Buyin’ with Ryan: Wedding Suit
The Wedding Suit Guide
By Ryan Paige
I am at the point where I feel like I am attending a wedding almost every other weekend. I actually have one next weekend! There are weddings throughout the year of all different types—destination, Black-Tie, beach, winter, summer, outdoor…and the list goes on. Sometimes, it can be difficult knowing what suit or what shoes to go with for the occasion.
All the suits and accessories I’m using as examples have been selected from Suit Supply, which has a wide range of styles at varying price points. They also carry all of the shirts, ties, shoes, and accessories I need for any occasion. But no matter where you shop, remember this: The most important aspect of the suit is the man (or woman) wearing it and the way it fits. So always make sure it’s tailored to YOUR body, and that you feel good in it.
Here’s my quick and easy guide for looking your best on the big day.
Havana Navy Tuxedo $599+
When you hear formal, think Tuxedo. The Tuxedo is a classic investment piece that you may only wear once or a handful of times throughout the year, but they never drastically change in style. I chose a navy Tuxedo for my selection, because it’s a little cooler than what your dad and his buddies wear. Understated yet refreshing. The classic bow-tie is the perfect James Bond accessory for any color Tux.Read More
Havana Light Blue Plain $499+
Summer or outdoor weddings tend to be a little more casual, meaning you can usually get away with dressing in a bright color and get a little crazier with the accessories, allowing for more personalization. If the wedding is somewhere warmer, look for lighter fabric, like linen or cotton. This light-blue suit made from a cotton and linen blend is a fresh look, perfectly paired with a white shirt and a solid navy tie.Read More
Havana Sand Suit $599+
For those who like to be a little more daring, this linen and cotton suit is perfect for any outdoor or beach wedding. I always like a three-piece suit as I think it’s a little different and highly stylish. You can always lose the vest to look a little less formal. Both of these suits are versatile pieces that can be worn without a shirt and tie.Read More
