Hold on to your top hats, gents. Vera Wang is doing menswear.
Well, it's not a full collection but the queen of bridal dresses has joined forces with Men's Wearhouse to launch Black by Vera Wang.
Wang said in a press release that “For more than twenty years, I have shared my design vision with women around the world, so it is exciting to now have the opportunity to share that with men as well" and "With an exceptional reputation as one the largest men’s specialty retailers, Men’s Wearhouse was a natural retail partner for the Black by Vera Wang collection.”
Black will only initially have two tuxedo styles on offer to rent: a traditional black and a chic grey. Both have a slim fit, lightweight fabric, and will guarantee you'll look super dapper on any big occasion. Size-wise, the suit will come in standard, slim and big and tall fits. And will feature flat-front pants for both, and gros-grain ribbon detailing on the black tux. The tuxes are available starting April for the black version and August for the grey.
Rental and Vera Wang in the same sentence all feels a bit surreal, but really, how many men do you know who own their own tuxedo? This smart collaboration takes pressure off men regarding what to wear walking down the aisle and is ideal for the power brides who wants an all-Vera wedding.
