HOW TO: CASUAL GROOM ATTIRE

 

Regardless of where you sit within a wedding party, your choice of suit leaves something of an impression on the big day. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of classic pieces or want something more contemporary, your look allows your personality to emanate from you.

 

HANSEN Garments is known for beautifully-designed, casual suiting pieces. Therefore, we want to share some of our favourite suits with you, perfect for casual weddings.

 

 

 

Classic cool - the contemporary way

 

From our SS20 collection, the KRISTIAN two-button blazer is a contemporary choice which also features thoughtfully-placed classic details. It has two flap pockets on the front of the piece, as well as a high breast pocket. It’s half-lined, meaning it sits elegantly on the body.

 

The blazer is made from an Italian, yarn-dyed fabric called delavé. The yarn is washed before it’s woven, meaning different coloured flecks subtly brighten the material. The herringbone weave also adds to the uneven, vivid structure of the blazer. The quality of the fabric shines out of the piece.

Our DANIEL four-button waistcoat makes the perfect pairing. To match the classic details of the blazer, the waistcoat has welted pockets on the front and button size regulators on the back. You also have a choice of pieces for your bottom half in this same Italian herringbone fabric. Our FRED trousers have a regular fit and the SUNE pleated wide-cut trousers are brilliant for making more of a statement.

 

Each of the pieces are also made in a different fabric entirely, a coffee melange. This material is again delavé, but offers you an alternative colour scheme, deviating from those typically chosen for wedding attire. It’s the perfect choice for those who want a distinct wedding aesthetic.

WED IN WORKWEAR

 

Some prefer their wedding outfit to reflect more of their everyday style. Our NICOLAI informal 4-button blazer works brilliantly if you’re one of those people. This piece borrows design references from workwear, featuring patched on pockets and a single slit in the back. There’s also no lining or shoulder pads in this piece. The effect is understated cool.

 

Although the silhouette is laid back, the fabric is of the brilliant quality you expect from HANSEN Garments. For our favourite version of the piece, in our north sea colour, the blazer is made from Italian herringbone weave fabric once again. The material is woven with black and white yarns, adding depth and a rich texture to the piece.

We love this piece because of its versatility too. As a slow fashion brand, the wearability of the clothes we produce is paramount. You may wear the NICOLAI blazer on your big day, but what stops you from incorporating it into your everyday wardrobe afterwards? There’s no reason to leave it hanging. This is a piece you can keep enjoying, day after day.

 

Our KAJ casual waistcoat is available in this same fabric. When paired with the jacket, the styling elevates. The high neck drop of this piece is unusual, adding a quirk, an alternative aesthetic for wedding attire. This outfit also works brilliantly for members of the wedding party.

BREEZY SUMMER SUIT

 

What if you’re looking for a style which is somewhere in the middle? Our ANKER casual five-button blazer is the perfect compromise.

Once again, this piece is made from a blue delave fabric (can you sense a trend here?) which is lightweight and 100% linen. This gives the piece a wonderful, slightly wrinkled texture, making it perfect for summer. It’s very comfortable to wear.

 

In a similar style to our KAJ waistcoat, this piece has a high-cut lapel - an understated detail, but one that makes a big difference to the overall aesthetic. The patched on pockets inject the piece with workwear styling. The blazer also has shoulder pads for structure. So, now you know what we mean by the perfect compromise. Subtly, it knits together disparate suiting styles, coming together to form a stylish yet timeless piece.

Once again, we have trousers and waistcoats to match, giving you that perfect, unified look. Our KALLE casual classic vest is made in that same blue delave fabric. This piece has pointed fronts, making a striking yet subtle statement. The MADS loose fit trousers work brilliantly in contrast. They have a single pleat down both the front and the back, adding some structure to an otherwise relaxed fit item. Each of these design details come together to create a suit which is both individual and classic.

TIE THE KNOT

 

And finally, do you feel like all these subtle, muted tones don’t quite cut it for you? Try out our FREDERIK two-button blazer, cut in a lovely, pale blue colour. This piece is made from 100% Austrian linen making it extremely cool and comfortable to wear. It’s a brilliant piece for if your wedding will be set under the sun.

 

The piece has horn buttons, three buttons along the cuff, and two flap pockets on the front of the garment. It’s the perfect item to either dress up or down - whichever you prefer. Just add a tie if you want to keep it formal or wear with just a breezy white shirt underneath if you’re a casual kind of person.

If you do like the idea of adding a flurry of colour or pattern in your outfit, take a look at our Japanese printed ties from the SS20 collection. The ties are made from 100% Japanese cotton and produced here in Europe.

 

There are four designs, each of which features an intricate white print on a dark blue, subtle base colour. They’re timeless and contain just enough detail to add an element of intrigue to your suit, without being the star of the show. Our particular favourite? The wave pattern is beautifully delicate. If you pair this tie with the NICOLAI blazer, the white detailing illuminates the flecks in the herringbone print.
