THURSDAY THREADS – VINTAGE GROOM STYLE

Thursday October 20 2011.

One for the Bijou boys today on the blog with some vintage groom style’s to inspire all the men in your wedding party.  

This summer lovely photographer Natalie Sternberg (who you will have seen on here before) was invited to photograph the Goodwood Revival.  The Revival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s that relives the glory days of Goodwood Motor Circuit. Absolutely everyone attends in vintage dress but it is the men’s style that I want to share with you today.  Vintage is still such a key inspiration for weddings but all too often the groom, father of the bride and ushers lack the same pizzazz as the Bridal party.  However I am certain these amazing photos will inspire your vintage groom style to ensure that is not the case.  

A key style tip is not forget the importance of a hat in getting a vintage inspired look right.

Light trousers, dark jacket and striped tie scream of sporting gentlemen charm – a classic, vintage summer look for Grooms.

Bijou Grooms do not be afraid to leave the jacket behind and rock a waistcoat with rolled up sleeves.

Father’s of the Bijou Bride and Groom should not be left in the shadows, carry the vintage vibe through their outfit selection too.  I love these amazing pattern clash looks Natalie spotted at the Goodwood Revival, first up bold stripes with a flower print cravat.

Finally let’s not forget the young blood in your Bijou wedding party, why not give your little ushers a stylish vintage Barrow Boy inspired look.
