Seven looks for bridegrooms

Looks for every guy from hipster to traditionalist.


Even the most style-conscious dandy has to play second fiddle to his bride on the big day. The key is good tailoring with a fit that flatters your shape, so a bespoke suit or one tailored to your figure will work wonders in terms of confidence and good looks. Choose a colour like Prussian blue that works with your skin tone and get advice if you don’t know. Beware of buying off the peg.



Good groom ideas from the dandy with his on-trend bow tie to the tuxedo-clad black-tie traditionalist.
