Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
We are seeing definite trends in men's formal wear. The top two priorities on the groom's list; color and fit. Grey (in all shades ) is the forerunner in the color department, as more men steer away from basic black, grey is the perfect neutral to pair with other, bolder colors. Tan has been making an appearance for several seasons now and it the perfect color for destination or a more casual wedding. Navy is hitting the market in a big way this year and I have a feeling that a lot of 2014 grooms will opt for this classic color.
The tuxedo manufactures are now offering slimmer cut coats and pants, which give a more tailored appearance. This is a huge contrast to the more traditional "boxy" looking coat styles that most of us are used to seeing. These slimmer styles are being asked for and greatly appreciated by grooms and groomsmen alike. Also, there are now three pant options to go with most jacket styles; a traditions pleated front pant, the more modern flat front, and even a slim fit. All I am waiting for now is a low rise tux pant, and we should really be able to make the guys happy.
We are excited to be able to offer grooms these trend options, plus all of the traditional styles that we still love too.
