What does the modern ethically-minded groom wear?
Morning dress is the traditional choice for the groom, but you may well want to choose something that reflects your individuality.
Conventionally, there is morning dress, the dinner jacket, lounge or modern suit. But these days, as wedding venues are no longer formal, dress codes have also eased up. Chinos or jeans, waistcoats or sports jackets - if you're having a rustic or a boho wedding day, then a morning suit just isn't going to work!
If you do go the more traditional route, a cost effective and ethical choice would be to hire a formal outfit. There's also a wide choice of men's formalwear hire shops which offer a good selection of outfits including kilts.
Alternatively you could search the charity shops, vintage boutiques and web auction sites for a more individual choice.
If you prefer to splash out on something special then seek out an eco-ethical retailer stocking suits and shirts made in 100% wool, linen or organic cotton from fairly traded sources, or even find a British tailor to hand design and make you a bespoke outfit.
