These shirts comes in different colors such as navy, gray, brown, mustard, teal, plum, wine, and forest green.
As for the lower part, depending on the groom’s choice, he can have a long twill breech which is usually baggy and comes with a button in front and a drawstring at the waist part as well cuffs. On the other hand, he can also have knee-length twill breeches instead. The knee-length twill breeches have cuffs that are tied just below the knee.
