How To Style The Classic Cream Suit

The HM5 Suit's yellow tone complements blue beautifully, and it also looks fantastic with other natural colours like tans, oranges, and browns. Due to the simplicity of this style, you can add a print to it by wearing a printed shirt or adding accessories like a tie or pocket square. 
The groom wearing a contrasting waistcoat is an excellent approach to add distinction between the Groom and his Ushers. The ideal option is either our Kelvin Waistcoat in Tan or our Kelvin Waistcoat in Sky Blue. The choice will mostly depend on the wedding's theme and which fashion matches the colours and fabrics of the decor and bridesmaid dresses. 


Looking sharp is a breeze with the Edinson Check suit with its classic check design. This navy check suit provides timeless style, perfect for both summer and formal occasions like a wedding. Crafted from lightweight fabric, it'll keep you feeling comfortable in any situation. A blue suit is one of the most adaptable pieces a man can own. 
The same three-piece you get married in, with some clever tricks, can also work for days in the office, casual smart date nights and drinks with the lads. Why is a blue suit more versatile than the rest? It’s less sombre than a black suit and more interesting than a grey. It flatters all skin tones and pairs perfectly with everything on the colour wheel.

How To Style Tones For Summer Attire

Whilst most colours of shirts will work with a plain grey suit, it's wise to note any subtle hints of colour in a style when choosing the shirt. For this style, the tonal tan makes white, neutral or earthy tones the route to go down. 
The metallic hue of grey makes it perfect for pairing with gold and silver, so be sure to add in metal accessories like tie bars and cufflinks. For a sophisticated wedding look, style with an olive green shirt and tan loafers. Add a printed pocket square in an opposing earthy colour, like orange or mustard, to pull the look together.
