Mr Black’s Wedding

Tailor’s Notes

Mr Black chose this classic three piece grey flannel suit as his wedding outfit and it really, really ‘suits you Sir’.

There is nothing like a stylish grey suit to make a young gentleman look the debonair groom. These subtle shades, contrasting with his tie and buttonhole give the air of effortless style – not over the top, but making the point that he has really thought about this memorable moment in his life. Mr Black is a very stylish young man and the grey tones bring out his exquisite elegance. The five buttoned waistcoat sits nicely on top of the trousers and some wedding jackets are just MEANT to be left undone.

The Construction
Made with a canvass, the suits are British made and cut. As much of the suit as possible is hand tailored. As with every suit we make, unless you choose our Express service, the suit will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

Spring into Summer – Summer Suits

Summer Suit fabrics to keep you cool:  lightweight wools, silks, mohair, cottons and linens. Irish linen is considered the best and the least likely to crease. All offer the opportunity to have a very sharply cut bespoke suit that will keep you cool, and smart, in the summer.

Bespoke Brown Herringbone Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
A wedding suit should leave no one in any doubt as to whether you have come straight from the office. A peak lapel is snazzier than a notch and a one-button or two-button jacket is less corporate than three. If it’s a daytime wedding and morning dress is not on the agenda then navy and grey are, as ever, the safest and most versatile suit colours. In both cases, opt for a shade less dark than you would for work. It’s a party, right? Lighten up. Maybe even choose brown!
