There's been a request for GROOM STYLE




According to my man Samuel Fehrenbach, this Ami Wool Tuxedo Jacket is all you need.

Oh, and maybe this little bit of advice from Tom Ford...


"Keep your jacket buttoned. Always. It's just really flattering—it will take pounds off you."

  1. What about if you want to put pounds on? Anyone have suit brand recs for a really skinny tall groom? Basically anything that fits him in the shoulders is way too short...

    1. +1 for this question

      Like, 6'5" with a 28" waist style tall/skinny

    2. oh gosh me too. 6'4" 32" waist and leg groom. The closest I've been able to find is this site that does custom suits.

    3. There's also mysuit.com and indochino.com for made-to-measure suits. My guy's tall & skinny, so we went the made-to-measure route.

  3. How about accessories for a more casual groom? I would love to see some cufflinks, neckties, and shoes worthy of the ESB style seal of approval. That jacket is awfully yummy.

  4. WAIT. Does this mean buttoning the entire jacket or is the just one button rule still in effect?

    1. You are right ESB, never button the bottom button.
      A single button isn't a bottom button, it is a button you button.

    2. Well, if he buttons both buttons he'll either look really hip or totally clueless. On wedding day I would say play it safe and stick with one.

    3. Good to know. Just needed to confirm.

  5. Ooh! I would really like to plug Brooklyn Tailors for anyone looking for a suit. My husband had his wedding suit made there, and Daniel was the best, and the suit is fantastic, and I just go weak in the knees every time he wears it. Highly, highly recommended.

  6. "A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.” - Hardy Amies

    In this case, the above translates to: keep it classy & simple (LIKE WITH THAT JACKET, zomg drool).

    And could I start the petition to end grooms in Converse? Nice dress shoes are sexy. And if there's ONE day to at least PRETEND he's an adult, this is it.

    2. yeah, non-bloggers don't know what bensimmons are

      Delete
    3. dude, no one should wear bensimons. they're the toms of france.

      Delete
    4. @lauren I thought they were the CONVERSE of france. c'mon, there's none of that shady charitable giving stuff going on.

    5. all i have to say is: living in Japan, I see so many men in KILLER suits... and then they go and pair them with Crocks. (I mean, only when they are indoors, but still. It's the saddest thing in the world.)

      Delete
    6. @JR REALLY??? that just ruined my night/hope for humanity.

      Delete
    7. @Rachel: Really. We're talking Gucci with black crocks with wooly sock liners.

  7. Are there certain men's shirts made to be worn unbuttoned at the top a la Tom Ford above? Is there a way to veer more Desperado and less Saturday Night Fever? My partner is not a tie-wearing, buttoned-up sort of guy, but his shirts have a tendency to crumple and look sloppy under his jacket.
    Basically, if Disney's Tarzan cartoon character grew up in Central America and then became a biology/computer nerd in CA, where would he shop?

    1. NO.

      He can wear the very very top button (the tight collar one) unbuttoned, and forgo a tie. No further unbuttoning allowed for the sake of preventing El Sloppy.

      Delete
    2. I don't know... If I were as ripped as tarzan you'd have a tough time convincing me not to show it off.

      Tom Ford usually uses his jacket to keep his collar in place. sans jacket go with a button down collar.

    1. a well dressed man will sweat, no getting around it. that's why every guy should carry around a linen handkerchief to mop up the forehead and neck.
