HC groom

Afternoon Ladies and Gents,

It’s no secret that the majority of the time our boho pages are filled with ideas and inspiration dedicated to all those future brides who visit our site because, lets face it, it’s usually us ladies who do most of the research when planning a wedding. Now we’re not saying men are lazy because it’s not really about that. 9 times out of 10, the men in our lives don’t really get a look in because once that ring is on our finger, we tend to go on a wedding research spree – and why not! It’s kind of an unwritten rule that in most cases the ladies do the research and present all their ideas to their other halves. A discussion then takes place and a decision is made. However, there is one thing that us ladies should never take the lead on and that is our man’s suit. What your beau chooses to wear should (in our opinion) be down to them, after all we don’t expect them to get involved in what we wear so why should we dictate to them!

With this in mind our post today is dedicated to all those sexy grooms out there (that means all of you) that are still on the hunt for your wedding day attire and are perhaps looking for a bit of quirky luxury at an affordable price.

Allow us to introduce you to Hawes & Curtis…..

HC ties

Traditional Jermyn street shirt maker, Hawes & Curtis, has been crafting luxury shirts and formal wear for discerning gentlemen since 1913. This exclusive brand has maintained its impeccable heritage and continues with the same exacting standards established over a century ago. Today Hawes & Curtis is universally respected and offers a range of shirts and accessories which would be perfect for grooms and best men on their incredibly special day.

Hawes & Curtis’ Formal shirts are crafted from the finest two-fold-cotton and are available in four flattering fits. If you require a white or cream shirt for traditional wedding attire, this is the range for you. If your wedding is a relaxed, contemporary affair, the Fashion range provides a large selection of 100% cotton shirts featuring stunning prints. Experimenting with patterns is a fantastic way for grooms to express their unique style on their wedding day. For example, if you are having a country wedding, a shirt with an understated gingham check, styled with a waistcoat or a tweed jacket creates a refined, rural look.


Hawes & Curtis offers an extensive range of luxurious accessories for men. The collection consists of an assortment of classic and contemporary pieces to complete your wedding ensemble. The ties are exquisitely crafted from pure silk and are available in a variety of beautiful colours and patterns. As an alternative to traditional ties, contemporary silk knitted ties will create a stylish, current look. Hawes & Curtis also has a selection of suave silk bow ties.
