Tweed Wedding Suit

Today’s grooms take their weddings seriously And whilst they wouldn’t want to outshine the bride, they understand the importance of getting the right look to reflect their personality and embrace the style and theme of the happy occasion. It’s also the ideal opportunity to treat yourself to a great one-off creation for the occasion. The tweed wedding suit plays a big part in most weddings nowadays.

Traditional Scottish heavy weight tweeds, or lighter weight wool Worsted ? The weight of the tweed cloth is a very important consideration in the choice of fabrics for any tweed wedding suit.

Although generally the heavier weight of cloths can tend to have more longevity. Nowadays the location of your wedding may require a more appropriate lightweight cloth. With more and more brides and grooms opting for a wedding abroad to guarantee the sun, no one wants to be wearing a 30oz worsted suit in 35’ heat. But for a UK wedding, we recommend tweeds between 11 and 16oz weight range being perfect for most months of the year.

By far the most popular colours for tweed wedding suits are still the classic plaid. It’s sensible and prudent for grooms to consider the use future use of their  wedding suit. After all, it’s an expensive purchase. Tweed wedding suits that have been made in the more traditional blue and grey shades of cloth are therefore quite easy to fit into daily life without too much trouble.

The cloth pictured here would be a lovely cloth for a tweed wedding suit. And I only use the finest English cloth from the best merchants in their field.

The traditional shaped English style of coat is still the most popular style and understandably so. To be honest, not much looks better than a well-cut suit with a clean chest. A  sharp defined shoulder line with a nicely shaped lapel leading down to the shaping into the waist. And a moderate flair given over the hips.

Plaids are a great choice. It’s very easy to split your trousers from your suit to create an odd jacket for smart/casual wear. Definitely a good way to get a lot of bang for your buck.

Whether you choose my MTM, semi-bespoke or full bespoke option you can rest assured that if you choose a plaid cloth from any of my bunches, I will ensure that all the patterns of the cloth line up and match perfectly.

There’s much more to a suit than just the outside appearance of the cloth.

The inside lining is a perfect way to add your own personal taste into your suit.
