8 Essential Gents’ Looks to Get You Through Spring/Summer Wedding Season in Style

Now that you’ve RSVP’ed to that spring/summer wedding, the realization may be hitting that that invitation maybe not be providing all the information you really need. You know where it is, when it is, and maybe even what you’ll be eating…but do you really know what to wear? Sometimes they think they tell you…black tie, white tie, formal, semi-formal, festive attire, dressy formal, dressy casual, casual. But what does that really mean? We’ve broken it all down in our Clothes & Conversation “The Spring Wedding Invitation Glossary: A Gent's Guide to What to Wear” this week.
Have a better idea of what you’re now looking for now? Here are two options for each wedding type, depending on your style.

Outfit 1: Black Tie, Timeless. Polo Ralph Lauren’s classic fit, one button, peak lapel tuxedo IS timeless elegance. The peak lapel style was actually derived from the super formal tailcoat and for decades was considered the only truly “proper” tuxedo jacket. They are generally the most expensive type of lapel to manufacture, with their crisp points. And they certainly elevate this tuxedo. The pants are finished with interior suspender buttons and functional, exterior side tabs that are a stylish accent when worn without a cummerbund or suspenders.

David Donahue - Horizontal Twill Regular Fit Tuxedo Shirt
A classic tuxedo call for a classic tuxedo shirt. David Donahue’s is made of a fine horizontal cotton twill that adds very subtle texture and a crisp look. The removable button placket allows you to wear it with studs or as is. And the modified spread collar looks good with a bow or a regular formal tie, so you’ll be able to add updates and change up your look to wear it over and over.

While the regular, long tie has become an acceptable modern look with a tuxedo, the truly proper tie is a bow. And it’s a look that never goes out of style, so you’ll always be appropriate. Historically, formal bow ties come in several styles - from a butterfly bow shape to a batwing straight-end shape. Because a pointed-end shape highlights the points of a peak lapel, it is a classic look and our top pick for this outfit. The black satin fabric also matches the sheen of the featured tuxedo’s lapels, which is key to a good combination.

While a waistcoat isn’t necessary to complete this look, it certain adds another level of dapper traditional style. When tuxedos were first introduced, they were intended to be a minimalist alternative to the pomp and splendor of the 1880’s daytime outfits. Covering the working parts of the outfit was a common practice, so the waistcoat was designed to cover the waistband of the pants and the blouse of the shirt at the waistband. This black satin waistcoat from David Donahue is a perfect compliment to the 1-button jacket of the tuxedo in this look, and a beautiful sartorial finish.

A French cuff shirt, like the one in this outfit, needs a great cuff link. And when it comes to cuff links, we recommend every gent having a classic, high quality pair that will work for many outfits and occasions. David Donahue’s sterling silver pair has an oval shape and latice etching that will never go out of style. Not only are they high quality, but the sterling silver also works with any dressy looks so you will reach for them over and over.

A tuxedo is intended to be worn with simple, plain shoes that look different from the brogues worn with a business suit. Originally, formal shoes took on a slipper-like appearance. Patent leather, because of its shine, was the preferred look from the 1800’s until the 1950’s when smooth calfskin leather became an acceptable alternative. And it's still the preference for a truly classic and timeless look. These Magnanni patent leather plain toe oxfords look great with the Polo peak lapel tuxedo and this whole look. The high quality helps keep them comfortable for an evening of mingling and dancing.

J.Crew - Ludlow Shawl-collar Tuxedo Jacket
Outfit 2: Black Tie, Modern. While the original version of a tuxedo had peak lapels, the shawl collar lapel became popular with the advent of smoking jackets. Initially considered a more casual formal look, today a shawl collar is considered proper at any formal black tie event, with a sharp and updated feeling. J.Crew has one of our favorites, in their contemporary Ludlow fit that is trim without being too slim for most gents. The shaped 1-button jacket is made from luxurious wool woven at a renowned Italian mill (Lanificio di Tollegno) and has all the elegance and style we require, with a J.Crew-friendly price tag. It comes in navy too, which is very chic, but we’re picking black for its ever-appropriate feel. The pants, sold separately, come in a modern or contemporary fit, and both work with the neutral fit of this jacket so just go with whatever is more comfortable for you.

From Hugo Boss, this contemporary fit, French cuff, all cotton piqué shirt looks great with the shawl collar of this outfit’s tuxedo jacket and lays smoothly beneath it. The removable button placket lets you add studs if you want to add some additional polish, though it looks great just as is. The modified point collar is good with all tie shapes, so you’ll have a lot of options to change up the look with the same shirt and tuxedo.

The square end of this English silk bowtie from Brooks Brothers has a stylish retro ’60’s James Bond feel that looks fresh and modern with the shawl collar of the tuxedo in this look. And, yes, it is a self-tie – you don’t think James Bond clipped his on, do you? Just tie it like you would your shoes, it doesn’t have to be perfect.

As we noted in the last tuxedo outfit, a simple shoe is best with a tuxedo, whether patent or smooth calfskin.

Made in Italy, it is extremely comfortable for a night on the dance floor.

