How My Boyfriend and I Custom-Designed Matching Suits For a Wedding

In the past, I’ve coordinated wedding-guest looks with a partner simply by matching my dress to his tie. In my experience, the task can be frustrating – especially when some dudes couldn’t quite grasp the concept of color clashing – but appearing in sync with your date is possible. Never did I consider the idea of his-and-her matching suits until I scrolled past an Indochino ad on Instagram and completely fell in love with a powder-pink blazer-and-miniskirt combo, replete with a modest leg slit and styled with metallic pointed-toe booties. Maybe it was my Barbiecore inclination, but I immediately had to have it.

I’ve worn suits before, but never one molded to my every curve, with my measurements taken into consideration.

As the number one made-to-measure retailer in North America, offering clients quality, bespoke tailoring at their fingertips in more than 50 showrooms across North America, Indochino is at the forefront of personalization in retail – and the price point is more affordable than high-end luxury, with suits of the same caliber starting at $549. It takes only three weeks for a garment to arrive at your doorstep after having your pick from an extensive range of fabrics, cuts, and colors.

While my boyfriend and I chose to design our suits in person at the NYC flagship store on Madison Avenue, you can also make all your selections online as an easy alternative. This option has established the brand as a go-to for many a groomsman. Even if the bridal party is limited to wearing navy, for example, there are an incredible amount of ways to achieve the look. You can choose a jacket with one vent at the back or two, decide on any number of buttons below the lapel, and even monogram the inner lining. Believe me when I say the options get far more involved from there.
