Unless we’re talking marriage equality, the focus is usually on the bride when it comes to weddings. But grooms are getting more involved in the planning process because they have some skin in the game – their money.
Whether your groom is a list-maker/task-taker or a “tell me what time to show up and what to wear” guy, gifts for the groomsmen are his responsibility. Gone are the days of flasks and steins. Just like every other aspect of the big day, gifts are now personalized and customized.
If your groom is on the hunt for gifts, suggest that he check out Capital Custom Clothiers, a fine menswear shop now open in Occoquan just across from Madigan’s Restaurant. Not only do Marcus and Pam Reed have a great selection of ties – including bow ties – they also carry some awesome cuff links.
Any man who owns a suit and a nice, tailored shirt should have a proper pair of cuff links to complete the look. Have a rabid Redskins fan in the bridal party? Get him some cuff links with the team’s logo (or any pro team’s logo for that matter, as well as major colleges). Is your best man a golf nut, music lover, or comic book fan? They’ve got cuff links for those recreational pursuits. And in this political town, Capital Custom Clothiers is non-partisian with cuff links representing the two parties’ symbols.
Practical and personal – cuff links make a great gift for the groomsmen. Capital Custom Clothiers is located at 203 Washington Street, Suite D. To learn more about their men’s accessories, custom made suits and tuxedos, along with their custom rental line, visit their website or call (703) 497-4211.
