Top tips for choosing a suit for a winter wedding

Top tips for choosing a suit for a winter wedding Q – I’m looking for a stylish suit to wear at my upcoming wedding. I’d love something that ties in with our winter theme without being over the top. Do you have any suggestions?

"One of the most critical questions we ask grooms-to-be is, what do you plan to do with the suit after the big day? Often they are planning to wear it again to other weddings, so it’s worth factoring this into your fabric choices. A mid- weight around 12oz will do you for most months of the year. The key to using it in the winter is texture. Hopsack and glencheck are my personal favourites and look awesome.

"If this isn’t crucial, then you can afford to be heavier on the cloth weight, which will drape even better too! For a relaxed, barn style wedding mid-weight tweeds are a great option. The material makes up wonderfully, has bucket loads of texture and depth and photographs like a dream. Look for herringbone and twill.

"If you’re having a formal affair, then a luxurious flannel is your friend. The slightly mottled texture gives a warm, deep feel, whilst screaming sartorial elegance.

"Most tweeds and flannel colours mirror the colder seasons too. Burnt orange, mocha brown and forest green alongside the ever classic navy and mid greys.

"Lastly, note that heavier cloth works well with a softer made suit. Think less padding and more Italian style. Let the quality of the cloth do the work, and the softness of the suit do the comfort."
