Row I: I know, a tux is a no brainier as an option for wedding day attire, but instead of renting one, have your groom-to-be consider investing in one of his own. Jos. A. Bank has great suit and tux specials and will make sure his choice is perfectly tailored and impossibly handsome on the big day. Regardless of if you man rents his tux or purchases one of his own, a pair of really nice cuff links is a great fashion accessory. This pair by John Hardy is for sure a splurge, but totally worth investing in for the ultimate in special occasions. Another great accessory is a well-crafted tie. For a sophisticated alternative to the traditional bow-tie, this silk tie by David Donahue is a good-looking option.

Row II: Let’s face it, it’s much harder for a man to find clothes that are a perfect fit. Shirts My Way has this problem solved by allowing the customer to design and custom order their special shirt—ensuring a perfectly tailored fit right out of the box. Guys that are looking for a updated traditional look, should definitely go the suit route. I love this suit by J. Crew, that has a classic silhouette, but a bit more refined for the modern man. Ok, this watch by TX is beyond hip, but for those not wanting to splurge on the pricey timepiece, use this for inspiration. A classic chronograph watch in sleek stainless steel will not only make your hubby-to-be feel like James Bond, but look like him too.

Row III: Adding a unique pocket square to a classic suit or blazer is a great way to turn up the fashion volume. I love this playful print and fresh hue in this pocket square by Paul Smith. A light colored, relaxed fit pant is a great option for beach side weddings. A pair of chinos has a flat front, like these from Canterbury of New Zealand, which is a flattering option. Up the ante on the casual groom’s look with a bold bow tie! Ben Silver has several unique and traditional bow ties by the dozens in a variety of hues.
