There’s nothing worse than feeling like you undercooked your outfit at a formal event. But doing it right doesn’t have to be an effort. Here are our top tips for Event Dressing.
Investing in a quality suit is something no man will ever regret. Being ready for any formal event gives you the confidence to say yes more often and show everyone who you really are.
Aquila’s suiting combines the best of traditional artisan techniques with the latest tailoring technology. Each suit is hand crafted in Europe from 100% Superfine marino wool. Sourced from world renowned Italian mills in Biella and Tuscany, our quality fabrics are selected and paired with the finest linings and trims to create the kind of suiting you’d expect from Aquila.
The modern soft construction of our complete range of sophisticated tailored garments gives you effortless style and comfort – something you can’t put a price on. We update our styles and colours every season so you can stay on trend, though our classic European heritage ensures our suits will stand the test of time. For a wedding, choose an Aquila suit like Spencer Pant and Blazer in ink, or for a smart but casual feel on race day, the Bailey Pant and Blazer is a must.
With formal shirts, complementing your suit is key, and we recommend keeping it simple to avoid an embarrassing clash. Go for a classic formal shirt like Aquila Arkin White, Aquila Camden White or Aquila Detroit Sky.
When it comes to shoes for weddings and important formal events, nothing says sophisticated style like patent leather shoes. A classic patent leather shoe is crafted from calf leather and is finished with a breathable synthetic film to give the shoe a high gloss finish. Aquila Bronson Patent Black is a great example. Keep your shiny side up with regular care, cleaning with a damp rag them buffing with a soft cotton cloth.
Here’s where you can add another layer of character to your look – these finishing touches can make all the difference. Choosing a slimline tie like Aquila AT022 Navy or AT025 Navy will help bring your whole ensemble together. Add a classic tie bar for extra style. Embellish with a versatile belt like Aquila Dent or Grundy Tan and finish with a neatly folded silk pocket square (fold, then iron it under a cloth for a sharper crease).
