Critique on Bespoked Suit for a Tropical wedding in Singapore

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,
Would like to ask about
1. whether this suit looks appropriate for the event? (an outdoor wedding)
2. How does the fit look?
3. What would you advise?

I'm asking this because i've just started working for a Singaporean designer who does bespoked clothing and wondering how to advice clients on occasional suits.

Note that Singapore is very hot and humid AND super dressed down.(I am trying to change the general mind set of the people who come through the door!)

The suit is by KEVIN SEAH where i work btw.

...pinstripes for the groom at a wedding? I've always thought pinstripes to be a pattern more suited for business or professional settings, not a wedding suit. Otherwise, nothing else obviously wrong really jumps out at me. Except perhaps that the bottom button is done up. And the collar might benefit from a slight bit of tightening. Assuming this wasn't a posed photo shoot, congratulations to the groom.

Just make him wear a tux. Come on, at least he's the most important male of the day.

Nope not a posed shot! The Bride is actually a close friend Made him mucho happy! I understand what you are saying about the pin stripes so what would you suggest for tropical wedding and yet have them comfortable? For that matter, would comfort be more important (and looking it)? I have seen so many people dress garishly at grand hotel weddings in Singapore. Just trying to wrap my head around what is appropiate for an outdoor tropical wedding? How about a linen tux, would that work?? hmmm maybe its the business suit look that contributes to the notion that it looks OTR. but trust me , his body shape is such that he couldn't get away with an OTR even with major hacking. Commission, ginghaman? sure! as long as i can close deals with your help!

Solid grey or blue suit is best for this purpose. Stripe looks wrong and out of place. Would not recommend linen, maybe a wool/mohair blend or just light weight tropical worsted wool perhaps half or quarter lined.

IMO, a(n) (off) white linen shawl collar tuxedo would be very apropos for a wedding in tropical Singapore. However, the lapels will be challenging to shape too, IMO. Violates sartorial orthodoxy pretty boldly too.

Personally I think fancy pinstripes (multicoloured, pink, red etc) are fine, but these conservative cream on navy designs look too business like. Personally, I have no idea why you would want to get married in the accountant's ledger line type of stock broker's classical pinstripes. It looks too much like you are getting married in between business meetings and had no time to get changed. Or like the bride is marrying you for your money. It sends the wrong message. Also business attire is far too informal to wear against a bride dressed in a formal dress with veil, trains or crinoline. You might as well be wearing sandals and polo shirt. If the groom is dressed informally enough to go to work dressed that way, so too should the bride. This business of getting married in evening dress is a bit American. Worst of all when they dress like a waiter wearing evening dress in broad daylight!

No. A dreadful American habit. The only reason to do this would be if the wedding ceremony were after 6pm and the groom wishes to portray the affected and unknowing look.

First I will say that the fit is great and looks great on you, I can't say it's right for a tropical wedding though. Usualy for those you want something in a lt tan or sand color, perhaps a linen or something. That all depends on wht the groomsmen are wearing you want to make sure that what ever you are wearing is not any dressire then them, that is a maor faux paux.

This is a pretty pointless comment (no offense). If the suit fits very well, either bespoke or off the rack, you're not going to discern the difference from to random photos.

Right or wrong is not for me to say. If its your wedding wear what you want. You only marry once...

Not necessarily so. It can be discerned by a discerning eye.

in these two small pics sans robot pose in average lighting by an average intrawebz denizen, no. This was just post count raising generality without basis.

But I respect your point.
