Can The Groom Wear Short Sleeves?

By Well Groomed

Posted in , , ,

I received quite a few emails on this topic. It’s no wonder, with the weather getting warmer, many guys (I personally know one in my household!) would love nothing more than a comfy, cool, relaxed outfit.

The answer is yes, Mr. Grooms, you can wear short sleeves for the wedding….but it depends on the overall theme of the party. If you and the Mrs-to-be agree on a more chill atmosphere, in the outdoors or an old barn, not the royal ballroom, then short sleeves shirt is something that you can work with.

Option 1: Pick something with a subtle pattern and combine with solid color vest of the same hue. A bow tie is a can’t fail way to super charge your look!

Option 2: Another favorite is rolled up long sleeves. This trick is a compromise between the Mr. and I =). A colored suspender against the classic white shirt create a sharp look!

Some of our favorite pieces to create the look – picked and approved by the Mr. himself:

 Quick tip: Macy’s is having a private sale on their men department that ends this weekend. It’s an extra 25% off on $100 or more with code FORYOU .
