Well-Groomed Advice: Suspender Contenders for a Beach Wedding

Q:

We are getting married on a beach in Portugal - it's going to be relaxed and laid back. We love the trousers, shirt, suspenders and bow tie look for the men. However just wondering how to differentiate the groom, best man and then I want my brother and Dad in matching attire. The groom doesn't want to wear a waistcoat or a blazer - he is quite broad and would be uncomfortable in these. - J

A:

Ahhhh, we can smell the ocean from here!!

No waistcoat, no blazer, no problem. After all, there isn't a better excuse than the beach and the sand to take on a more laid back look. Plus, you can still put the spotlight on the groom by playing with color, materials, or accessories. Here we outline a few examples to go for a 'laxed suspender while setting your brother and Dad apart with coordinating appearance.

Another Color
A different color injection breaks out the mono palette at the same time keeps the group looking fresh.

To Bow or Not To Bow
As planned, complete the groom's look with his signature bow tie to show off his personality. The crew can opt for no bow, different color, or even different shape of ties like the skinny or traditional.

Sartorial Material
Utilizing different fabrics creates such a stylish statement. Formal trouser for the main guy + jeans / chino for the gang - what say you?
