The Groom’s Tuxedo: Rat Pack Style

posted in:

This post is for a very special groom, whom I almost ran off the road last week!  Oy!  So sorry about the crazy lady driving experience!

For grooms like you, who have truly mastered the “Frank Sinatra/Rat Pack” swagger, here are some really great looks that you can wear for your wedding attire.


I must admit that I am such a fan of dinner jackets.   They were very popular in the 50s and 60s, and they still have plenty of life today.


I also love the look of long ties with tuxedos.  Colorful ties are so fashionable, but this “all black” tuxedo look is timeless.


This midnight blue tuxedo is “working it” too.  If you can pull this look off (and your mama is okay with it), try this hip tuxedo without a tie.


Here are a couple of “updated” rat pack looks.

Oh Jay-Z honey!  If Beyonce doesn’t treat you right, call me!


I love the 50s/60s “rat pack” style for a groom and his groomsmen.  Is it a good look for your groom?  Let me know.

For the groom I almost ran off the road — The well-known members of the rat pack are Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford.

Love & Soul Always, Kawania
