Well-Groomed Groom: Blue Man Group Pt I

This photographer-turned-groom is dropping knowledge about what he wishes other grooms would do to find their style and telling us how he honed his look for his wedding with Laura. This too good to fit in one post, keep reading for the rest of Part I.

Anthony Barlich of Hitch & Sparrow opted for a navy suit, silver tie, and blue-on-blue gingham shirt. Down low? Striped socks and grey Vans, obviously. He's sporting a curly pompadour/faux hawk hybrid, full beard, and Warby Parker's Wiloughby glasses.

Well-Groomed | As a photog, you're usually behind the lens. Are there certain style statements you wish grooms made more often?

Anthony B | I honestly wish more grooms made their style their own on the wedding day. I don't necessarily know if that subconsciously impacted my decision, but I knew every part of my wardrobe was going to reflect my style and taste. It's usually cookie cutter for grooms, and I wish they took more of a risk and utilized their creative freedom with their wardrobe.

When a groom has this much style, you can assume his boys do, too. Differing ties set some of the guys apart, while leather braces, white shirts, and Vans bring them together.

W-G | Your look was drastically different from the rest of the guys. Why'd you decide to go that route, instead of a more matching style?

AB | I've been in and around a good amount of weddings, which really gave me an opinion on things I never thought I would care about, like my groomsmen's attire. Renting a tux/suit is a non-negotiable for me (based on experience), and I really didn't want to put my guys through that. I wanted everything to be something they could wear and use for multiple reasons and occasions later. My attire was different because it was my wedding and they were my supporting cast. The guys standing up there with me are brothers and some of the absolute best men I know, but I was the groom and I wanted my attire to emphasize that.
