Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

Slaters’ Statement Collection – September Wedding Style

September is often considered a bit of a transition month for style, summer fashion seems a little outdated but it’s not quite time to break out the Autumnal colours yet. So with that in mind, we would recommend that a September groom shifts his focus from colour to pattern.  

Slaters’ statement collection has bold prints at its core, and is the perfect option for those transitional months where you just can’t pick a colour of the season.

The main print we’d recommend for September is a check, Slaters’ collection of checked suits are available in various colours, and range from being super bold, to a little more subtle, so whatever your style, you can make a patterned suit work for you.

Alternative suits for the groom for your rustic, festival or vintage wedding.


By Kate Beavis


So often we see amazing new dresses for the bride and even bridesmaids but what about something different for the groom? With more couples choosing an alternative wedding, whether it be boho, festival or vintage, getting a suit to match the look can be a tricky one.

Let us introduce you to 20th Century Chap, a vintage inspired menswear collection aimed at the dapper gent or the hipster groom.  Think Don Draper cool, with a bit of Peaky Blinders mixed in, with pieces that are closely based on the early designs from the 1930s-1950s.

Men are ditching the 'hire' option and going for a suit they can wear again and again


Britain’s biggest independent menswear brand with stockists across the UK has reported a spike in sales of lounge suits as grooms ditch something borrowed for something blue (to keep) when it comes to their wedding outfit.

Now determined to enjoy the wedding shopping experience as much as the bride-to-be, men are steering away from hired top hat and tails and choosing to buy sharply tailored suits instead with vivid blues the favoured colour.

Douglas​ said more grooms were investing in a suit they could keep with many also treating their best men and ushers to their own suits as gifts for helping out on their big day.
