Lots of grooms grapple with the decision of whether to buy or rent a tuxedo for the wedding. Another option that may not have occurred to you: having a suit custom-made. For a little more than the cost of some standard tuxedos, your groom can have a formal suit made-to-measure in the material of his choice, making his wedding attire one-of-a-kind. Not to mention he'll probably have more opportunity to wear this suit after the wedding than he would a tux.
We love Michael Andrews Bespoke (MAB's suits have been featured in Modern Bride and worn by chef Wylie Dufresne, of NYC's wd-50 restaurant, at his wedding and on last season of Top Chef). Other custom clothiers around the country include Ernesto Fine Custom Clothier, Nicholas Joseph and Jonathan Behr.—Betsy Goldberg, deputy editor, Modern Bride
