Groom Style – Stewart

With the beautifully rugged coast line as their backdrop, Claire and Stewart’s Elegant Tasmanian Wedding incorporated a chic, timeless colour palette of steely hues and textured creams.

Stewart’s blue suit, shirt and tie were all from Godwin Charli, whilst his groomsmen were simply asked to wear their own suits in charcoal, blue and grey. As each of the suits were different – two were from Hugo Boss and one was from Roger David, the groomsmen wore white shirts and black MJ Bale ties to co-ordinate the look.

Get The Look: Barcelona Bridal Week 2016 – Fuentecapala ‘Metropoli’ Collection

Fuentecapala’s 2016 collection ‘Metropoli’ was the featured menswear attire at Barcelona Bridal Week this year, and judging by the photos, there’s no wondering why! Fuentecapala combined fashion and architecture to create the stunning collection plus a whole new level of couture.

‘Metropoli’ may just look like a crisp work of tailored art, full of sophistication and vibrance, but trust me when I say this, there’s much more to it than meets the eye! In its own way, it captures the design elements of many iconic buildings around the world, such as the clean and linear Grundtvigs Church in Copenhagen, the contemporary yet tropical inspired Wind and Water in Vietnam and the experimental Blue Residential Tower in New York. This iconic building inspiration was motivated by an innovative language that shies away from stereotypes and instead encourages originality and imagination.

You’re probably thinking, how do I achieve these looks without buying the real thing (which let’s be honest, could be a bit pricey!)? I’ve realised that the key here is to find a balance between the traditional look and the modern look, which is what Fuentecapala managed to do so well with ‘Metropoli’ – merging classicism and avant-garde into one. You could go for classic silhouettes that have futuristic looking patterns on them or vice versa.

To give you a rough idea, maybe you could start off with the Ted Baker Offrule Satin Shirt in white and the Eclissi and Oro Paisley Tie by Rhodes & Beckett.  Add on Arthur Galan’s Alek Satin Lapel Jacket for a shine and pants to suit, then complete the outfit with the Otavio shoes from Florsheim. When we come down to it, there’s really no right or wrong when it comes to style. So don’t be afraid to experiment with volume, proportion, shape, colour and texture until you’re satisfied and feel half old, half new!

Oscar Hunt Autumn Winter 2015

by | Groom, Groom Fashion


Polka Dot Bride

I am simply loving the Oscar Hunt Autumn Winter 2015 collection. The luscious textures, the deep colours, the Winter tones and colours all come together to combine into the most stylish of looks for the groom to be.

The campaign, shot against industrial style machinery at Fitzroy’s Nobody Denim workshop really brings the care taken in fabrication of the suits to life. This season introduces Irish tweeds, with Winter weight wool fabric allowing for easy layering and warmth without losing that Oscar Hunt sense of sartorial style.

Double breasted sports jackets in pinstripes, slate blue jackets with olive-green threads, chocolate-brown pants and velvet jackets all give versatility in the colder season.  Tie in hues of marsala, burnt orange and earthy tones echo the tones of nature- something Oscar Hunt knows never to mess with.

While one can get fitted in the Oscar Hunt Melbourne showroom with just a 45 minute appointment, they also offer a special bridal party service. A 1.5 hour appointment (for a bridal party of four to six) will have you drinking whiskey or freshly mixed cocktails by the staff (who can even arrange food delivery, but of course) while perusing the store for the right suit for your wedding day. The team works with you to understand the style of your wedding before experimenting with different suit styles and deciding on customisation (want a fun lining? done!, a personalised monogram? tick!) A second fitting ensures the fit of your suit is perfect.

The Oscar Hunt Autumn Winter 2015 collection is available in store now.
