Modline’s 7 Tips for Choosing A Groom Wedding Attire

Your sense in style as a groom might not be one of the many reasons why your other half chose you, but that should never be an excuse for you not to stress on choosing the best wedding suit on your special day. Here at Modlines, we shall teach you some crucial tips on your wedding.

Why Ever Bother? Why Vintage Wedding Suits?

You have to remember that the wedding isn’t just a ceremony. We know that you feel it is special for both of you. But even if you are a guy and you don’t have the natural inclination to spend much time on the men’s suits that you wear, we still think that you should still do your best to be as intricate as possible on this occasion. Why? Because your wedding day is the time that you exchange your vow with your other half- a symbolic show and culmination of commitment that both of you have shared for the past years. It is the start of a much deeper relationship and you ought to give much respect not just to your wife but to her parents, friends and all other people who have invested their emotion and trust towards you. It isn’t just all about respecting the event- it is all about feeling the heavy responsibility that you are going to go through and with it comes an opportunity for you to show perhaps how eager you are to give your all in that responsibility and commitment.

And after all, your children and grandchildren would later see your wedding photos- wouldn’t you want to really make them feel how committed you were by that moment by going all your way just to choose a special wedding suit?

But when it comes to commitments and show of the degree of responsibility, nothing beats vintage wedding suits. Vintage suits symbolize deep respect and formality as our history suggests. It represents how your commitment transcends beyond time. Vintage suits carry with them a message that your commitment is just like the style of your suit- something that never fades and out of context even if decades of changes pass by both of you.

It’s All about the Measurements

The key towards achieving that is for you to suit up with something that fits well with your body. If you are tall and thin then you wouldn’t have a problem with this since almost all men’s suits are well made for this frame. If you are however a bit bulkier, then a double-breasted one will add bulk to your suit. You also need to choose dark colored suits that will slim you down. If you are a bit short, then choose a three-button jacket or something that has a low-button in order to provide the illusion of you being a bit taller.

I addition, here are some of the things that you also have to look for in your 3-piece suit:

  • Your jacket sleeve should be at your wrist bone. And a quarter inch to even half of an inch should be exposed in the shirt cuff right below the sleeve.
  • The bottom of the jacket should never completely cover the butt.
  • Your collar should not have any gaps or bulges plus you should feel comfortable with it and not too tight.
  • You pants should not be too long nor too short. You can test this out by constantly sitting and then standing. If you feel that it is too tight if you sit, then you better choose another one.

STYLE VERSATILITY IN 3 PIECE SUITS

mens 3 piece suit infographThe 3 piece suit is super versatile and gives several suit styles in one.  Of course, all three pieces can be worn together which is the traditional look.  Take off the jacket for a less dressed up look, and wear just the vest and pants which have become very popular with both wedding groomsmen as well as the groom.

Lose the vest and wear the jacket and pants for a standard two piece suit.  If we change out the pants for another pair of dress pants or even jeans for a more casual look.

Because of it’s versatility, this is a powerful staple for any man’s closet, and especially if you don’t wear suits a lot.  It can give a lot of bang for the price of one suit.

Had to link to this new Wedding Party App!

I wanted to write about suit trends in this post, then couldn’t stop thinking about this beautiful blog post over at a new site I just found– WeddingPartyApp.com.  I don’t work for them, though it sounds like it, its just a really cool site.  I wonder what the app is like.  Let me know if you’ve used it, would love to know the features.

HFall 2014 Wedding Party Suitere is their original blog post about 2014 wedding suit trends, includes a few lines about going into fall and winter.  But basically, to sum it up, fall and winter is often full of middle gray to dark gray colors, and I have to add, brown looks awesome for an October to November wedding.  <—-There are so many great shades of brown to choose from, one of my favorites our company had made into a corduroy suit for the upcoming fall/winter wedding season.
