Welcome to Jacket’s Required, hello, I’m Dominic Lacquaniti, designer and tailor.
On this week’s episode of Jackets required TV I’m going to talk to you about proper attire for the timeless beach wedding.
On trend for 2016 you’ll see Pops of color via a single simple pocket square for the gents.
When you’re heading to a beach wedding lose the tux unless it is specifically deemed black tie.
Instead don a stylish suit made of Linen, Cotton, Seersucker or a tropical weight wool – which are more breathable fabrics than your typical heavy wools, and a great base color for this type of suit is a light gray, tan or blue. You can build on it from there and it gives you a number of options.
Please do not show up in sandals, it’s still a wedding and no matter how casual – it’s still an important occasion. You can still be stylish and comfortable in a nice pair of loafers or lace up’s with no socks. Yes you will likely get sand in your shoe – deal with it, it’s a wedding – at a beach!
Celebrate the joyous occasion in STYLE.
Share with your stylish, and style-challenged friends, and be sure to let me know if you have a specific question or topic you’d like to see in the series.
Thanks for watching. See you next week. Remember, looking good is between you and your tailor…
