The other week, I did a little experiment. I went through hundreds of APW real weddings, asking the question: What makes a suit look good? What types of accessories pair best with which suits? What suits go best with which colors? When do you wear brown shoes vs. black? Etc. etc. etc. I expected to come away from this deep dive with a concrete understanding of suiting “rules.” But when I was done, I discovered it came down to two (admittedly very important) things:
- Does the suit fit well?
- Does the person look comfortable in it?
