Mark's 3 piece custom tailored groom suit
When it comes to men in suits, people always have the feeling that only successful and important people wear suits. So if a guy is wearing a suit, he must have done something right. What woman wouldn’t like to be a part of a man’s success?
No matter what others might say, we have to admit: men look hot in suits. A suit makes them look taller, more fit, and also makes their shoulders look wider. What else is could a man wish for?
The design process
Last Autumn I started doing men’s suits, and I’m so happy my clients love the design and the fabric I choose. So I decided to help my husband to design and make his wedding suits. I don’t like to play things safe, so I told him I was going to be creative with the material color and it might not be what he expected.
I chose a light grey, light purple, and blue lattice texture in cashmere despite most grooms opting for safer colors such as black, white or royal blue. When I first showed him the material his reaction was “hmm are you sure” 🙂 But luckily he always believes in me when come to fashion matters!
After I finished the whole 3 piece suit I started to doubt to my self a little because of the unusual color choice. But you never know how it will look until you put it on! When I saw my husband wear it I’m like YES this is exactly what I want! The color and the cutting fits him so well!
For cutting and style I prefer Italian suits with destructured detailing, high George lines, close fitting, flap-less pocket etc. And the cutting and style of this suit turned out very elegant and clean.
This was a very happy – and at the same time a bit stressful – experience for me because I wasn’t sure I could design and make my husband’s very first custom suit. Now I’m sure I’ll be designing more suits for him in the future.
