The Classic Style
A classic style is flattering on anyone, using time-proven elements that don’t take risks and won’t steal the thunder from your bride’s spotlight.
Think: A suit or tux in muted colors like black, gray, or dark blue.
Bonus points: Picking a tie and pocket-square color to match your bride’s outfit.

The Modern Gentleman Style
A modern gentleman style works for those who want keep a classic feel but also crave some sparks of originality.
Think: A three-piece suit or tux in vibrant or unique colors. And/or flashes of unique style in the lapel or tie. But not entirely risk-taking; this guy wears socks and doesn’t go with a turtleneck or cardigan sweater.
Bonus points: If your tie is so busy it can double as the bouquet.

The Style Icon
The style icon is best for the guys who throw caution to the wind (and who are marrying brides that won’t mind sharing all the attention).
Think: Bold colors, floral prints, separates, and a patterned shirt or even a turtleneck.
Bonus points: You can get away without wearing socks in any season!
