In the world of tailoring, each wedding season unfolds a multitude of stories. Each wedding suit I craft carries a unique narrative with it - an expression of the wearer’s style and personality.
As we step into another wedding season, let’s delve into one of the most exquisite weddings I have designed a suit for. Tim Odell, on his special day, radiated fashion, style and elegance through his single-breasted three-piece notch lapel suit.
First things first, when it comes to wedding suits, you can never go wrong with blue, especially with a neutral tone, such as navy blue. Pairing it with a white shirt, Tim added a pop of personality with a pocket square and a tie in a contrasting shade. The look seamlessly complimented the enchanting and charming hotel located in a romantic village on the banks of Lake Como.
Let’s get to the fabric next - the very heart and soul of Tim’s suit. Tim’s wedding suit was crafted by the renowned Magee 1866 Navy & Blue Salt and Pepper Donegal Tweed. Magee 1866 is a fifth-generation Irish family business with over 150 years’ experience in designing, weaving and tailoring luxurious fabrics and clothing in Donegal.
Natural fibres like wool, cashmere, flax and alpaca are central to their collections. These natural fibres are renewable and biodegradable, coming from all-natural sources for a rich, soft feeling that can’t be imitated.
The choice of a three-piece suit for his winter wedding was nothing short of brilliant. A three-piece suit not only provides an additional layer of warmth in the cooler Como climate, but it also adds an extra touch of formality to your outfit. Adding a lapel to the single breasted vest was also a subtle but significant detail that really makes this ensemble one of a kind.
Tim’s suit was a reflection of his style, a nod to tradition, and a tribute to the beauty of Donegal against the backdrop of the breath taking northern Italy. As we embrace the wedding season, remember that your attire can help tell your unique story on your special day.
