Well Suited

The ABCs of Attire For The Groom

Tucked away in a tiny brick structure in the heart of Uptown, a coveted collection of dashing suits, luxurious ties, crisp cotton button-downs and casualwear sit on display like a museum made for the stylish man. I've been completely smitten with the space since the moment I set foot inside. The owner and designer, David Watkins, is equally charming, with an urbane demeanor that matches his sensible design aesthetic. So naturally when it came time for me to address ensembles for the groom, who better to enlist for a bit of advice than Mr. Watkins? That said, here is Part I of his words of wisdom on men's suiting. Brides, be sure to pass along this gem to your grooms to-be, and look for Part II tomorrow!
