An advantage of kitting your Groom and Groomsmen out in wedding suits other than black tie is they can reuse the suit many times. The classic three-piece navy blue suit can be used with or without the vest to cater for numerous social and work situations.
InStitchu carries a great range of navy and navy blue suiting fabrics in the Super 100's in 100% Wool's and Wool blends. Our personal favorites are fabric 16 and fabric 17, a Super 100's 100% Wool and a Super 100's Wool & Cashmere blend respectively. Fabric 17 is a slightly bluer navy than fabric 16.
The three-piece suit refers to a suit jacket, pants and a vest. The benefit of making your navy suit a three-piece is the versatility the vest gives the garment in adjusting the formality. The addition of a vest makes a navy blue work suit ready for a wedding.
You can experiment with double-breasted or single-breasted suit jackets; traditionally a double-breasted suit jacket would have peak lapels. A single-breasted suit with peak lapels adds a level of formality appropriate to a wedding over the more common notch lapel.
Keep the shoulders 'Normal' (slightly padded) which cuts a better shoulder figure for the Groom and Groomsmen.
InStitchu offers design details from pocket style, belt loops or side adjustable tabs and cuffed or non-cuffed trouser bottoms. 'Normal' pockets, no pleats, side tabs and non-cuffed trouser bottoms will provide a modern slim pants look.
For a modern look with the vest, opt for pockets (match style to the suit jacket pockets) and choose a five-button configuration. This configuration creates a slightly higher V cut on your chest, giving a great visual set of lines when combined with your tie and lapels.
