How To Find The Best Wedding Suit?


It has often been the case that the groom’s suit has been on the side lines of wedding planning compared to a bride choosing her dress. At SUAVE OWL, we think both future spouses should receive the same level of attention to detail and services. A groom deserves to have his dream suit for the big day, and SUAVE OWL wants to help.



You may be considering what is the first step of finding your perfect groom’s suit? We recommend starting with gathering inspiration.. For grooms who have a general idea of what they want, you may be able to skip this skep. However, if you feel a bit rudderless, inspiration can be the solution. See if you gravitate towards modern or classic styles. Do you prefer the impression of a 3-piece suit? Or would you like to forego a piece for a 2-piece look? Is there a colour or pattern that stands out? A gentleman has a lot of options – seeing what you like can help you narrow that down. For inspiration, we’d recommend Pinterest, magazines, and our blogs as your starting points. Vogue’s article, Everything A Groom Needs To Know About Wedding Suits For Men, may be just the right starting point for you. There’s no better way to find what’s best for you than seeing what’s out there.

After you have an idea of style, colour, and what you gravitate towards, your next step is finding the right fit. It may seem like an obvious point but if your suit does not fit you correctly, you won’t look your best. A suit that’s too large will add bulk to your form. A suit that is too small will constrict you, ruining your sleek silhouette. You want a suit that sits close to your body but doesn’t hug it tightly. For more information about finding the best suit for you, read the SUAVE OWL Ultimate Guide To Men’s Suits.



When you know what you’re looking for, and the size you’re looking for it in, you get to start the exciting process of finding the right statement groom’s suit for you.

Some suits will make a subtler impact, some will be bolder. There are also some statement suits that will play with the actual tailoring, for example with oversized shoulders or flared trousers.

Utilising colour can be an easy way to make your suit impactful. Some grooms opt for a cream or white suit, making them match a traditional bridal outfit. Others will opt for representing the wedding colours of choice, tying their statement suits into the colour theme for the wedding day itself. Bright and bold suits, either patterned or unpatterned, are easy to find in a variety of colours. Colour is a sure-fire way to make a suit standout.



Patterns are another simple way to make a statement. There’s so much variety to choose from. There’s checked, houndstooth, striped, paisley, and more.  Not only does the pattern itself make the outfit impactful, but you can also implement wedding colours or your favourite colours in your groom’s outfit. A strong pattern can also emulate a time period or specific decade – if you’re planning a retro inspired wedding, a pattern can be an effective and stylish way to go.



You can achieve a statement groom’s outfit also by dressing down. For a summer wedding or a destination wedding in a hot location, consider implementing aspects of smart casual into your wedding attire. Relaxing your outfit might sound less like a statement than a full 3-piece suit, but it is all down to execution. Chinos, a SUAVE OWL shirt, accessories, and formal shoes can be a unique, intriguing statement making groom’s outfit. It is all about what feels right for you, if this is the case, certainly explore this idea without any preconceptions about what you need to wear. It is your big day after all!
