A wedding suit that'll work just as well on your 10th anniversary dinner.

I’m getting married in less than a month. We’re having a simple civil marriage at city hall but I don’t know where to begin in buying a suit and shoes for the ceremony. HELP!
I don’t care whether you’re getting married at City Hall or St. Patrick’s Cathedral—dude, you’re getting married. You need a suit! A dark suit that’s made well enough, and cut classically enough, to wear on both your wedding night and your 10th anniversary dinner. I recommend a two-button, medium-weight worsted wool in navy, though charcoal would also do. You’ll find plenty of great options in our Tailored Shop, from brands like Martin Greenfield, Corneliani, Belvest, Mr. Brown by Duckie Brown, and more. Pair it with a crisp white spread-collar dress shirt; a slim, understated silk tie; pair of dark brown wingtips; and, because dressed up need not mean dressed boringly, a colorful pair of socks. As Eliot Spitzer might add, just be sure to take them off as your wedding night progresses…

Have a style dilemma we can address (and — who knows — possibly even solve)? Drop us a line at manual@gilt.com, or holler at us via the Twitters: @GiltMAN.
