The One Suit You Need for Summer Weddings

For that wedding circled on your summer calendar, consider the khaki suit.

It’s sophisticated but pleasant, a true mark of the savvy warm-weather gentleman.

Don’t own one? Just rent, thanks to a new suiting collection from The Black Tux, created in collaboration with New York-based label Ovadia & Sons.

The collaboration is a first for The Black Tux, who just opened a showroom inside the Tie Bar in Lincoln Park. We’ve endorsed them before for their slim, modern numbers that — best part — don’t at all look like your average rental.

But what gets us on the side of renting the new khaki option is that it solves the classic khaki suit dilemma: the fact that no matter how much sartorial sway it holds, most men don’t own one because it’s not as versatile as a navy, gray or black suit.

So, accessibility without the commitment, basically.

While you’re there, have a gander at the rest of the Ovadia & Sons collab, which also includes a dashing double-breasted take on the classic tuxedo.

They’ll take your measurements. And seeing you’re at the Tie Bar, you can walk out with all the ties and accoutrements you need to complete the look.

Once you’re set up, they ship directly to your door in time for the event. Rush shipping available, too. Once your event’s over, you ship everything back to the Black Tux in the box it arrived in — with labels they provide, to boot.

And just like that, wedding season never looked better.
