Groom Prep

Who gets ready at the last minute? Last Friday, a client of mine asks me to help a friend of his out of a jam. An hour later, I find out his friend is getting married on Saturday and forgets his shirt and bowtie back home in Virginia. Needless to say, I found the right fitting shirt and bowtie and he’s a happy camper.

And you thought all the groom had to do was show up! This situation reminded me of how I prepped for my day. Unless I woke up thinking I was Denzel, I couldn’t just roll out of bed and go get married. When your big day rolls around, be smart, and use a checklist. My list was not too complicated.

1. Pack your clothes early

2. Pack grooming products in Dopp kit

3. Get shirt pressed day of event

4. Make sure you have the rings

5. Your “best man” is your backup reminder

If you missed the pre-Oscar red carpet show, you missed the bromance between nominees Bradley Cooper and Jonah Hill.  Although these two did not bring home the coveted award, they were dressed for the occasion. Clearly, Bradley Cooper wearing Tom Ford, was the best dressed.  Clean cut peak lapel tuxedo, tailored to perfection with a regular break at the hem, and just enough length on his sleeves to show a hint of the shirt and his Chopard watch.  Jonah Hill wearing Dolce & Gabbana, looking sharp as this notch lapel tuxedo fits his build very well.
