Two years have passed and while the pandemic is still going on, we're all ready to celebrate warm weather, weddings, and just a bit more normalcy of interacting with people again. You don't ever need an excuse to dress up, but since summer wedding season is approaching, you might have some—or even your own—on your calendar.
The invite might give you a clue on what to wear (semi-formal, cocktail or garden attire, beach chic), but if you're the guest of a wedding, this day isn't about you, so we'd suggest something subtle like a two-buttoned jacket. If you're the groom, then we say go all out and purchase a double-breasted blazer to give off that leading man look. Informal and destination weddings are less rigid about dress codes, but it never hurts to be the guy in a good looking suit. Which is why we've pulled some easygoing unstructured options that you can travel in or dress down a bit.
Suits are nothing new in the fashion realm, especially for formal parties like a wedding, but they're consistently getting updated—whether it's in fabrics, lapels or more modern silhouettes. As always, the fit is key. And right now, the look is tailored but not tight, and slightly relaxed. Whenever you buy a suit off the rack, it will always need modifications, so call your local tailor (you've got a tailor, right?) and ask for your suit pant to kiss the top of your shoes and have them take in your jacket where they see fit (shoulders, chest, back and wrists). Herewith, the best options for any budget to keep you suited all summer.
