Super 100’s Gabardine
Want to fit in at a formal event? Then you’ll have to step your game up. Fortunately, the Super 100’s Gabardine Pleated Trousers make that possible with one simple purchase. The good news here is that you can opt for one of several color options, which means you don’t necessarily have to invest in an entirely new wardrobe just to pull things together. You can match your pants to an existing suit coat, for example, by pairing navy with navy.
These are a great choice for men’s wedding pants! You’ll also notice that there are plenty of fitting options to ensure the pants fit snugly. This includes waist size, bottom finish, and inseam. If you aren’t sure what your individual measurements are, you might want to consider consulting a tailor and having them write them down for you.
Seersucker Flat Front
Going to an outdoor event or beach wedding? Then you’ll want to opt for a woven style that makes it possible to dress up with full-length trousers and still feel like you’re wearing cool, breathable pants. Enter our Seersucker Flat Front options. These lighter pants are ideal for summer weddings, especially when the setting requires plenty of exposure to the sun or the open air.
The reason seersucker works so well for these settings? The dimpled texture of the fabric helps keep it from sticking to the skin, which in turn keeps air moving through the trousers. That will not only help you regulate the temperature properly, but the fabric itself is an especially stylish look for warmer weather. That makes these a great pair of men’s wedding trousers!
Charleston Khakis Stretch Twill
Want something a little more casual, yet still stylish enough to fit right in during a wedding? Then it’s hard to justify venturing too far from Charleston Khakis. These Stretch Twill Charleston Khakis are an especially apt choice. They be paired with a dark or navy blazer and a tie for that “formal” look. Plus, they’re comfortable enough to keep on for both the service and wedding reception without missing a beat.
How To Dress For A Wedding As A Male Guest
Search online for “how to dress for a wedding” and you’re sure to find all sorts of tips and suggestions—and many of them will be for female guests. But what about men? What are the best practices for dressing for a wedding so you look good without ruffling any feathers? Here are some rules of thumb on how to dress for a wedding as a male guest.
Never Outshine The Groom
You know how it’s taboo for female wedding guests to wear white? The same rule should apply for men. In this case, the idea is not to dress to outshine the groom.
The groom will typically wear a tuxedo or a three-piece suit. In many cases, these weddings include ornamentations such as a flower pinned to the jacket lapel. That means you should avoid doing the same thing unless you’re a groomsman and you’ve been instructed to do so.
That isn’t to say you shouldn’t dress your best, however. You still want to honor the occasion by wearing, for example, your favorite pair of tailored trousers. Just make sure that when it comes to the suiting, you avoid looking like a member of the wedding party.
Dress For The Season
“Wedding season” typically refers to late spring through early autumn, those mild-to-warm months in which the weather is most likely to cooperate with the wedding. But let’s face it: sometimes “wedding clothes” can mean dressing with far too many layers for the weather!
To combat this, dress for the season. A light pair of Charleston Khakis in Stretch Twill is an ideal option for a hot summer wedding. Pair it with a tie and a blazer and you’ll look every bit wedding-appropriate. And because you’re a guest—and not participating in the wedding itself—you can feel free to experiment with all sorts of colors with your accessories.
Give The Occasion Its Proper Respect
Going to a wedding is an excuse to dress up. For the more fashion-minded among us, that means that we’ll have an audience for our latest fashion choices. But it’s also important to remember that weddings are social gatherings intended to be all about the marriage taking place. This is their big day. They’re the ones who invited you—and they’re the ones footing the bill for the food, the dancing, and the experience. It’s only polite to repay that kindness with the respect the occasion deserves.
One way of paying that respect is to dress the part. Dress your best! Now’s the time to throw away the denim in exchange for something a little more upscale, such as our Polyester Tropical Wool Pants in Flat Front. And don’t forget to use the custom fitting options with your pants to ensure that you don’t wear anything that’s excessively baggy or achingly tight. A proper-fitting suit is a sign that you regard the occasion with the propriety it deserves.
For most weddings, a blazer and tie are the go-to choices for men to wear. Make sure your belt and shoes match your outfit as well. Skip the sneakers, and opt for loafers or a similar pair of dress shoes. Depending on how formal the wedding is, you can consider other accessories like cuff links or tie pins.
