I was perusing through style.com Menswear Fall 2012 Collections and found some really nice ideas for suits for the guys getting married this year. There are looks to fit any theme.
This suit will look great on the hubby-to-be that’s getting married on Valentine’s Day or for that matter anytime this winter. The deep maroon color gives this suit a bit more casual feel than the typical black one.
Ah nothing beats a classic Valentino suit, a bit of 007 and this can be worn in transition weather due to the cropped pants.
This whole look screams Spring Wedding, the khaki with a hint of color is good way to tie in the color theme of the wedding without being too obvious.
An all white suit always reminds me of Miami Vice. In this case the cut off blazer with a skinny black tie makes this more elegant than casual. This suit can go from a spring to winter white wedding by adding the right accessories. Who says you can't wear that suit after your wedding?
