As Jeremy in Wedding Crashers so eloquently and enthusiastically exclaimed…. “Its Wedding Season!” I know it’s kinda hard to think about this given the chilly weather, and gross brown grass and dirty roads here in New England… But really, there are brides and grooms planning as we speaks for their spring, summer and fall weddings.
As a married man, as a groom, you know your role. Help when asked, otherwise stay out of it. But we do have an obligation (if given the opportunity) in some capacity when it comes to what we and the groomsman will be wearing.
With that, we want to focus on a local to us here in MA custom suiting business. The easy answer for some (and we can’t fault them necessarily) is a cookie cutter Men’s Wearhouse or Jos A. Bank type of suiting or tux. Sure I get it. But come on gents! This is your opportunity, take your boys on a suiting safari, an event, a boys night out – an experience to remember! And net a pretty dope suit you can wear again and again!
Boston’s 9Tailors offers up this exact suiting experience, all rolled up in a sartorial package like none other. Tucked along Lincoln St. 9Tailors’ exposed brick walls, loft style ceilings, leather chairs, and bar (stocked w/ local brews and a handful of scotches) allow the gentleman and his groomsman a comfy yet manly playground to customize an outfit or 2!
Scotch in hand? Ok good. Its time to grab a chair or post up to the vintage table top and begin the custom designing process of your suits. I mean literally everything, think, colors, patterns, fabric, buttons, lining, notch lapel, fit, did we mention patterns, ticket pocket? vent? the whole shabang! Make these YOUR suit(s). All while knowing, 9Tailors offers group/party discounts as well. Ensure proper fit with custom measurements from any of their talented staff, and you are good to go.
Did we mention you can pick your shirting as well? Yes of course you can. Summer wedding? Gingham it is! Classic and simple, a crisp white shirt it is! And of course anything in between.
So gents, congrats on taking the plunge – now lets make sure you look stunning on your big day! Also, make sure to tell Sam, or Michelle or Eboni that Life As A Gent sent ya!
