I have to say the more I look into it the more I find this universe fascinating...
I will start from one of the most traditioanl choice - The Morning suit
Photo- Morlotti Studio
WHEN: traditionally used if the celebration has to take place before 12:00.
WAISTCOAT: can be single or double breasted (see picture above) dark or light colour
SHIRT: white traditional shirt or white wing collar shirt
WHO: When you decide to go for this type of outfit, the Groomsmen and the fathers has to wear one too.
Shoes – black leather polished oxford shoes – always wear lace-up shoes
Socks: Black or dark grey silk calf-length socks only
Tie: a plain silk plastron/cravat or a tie. Whatever tie you go for has to be a plain light colour or jacquard.
If you are using a tie pin, wear a white wing collar shirt
Cufflinks and boutonnière (or Handkerchief - not both!)
Hat & Gloves
Pal Zileri - Modern & tighter cut for a Morning suit
HOW TO: never open the jacket – never take it off
The best way to wear the hat is not to wear it: one glove should stay on the hand that holds the other glove and the hat.
Only 2 cm of the shirt should be visibl from the sleeve
LOGISTICS. For a wedding abroad. You can hire the ones for the groomsmen and have your one tailor-made.
MATCH THE BRIDE: ideal choice if the Bride has an important and or a very traditional dress.
