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.

    Suit shopping is hard — take it from someone who shops A LOT. Let’s just get rid of the suits for work and wear T-shirts and jeans forever, #amirite? Well, certain occasions call for a fancy suit and a wedding is one of them. Whether your a groom, a groomsman or just need an inexpensive suit, the list below is just for you. Pick your style, pick your suit. Simple as that.

    The Guy You Always Trust
    Bonobo Foundation Suit

    Bonobos Foundation Cotton Suit, $450

    He always shows up on time. He remembers all your stories. And you’re not sure you’ve ever seen him lose his cool. He’s so put together, when he puts on a simple navy suit he looks better and more comfortable in it than most people do in pajamas. This is the most versatile option for just about any wedding or occasion. The details: Breathable 100% cotton in four color options with traditional notch lapels

    The Collegiate
    J Crew Ludlow wool suit

    J. Crew Ludlow Tweed Suit, $425

    Hey Smarty Pants. When someone asks about your outfit, just say, “Oh, this? It’s just my Donegal tweed suit. No big.” They’ll immediately wonder what your doctorate was in at Yale and where you’re hiding the Oxford Dictionary. This is a great one for rustic weddings or something between formal and informal. The details: Wool tweed, so best in the cooler months, and comes in three colors.

    Laid-back Jack

    Dessy Khaki Suit

    Classic Summer Suit by After Six at Dessy, $159

    This guy doesn’t even know what Xanax is. One time he took a melatonin to sleep on his plane ride to that one tiny exotic island you’ve never heard of. He invited you to go skydiving once — yeah right, dude. Just like that guy, this suit is at home on the beach or basking in the summer sun. The details: Khaki cotton. It’s a pretty classic fit, though it might be cut a little slim in the jacket. Avoid the flip flops, just this once (except in the sand).

    That Slick Motherfucker
    Combatant Gentlemen slim suit

    Combatant Gentleman, $160

    He wears a suit everyday because, you know, that’s what everyone does, right? People see him at work, on the street, at that really cool cafe and think, “Damn, he’s really got it together.” And this guy is smart, too, because this suit is appropriate for pretty much any occasion, all year long. Bonus, it’s hella inexpensive. The details: 100% Italian wool, cut in a slim fit. Pick your choice of 24 freaking colors and style options.

    Casanova

    Men's Wearhouse Three Piece Suit

    Men’s Wearhouse Pronto Uomo Platinum Black Pinstripe Suit, $399

    This guy is smooth AF. Like, they should just put this suit in the dictionary under the word “charm.” 50 Shades of Grey much? This suit needs no bondage accessories to look and feel sexy — it just IS. That’s how it goes with a three-piece suit, you look good no matter what. Add a pocket square or a lapel pin to be real pimp. The details: Comes in five dark shades of 100% wool. Notch lapel and side vent features.

    What kind of suit personality matches your favorite fella?
