Pair Charles Tyrwhitt’s iconic shirts with morning suits, tuxedos or lounge suits of all shades. Alternatively, seek advice from wedding specialists Moss Bros., who have everything from tweed to linen options; or browse the signature suits that that add a modern twist to traditional British style at Hackett.
