Long gone are the days when a groom slips on a black tux for his wedding as his only outfit choice. Today’s groom now has more options than ever before to show off his own personal style to say “I do”. Fall Weddings are in full swing. The air is crisp and the leaves are changing into vibrant shades of red, orange and gold. These warm tones allow for a groom and his party to really pop against the palette of the season with a cool blue suit. To accent the look, the groom can opt for a brown shoe instead of the standard black dress shoe or add in another pop of color using the pocket square to take his look from drab to fab! Here at black tie BY LORI, the Ike Behar “Blake” is a popular choice amongst our customers. Featuring a single button front, black satin peak lapels, black satin besom pockets, side vents, slim fit construction, and fashioned from luxuriously soft navy Super 120’s Wool, this suit provides the formality that appeals to a wedding but takes it a step out of the box.
Another popular choice at our store is the Stephen Geoffrey “Slate Blue Aspen”. Tailored in 100% worsted wool, featuring a slim fit style and contemporary notched lapels edged in satin, this tuxedo is a stylish and handsome choice for any event and adds a unique touch of luxury to this fashion- forward style. Pair with matching flat front or modern slim fit pants and a matching fullback vest for a dapper 3-piece tuxedo look. The rising trend in men choosing blue as their wedding color allows them to be bold yet casual.But don’t let the term, “casual”, scare you! It doesn’t make the wedding any less formal. Unless you are having a black tie wedding, everything can be considered casual. And don’t worry, no one will show up to your special day in jeans…we hope! You can also decide on a darker shade of blue to convey a more serious and traditional atmosphere for your event if you prefer as this color lends itself to more color combinations and accessory choices. Now is the time gentlemen. Even if this is the only choice you make in the wedding planning process, choose a suit that compliments your personal style. Black tie BY LORI is here to style the best version of you for your big day!
