Wedding Suit Trends

Added 4 years ago

Our line-up of wedding suit trends is here to help inspire your wedding suit planning!

Choosing the right wedding suit will give you so much confidence and will ensure you’re the best dressed man in the room!  The key to picking the right wedding suit is to go for contemporary classic, rather than a pure ‘on trend’, with a fantastic fit.  We’ll help guide you through our wedding suit choices to create maximum impact on the biggest day of your life.

Thankfully weddings are starting to feel like they will return to normal early next spring so we urge you to come in to see us as soon as possible to book your wedding suits. We always recommend starting the process at least 9-6 months before your wedding however our availability for 2021 is now limited as we have moved so many weddings from this year.

Read on for our wedding suit trends for 2021.

Traditional Tweeds & Checks


Brown tweed bespoke suit teamed with Jackson check tweed suit from our exclusive hire range

Vintage inspired checked and brown tweed suits will continue to be a key 2021 wedding suit trend and work really well in country barn weddings.  Brown tweed suits, popularised by Peaky Blinders suits, look stylish as a larger windowpane check or more minimalist, houndstooth check. Your choice depends on how bold you want to go but a brown tweed suit will certainly set you apart from your fellow guests. For grooms who are thinking of buying a bespoke suit we can also help create a coordinated look for your groomsmen from our exclusive range of hire wedding suits and waistcoats.

For those planning to use our hire suit services, we have introduced an exciting new range of tweed waistcoats and accessories in line with wedding suit trends for 2021.

New exclusive hire range brown tweed and grey and blue tweed waistcoats

We have an almost endless range of groom and groomsmen’s wedding suits to show you in your first 1 hour wedding suit styling consultation.  We add to our wedding hire suit range every season to keep it fresh and unique.

Blue and neutral beiges are great for creating impact in spring summer weddings.  In your initial 1 hour consultation you can try on as many blue themed groom and groomsmen wedding suits as you like from our bespoke suit and wedding suit hire suit ranges.   We can advise and help you visualise this as either a bespoke suit and/or hire wedding suits. All our stock is held in our Wilmslow store, just outside Manchester, and is available to try on.

Morning Suits – David Beckham Style!

The David Beckham’s morning suit look has put morning dress firmly back on the fashion map! The key to nailing this this look is; a fantastic fit  and a subtle, classic colour palate.  Our Balmoral morning suit  features a close fitting, flattering shape and is available to hire with our exclusive range of double and single breasted waistcoats.

As morning suits are worn less often, most people will opt for a suit hire service. Our navy Balmoral morning suit is as dramatic as David’s dark grey but a little softer on the skin tone.  Made from a lightweight, 100% Italian wool, it’s perfect for warmer days.
