A destination wedding gives the men in your party a valid reason to forgo formal attire, but the location and time of day for your event will ultimately influence the groom’s decision of what to wear. A tropical climate usually calls for a lightweight pale suit or an elegant linen jacket, however, a tux is always appropriate for a formal evening event.Here are two looks from Ralph Lauren’s Spring ’10 collection.
If you or your betrothed are a little intimidated by the myriad nuances of men’s wedding fashion, seek counsel from the experts. The arbiter of classic American style, Ralph Lauren, offers the RL Style Guide with head-to-toe advice on dressing with timeless elegance. For instance, did you know that the suit coat sleeve should extend just past the wrist when the arm hangs naturally at the side? If a jacket isn’t even a consideration, look to Tommy Bahama for laid-back luxe. For the detailed man, try one of my favorites, Thomas Pink, the British haberdashery that will custom tailor both shirt and tie for your event. No matter what he decides, your groom will head to the altar looking his best! (photos courtesy of Ralph Lauren)
