As much as we love the celebrations, finding the right summer wedding suits can be tricky. Balancing breathability and comfort with dress code appropriate style isn’t always easy in the summer months. The solution? Formal looks in lightweight fabrics.

Every year we’re seeing more and more, great options in lightweight fabrics that are perfect for summer wedding suits. Lighter wools, linen blends, and even cotton suits are a totally fair game (as long as your style is on point).

Let’s break down some top tier wedding looks that’ll keep you cool and comfy all day long; plus catch the eye of a bridesmaid or two.

A light tan suit, chambray shirt, and some bright summer accessories. The formula is simple. It’s summer, so feel free to break some of the old school style rules as long as your look has a consistent theme.

Instead of matching the belt to brown shoes, we’re feeling the blue here. A lighter blue belt compliments the darker chambray shirt perfectly. A crisp white pocket square and killer shades top off the suit with timeless class.

Summer wedding suits can be that easy.

Versatility = key.

Especially when it comes to hot summer days. The great thing about this outfit is that it goes from button-up ceremony to dance floor in 2 seconds flat.

Bold checks and double monk strap shoes are perfect to start the day off. Lose your blazer later on and enjoy the freedom of the polo underneath. Win win.

As much as we’re seeing many summer wedding suits head towards more casual dress codes, you’ll still encounter a more formal event from time to time.

Don’t worry — you can reserve your heavy black tux for fall. This lightweight cream option is actually cotton (though you could never tell by looking).

Great details like a single button jacket with peak lapels ensure you’re just as dapper as the guys sweating it out in their all season tuxes.

We love pairing a light blue shirt underneath for a bit of contrast that stays true to the summer vibe.

Yes, you can wear a t-shirt with your summer wedding suit. No, it can’t be a vintage band tee.

Here’s how to do it right:

  • Pick a classic suit in a blue or neutral tone, that’s not too boxy on the shoulders.
  • Style like you normally would — formal belt, dress shoes, watch, etc.
  • Now find a solid colour tee (this is essential) in a luxe fabric with some micro texture to it. A linen blend, premium cotton, or even a woven tee will do the trick.
  • Make sure your tee color contrasts from your suit. This is still a wedding — you’re not a club promoter. And on that note: please, no chain necklaces.
  • Tuck the tee in. Again… still a wedding.

Style Tips

Most men can’t get away with linen suits or the chino/ short-sleeve collar combination at the office. Business still requires proper attire- no matter how scorching the summer heat. For men bound to this timeless tradition, we offer a range of polished suiting by Tiger of Sweden. Common sense dictates that short of showing up almost nude, an investment in lighter shades assists in keeping internal temperatures low. Tans, pale blues and dove greys repel heat and wear extra effortlessly. If the repertoire currently includes subtle solids, patterns like the classic windowpane check are an exemplary option- professional, distinct and full of corporate character.


Welcome to the laboratory of the new man, welcome to “LAB.-Pal Zileri”. Consider LAB the son of the Pal Zaileri line as it is designed for a man who remembers and knows the past, but is able to escape from the strict rules of old style. A man who no longer wants to feel shut up in a uniform, but wants to express himself through refined eccentricity, chosen for the pleasure of not going unnoticed. These latest arrivals for summer offer all the great tailoring you’ve come to expect from LAB in some fresh styles that are sure to separate you from the generic mass population.

There are some things that transition well from Winter to Summer, your suit isn’t one of them. Most Fall/Winter suits are made of heavier fabrics and come fully lined to help keep you insulated during those treacherous winter months. That is definitely not what you need during the Summer months. In summer you want a suit that will be light weight, breaths and keeps you cool as you galavant around town on your trendy speed cycle. These suits from Tiger of Sweden are great cotton and linen blends and come 1/4 lined making them extremely light weight and great for the office or even a casual summer wedding. The light colour pallet is on trend with this season and offers the wearer great versatility to mix and match. The best part about these suits is that they can be worn together or be deconstructed and worn as separates. Match the blazer with a nice pair of jean or throw on a great polo to match the “chino” like trousers.
