The Navy Blue Three Piece Wedding Suit

The Navy Blue Three Piece Wedding Suit

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.

The Three Piece Cut

The Suit Jacket

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.

The Suit Pants

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.

The Vest

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.

Above are a few of the many design options InStitchu offers, call our Sydney showroom (0401 488 433) or visit our online suit builder and have a go at building your own perfect men's wedding suit.
