Wedding Makers: Garrison Opens A Bespoke Groomswear Shop
Grooms can now receive the royal treatment too when it comes to choosing their wedding day attire. This fall, one of Canada’s leading tailors, Garrison Bespoke, opened Garrison Weddings, a bespoke shop exclusively for grooms and groomsmen. Located in Toronto’s iconic King Edward Hotel and the first of its kind in North America, Garrison Weddings offers private, by-appointment-only experiences where grooms and their bride-to-be or their groomsmen sip champagne and scotch while perusing the largest selection of fabrics and formal wear accessories for men in Canada.
At Garrison Weddings, “guys can talk about what they like and don’t like and how they want to feel on their wedding day,” says Garrison President, Michael Nguyen. “It’s the ultimate experience for the groom, but created in a way where any man, regardless of his income level or where he is getting married, can come in and feel really comfortable.”
Throughout a five-fitting design process, the groom’s personal stylist helps him select fabrics, color schemes and details to complement his skin tone, personal style and wedding theme, while one of Garrison Bespoke’s Master Tailors ensures the perfect fit. Garrison Bespoke suits and tuxedos are designed to make the groom look sharp for the walk down the aisle, while being flexible enough to let him bust some moves on the dance floor at the reception and carry the bride over the threshold.
Stylish grooms can also shop for statement-making accessories like Albert Thurston suspenders (worn by every James Bond in history), Drake’s London bow ties as worn by Kanye West at his wedding to Kim Kardashian, and the Hollard & Sherry vintage barathea shirt and Barneys New York stud sets worn by Barack Obama when he married Michelle.
From a white 3-piece suit for a Gatsby-themed wedding to a lightweight suit for a warm day, here are eight great wedding day looks created by Garrison Weddings.
