What suits you?

A suit is not just a suit. There’s much more to it than just that. Be it colour, fit, fabric – there’s so much to look out for. The season and time of your wedding is also a deciding factor. There are a variety of suit types that you can take a look at before making your choice.

  • Morning Suits – Like the name suggests, is for the early birds. The traditional jacket with tails and trouser should ideally be made of the same fabric and flaunt a similar colour.
  • Semi-formal Suits – This is a more relaxed version of the formal, stiff collar suit. The weather should help you take a call on the type of fabric.
  • British Suits – They are well-fitted, single or double breasted, traditional suits, mostly stitched from a heavier fabric.
  • American Suits – Not too far removed from its British counterpart, this one is almost always single breasted and loose fitted.
  • Italian Suits – Compact and fitted, the jackets are shorter and the buttons higher than the regular suits.

Your wedding day deserves well-crafted class and wedding suits must reflect that. Once again the choice of colour is determined by factors like season, time of day, whether it’s an outdoor or indoor event, your personal style and last but definitely not the least, your fiancée’s D-day outfit. A conventional wedding suit pallet revolves around blacks, whites, greys, midnight blues and different shades of these monotones. But there’s no stopping you from breaking the mould with a dash of colour. If it’s a morning do, you can opt for some lighter, pastel hues while an evening event most certainly calls for bolder shades.


The right fit

The right fit can turn out to be quite the myth, unless you’ve gone to the right consultants. If we were to decode the phrase for you, we are referring to a well-fitted suit which complements your body structure and doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb. Now there are three broad categories to the right fit:

  • Classic fit – A comfortable style that allows you leaves room for flexibility, without looking hideously oversize.
  • Slim fit – A narrow cut which tapers well, flattering those who flaunt a slimmer physique. The trousers are mostly straight legged and sit smug below the waist.
  • Modern fit – streamlined to allow more movement than the classic fit, yet not cut close to the body as the slim fit.

Trust us when we say that an impeccably cut suit makes you look and feel a million bucks and this momentous day calls for just that.
