With a little word of advice interwoven in this tapestry of suggested menswear stores throughout London, we begin with a few bare basics before we guide you to those stores where it all begins.
Before the Groom even envisages what he will wear at his own wedding, his fiancée has already bombarded him with several not so subtle tugs on his sleeve as he is forced to scroll through Pinterest boards laden with wedding dresses. He is supremely aware he needs a suit for this auspicious occasion.
He’s a classic jeans and t-shirt man who is now facing a decision that could seriously interrupt the harmony of his future dreams. He has just spent the best part of the year listening to his bride-to-be debate about what wedding dress to buy.
Then she spends not even half an hour by his side rolling her eyes skyward while he desperately tries to decide whether the double-breasted jacket is a better fit than the single and should there be a buttonhole in the lapel? And what about the shoes. Should they be black or … He desperately wants to look more like Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and less like Ben Stiller in Zoolander.
In order to avoid such catastrophes such as the dreaded eye rolling bride-to-be, we’ve put together a list of quality stores throughout London offering more positive notes on decision making and less desperation whilst attempting to hold it all together. Bearing in mind, of course, it is a joint decision. One must not forget colour schemes, bridesmaids dresses, shoes and the like.
But it’s not just the bride who will be showcased on your day to remember. There will be eyes roving over your stunning wedding suit and if you’re just beginning to search for the perfect one, here’s a list of our top chosen menswear stores for your perusal.
