What is trendier than putting on a suit featuring a houndstooth, tweed, or plaid fabric? How about finding it vintage or second-hand!

What is more retro than adding a bow tie to your look? Choosing to wear a bow tie opens up a world of different styling options! The color and pattern of the bow tie can coordinate with the color of the entire suit, match other accessories, or stand out on its own. We are loving quirky and unique patterns that show off the groom's individual style!

Microprints are having their moment in 2022! Small patterns add instant luxury to a groomswear look, and they're one of the most wearable trends on our list- appearing on jackets, ties, trousers, waistcoats and everything in between. In order to nail this trend, the key is to make the microprint the star and to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Try pairing a microprint blazer with a plain coloured trouser and waistcoat, or make the microprint an accent with a pocket square or tie!
