The term Morning Wear (or Morningwear / Morning Suit depending upon your preference) refers to a style of outfit reserved for weddings and other formal occasions. Several Morning Wear options are available and, between them, they are the most popular types of wedding outfit chosen by a Groom for himself and his Groomsmen in the UK today.


Essentially, there are five main types of Morning Wear available on the market, each providing a formal appearance, but with very differing styles. The five types of Morning Wear are outlined below.



Morning Wear : Tailcoats


A knee length jacket that tapers away from the mid-rift towards the hips, thus providing the ‘tailed’ appearance. This style of morning wear features normal suit lapels, typically one or two buttons, and is commonly available in black, dark grey, light grey and navy blue. read more...



Morning WearPrince Edward Suit


A ¾ length jacket with no tapering that ends midway between the hip and the knee. With normal suit lapels and three or four buttons, the Prince Edward is available in a wide range of colours and materials, from traditional black and navy wool blends, through to purple crushed velvet and even grey mohair options. read more...



Morning WearFrock Coats


A knee length, double breasted jacket that has no tapering and simply runs straight from the base of the lapels down to the bottom of the jacket. With normal suit lapels accompanied by 3 to 5 buttons on each breast, it is available in more colours than any other morning wear and both plain and fancy patterned jackets are readily available across the UK. read more...



Morning Wear : The Nehru Jacket


A ¾ jacket, similar to the Prince Edward, whose bottom finishes mid-way between hip and knee, the Nehru is available in both single breasted and double breasted versions. What separates this style of morning wear apart from its colleagues is the collar. Short and upturned in appearance, the one to two inch collar also features a single button found at the neck providing a modern, contemporary look. read more...



Morning WearLounge Suits


The morning wear that everyone will recognise instantly is the lounge suit, also known simply as a suit. With normal lapels and available in single or double-breasted versions, the suit jacket has no tapering and finishes at the hip. Typically featuring 3 to 5 buttons on each breast, the suit is widely available in a multitude of colours. read more...
