Every groom wishes to look perfect on his wedding day. The fashion world has been evolving and doing its best to provide more sustainable options that aren’t only stylish but also good for the environment. Here are some of the top picks that will make you smart and sustainable!
The Ultra Suit by Tranzed could be the perfect green choice. According to the brand’s designers, the two-piece suit is not only waterproof but also has features like anti-odor, ultra-stretchable, wrinkle-free, and breathable fabric, and UV protection. The suit is sustainably created from recycled plastic bottles and coffee grounds and can be worn on numerous occasions. It smoothly combines form and function and is environmentally friendly.
Another way to go about it is to rent a suit for the occasion; it won’t only be pocket-friendly but will also be a healthier option for the environment. The Cornwall Suit Room is a great option in this case. According to Alan Walker from the Cornwall Suit Room, their company has been following an eco-friendly dry cleaning process, which helps keep the environment clean and increases the life of their suits as well. Minimizing their business’s impact on the environment has always been a key goal for them. Most of the waistcoats and neckwear in their collection are made by Heirloom Waistcoats and Anthony Formal Wear.
A groom’s outfit wouldn’t be complete without a wonderful shirt. Arthur & Henry’s organic cotton shirts are a great fit. Their cotton is sourced from certified Fairtrade organic farming organizations. All their shirts have horizontal bottom buttonholes to avoid splaying and are longer in length, so one doesn’t have to struggle with tucking them. One could never go wrong with a white, blue, or Chislet double cuff shirt with a fine herringbone weave for a traditional look or a white Oxford weave shirt with or without a button-down collar for a somewhat more laid-back appearance. For a touch of luxury, their signature shirt with understated orange trimming is a great option.
Brands’ Take on Sustainability
Today, every brand is making a conscious effort to become more eco-friendly. Be it through changing their process or the raw material they use, Theory’s Good Collection is a prominent example of it. For a long time now, their goal has been to alter the way they create their garments and make their hallmark textiles 100% traceable by 2025. They source their raw materials from mills that have similar goals and provide high quality.
