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) with a vintage leather jacket ($375 at Brethren). Accessorize with a solid Brioni tie ($230) and a statement heraldic griffin ring ($215 at Brethren).

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

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 Stag tweed pants ($120) and vest ($85 at Stag) over a color-popping Ted Baker shirt ($110 at Neiman Marcus) and a print Lonesome Traveler bow tie ($48 at<br />
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). 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).