Outfit 3: Formal, Timeless. This blue stripe suit from Peter Millar will be a stand out at any formal wedding – only in the most appropriate way, of course. The rich blue shade and the narrow pinstripes of this seasonless wool aren’t too serious, but create a seriously elegant look in a modern fit that any gent will be able to wear for years. The suit really speaks for itself in its dapper details and fit. And don’t forget, your local Nordstrom –or your favorite tailor – can do any needed alterations to ensure a perfect fit, which is always key to making you look your dressy best. A white spread collar shirt makes this a dressy suit.

If it is an evening wedding with black-tie optional attire being requested, stick to a simple spread collar white shirt. But otherwise, you can play with some subtle and sophisticated pattern by pairing this outfit’s suit with a blue stripe spread collar shirt, also from Peter Millar. The white ground with alternating blue stripes has a formal look and coordinates well with the suit. The Nanoluxe fabric adds a wrinkle free component to the shirt, while the modern fit ensures it will lay smoothly under the modern fit of the suit.

The navy color and sleek wool is ideal for a wedding, and any formal event. It will surely have you showing up in style, but one of the great perks of this suit is how easy it is to accessorize with an endless variety of shirts and ties. This will be your “go to” suit for all your special occasions and is even a great office suit when you pair it with less formal accessories.

Keeping the accessories simple is always a good rule for formal occasions. This especially applies to shoes, since you want to invest in a pair that is high quality and that you’ll get to wear a lot. To Boot New York’s simple cap toe is made in Italy, and is known for their beautiful quality. Of course, a leather sole is good for dancing, and the leather lining only adds to the comfort and long wear of these shoes. The brown color lightens up the look for a summer wedding and adds a fresh, modern finish.

Outfit 5: Semi-Formal, Timeless. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation this week, a semi-formal wedding still requires a suit, but you can lighten up the color and take a less serious approach to the whole thing. Brooks Brothers has the perfect choice for this, in their mid-tone grey stripe suit. It's modeled in their Fitzgerald body, which has a modern fit and updated attitude that works for most every gent, providing a timeless feel and fit. This suit is made in their BrooksCool® wool which is ideal for a summertime wedding because it is super lightweight and breathable – if you’re going to be outside for even a portion of the wedding, you know how important this can be.

The classic beaded stripe of the suit in this outfit gives a lot of versatility to accessorize. And since we’re planning this look for a semi-formal wedding, you can skip the solid white or blue dress shirt and go with this blue pattern from David Donahue. The soft check and modern fit works really well with the stripe in the suit, creating a stylish mix that is still very classic in their patterns.

It is important to balance the two patterns in the suit and the shirt with the ideal tie. The dark blue ground and pink stripe in this Hugo Boss tie brings the look together, with its wider spacing of the classic stripe pattern. The touch of pink adds a nice pop of color, especially for a wedding. And the 3” width is updated without being too skinny, maintaining a timeless style.

So, of course, we would pick a classic plain-toe shoe from them to complete this outfit. They’ll never go out of style – which is a good thing, since they’re going to last forever and stay comfortable for just as long. And you’ll be able to wear them with any suit in your closet, so they practically pay for themselves.

Outfit 6: Semi-Formal, Modern. If you’re ready to break out your sartorial know-how for this wedding, this medium blue wool 2-button wool suit from Todd Snyder White Label suit is for you. This is a newer secondary line created by its namesake, who has roots with J.Crew and has been labeled one of GQ’s best new menswear designers. We couldn’t agree more, so get in early on this one. The contemporary fit marries wonderfully with the modern look of the suit - it has a very appropriate and not too fashion-forward feel. The fabric’s tonal texture and medium blue shade, which is not too light and not too dark, is great for a wedding guest look. The price is even better for the quality, and this versatile color will give you plenty of options to wear it all season long.

The coordinating floral neck and under-the-cuff trim isn’t noticeable unless you want it to be.

You’ll never go wrong with Brooks Brothers’ cotton/linen blend blazer. It’s in one of our favorite models, the Fitzgerald, which has a modern fit with updated narrower lapels and a shorter jacket length. So it’s a fit that works for most gents, but has an updated feel. This is a blazer that can be worn with or without a tie, so you’ll be covered for any event – and you’ll get plenty of use out of it all season long.

The choice of what shoes to wear for a casual or outdoor wedding can be tricky. You want to look smart, which means no sneakers or boat shoes, but your true dress shoes are simply too dressy – and certainly inappropriate if you’ll be walking along a beach or in a grassy park. These tan wingtips from Sperry Top-Sider have a leather upper that gives them a polished look, but the rubber sole makes them an easy solution for walking around any setting. They look great with this outfit, and will work with your cotton pants and jeans every other day of the week.

As with our other casual outfit, your shoes need to be casual but not too casual – flip flops are out with this look, gents. This brogue from Cole Haan by Todd Snyder (yup, the same designer of the shirt in this outfit partnered with Cole Haan on these) has the stylish and casual feel you need. The pale ironstone grey is awesome looking and the rubber sole make them functional for outdoor wear. They look just as good with jeans and any cotton pants for the season, which is a nice perk if you’re traveling for this wedding…you’ll be able to re-wear these shoes for the whole trip.
