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.

These beautiful girls (and boys) are our go to fashion show models. Several of them I have known since they were in high school and they have been doing our fashion show’s ever since. They have it down to a science on how to quickly get in and out of a wedding dress (not the boys). Miss Jordan also helps out at the shop during busy tux weeks; she can get those boys to listen much better than I can.

She is a certified wedding planner (no, she does not plan weddings), and everything she knows about bridal and formal wear has come from, gut instinct, trial and error, and watching LOTS of What Not to Wear.
