How to style your wedding suits?
Mitchell Ogilvie Tailoring
When it comes to men’s wedding suits, it’s important for the groom to have a point of difference, to stand out from his groomsman and compliment his bride.
Some suggestion below on how to style your groomsmen party:
Want to wear a tuxedo for your wedding suit? The first step is to decide on a cloth, a traditional wool in black or an ink blue, are both classic options.
To create a subtle point of difference, the groom could wear a shawl lapel perfect for a square, triangle or diamond shape face. Using the same cloth the groomsmen could wear a peak lapel tuxedo, perfect for round, oval and heart shaped faces. Keeping the cloth the same and changing the lapel is a simple way for the groom to stand out on his special day.
Remember accessories are just as important as the wedding suit. Considering bowties? The groomsmen could wear classic black or colours to match the bridesmaids, while the groom could wear ivory or white to match his bride.
Another options is putting the groomsmen in neckties again matching the bridesmaids, and the groom can wear a bow tie.
Don’t forget the pocket square, this is a great accessory to get creative with, a pop of color or a classic silk can help in rounding out the look.
How does your process work?
Mitchell Ogilvie Tailoring
To create our made to measure garments we work from body measurements creating individual patterns, and cutting from that our tailored garments. This process is completely individual per client. We work with fabric mills from all over the world including Holland & Sherry from the UK and Biella, and Loro Piana from Italy, offering some of the finest cloth and construction available on the market. The cloth is cut to measure directly from the mill, as per the individuals needs. This process can take between 2 and 4 weeks depending on the cloth chosen.
For the convenience of our clients we also offer a wide range of apparel in the showroom, including Eaton shirts, Brando shoes, and our in house brand Mitchell Ogilvie Made in Italy, an offer of beautifully designed sports jackets and suits, cut from premium cloth and constructed in Italy.
We offer a wide selection of ties, bowties, cufflinks and pocket squares. All of our in house apparel is designed for further tailoring which is carried out locally offering a quick turn around for last minute events.
