Good Grooming...One for the Guys

For guys with style, putting a wedding ensemble together doesn’t always start at the tux rental shop.

A trend we're seeing is that more and more grooms are stepping out of the traditional template and suiting up their own handsome tailored threads.

From made-to-measure suits to colorful pocket squares, dapper dudes are stepping it up and looking sharp (afterall, it’s their big day too).

So, where does the fashionable gent go for a winning look? Retailers like Julius in Sacramento ( and Patrick James in Sacramento (, along with custom clothier like Navin's (, have excellent track records outfitting grooms in quality suits and ties.

Another shopping resource grooms are taking full advantage of is the wonderful Web.

Online stores like Fine and Dandy Shop ( carry a variety of slick accessories, like ties, bowties, ascots and handkerchiefs, at reasonable prices. Plus, they also blog, offering fantastic tips on dressing and current trends, recently posted a lookbook for visual reference.

Fine and dandy, indeed.
