If you are attending a wedding as a best man, you must present yourself well. The rule is not to dethrone the groom with your outfit. So, let's see what your options are.
You're there to set the mood, so put some fun in your outfit. Opt for a colored jacket from the "iParty" collection from Cerruti with opaque pants or a dark fabric but slightly glittering if you dare ... everything is allowed if well harmonized. You can try a fabric with a pattern, such as a delicate window pane check or a tone-on-tone Prince of Wales check.
If there are several best men surrounding the bridegroom, consider wearing the same uniform. This is especially nice for bohemian weddings. In this case, your outfits can be made up of mismatched pieces as long as the jackets and pants are made with the same fabric. Another suggestion is to have suits made out of the same fabric, and leave the waistcoats in different colors to add originality.
Regarding the shirt, you have more freedom, but stay around the white or ivory colors. The fabric can have a few patterns: small herringbone, pinstripe, honeycomb – remember to always ask your tailor for advice.
Don't be afraid of colors when it comes to your accessories. The younger you are, the bolder the colors you can wear. A brightly colored tie from the Paolo Albizatti spring-summer collection or a Hemley bow tie will enhance your outfit. Be careful not to associate the color of your accessories with the color of your partner's dress, this is no longer in fashion. Check our accessories.
