Groom Style #15: The Way We Were

Inspiration? Melissa Sweet Embroidered Gown
the way we were
Dress: Melissa Sweet; Tuxedo: Hugo Boss; Ring: About Time; Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo; Cuff links: Tiffany; Watch: Victorinox Swiss Army; Bag: Dolce & Gabbana; Shaving Brush & Cream: Art of Shaving

Over the weekend, I watched The Way We Were for the first time. To be honest, I thought the movie was a bit on a dull side (I know. Don't hate me). But, I couldn't take my eyes off of the very, hunky Robert Redford, who plays Hubbell Gardner, an all-American athlete. His look was clean-cut, simple and classic. Again, as fate would have it, I received an e-mail from Michele, a beautiful bride from New York, asking me to help style her athletic, all-American groom, Greg.

Michele's very lovely gown is from Melissa Sweet with delicate bead work and embroidery. She needs her groom to have an equally classic look with delicate and simple details to match. Keep the lines simple - this particular tuxedo jacket has one button and a shawl lapel. Keep the accessories minimal - a bow tie, watch and silver cuff links are all you need. The Victorninox Swiss Army watch is rugged and tough, transitioning easily from the athletic field to the reception. The silver cuff links from Tiffany are a beautiful, yet simple way to style your shirt. Your groom can achieve a clean shaven look by using The Art of Shaving shaving brush and cream. Finally, don't forget your weekender bag for a quick pre-honeymoon trip to a bed & breakfast upstate.
