glen checks, maroon – accessorize with notch, peak and/or shawl lapel jacket. Make is a three-piece with matching or contrasting vest. Impress and wow with a double breasted jacket to showcase your inner confidence as a gentleman.

Get that look by selecting a fabric option from the Modesto Bertotto collection. The Caccioppoli Special Events collection is a versatile range of fabrics comprised of floral jacquards, velvet and elegant and sophisticated patterns and designs. These two collections were specifically curated for special events tailoring a special wedding suit.

Summer and Destination Weddings

Not all wedding ceremonies are officiated in a church, unless if the groom and bride are Christians. Most weddings today are celebrated on the beach, a garden, a resort, even in the backyard as recently witnessed. No matter the setting or theme, couples are moving away from the traditional formal attire and opting for more casual nuptials that warrant a more practical approach to tailored wedding suits.

The wedding season could record temperatures soaring well above average and cotton, linen, cashmere & silk blend and other lightweight natural fibres should be fabric compositions along with other custom details to construct your tailored summer wedding suit. The wedding suit become playful providing a daring opportunity for mix and match and even a chinos and blazer combination. Lose the necktie and bow tie and accessorise with floral lapel pin or pocket square. The white shirt stays as staple but do not hesitate to throw in a coloured option for contrast.

Piacenza has recently released the Panarea cashmere and silk collection with a weight of 190gr, ideal for the summer suit with a softer and lighter cut.  This collection is made for summer suits, jackets and for the men who seeks statement-worthy pieces.
