Wedding Suit ideas for Groom

Suits traditionally is an outfit worn with matching trousers by men for formal or informal occasions. Though nowadays, the definition of suits has changed drastically owing to the term used by both men and women for different kinds of outfits. 

Sticking to the primitive definition, suits for wedding include a long-sleeved shirt, cufflinks, trousers and jacket or a blazer. Suits first originated in Britain, often used for business purposes and were worn as country wear. 


Lounge suits are business suits that are minimalistic in nature and are created in sober colours like black, brown, blue and even grey or olive. 

The black tie which is added to the ensemble is a wardrobe staple for suits. 

The late 18th century gave the current suit designs that are worn by most men today. The comfort of the lounge suit was such that it transformed the entire outfit into something firm yet comfortably even, instead of the jewelled heavy fabrics that was prominent in the past. 

Suits became a way of life for most men in the Victorian age, British era and in the times following post-independence. 

The word suit is derived from the French word ‘suite’ meaning ‘following’. This is because the garments that follow for the suit include the trousers, jacket and waistcoat; that are the integral parts which complete the ensemble. 

The parts of the suit include the cut, fabric and jacket. 

Though there are many variations which occur because of the designs and personal preferences hence, this is just the basic summary. 

CUTS: The cut of the jacket; ready-made jackets, altered sizes, pre-cut shapes. 

-      The convenience of measuring the suit in respect to length, style and horizontal seams.
-      The custom tailor designed suits. 

Where fabric is concerned, suits are generally made of wool or knitwear, which is soft, stretchable and comfortable. Other ways of making suits is using fabrics like flannel, tweed, gabardine and fresco. The finer the fabric, the lighter the feel. 

Although wool has been associated with being a warm and bulky clothing, it is not the same with where suits are concerned because the process of making suits is undoubtedly far more different. 

The main colours in suits worn is black, light grey, dark grey and navy blue with or without patterns. Grey flannel suits are increasingly popular and have been used since the 1930s for non-business contexts as well as business profiles. Other materials that are used to make luxury fabrics are cashmere and wool combination which is regal and soft, comfortable and supremely fine.

Other conservative colours include shaded greys, black and olive. Traditional suits are of sombre colours and used to be pin striped. Outside business, the range of suits widen into vibrant colours and patterns including muted shades of blue, red, green, cream and tan. Windowpane checks are also worn for business. 

Suits are no more limited to the generic tones and occasions. They are so much more than that and suits are categorized and worn specifically for certain occasions such as weddings, informal functions, engagement parties and anniversary celebrations. 

Bold checks, quirky prints that include odd men in different poses, cats, leaves, ace of spades and many more including diamonds splattered in vibrant shades have become popular in the world of informal wear. Men have become much more strong-willed and tend to dominate the fashionistas by displaying their choices and passion on the sleeves of their suits. The business suits aren’t as conservative anymore and bring in unconventional styles each day.
