Formal Adaptability: A Formal Suit Five Ways - 2


The Wedding Suit

The best thing about a dark, formal suit is that it is a perfect 'background' start for a wedding suit. I'd always advocate buying morning dress if at all manageable, but if not, a charcoal grey two piece is a good alternative.

With a double breasted waistcoat and buttonhole, the ensemble provides the effect of a tailless morning suit, along the lines of an early 20th century 'stroller.' The key is to keep the colours of the shirt, tie and pocket square to similar tones; sticking to blue, silver and white raises the formality of the look.

Pair with black shoes, carry an umbrella and brave a smile.
