Once in a Blue Mood

Whether it’s light, true blue or a dark navy, this hue is all for you. Making a comeback as the most searched color, these shades have been reinvented. Long gone are your dad’s powder blue and ruffled shirt. The must have of the season for an evening wedding is a subdued sophisticated dark blue, like our Midnight Blue Fantasy or Harmony Ink Blue tuxedo. Top on trend is the Cornflower Blue Tuxedo for a hotter climate and daytime wedding. The ultimate in classic is our Brunswick – Cobalt Blue Tuxedo which blends fresh color with traditional style in the most striking way.

Grey for Days​

Grey is the most versatile of tuxedo and suit colors. Adjusting the shade only shifts the colors you can pair with it as well as how you accessorize. This hue is your answer for any outdoor, indoor or destination wedding. Grey  can be modern, classic, compelling and eye-catching. Our Jamison – Iron Grey has features like a two-button front closure, flap pockets, and a notch lapel putting all eyes on you at your wedding or  special occasion. The light grey of our Energy – Grey Tuxedo feels like a cool breeze, swooping in to shake things up. Need an in between choice? Check out our Lorenzo – Gunmetal Gray Suit for the event that needs a formal feel, but not a tuxedo dress code. Keep in mind the darker the shade the better for evening and the lighter the hue is better suited for daytime.

Dashing in Black

Nothing says dapper like a classic black tux. But truth be known, it all comes down to timing so what hours your event begins and ends is a consideration. If it goes into the evening then you can feel confident in throwing it back to the G-O-A-T of tuxedo colors. Our Black Harmony Tuxedo has a smooth and sweeping vibe with a vintage flair. Or maybe you’re making it a true black tie affair? Then our Black – Full Dress with Tails is a showstopper and will command the mood in the room.

Earthy Tan

Are you having a daytime garden ceremony or a destination wedding? Perhaps you are going for a bohemian look or a spring/summer wedding. Tan and brown are both down-to-earth colors that give you a clean and casual feel. Try our Liam British Tan Suit, perfect for any daytime event whether it’s a fall garden party or a large outdoor party. With this simple shade, you can add accessories that pop and allow you and your crew to mix it up on the big day. If you are feeling a little bolder, try on our Lorenzo – Cinnamon Suit.

Boom Goes Burgundy

Picture this: you in burgundy with your crew in black or grey. Bam! Or go the distance team groom in full burgundy. We are talking bold, yet rich and luxurious. Did we mention that it’s full on trend-worthy yet still manages to feel timeless? We’ve seen grooms experimenting more with pinks and reds recently, but burgundy is easier to style with other elements of your day. The Burgundy Camden by Ike Behar is a dashing look that is marvelous for any black-tie event. Remember, there is no better day to stand out from a crowd.
