The groom and the cravat

Whether you're attending a multitude of weddings this summer or you're the lucky groom-to-be himself, Jennifer Meguro of Cravat Club shares her tips for making a memorable appearance (that doesn't involve gyrating your hips to Gangnam Style)

These days, grooms are being more experimental with their attire as weddings become more and more inventive and original. Every couple wants their wedding to be remembered, which is why themed weddings, such as vintage and boho are increasing in popularity. 

When it comes to attire, the gentleman's cravat could be that killer accessory that transforms your wedding suit into a vintage classic. There are two main ways to tie a cravat for a groom, the traditional wedding cravat tie method, or, which we think looks best, the day cravat method:

1. Start with one blade longer than the other around you neck.

2. Wrap the longer blade once around the shorter blade.

3. Bring it round to the front

4. Up and through the neck loop

5. Down to the front

6. Fluff and adjust accordingly

We offer matching pocket squares with a selection of our woven and printed silk cravats, and you can also think about mixing the designs and colours for you and your ushers, father-of-the-bride and best man.

Our most popular cravat designs for weddings have been Marsden, Adonis, Oscar, Aldan and Owain. Which one would you go for?
