As part of our The Feast Wedding Special, we traveled to the men's custom formalwear boutique, Distante, to meet with pros-in-looking-dapper Charles Morrotta and Baba Taiye Renfrow. Their advice for your impending walk down the aisle: think outside your basic black dinner jacket and dare to be different.
Here, Morrotta and Renfrow relay a story about a groom, who, seduced by the idea of a Humphrey Bogart-inspired look, blows right by an original $750 budget and into a ivory, silk dupioni jacket. On the big day, the groom's look had tongues wagging, and had the mother of the bride doing back flips even months after the wedding.
Moral of the story: A wedding may be a bride's time to shine, but by no means should she outshine.
