"You don't have to have a suit or tuxedo custom-made to guarantee a good fit. Buy one off the rack, then take it to a talented tailor for fine-tuning. What you wear at your wedding should become a wardrobe staple that you'll reach for again and again," says Downing.
"You're going to take your jacket off at some point, so it's crucial that what you're wearing underneath fits you to a T. I always recommend Ermenegildo Zegna's French-cuff shirts. White is a safe choice, but a pale-nude color is nice, too." Available at neimanmarcus.com.
