Best Suit for me?

Hey guys,
I have a wedding to go too and I need a new suit and while I'm spending money I may as well buy some new sunglasses as well. I've tried looking around and I can't get any definitive guide on what makes a good suit, what colour should I buy, what style of suit, what's in fashion and what's not etc. So can any of you guys give me some tips on what I should get, or pictures for examples of what I should take to a taylor etc?

Also, what style of sunglasses do you suggest I buy? I have quite a big head so it seems larger styles of sunglasses suit me better, does anyone have any pictures or suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Leo

Welcome to the forum! Maybe you can play around with the search function. All your questions are pretty basic and have been discussed in depth in the forum, from construction and value contributing to a "good suit" to various styles and cuts. From what I've learned here, fashion is copying what you see in GQ, style is what you develop from being well informed and putting together what works best for you and what you feel comfortable in. If you really try looking around, you'll have your questions answered. If you're looking for the easy route, maybe some other forum members will be kind enough to post links. In that case, you need to provide more info about yourself. I, on the otherhand, need to hit the sack. Enjoy.
