Grooms. It’s your moment!

No longer is it all about a dull rented suit, a simple colour choice between grey, navy and black, or having to match your tie to the bridesmaids.

Whether you suit and bout(onniere) up, or wear an open shirt with linens, your wedding day ensemble can be a unique, quirky and stylish statement – not just something plain and formal that looks good next to the big white dress.

I adore the preppy looks, and I’ve quite a soft spot for a groom in colour or tweed with a jaunty pocket square!

Don’t you just love a groom who breaks away from convention?

And don’t forget to look to your favourite suit wearers for inspiration. Ours are Joesph Gordan Levitt for retro, Tinie Tempah for preppy, David Gandy for classic, and Jon Hamm, for, well, his Don Draperness! Do let us know who yours are!
