When we are talking about buying a suit for a man, especially a groom, there are 3 key things to look for:
The Cut: The trending look now for men's suits is broad shoulders, slim waist, and slim trousers. This look dates back to the 1960's look, with a modern day swagger. For 2010 and 2011, a very nice, updated look is adding a bow tie with a stripe shirt and solid collar.
The Style: The 1-button look is what's hot! It allows the guys that are fit to show off all the hard work, but it could be a trend that will not last long. Many men will prefer a suit with more buttons. The more buttons you have on a suit, the taller you look (an old trick). The 2-button look conveys height, slims the waist and fits perfectly within the realm of fashion and classicism. Three buttons conveys a greater sense of height; definitely a look for the more confident amongst us.
Double-breasted suits are also making a comeback. They offer the broad shoulder look, and V-shape design to accent and heighten the perfect masculine shape and well worked body. Sporting this look with a classic bow tie adds the perfect touch.Three piece suits are always a nice look. When purchasing a 3-piece suit, there are some things to remember. With the vest, a lower cut will accentuate a slimmer waist. If the waist is a problem area for some of us, a higher cut may better hide that area.
The Fabric: Wool is the most popular suit fabric. Super wool, 120 to 150 thread counts, would be appropriate for both winter and summer seasons. For fabric patterns, tweed, pinstripes, and rope-stripe cloths are in.
Additionally, for tuxedos, a classic black with notched or peaked lapel will give you a Classic and more slimmer look. Include a satin shawl and satin stripe on the trousers.
