Three parts of Four ( there’s a single-breasted waistcoat as well! )
British Bespoke from Cad & the Dandy
Hi, thanks for the message. First of all, Congratulations!
I’ve always been a fan of double breasted, shawl collar dinner suits, This midnight blue one by Rubinacci for M. Fan is pretty special. Going for slipper type shoes is another step towards the dandy-esque end of the scale, although traditional ‘Opera-Pumps’ are entirely correct they can take some confidence to pull off well. Embroidered velvet slippers are even more showy and I would give them a miss. Personally I would aim for some black suede Whole-cut’s with ribbon laces, or the pumps, maybe in suede? Remember, you want to look great, classically elegant, so that when you look back at the photos in 20 or 30 years time you don’t look like a dated mess. Also you don’t want shoes that draw attention away from the bride.
Hope that helped?
