The Invite Says:
Where’s the suit from?
What kind of wedding can I wear this to?
Any wedding that’s not A) on a beach, B) in a courthouse or C) black-tie exclusive.
Who’s it for?
Men who want a seasonal refresher without a prohibitively expensive price tag. If you’re a plus one, this is a nice snazzy-but-not-garish option.
Is grey a summer color?
Nah. It’s a neutral year-round color. But the right color grey — ahem, two-toned textured grays like you see above — bestows its wearer a more al fresco look.
How do I mix in patterns to my suit?
In a word: balance. If you’re going to wear a shirt with bold stripes, let the other areas of your outfit be a retreat for the eyes.
It looks hot. How do I stay cool?
Pocket squares — which should echo the colors of the rest of your ensemble — are more than just a decorative kick. Use ‘em to pat your brow.
How should I pocket my pocket square?
There really is no “correct” way. Simply fold it four ways and let it peek from the chest, like this.
Anything else I should keep in my pocket?
A few mints. A flask if you want to be a hero.
I should probably shine my shoes, right?
Before and after, yep. With a shine kit. Like this one. Watch this video first.
