Welcome, ladies and gentleman, I'm Brian Swan, of Right Hand Man Image Consulting, your style expert today, here at Nick's Menswear in Chandler, Arizona, going over a topic for a lot of you out there that may be coming up, weddings. Groomsmen, grooms, what do you wear? Can you both wear the same color? Should it be different? Let's go over those simple things and make sure we get you looking great on that aisle. To begin, when it comes to your groomsman and your groom, you wanna think about color. Color is the key here, because if you choose the right colors, as far as how to wear different suits together, it can be done, and it will look great. So you can see with our two example today, the color is grey, that is a basis color. Now, the reason why we choose grey, it looks great, very appropriate, it can be very formal as well, but at the same time, you have another color to introduce, which is purple. So you can see, between the two, one has a darker colored purple, one has a lighter colored purple. Now with your groom, obviously as a groom you want to stand out a little bit. You don't wanna look like your groomsmen because it is your day. So you can see we've got him dressed with a darker tone great, but with a lighter colored purple. To tie in the group together, you pull in a lighter colored grey with a darker color purple. So with those two contrasts playing off each other, you look like you're a group, you're still together, but you're still showcasing your man's big day. Again, that a simple as it goes. I'm Brian Swan, of Right Hand Man Image Consulting, here at Nick's Menswear, until next time, we'll see you soon.
