Wedding Suits For Men – What not to Wear

Wedding vests for men 2013

Oh dear. I can’t comprehend that in 2013 men are still wearing dated vests and suits that don’t fit. So why are men hiring their wedding suits? Why are we seeing the  same white vest worn at different weddings? Why are men not spending money and time on the most important day? More so, why are their wives to be, allowing it? Marriage is such an awesome concept. For better or worse or in sickness and in health. Gentleman, please think about your wedding suit. She and you are worth it.

The Hire Suit

The groom to be  figures out it’s not a good investment, to pay £300_£500 for a suit he gets to keep and that was tailored to fit him. But he is happier to pay £150 for an ill-fitting suit from rentals that will look big on him. The main issue when  hiring a suit is it just simply limits you. They give you a few samples to try on. They rarely fit you properly. In most cases the suit is too big and very unattractive. A great tip is when you try your suit on. Get a mate to take a photo of you, put it on your Facebook and let everyone get an idea of how you look. Ask does this suit represent my personality? Is it me?  Does this suit fit properly or is it too big? Then go away and try some more suits on. These days there are many affordable suits out there. Don’t look at your wedding day as the only time to dress up. Suits are becoming well worn on many occasions. You have to understand one thing. You must  give yourself some suit time. Yes it may take more than one day. Just have fun with it and your mates.

The Hired Vest

The white hired vest, I can only describe it as your grand mother’s curtains been recycled. It’s been around as long as she has. I don’t know why any man would hire a vest. Topman, Desigual,  ZARA, Paul Smith, Ted Baker or any department store have many cool high end vests. You can update your wedding image and look great.

Nice colour suit. Ditch the vest and buy an update version

These vests linger on. Hired suits won’t fit. Look at the length of their trousers. Plus they are very short and the long jacket is not right for their body type.

Suit that is too big -not a good look

The suit is far too big and the wrong design for his body shape.

White vest not good if you have big belly

Yep there is the vest again.  White is not good for big tummy’s.

I’ve seen this vest before at another wedding. The guy in the middle looks cool but his vest lets him down.

Burn the vest. Get your own one.

    The worst thing I remember in the context of wedding suits seems to be quite common here in Germany: a man wants to by a suit for his wedding and the clerk gives him a dark grey or navy or black suit adding the comment ” looks nice and can afterward been worn for business.”

    Sorry, in my opinion a wedding should have a much higher importance than daily work (i think it’s the same for women who don’t by a dress considering wearing it afterwards).

    Great article, but Ill be damned if I post a picture and ask the social circle if this “fits” me. That suggestion is why men are having a hard time in the public arena. Be your own person, dress well and wear it if you like it. Do not let the number of “likes” determine what you wear.

    I think the reason most men hire their suits these days is that men and their best man/entourage quite often like the idea of matching suits, maybe with a subtle difference for the groom. Whilst the groom-to-be spending £300-£500 on a suit for their wedding is a perfectly reasonable thing to do I think asking your friends to do the same is unreasonable. By taking the hired option, where the company can get multiple of the same suit in different sizes, it means they can get that look for a lower cost.
