Interview with Joseph Abboud

“That’s what I’ve always tried to do”,  says Joseph Abboud when we talked about his signature look, “is to make American men more sophisticated and have them be more wordly, not just be so preppy or so American.”

The iconic American menswear designer, Joseph Abboud, was personally involved in this year’s BRIDES Live Wedding series featuring Elle Fowler, YouTube star AllThatGlitters21 who posts beauty and style-related tutorials, and her groom: Alex Goot, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist from New York. Just as the bride carefully chooses her gown, Men’s Wearhouse believes the groom should have his special look too.”


Urban Engagement

Clear cut signs that you’re a well-groomed guy are the way you suited up and the way you treat your lady. Our guy, Spencer – who wore slim fit navy blue scattered dash patterned suit paired with white slim fit french cuff dress shirt, fun light blue ice cream cone patterned tie, tie bar, leather belt, red socks and double monk shoes for his engagement photo shoot – was one good example. He was not only suited up with the right outfit for the right occasion, the fit was unbelievably perfect and he clearly made his soon-to-be-Mrs. danced happily!


Mixing Grey Pinstripe & Fresh Floral Pattern

These flowers were for our special day! 

On Olivia & Kevin’s Cathedral Park Wedding, the groom really have mastered the art of pattern mixing – adding a dash of floral flavor onto his look.


How This Groom Rocks Turquoise & Coral

A lot of guys say, “aqua / teal is a pretty hard color to work with”. Well. Not to this well-groomed groom.

Today we leaped back to last year in August, when this gorgeous glittery wedding happened!


Style Advice - Navy Tuxedo with Brown Shoes

My finacee and I are doing an outdoor ceremony and reception at a local vineyard. I have decided to do navy suits, dusty shale ties, and light brown shoes for the grooms. There is one problem, I have an identical twin brother. 

So, to distinguish myself from him, I’ve decided to dress it up just a bit more and wear a navy blue tux

(all navy, no black in the tux. Calvin Klein Navy extreme slim fit tux). I will also be wearing a bow-tie. I would like to wear light brown shoes with the naxy tux, however, everything I’ve read states you should wear black shoes with any tux. What is your opinion? Thanks. – Josh
