As grooms make the switch from rented tuxes to handpicked suits, they’re able to hold their own next to the bride like never before. “One of the most rewarding things is seeing the confidence a man has when a suit fits him,” says custom tailor Clifton Berry of Clifton Charles, in New York City. Here is Berry’s best advice for creating a custom look.

Get oriented. Think about the wedding’s location, season and time of day — and decide if the new duds are just for the I do’s or if you plan to wear them again. The fit and feel should match both his style and the event’s tone, whether it’s a Mad Men-esque suit with a skinny lapel for a sleek gallery gala or a lightweight morning coat for a daytime garden ceremony.

Get measured. To achieve the perfect fit, tailors may take up to 30 measurements. If you can’t make it in person, have your local dry cleaner size you up, or send in your best-fitting suit as a model.

Get personal. Have fun personalizing with special features like a unique lining (wild paisley, your wedding colors, etc.), your initials embroidered in the jacket, a coordinating bow tie or vest, or shirt studs and matching cuff links.
