Fashion Feature: Mister Right

Grooms in vintage leather, dapper tweed, tailored denim, and luxe tuxedos walk the line between formal and free-spirited.

Cool Charisma

Modern grooms, take note: a suit isn’t a necessity. Emulate Donte’s classy cool by pairing a Faherty canvas jean ($148) and LAD plaid shirt ($118 at STAG Provisions) with a vintage leather jacket ($375 at brethren.com). Accessorize with a solid Brioni tie ($230) and a statement heraldic griffin ring ($215 at brethren.com).

A Study in Tweed

Power couples coordinate without going full matchy-matchy—look to Nick’s and Donte’s variations on tweed. Nick opts for a modern daytime look in tweed pants ($120) and vest ($85 at STAG Provisions) over a color-popping Ted Baker shirt ($110 at Neiman Marcus) and a print Lonesome Traveler bow tie ($48 at ltoutpost.com).

Donte dons the Stag tweed sport coat ($250) with a neutral Ted Baker dress shirt ($110 at Neiman Marcus) and dark Hugo Boss pant ($225 at STAG Provisions). Blend the colors with a Lonesome Traveler mid-tone tie ($62) and blue chambray pocket square ($24 at ltoutpost.com), and a Fine Light Trading turquoise ring ($375 at STAG Provisions).

The colorful mood of a daytime wedding demands prints and patterns. Nick’s unfussy yet dapper look begins with tailored Tellason jeans ($220 at tellason.com) capped off with matching Barque pinstripe vest ($135) and jacket ($270 at STAG Provisions) over his crisp Alex Mill shirt ($160 at STAG Provisions). Finish it off with dressy Wolverine leather boots ($385 at wolverine.com), a Lonesome Traveler floral tie ($62 at ltoutpost.com), hand-hammered Signet ring ($175 at brethren.com), and a pair of cool Komono shades ($120 at STAG Provisions). The perfectly clashed Jack Spade gingham shirt ($148 at STAG Provisions) and patterned Brioni tie ($230 at Neiman Marcus) provide a focal point for Donte’s look, especially when juxtaposed with a neutral STAG Provisions blazer ($348) and jeans ($220 at tellason.com). Slip on a STAG Provisions fedora ($90), tan Helm boots ($485 at brethren.com), and a Brethren horseshoe ring ($175) to round out the ensemble.

Marry the romance of a full formal tuxedo with a burst of contrasting color. Nick’s three-piece peaked-lapel Alton Lane ensemble works for ceremony, red carpet, and everything in between (custom ensembles—including bow tie, shirt, and suit—from $1,200 to $3,000).
