DON'T FORGET THE GROOM!
Contributing editor and photographer: Justin Salem Meyer
For her wedding day, the bride will have her hair done ($75), her makeup done ($50), her nails and toenails done ($50), a spray tan ($50), a dress (~$2000), and a veil ($200). Believe me, it all pays off. But then the groom shows up in an ill-fitting $100 rental tux that was measured by a high school student?!? May I suggest a better way.
Rent, buy, borrow, but please get something that fits gentlemen!
— Rent —
There are great options out there for rent but make sure it fits! Try it on when you pick it up.
— Buy & Get it tailored —
Grab something off the rack from a department store and take it to get it tailored.
— Go Custom —
Most fine menswear stores do a made-to-measure program. This is an expensive option but it is obviously the best fit you can get. Keep in mind, this can take a few months to get your suit/tux made.
Don't Forget: There are a few ways to make your suit more personal. ACCESSORIES: Tie bar, pocket square, lapel pin/flower or
CUSTOMIZE IT: Have your name/wedding date embroidered inside the jacket.
