The Groomsman Corner
The Groom - Not only does the groom need to pick out his suit, he needs to make sure it fits the overall style of the wedding. "The most important thing for a couple to consider when planning their formal attire is the style and feel of the wedding," says Christina Steinbrenner, director of tuxedo marketing at Jos. A. Bank Clothiers. "For a traditional, more formal event, a classic tuxedo with a notch, shawl, or peak lapel is ideal. Slim-fit silhouettes have been most popular lately. For a less traditional option, shades of gray are hugely popular. Destination or beach weddings call for a lighter gray, tan, or even a jacket-less tuxedo."
He'll also need to put the finishing touches on his look with a perfectly folded pocket square or fun socks for an extra pop of color, Steinbrenner says. Accessories make all the difference!
