Need convincing that tweed suits  are the way to go for your wedding? No problem. We are here to help convince you they are… because they are.


Wearing a tweed suit is something different. Different isn’t always good but on your wedding day you don’t want anyone wearing the same attire they would wear  for client meetings at work.  A tweed suit gives a sophisticated look and one that won’t be replicated in a thousand other weddings.

With a tweed suit you can get away with more colours and design patterns than with a regular suit. Tweed jackets have stood the test of time as to what can be considered elegant. When your grandchildren are looking at your wedding pictures and video you don’t want them laughing at the fashion sense. They probably will do that anyway but why not minimise that risk?



A good suit looks good. A fitted suit looks great. A good fitted tweed suit is perfection.

The distinction that comes with a fitted suit is only multiplied when it is tweed. Don’t ask us why, it’s just the way of the world. Matching tweed accessories also have a unique look that will ensure you look suave.

Whilst most men find it hard to match the enthusiasm of their partner in regards to wedding related issues,  the exception should be what the groom is going to wear. There is almost nothing as personal as the clothes we choose to wear. Numerous pictures will be taken on the day so there is nowhere to hide.  A fitted tweed suit looks sophisticated and ensures the groom looks right on the big day.  Selecting the right one is a chance to bond together.

If you are both trying to get in shape for your wedding look no further than tweed suits.  A good tweed suit provides a strong frame. Any weight issue you have won’t be as prominent with a good tweed suit cut out to your measurement. All Victor Valentine suits are cut to your exact body shape. We’ve perfected our art over years.

Obviously, you should do everything to be at your fittest. A fitted tweed suit just means less worry if you do struggle to reach the ‘perfect’ weight for the big day.

A Suit for All Weathers

Not everyone is fortunate enough to get married during great weather. You can book your wedding day for the spring or summer period and still get some bad luck. A good tweed suit, while not quite water resistant is somewhat water repellent. A tweed jacket compares favourably to most other blazers if caught in the rain.

For windy or cold conditions a tweed suit will provide the kind of warmth that very few other blazers and jackets can match. The woven strands of tweed provide insulation that is quite impressive.

Should you choose to get married during spring or summer and actually have the fortune of having a sunny day you will find that you won’t be any more uncomfortable in a tweed suit. The more modern variations of tweed are less bulky and would ‘suit’ a hotter day (pun not intended).


Tweed Wedding Accessories

There is nothing like tweed accessories. You only need to have a look at some of the tweed ties and bowties available. They have a texture that is just different. They are cool and unlike any other kind of accessory.

Just have a look at the gentleman below. The suit and accessories are in sync. Not every kind of suit does this with style.



Long Lasting

Purchasing a 3 piece tweed suit for your wedding will ensure you have clothing that will last for years. The option to wear it for special occasion years down the road without it falling apart will be there.

Even if the tweed suit is hired a long lasting impression has been made with your fashion sense. You will look back at your wedding pictures and videos with pride.
