When it comes to choosing what you should wear on your special day, most head towards a tux but you shouldn’t feel restricted to a classic tuxedo when there is so much you can do. If you picked up a copy of Volume 1 of Groom + Guy, these images will transport you back to the pages of The Tailored Tux, a spread where we introduced you to Carl Navè. We are very happy to say that our love affair with Carl and his work is as strong as it ever was!
