The Wedding Suit Guide
What to wear for your wedding
As the days get longer and temperatures edge upwards, so those wedding invites start to arrive. Whether it’s your big day or whether you want to cut a dash at someone else’s, Scabal specialises in the special. With deft craftsmanship, unique personalisation and a renowned history, sartorial satisfaction can be guaranteed.
Choices come in the form of a classic shawl collar or a peak-lapelled jacket; single or double-breasted; a wing-collared shirt or a turndown collar version with a piqué-detailed front (white is a must); butterfly or batwing bowtie… Inject some personality with colour – all midnight blue is a sophisticated twist, a white jacket never fails to be elegant, red is bright and bold – or with texture, patterning and fabric choice – all velvet, say, or something shot through with satin detailing.
The Three-Piece Suit
Perhaps the pinnacle of men’s tailoring is a harmonious combination of jacket, trouser and waistcoat. At its simplest and sharpest, all three parts are perfectly matched in colour, texture and cut – a gentleman’s most sophisticated staple. A dose of personality can be added by choosing more unexpected fabrics, or by mixing and matching the colour and texture of the waistcoat. At its core, though, is a versatility and sartorial sharpness that is unmatched
The Morning Suit
The tailed morning suit has long been a wedding-wear staple. It’s an elegant take on a three-piece construction, usually comprising dark jacket with a slim fit, a neutral-hued waistcoat over a white turned-down-collar shirt and colour-complementary tie with some subtly detailed pleated grey trousers. Complete the look with well-polished black shoes, and show a flash of colour with a well-chosen handkerchief in the breast pocket.
