Made to Measure tailoring is the ultimate style statement for any wedding and Edward certainly cut a striking figure in his personally crafted suit from H+Co.
We are delighted to have been invited to create custom wedding suits for our handsome groom, Edward and his best man, Alex, for his wedding to the very lovely Karin on 12th August 2017. The wedding took place in Karin’s homeland, Sweden, but the couple organised everything from their current home-town, Sydney.
During our initial wedding consultation, we discussed appropriate colours and fabrics to compliment the couple’s wedding style. Ed wanted something different and was keen on a light colour. He opted for made to measure tailoring to ensure his ensemble was really special and truly unique.
With a male wedding party of just two, Ed wanted his groomsman, Alex to match his style exactly. They decided on a light taupe three piece suit with peak lapels and a funky lining for a touch of the unexpected.
With Ed close by in Sydney, fittings went like clockwork, but the challenge was fitting our groom, who is based overseas.
As Alex lives in Wales, in the UK, we first send over our size charts and arranged for his measurements to be sent back to us with pictures of himself, to ensure all his dimensions were perfect for accurately crafting his made to measure suit. The first time Alex would get to try on his suit would be in Sweden just before the wedding, so we knew there would be no time for alterations – we had to get this right first time.
There is nothing worse than trousers that are too long or too short and as we weren’t able to fit Alex in his suit with the correct shoes, we decided to leave the trouser hems unfinished so they could be completed on location.
Boys, we love the understated sophistication – looks like Karin approved too.
We hope you had a wonderful day and we are honoured to have played our part in creating your wedding style.
