BHLDN Gift Sets, $50 – In Dot or Solid (Comes with a tie, tie bar and pocket square)

Dudes! Have you heard about the new collab between BHLDN and The Tie Bar? For those who may not know, BHLDN is the wedding collection by Anthropologie. They’re pretty major in the bridal scene (obvs your fiancée has read about them here, here and here) and it looks like they’re spreading their lacy wings into grooms attire. We’re also huge fans of The Tie Bar and their crazy assortment of suiting accessories — we talk about them quite a bit, too.

So, of course, we’re loving that two of our fave brands are coming together.

If you want to pick up some BHLDN items, you’ll want to act fast. They’re already sold out of the blush pink collections and we’re betting the rest won’t last for long. Here’s hoping they’ll get stocked up soon.

    Go vintage! Check out this 50s midnight blue tuxedo from Etsy seller StyleStash ($275)

    Fellas, let’s talk tuxedos. Being a groom is probably one of the few times in our lives that wearing a tux is appropriate. Some of you may want to take a little advice from Jay Gatsby and suit up for this magical occasion. And guess what? You don’t have to look all extra-formal and stuffy while you do it. Here are a few non-traditional ways we’ve found to sport a slick tuxedo for the big day.
    Combatant Gentleman Navy Tux
    Navy is a fun and easy way to do a formal look that’s just a little different. This one from Combatant Gentlemen also comes in heather gray and is only $200!
    J Crew Chambray Tuxedo
    Ditch the plain ole white button up for a seasonal pattern to mix it up. (IN LOVE with this Chambray Tux, btw.) J. Crew, $525.
    Etsy Banded Collar Bib Tux Shirt
    Here’s a neat idea: A banded collar bib tux shirt — no tie necessary! It still looks great even without the jacket. Etsy seller SixStarUniforms, $18.95 & Up.
    Tuxedo T-Shirt from Etsy seller YouHadMeAtInk
    Sorry, you guys. I couldn’t help myself. It is a fun groom’s gift though. Etsy seller YouHadMeAtInk, $16
    Men's Warehouse Gray Tuxedo
    The best thing about this color and style is that you could use these pieces separately for any occasion. Men’s Wearhouse, $695.
    Burgundy Tuxedo
    Way into this color for a tuxedo, it’s really unexpected. The vest is a great way to make it polished even without the jacket. Amazon, $109.97.

    Alright guys, let’s be honest, dressing up kinda sucks. There's all the fussy jackets and ties, not to mention the stiff shoes. Have you ever been to a wedding where the groom and groomsmen looked like kids in their dad’s suits? Yeah, not fun. That’s why it’s important to make sure you dress not only to fit the occasion -- whether it’s formal or otherwise…

    Alright guys, I'm gonna be honest, I never thought I'd be a pocket square kinda guy. They always seemed too fancy and fussy. One day, just for shits and giggles, I thought I'd try one out for a wedding I was going to. Wouldn't you know, I totally dug it. In fact, I favored it over my tie, so I went tieless and open collar.…
