The Debonair Groom

Feb 01, 2019

When contemplating on which type of suit to select, the aim really, is to complement the bride’s wedding gown. A dark suit for the day, normally in black or dark grey is a lasting favourite of Malaysian men. Paired with a crisp shirt either in white or ivory to complement the bride, as well as a coloured tie, the look is both classic and gentlemanly. Those who are fashion-savvy and who have the flair and verve even go as far as dressing in white. It makes a bold statement but not everyone can carry-off such a look. Of course the piece de resistance in every man’s wardrobe would have to be the tuxedo. Suave, debonair and sophisticated – that’s a man in a tux. A pleated tuxedo shirt, a satin bow-tie and cufflinks add to the formality of this look.

A few tips :

  • Scrutinise the latest trends and fabrics by looking through men’s fashion magazines and surfing the Internet.
  • Strongly regard word-of-mouth recommendations.
  • There is sufficient variety at various price points, so there is no reason to not look good. Evaluate the option of an off-the-rack purchase or custom-made.
  • Trendy or classic? An ‘over-the-top suit’ or one that can be used in the future for less formal occasions?
  • Good quality fabric is a good investment as the suit will fall better.
  • Your suit ought to reflect the formality and style of your wedding.
