This gives me a rather unique insight into which styles are going to prove popular for 2014 and which trends will emerge as the years goes on. Obviously I have a good idea of which trends I would like to emerge, but what I would 'like' and what happens in reality is not always the same thing!
So for a change I will do two lists, one list of the trends I would 'Like' to see emerge throughout 2014 and another list for the trends I 'Expect' to see throughout 2014.
Like:1. Double Breasted.
I am a HUGE fan of a double breasted suit. And I think that the time is ripe for this classically tailored and British garment to be seen again at British Weddings.
2. Different Colours.
Whilst not being an advocate for 'fancy' wedding suits, I would really like to see a break from the usual blue, grey, black options normally chosen. Brown is a nice alternative but I would like to see the boundaries pushed more. What about Burgundy or Green?
What??? Jack Bunneys actually recommending fancy waistcoats?!? Well yes actually. But not brocade or swirl pattern, shiney, ivory, silver waistcoats. No, what about pure wool waistcoats, plain but in a wedding colour; pink, salmon or yellow?? I think it would be nice to see the return of the fancy waistcoat but done in a more classical way.
