What kind of suit should I wear for GQ?

What kind of suit should I wear for GQ?

All or most of your suits should be two-button suits. This is the modern standard. One-button suits are good for formal, nighttime suits and for skinny rocker types who can wear anything (damn them).

What should I wear to a GQ Wedding?

And if the bride and groom are walking the aisle barefoot, you don’t want to be trudging around in a chunky pair of wingtips. A pair of dark, simple sneakers or sandals will do the trick.

What kind of suit should a man wear to a wedding?

Soft linens, cottons and summer wool frescos all come into play during the summer. If you have a fair complexion opt for a darker tone such as a navy in linen or seersucker. A simple two-piece can be paired with a more casual leather shoe such as a loafer or even a suede moccasin. Only you can decide whether you should wear a tie or not.

What to wear to a 9 – 5 wedding dress code?

And just like your 9–5 kits, a gray or navy suit is going to be your best bet here.

You can wear a tux if you’re so inclined but, as the dress code says, it really is optional.

Which is the most common type of men’s suit?

What are the names of the lapels in suits?

Next we’re moving on to lapels. There are two types most common in everyday suits and they’re names are peak (because they jut up and out toward your shoulder, ending in a point) and notch (self explanatory). Going with a notch lapel is like ordering the roast chicken: it’s a total fail-safe.
