Attire for him

While we still haven't figured out out exactly what Calvin and the groomsmen will wear, Calvin knows that he will be looking ridiculously handsome in a tux. A classic tux, along the lines of this:

Or, if you are thinking more along the lines of how it looks in a wedding, something like this:

No hint of prom in this picture.

Check out the pocket square!

I don't know about you, but I love the look of a classic tux- and I'm really feeling the pocket square in place of a traditional boutonniere. A little internet digging came up with several good possibilities.

Custom pocket square from Beau Ties Ltd. at a pricey $28.

Silk pocket squares available in a whole rainbow of colors at a much easier to stomach $6.25.

Given that pocket squares really are just a square of fabric finished at the edges, it would be really easy to do is to make pocket squares myself.

Picture above and good directions are available here.

And, of course, if you are concerned about the pocket square remaining nicely folded in the pocket, you can always go this route:

Silk hanky card for all of the look with none of the hassle. ;-)

Are you doing anything to dress up the men's attire? Boutonnieres? Pocket squares? Please share what your plans are. :-)
