It's the big day, you are going to accompany your daughter to the church, but which outfit will suit you best? Opt for elegance and simplicity, with a beautiful tailor-made suit that also guarantees all its comfort.
First, the color: choose blue if the groom is wearing gray and vice versa. We strongly advise against black, which should be reserved for other less fortunate occasions. Be mindful however with the gray color - choose the right tone if your hair is silver. It is always recommended to seek advice from professionals. Italian and English weavers offer a wide range of fine fabrics in 100% wool. You can opt for a textured fabric or for one with an understated pattern like a discreet houndstooth.
Second, the jacket will be straight with two buttons and one slit in the back to bring more elegance. To change the style of a business jacket, you can choose a high notch collar and pockets without flaps to achieve a more chic look. Putting on a waistcoat is always a good idea. It will make your outfit more ceremonial.
The cut of the pants must be classic, well adapted to your figure.
As for the shirt, it must remain white and classic. You can choose from Thomas Mason or Albini’s cotton in twill or poplin. To bring more elegance, opt for double cuffs, this will allow you to wear magnificent cufflinks, such as those from the English house Tateossian.
You are now ready for a beautiful day full of elegance and style!
Complete your outfit with a beautiful cotton or white satin pocket square and a silk jaquard tie, as proposed by Boivin. As a reminder, your tie must match the color of the suit and not the dress of your companion. If you appreciate vintage accessories, opt for a pair of suspenders from the English brand Albert Thurston. See our accessories.
