You asked one small question and all kinds of madness erupted, who knew getting married would bring this much madness?!? But far away from the hysteria, while the bride and her ‘support network’ take care of the major wedding decisions (you’re simply required to agree, smile and hand over large amounts of money) and the best man plans your demise at the stag do, you can at least take charge of looking suitably suited and booted on the day.
So here’s our guide to the UK’s best groom’s suppliers and outfitters to help you look ‘well groomed’.

Suits, Trousers & Shirts
A range of cool, retro suits makes Tweedman’s Vintage a must for a groom whose wardrobe is already packed with the best of yesteryear. Tweedman’s can provide you with everything from an eye-catching woollen blazer, an old-school velvet smoking jacket or a tweed overcoat for a wintry wedding.
What to do when the weather doesn’t turn up on the big day? One of Slater’s fashionable raincoats can keep the groom’s precious suit dry while actually improving his good looks while he’s travelling from venue to venue, not that the best man would agree.
Thomas Pink’s high quality shirts look fantastic beneath either a crisp suit jacket or a tweed blazer. Expertly designed to ‘tailor made’ fit, these shirts add a real touch of class and will no doubt greatly improve the best man’s chance of wooing a bridesmaid.
A Suit That Fits
A bespoke service from A Suit That Fits gives you and the rest of the groomsmen a reliable suit of armour for the big day. The variety of colours and styles on offer gives you plenty of choice whether you’re thinking long tails or a trendy two-piece to make your wedding guests sit up and take notice.
A Favourbrook waistcoat turns any off the peg two piece into a catwalk worthy three-piece suit, whether you’re after a simple design with a silk finish or a heavy-duty woollen waistcoat with a large shawl lapel to let everybody know who the groom really is.
Gieves & Hawkes
If Bond were to ever get married then these are the shirts he’d be choosing from. Gieves & Hawkes can’t supply you with an Aston Martin DB9, but they can provide a personal tailoring service and a range of crisp designs to leave your loved ones ‘shaken, not stirred…’
