Have your man spring into summer with an eclectic dash of pure panache! We love these ideas for a serious dose of good grooming…
Cutting a distinctly dashing look for your gorgeous guy couldn’t be easier thanks to New & Lingwood’s Product and Marketing Director, Simon Maloney’s excellent grooming tips for gentlemen this spring and summer…
An evening wedding calls for black tie. Opt for a classic black dinner jacket or a dark suit for a sophisticated and elegant look. Don’t forget a pocket square and tie if you’re wearing a suit, they are a great way to add a personal touch or burst of colour to your look.
True gentleman’s shoes should be polished to a mirror finish… unless, of course, you’re wearing New & Lingwood’s handmade velvet evening slippers…
Stand out from the crowd and be brave this wedding season. For something less conventional experiment with different colours and textures to showcase your personal flair and style – but always make sure that the use of different scales of patterns complement one another rather than fight. And never wear more than three patterns together.
Dress Code Dilemma
When the invitation doesn’t specify a dress code, always opt for a sharp yet understated look. The cocktail dress-code gives gentleman freedom to add personality, push the boundaries, and encapsulate everything they admire in fashion while keeping it tasteful.
Keep it Traditional
Traditional weddings call for classic dressing and attention to detail. Guests should opt for a timeless three-piece day suit in navy or grey whilst the groom should be dressed in a more formal black tails, perhaps with grey trousers and a light waistcoat – pale blue or cream works well.
Summer Days and Warmer Climes
In warmer season or climates, you need to choose lighter fabrics for comfort. After all, you don’t want to look like you’re overheated and on the verge of collapse in the photos! Choose high-twist, tropical wools or linens, which are specifically made to keep you cool. Be it classic navy or cooler shades, a crisp shirt in white, pale blue, ivory or pink will set it off to perfection. You can skip the tie and add a flourish of colour with an exquisitely designed silk pocket square.
And there you have it gentlemen: consider yourselves well groomed! Our thanks to New & Lingwood for these top tips. See more of their gorgeous suits at newandlingwood.com
