Sharp Dressed Man

With my ensemble mostly in place (I still need jewelry and shoes), JT and I are turning our attention to his wedding attire. We both think that it's completely ridiculous that women are expected to spend thousands of dollars on a dress that they will wear only once, and yet on the "biggest day of their lives," men are expected to wear an ill-fitting tux with all the comfort of a burlap straight jacket that they rented from the Men's Warehouse for $60.

It's not simply the fact that women are held to incredibly high standards of beauty that bothers's the fact that men aren't expected to follow suit (pardon the pun). JT is very much looking forward to being sharp dressed on our wedding day in a designer suit. And the plus side is that he will be able to wear it again and again!

I'm enjoying these options from Ted Baker right now:

When we start suit shopping, JT will give you the play-by-play, much like I did with my dresses.

  1. HA! I'm already planning on buying a sweet sweet suit:) I will eagerly await his words of wisdom even though what will look good on JT will probably not look good on my "larger" frame;)
