Looking dapper

Looking dapper

Q. I want to look suave and wear something eye-catching for my big day. What menswear trends should I look out for?

A. Matthew Deboise says: One of the looks we've created many times is a cream or ivory dinner jacket with a shawl lapel, paired with black trousers. This originated while throwing around some ideas with Glenn O'Brien of American GQ. He loved the film Casablanca and the classic style of Humphrey Bogart, who wore the same style of dinner jacket. We made the jacket for Glenn, which featured in the magazine. This look is perfect for those who are wanting more formal attire for their big day, but don't want to go down the usual black-tie route with a traditional black dinner suit. The colour makes it perfect for summer, lawn-style weddings and gives you the flexibility of using the outfit for years to come at celebrations and cocktail parties where you want to stand out from the crowd.
