Stylish Suits and Fashion for the Groom

One common email request I receive is, “Where can my groom find a rad suit?” There are your usually suspects – J Crew, Banana Republic, Macy’s, Men’s Warehouse…but how about something a bit more special and unique? You are going to be wearing a gorgeous dress, so you want to make your honey feel just as stylish on the big day! Here are some of my fave finds for all you stylish grooms out there…

groom fashion from indochino

First up is Indochino above and Bonobos below. Both offer lots of great selections for the groom including suits, pants, jackets and vests.



If you are looking for a custom suit, check out Duchess Clothiers (in Portland) or Thick as Thieves (in Los Angeles). I’ve featured numerous grooms sporting suits from both these places and they always looks so great! The groom above is from this wedding and the groom directly below was photographed by Jessamyn Harris and the couple below from this wedding.



The part of your look where you guys really get to have fun is with your tie! Why not really make a statement with one of these limited-edition ties above from Good Heavens or a fun bow tie like these below from Forage. Forage uses selects their fabric very carefully and each bow tie has a limited run also.

And Forage has generously offered to give this rad bow tie above to one lucky groom out there! Leave a comment with what you or your groom is planning to sport for the wedding day and I’ll pick a random winner this Friday at 1pm PST.

**The contest is now closed** Congrats to our lucky winner Meg! Meg wrote, “My groom will be wearing a vintage suit he is having tailored but a forage bow tie would be the perfect touch to finish his look!”

  1. This bow tie would fit our vintage southern wedding theme and my grooms outfit perfectly!!! and the color of the bow tie just happens to be one of the colors in our wedding!! My groom will be wearing a white button up with a khaki vest and khaki slacks. This orange bow tie would complete his attire!! Thanks for the opportunity to win this great bow tie!! (:

  2. I’m not quite sure exactly what I’ll be wearing yet, but those suits from Indochino are looking likely.

    I probably WON’T be wearing a $78 bow tie though.

  3. Although he’s not 100% decided on color, his intention is buying a tan/wheatish or light grayinsh suit with texture/pattern like the bonobos!!! I do know this, whatever he decides, he’s sure to melt my heart and look super handsome!!

  4. We haven’t picked my fiance’s outfit yet – but this post is totally inspiring me right now! I would love if he wore a gray suit.

  5. Yay! I LOVE all these suits! My fiance is going to be wearing a slate gray suit with a blue & yellow tie (not too skinny, not too fat). Now all he needs to decide on is footwear…

  6. My fiance wants to sport a classy look that’s both traditional and modern. How best to do it…? Traditional: a bow tie. Modern: an ORANGE STRIPED bow tie. Perfecto.

  7. A suit of some sort….but as for the tie…well that one would be perfect!

  8. OK, GWS, my grooming days are over … but I could put this tie to great use during my Best Man stint in France this summer.

  9. Trevor will be wearing a grey tux with custom patent leather converse shoes. We played around with the thought of Sperry boat shoes for the groomsmens. That indochino grey suit is AMAZING!

  10. My fiance is going to sport a burnt orange tie if he doesn’t win this awesome bowtie!

  11. My fiance Eddie will be wearing a blue seersucker suit with a golden yellow tie.. UNLESS he wins this sweet little number:)

  12. We decided last week that he will be wearing a suit (not a tux) with a bowtie, so this would be a perfect addition!

  13. My fiance is still deciding on either a light gray suit or a deeper navy color.

  14. Pretty sure I just found my husband one of his 30th birthday presents in those Forage bow ties….LOVE them!

  15. I’m sure Rocky hasn’t thought about it at all, and I’m not sure what he’ll say when I politely suggest light green linen pants. Then I’ll get him to think of how to incorporate navy and he’ll think it was all his idea. I’m sure of one thing though, he looks hot in a bow tie!

  16. mmm… darlin’ will be sporting a navy blue suit–with vest–and a bow tie (perhaps this one?). He will be the best looking groom ever! and he would absolutely love this bow tie!

  17. I’m hoping to get him in a gray suit… our colors are orange & blue, so this bow tie would be perfect!

  18. Our colors are chocolate and orange, i am planning on wearing a wheat colored suit. Still undecided if i am going with a skinny tie or a bow tie. This could help me make up my mind.

  19. Oh man, my fella would look fantastic in some of those suits. He’s been wanting to wear a bowtie, just haven’t looked into which style or color. But, I’m lovin’ that stripey color.

  20. This is perfect! We went with Dutchess in Portland!

  21. My man is wearing a black hugo boss suit and a green bow tie for the ceremony and a red skinny tie for the reception.

  22. I’ll be wearing a custom morning suit to the wedding, and then changing into something more casual for the reception, which will be held on the beach.

    Probably a light tan linen suit, and hopefully that bow tie! I am one of the only people at my job to wear one.

  23. This august I’ll be rocking a Dark gray J-Crew suit, white suspenders, vintage leather shoes and a rockin’ bow tie for sure!

  24. I have these bow ties bookmarked and we have been waiting to solidify our color scheme before ordering his!

    He is likely wearing khaki pants with a patterned shirt and a a forage bow tie while I will be wearing a JCrew Taryn Gown.

    Love this so much!

  25. Very Nice tuxedos and ties. I really like it.
