Selecting The Right Men's Formalwear

Men's Formalwear
Have you ever noticed that weddings seem to be all about the bride? There's information available for the wedding dress, shoes, makeup and accessories. But...what about the groom and his users? After all, they need to wear something to the wedding too!

So, what should the groom and his attendants be wearing to a wedding? In most cases, it depends on the time of day that the wedding is to take place. If the wedding is to be a very formal evening affair, than mens formalwear like a tuxedo is required. For a morning or afternoon wedding, the attire of the men will depend more upon a combination of preference and the type of wedding theme you've chosen.

For example, the groom should not be showing up in a formal black tuxedo for a wedding on the beach. A lightweight and lighter color suit would be more appropriate. If you're planning a very casual wedding, then lightweight dress pants, shirt, tie (optional) and blazer would be appropriate as well.

The groom, father-of-the-bride, and groomsmen should all visit our professional men's formalwear shop for guidance and information, MensUSA on the type of attire that is available. Most men don't realize just how many decisions go into choosing a wedding suit or tuxedo. You'll need to choose from single-breasted and double-breasted jackets; collars that are peaked, notched or shawl; cummerbund or vest; bow tie, ascot (these are double-knot ties with ends folded over) or a casual tie.

Also, it's very important that everything coordinates with the attire of the bride and bridesmaids, so make sure you know exactly what they will be wearing and the colors chosen. Unless you plan on attending a lot of formal occasions after the marriage, most men are better off renting their men's formalwear as opposed to buying it. There are a lot of men's stores that carry large selections of wedding attire and they will do alterations on rented suits. However, before you rent anything, make sure you know what comes with the package. Do you need to buy the cummerbund and/or vest? Are the shoes included? What about the tie and shirt? We assure you get a written receipt that states what is and is not included in the rental to avoid any confusion and misunderstandings.

Please make sure your ushers understand that they are not to make their own rental arrangements in another city. You will have no way of knowing if they actually picked the correct suit, color, or accessories until they show up for the wedding, at which point you will have one very unhappy bride - not a good thing! So make sure to get the right mens formalwear for yourself and the ushers.

The groom should look after all the rental arrangements at our store only. Any groomsmen coming from out of town should arrive at least 2 to 3 days before the wedding for final measurements in case there needs to be last minute alterations done. This will ensure that you get the perfect men's formalwear look that you have also desired. And you would secretly thanks MensUSA!
