This week, our theme is wedding season. If you are in your mid to late 20's, chances are you have been to at least one so far this year, and now it's time to start thinking about what you are going to wear to the other 3-7 you have this year. To kick things off, let's go with the standard wedding attire canvas, the suit. Light gray is a safe color to go to, as many grooms these days are going with medium gray, navy blue, or black. This light gray is also a great for summer formal events, and can be worn to work, so it's not just a wedding party suit. This suit from Indochino is made to measure, meaning you give them your measurements, and they make a suit just for you. It shouldn't need tailoring, and if it does, you can stop into one of their showrooms to get it taken care of for free. In terms of quality, I personally have 3 Indochino suits, 2 of which are 5 years old and I still wear them today, which is more than I can say for my Jos. A. Bank suits. What's even better, Indochino lets you customize the suit to a pretty extensive degree, I suggest going with 2 buttons, dual vent, and a notch lapel. As for the liner, go crazy.
