Here at Anthony formal wear we are finding that a lot of our wedding parties are choosing to have dinner suit weddings. Therefore a number of our Grooms want something that little bit more special than the classic black dinner suit to make themselves stand out. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the classic black tuxedo or dinner suit. Its smart, its elegant, its timeless and it looks like your entering a room full of James Bonds!

Having a made-to-measure suit for your wedding can help you achieve that wow factor. You know the weird comment that your Bride made about knowing her dress was 'the one' well having a made-to-measure suit can give you the same feeling. To know that your suit will make you look and feel the best dressed you've ever felt. The expression 'like a million dollars' comes to mind.

Classic black velvet

The black velvet dinner suit can been worn by anyone of any age. It is a timeless 'go to' for evening wear. Even Prince William has been able to wear his twice this year!

Blue velvet wedding suit

For those of you that fancy something that isn't black but are still 'lovin' the velvet' how about a rich dark navy suit as seen at The Oscars, Emmys and The Golden Globes.

& now for something completely different...

I think when it comes to different no one summed it up better this year than Daniel Craig at the Premiere of No Time To Die, his last outing as Bond. Who would have expected this? The ultimate character to which we all associate the classic black dinner suit to wear a vibrant pink velvet suit! But as always Bond looked amazing.

You don't have to go to the extreme of Daniel Craig in his pink velvet. We can offer more subtle ways such as a dark green, burgundy, royal blue or even a camouflage velvet.
