Had a suit made by Thom Sweeney that was made from lightweight wool (under their advice as I didn't want linen or seersucker) and was fine when I wore it for my wedding in Bali (#humblebrag).

not sure i can stretch to getting one from snayer's old man unfortunately. i may consider it though


nice but wrong proportions. don't think I could ever buy a suit off ebay - no chance of returns if sizing is wrong

It does indeed look better on their own site (rather than the shitty matches styling)

Just wear navy. You don't want to out-do the bride.

Do you have any groomsmen or a best man Swede? You might be mistaken for a guest if it's just you in green and they look smarter.

Agree that suit is too casual to wear at your own wedding. If you were a guest its acceptable, but as a groom its a no IMO.

The fact that its worn with trainers and sandals in the styling pics should tell you all you need to know.

Need some opinions

Mccoys or flat head?

McCoy’s


Flat Head. The colour is more of a very dark brown

Like the colour of the Flat Head but McCoys for me due to smaller lapels, sleeve length & slimmer cuffs.
