Trying to find an outfit for your wedding can be a stressful experience, so to help you find the perfect look, we spoke to Ian Fielding- Calcutt, the founder of Fielding & Nicholson, and asked for his dos and don'ts when it comes to men's tailoring.

Summer weddings
Opt for a lightweight linen or cotton suit in pastel colours like light blue, pale pink, or mint green. Pair it with a crisp white dress shirt and a colourful silk tie. Avoid dark, heavy fabrics and formal black suits and steer clear of heavy wool suits. Consider polished loafers, suede derbies, or a pair of smart leather brogues in light tan or brown shades. Remember, not wearing socks is a big faux pas for a formal wedding. Go for tonal socks and trousers that break on the shoe.

City weddings
A tailored navy or charcoal suit with a slim fit is the perfect choice for a city wedding. Pair it with a light-coloured shirt and a sleek silk tie. Steer clear of overly casual attire, such as polo shirts or shorts, and overly vibrant or casual patterns; stick to classic, sophisticated choices.

Country celebrations
For a wedding in the country, embrace earthy tones and breathable fabrics. Look at a light brown or khaki suit, complemented by a gingham or checked dress shirt, and go for a linen or lightweight wool blend. Avoid overly formal attire, such as dark pinstripe suits and stay away from heavy fabrics and overly bright colours. Opt for classic Oxford shoes in black or dark brown leather for a refined finish.

The perfect fit
When it comes to jackets, opt for a tailored fit with a slightly shorter length for a modern look. Consider a slim fit to maintain a sleek silhouette. For trousers, choose a slim, tailored fit with a slightly tapered leg for a contemporary style. Avoid overly loose or baggy trousers.

Accessories
For your tie, embrace silk options in subtle patterns or soft, complementary colours that add a pop of interest to your look. Look for a light linen pocket square in a coordinating colour to add a touch of elegance. Grooming and styling Opt for a sleek, well-groomed hair style that complements your tailored suit. Consider a stylish wristwatch and a sophisticated leather belt to complete the look.
