Next, we would like to mention the pants, the second and equally important part of the wedding suit.

Pants in a suit are called suit pants or casual pants. As mentioned in the previous post, the wedding suit should be dark, and the pants should of course be the same colour. The form of pants stops at the slim-fit level, don’t “play” the skinny style like some pants are still sold in the shop. The length of the wedding pants is “enough break” or “half break” (the pants lightly touch the shoes, the pants have no folds) is just right, “no break” is not bad, but in my opinion, there should be laziness (folding). the hem is sewn in place), so it looks more elegant, and especially a MUST GO ALL.

It would be best to wear a wedding suit and not wear a belt. But of course, it’s only great when the width of the waistband has to be “bespoke” for you. It is a disaster if the groom on the wedding day takes one hand to lead the bride, the other hand… pulls his pants loose. It is both unsightly, inconvenient and also makes you lose confidence significantly.

Besides, wedding pants should be pleated type, it fits perfectly with the loose bear slim-fit form and makes you look more elegant and luxurious. It is also a highlight on a pair of pants that are not too noticeable.

The facade is done. At the back, the back pocket should be simple, avoiding the box pocket style like some current dress pants. Suit jackets are not meant to be worn with pants with such pockets.

Let’s see, it seems that the two most important parts of the suit have been covered quite well by me. Now let me refer to the third piece, which is OK or not, but should be included in a wedding suit. It’s a vest. That’s right, a vest, not a suit.

A vest, in the original English language, is a waistcoat, or waistcoat. Vietnamese people still confuse the concept of a vest with the suit, and I don’t understand why until now, there are still many people, even many famous suit shops, such a disastrous mistake. We must understand what we wear to be confident and promote the “spirit” of the outfit.

Speaking of waistcoats, it also features lapels, chest pockets, and even darts similar to suit jackets. The difference is that it has no sleeves, and is usually worn under a suit jacket. As for wedding waistcoats, I recommend choosing the same colour as the jacket and using a Shawl lapel with a deep neckline. That item will be perfect to add elegance to your big day.

PART 2: SHIRT

Shirts that go with a suit, especially a luxury suit like a wedding suit, cannot be the same as a regular shirt. First of all, it has to be “bespoke” for you. Usually, the suit makers will also make the shirt, and sometimes they even give you free as a form of promotion – great, right?

This style of shirt is called a dress shirt. But what makes a dress shirt different from a regular shirt? If the regular shirt is divided into 3 sizes S, M, L (small, medium, large), the dress shirt is conventional in terms of collar size and sleeve length. That’s right, those are the two most important parts that show up inside the suit jacket.

The collar of a dress shirt must be designed so that it does not bulge, crease, or lose shape when a tie or bow is tucked inside. The material of the shirt is also richer and more polished than a regular shirt.

OVERALL DRESS SHIRT:

As discussed above, the two most important parts of a dress shirt are the collar and the sleeves. So I will talk about them first.

Using the junction between two collars as a landmark, called the collar point, the collar can be divided into several types, corresponding to the angle formed from the collar point. These can be mentioned as classic, standard, semi-spread, and widespread. Each type has a different characteristic, but to be on the safe side, I recommend choosing a semi-spread. It will match any style of your tie. And if you choose a widespread style, remember to always wear a Windsor tie!

Sleeve length (I’m not talking about short-sleeve shirts here, which I don’t like at all and especially NEVER USE WITH SUIT) needs to be enough to show about 1cm from the inside of the suit jacket, or If you use Cufflinks, you’ll be able to show them off. One thing to keep in mind is that the sleeves for using Cufflinks (called French cuffs) don’t have buttons, so you won’t have many occasions to wear them.

Most of the front bodice has 6 to 7 buttons, which is just right, depending on the length of the shirt, of course. Most modern dress shirts have pockets, but that’s not necessary for my opinion.

The bottom of the shirt should be long enough for you to tuck your shirt into your pants without it coming off when you raise your arms, but it shouldn’t be so long that it makes your pants look hot. Usually, I think it’s OK to be able to hold the lapel when standing straight out.

There are 3 main types of dress shirt materials, including raw fabric, oxford and cotton. I recommend cotton, with a 65% cotton/35% polyester blend for easy hold.

PART 3: ACCESSORIES

First of all, it must be confirmed that even though they are accessories, they are not “extra” at all. On the contrary, it is the way you “play” the accessory that will show the subtle difference between you and other gentlemen. So, what kind of accessories are there for gentlemen wearing suits in general and wedding suits in particular?

Shoes: Dress shoes. The safest is a pair of black oxfords with a black suit. But an elegant monk strap will also be interesting.

Pocket square: Should choose a light colour, the best is white. But if the breast bag is all ready for the wedding flower arrangement, carefully fold the pocket square and send it to someone else to hold it, you don’t need it anymore.

Cufflinks (Clothes): Very luxurious and elegant. It will only be used with bespoke shirts, as noted above. But like I said, that type of shirt you don’t have the opportunity to use much if you’re not an artist or a celebrity.

Tie/bow: Should wear a bow if you use the Shawl lapel vest/waist I recommend. For other types of ticks, you are free to choose between a tie and a bow. But the colour should choose a hot colour (such as burgundy red for example), do not rigidly use dark colours, it will make you look like you are giving… a funeral, not a wedding!

Socks: Textured or plain, it’s up to you. But pay attention to the colour, if the suit is black or dark, so are the socks. Don’t spoil yourself for the elegant style you’re pursuing at your wedding with a pair of colourful patterned socks that don’t go well with an alluring black suit.

Clock: DON’T. It will only make you feel entangled and damage your suit sleeves and shirt. Once you’re with the bride, you don’t need to know the time anymore, right?

Last but not least: Wish you both a hundred years of happiness!
