The Finishing Touches

Remember: a navy suit is best when accessoried.

Remember: a navy suit is best when accessorised. Pops of colour and rich leather will bring out the richness and depth of the suit. Plus, if there’s ever a time to go all-in on accessories, it’s your wedding day.

the black tie
WEDDING

We’ve given the black tux wedding a modern update with luxe trims and slick tailored fits. Most guys would opt for black, you’re not most guys. Instead keep it sharp in a burgundy or navy velvet tuxedo jacket. If you did want to keep it black and white, go an all white tuxedo jacket and matching vest. Either way ensure you pair your look with our black tie trousers. Featuring modern tapered cuts that will guarantee your wedding won’t be mistaken for a rental.

If you must wear a black wedding suit, make it this one. The sateen lapel will keep your look sharp, all the way through the last dance, while our black tie trousers

feature modern tapered cuts that will guarantee your wedding tuxedo won’t be mistaken for a rental.

For Men At A Wedding

Maybe you’re a couple that rocks above-average style.
Maybe ordinary mens wedding wear just won’t cut it.
We hear you – now hear this.

Our favourite new special occasion go-to? A pattern tux. But let’s be clear, this isn’t just any pattern. Think intricate, from navy jacquard to black camouflage. We’ve searched high and wide for the world’s most vibrant jacquard, and trust us: you won’t see these anywhere else.

Beach Wedding Attire For Men

Sometimes, it’s too hot for style formalities. Wedding suits for men are a challenge in the hear and sand of a beach setting. We hear you, and we have just the solution.
Politix Wedding

One thing that’s not ideal in the heat? Formal dress. This season we wanted to reintroduce the comfort to the summer wedding making a breathable fawn linen blend a core staple of the season. Keep an understated cool with this colour way, opting for a subdued tor of pocket square to finish off the look.

Even better? You’re free to create this look with separates. A bone blazer or suit jacket paired with chinos, means you can get a perfectly tailored look – without the tailor’s bill.

One thing that’s not ideal in the heat? Formal dress shoes (and socks). For a warm weather wedding, we advocate for the ever-dependable loafer: still a worthy wedding shoe for men. Use a no-show sock to keep things looking sleek – even in the sand.

Having your wedding on the beach?

If you’ve kept things relatively subdued with a white shirt and tonal suit, use your accessories to give the mood a little lift. A single flower pin can do wonders for your style.

THE VINEYARD
wedding

Getting married at a winery?
Way to cut out the middleman, we say.

When your setting is as likely to steal the show as anything else, you’ve got to dress for the occasion. Weddings at a vineyard – or in gardens – call for beautiful, sharp wedding suit separates. And pulling off this look is easier than you might think. Start with a modern mens suit jacket or blazer – with tie or bow-tie – and then pull back the mood with clean, slim tapered chinos.

Yes, casual wedding attire can be done (even for grooms) but don’t go neglecting the details. One wrinkle you might want to include: A topcoat. Because the one day you don’t want to battle the elements is your Big Day.

The Finishing Touches

Getting married at a vineyard calls for your smartest take on smart casual.

Traditional Men's
wedding Suits

“Classic” gets a bad wrap. That’s because “classic” or “traditional” wedding suits for men are often seen as stuffy and out of date. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Politix Wedding

Our modern three-piece suits are cut to be as versatile and flattering as possible. Our sharp checked designs and skinny tailored fits craft a fresh take on the navy wedding suit. Thanks to rich colour and subtle pattern, they’re also the easy way to upgrade a classic mens grey suit to 2019.

There are all sorts of benefits to opting for a three-piece wedding suit: the look won’t age (even if the photos do) and you have the option to remove your jacket while dancing – without looking like a slob.

The Finishing Touches

When you’re going for a classic wedding look, you have two big moves to play – so play them well.

Firstly, your shirt. Keep the classic mood with a modern twist by opting for a slim cut white dress shirt. That way, you don’t have any extra bulk from excess shirt fabric cramping your contemporary wedding style.

cramping your contemporary wedding style. Secondly, your tie and pocket square will determine whether your mens wedding fashion is solid, or a new personal best. Think carefully about the time of year you’re getting married: reach for punchy floral accessories in the spring and summer, and cool, sophisticated tones in the chilly months.

to make men’s wedding suits easy for you and your
marital entourage.

If you’re the independent type, take a moment to look at what the suit you’ve selected, and give it a gentle remix: a different tie for the groomsmen, a complementary vest instead of a jacket and so on.

But if you’d rather leave such details to the professionals (and that’s us), we recommend a complimentary style consultation in any of our stores. We can accommodate any sized party, and work around your schedules. We’ll make sure you and your crew are perfectly suited, top-to-bottom. Even better? The beers are on us.

From Guest-to-Best

Congrats: you’ve been invited to a wedding.

Maybe you’re a dashing plus-one. Maybe you just missed the groomsman cut-off (commiserations, pal). Either way, being the best dressed guest at a wedding is a worthy goal to reach at least once in a life.

Want to catch some eyes late-night on the dance floor? Look no further than your wedding suit. The easiest way to rise above the wedding style masses is to divorce yourself from the standard-issue navy or dark grey suit.

You’ve been watiting for the moment to show-off your style: your formal wedding attire is the time to flex a little.

In summer, reach for bright, light tones and accessories: think florals, crisp whites, and box-fresh leather shoes. Attending a wedding in the cooler months? We think that our cocktail wedding suit collection has a piece (or three) that might catch your eye.
