Suit Up

The groom's guide to Charlotte menswear shops

While rentals and department stores are always an option when it comes to outfitting the groom and his men, there is something to be said of the personal attention, added detail and impeccable fit of a final ensemble found at a local shop. While a shopping high is most often associated with a woman, I can guarantee your groom to-be will be equally ecstatic with the experience. Give him his moment to be doted on–and look ever-so dashing on the big day. Plus many local boutiques offer tuxedo rental for those in need who don't wish to make the investment. That said, we've created a handy guide to the Queen City shops for suiting. Make him an appointment, bring his favorite beer to the store and let him have his day in the limelight.
