We can't deny our love of a good black suit, but navy blue has some serious sartorial swagger.
Here are three ways your beau can wear it well:
SHAPE SHIFT: Team this classic shade with an equally classic shape in the form of a tailcoat. Give it a modern spin with shorter tails and he won't feel like he's playing dress-ups.
HUE'S WHO: Encourage him to try blue on blue, or dress his groomsmen in differing hues for a cohesive colour combination.
TOUCH POINTS: Bring texture and visual interest to his ensemble by selecting embossed fabrics or materials with a slight sheen.Gallery: Grooms in The NavyBen (left) wears three-piece woollen suit and cotton shirt by Barkers, tie by Working Style, leather belt from Country Road, Citizen watch from Stewart Dawsons, leather shoes from Barkers, Addison (right) wears cotton suit and shirt and canvas loafers from Topman, bow tie from Munns.
