When it comes to wedding suits, there aren't many brands that have been doing it for as long as Moss Bros. Their service is second to none, but did you know their styling and advice for grooms is also top notch? Today we're sharing four trends we think will be big for 2018, along with the items you need from Moss Bros. to create the final look. Whether you're looking to hire or buy, Moss Bros. have got you covered...
BLUE SUITS & BOWTIESA blue suit is such a classic wedding look, perfect for an elegant wedding and hiring them from Moss Bros. ensures that the boys will all be in the same shade. But the addition of a bowtie, rather than a traditional tie or cravat adds a little personality to proceedings. This is also a fun way of bringing in print and texture to the gents' outfits. If you're embracing a 70s vibe with your look (big trend for next year) then opt for this paisley print one for your groom to match your style. If your wedding is a little more rustic with lots of handmade details, then this petrol blue knitted bowtie is perfect. Also, you can never go wrong with polka dots, as this gorgeous navy number shows.
COLOUR POP ACCESSORIESIf your groom wears a suit to work everyday, then adding a waistcoat makes his wedding suit feel more special. It also gives you the freedom to add some colour that he wouldn't necessarily want to wear head to toe. This your opportunity to use checks or tweed - mixing textures is most definitely encouraged by us. For something subtle this speckled check waistcoat is gorgeous and for something bolder, and with a country/heritage twist, this green multicheck waistcoat is perfect. The mix and match service at Moss Bros. means you can hire a waistcoat in a different shade to the jackets and trousers if you fancy making a statement. Moss Bros. also offer a great selection of ties, which can be coordinated with your wedding colours and would make a lovely thank you gift for the groomsmen.
GREY SUIT WITH BROWN BROGUESIf I did a poll of grooms featured on RMW, I think grey would be the most popular colour choice when it comes to wedding suiting. It's understandable, this colour is universally flattering and feels more contemporary than wearing navy or black. Plus it's a great shade for complimenting other tones, like blues and pinks, meaning accessory wise, there are lots of options. When it comes to the shoe however, it seems only a lovely tan brogue will do. My favourites? The Ted Baker Terak brogue or these Hardy Amies ones. And don't forget if you're saving money by hiring suits, rather than purchasing them, there's a little more room in the budget for accessories.
SLIM FIT TROUSERSWe've definitely seen a shift towards slim cut tailoring in every aspect of menswear, from spray on skinny jeans, to muscle fit t-shirts and so if your other half favours this cut in every day life, then you must chose a suit that's slim fitting too. He'll feel much more like himself for the big day. Moss Bros. offer a range of skinny and slim fitting suits in a wide variety of colours and fabrics, both to hire and to buy. They also stock menswear favourites Ted Baker, French Connection and Hardy Amies, so the choice they offer really is unrivalled. Moss Bros. lead the way when it comes to suit hire, as well as offering a fabulous selection of suits and accessories to buy. With over 120 branches across the country (perfect if your wedding party don't all live in the same area) and an online ordering service it couldn't be easier to put together a dapper look for the boys. And the best bit? Order four or more suits for the wedding party and the groom goes free!
