Let's Get Married

As I was hanging out downtown a few days ago, I spotted this dashing crew. They were on their way to a wedding at a church around the corner. I can totally appreciate a well dressed guest list.
There are few better times to look your absolute best than attending a wedding. Here are a few reasons why.

1. Wedding pictures.
News flash, the wedding party will not be the only ones taking pictures that day. This is one of the events where at least 80% of the room will be armed with a camera. So your chances of being in a picture are pretty high. Make sure you're looking your best because those shots will be passed around many times in the weeks and months to follow. And you want to be remembered as a stud. Not a schmuck.

2. Its like fish in a barrel.
There are lots of hot singles who go to weddings. I know a few who go solely for that reason. And as shallow as it sounds, those who are looking good, have a way better chance at making a connection with someone. So especially if your single and looking, why wouldn't you want to present yourself in the best way possible? You could end up planning your own wedding soon.

3. Respect.
Would you show up to a job interview in a T-shirt and some blue jeans? Then don't wear it to a wedding. Or anything else that would mistake you for being a crasher. If it says "black tie" on the invitation then wear a flippin black tie. If the dress code isn't clearly stated (which it most likely will be) then a simple call to the bride or groom beforehand will ensure that you show up properly dressed. Its that simple. They took the time to invite you when they didn't have to. Its a privilege to be there. I know the divorce rate is high, but for many people they will only get married once. When you show up looking your best, it says to them that you care about their special day. Because you may never get that chance again.

Here are few of the standouts in the photo and what they got right:

Whats the kicker? Madras Tie. Perfect pop of color with the pocket square. He lets the tie do all the talking by keeping the rest of the look simple. Don't overdo it.

Whats the kicker? Beautiful graphic on the dress. Although I couldn't tell if it was an Arctic Ocean scene or of an Asian rain forest. There's nothing wrong with wearing a solid color dress but one with a pattern or some graphic just exudes more personality.

Whats the kicker? Tie and lapel width are perfectly in proprtion to each other. If youre wearing a narrow tie then you should make sure the lapels on you jacket are narrow as well. Slim fitting pants with barely no break. You dont want your pants to form a "puddle" around your shoes. This gentleman is demonstrating perfect form.
