For the bride it’s all about the dress and that perfect fit… but with a bespoke suit, the dapper grooms of Bristol can now feel just as special.
For the perfect fitting vintage-style suit, grooms are going to want to meet the guys from A Suit That Fits. Whether you’re after a Mad Men or Boardwalk Empire look, these talented Style Advisers will design you a suit from a host of different eras and still give it a modern fit.
When you book an appointment with A Suit That Fits Style Advisor, you start by selecting from their hand-picked cloths, and finish off with all the extra sartorial details like the colour of the stitching, the width of the lapel - they can even opt to get a picture printed into the lining - a lovely surprise!
You’ll be expertly measured by Bristol’s local A Suit That Fits tailor, David Minns, for your personal pattern to be drawn; the cloth will be cut, and then hand-stitched into their bespoke garment. 6-8 weeks later your wedding suit will be ready, and you’ll have a fitting appointment with David to finesse the fit.
You may already know what to go for. If not, here are some ideas to get started from the dapper gents at A Suit That Fits:
The lounge suit - the two or three-piece lounge suit is becoming a more popular option for the modern wedding – with a choice of cloths and linings, Bristol’s grooms can really flash their personality in this suit.
The traditional morning suit - some grooms opt for the traditional morning suit, which is just as dapper. However, there are a few extra tips to remember regarding the morning coat: the length of the back of the morning coat (tails) should be just above the back of the knee and the one button should sit comfortably in the middle.
