These days it’s possible to get an affordable suit that you can wear on your wedding day and many times afterwards. Unlike wedding dresses, the groom’s attire not need be a one-and-done affair.
No matter what, focus on fit. Your suit should be “Mad Men” slim but not tight. These days companies like Indochino are making it easier to get a fully custom suit for a reasonable price. And unless you are having a black-tie celebration, stick to a navy or grey suit for maximum versatility for suited-up occasions post-nupitials.
This Grey Suit from Indochino starts at around $449, much less than having a suit custom made by traditional means. Thank the Internet revolution for Indochino’s online customization system. Note the details here: Everything is in proportion here from the width of the shirt collar, tie and jacket lapel.
