2. Three-Piece Suits

The elegant and sophisticated 3-piece suit à la Simon Baker in The Mentalist is a great alternative to the classic black-tie one. Made up of a blazer, vest and pants, your groomsmen have the option of leaving the vest out for the later half of the wedding for a different look.

3. Vests

Although the weather in Singapore may not be suit-friendly most of the time, your groomsmen can still look stylish by opting for vests instead of blazers.

So go ahead and dress your boys in these, and watch them channel their inner sexy. Suspenders also make a cute addition to your ring-bearer’s outfit as well.
