Your Wedding Can Still be Hipster Chic Without the Bowties and Suspenders

Hipster grooms, we have a problem with your uniform.

This bowtie and suspender trend that's plaguing weddings across the country has got to stop. You may think you look like this:

But in reality, you look more like this:

We get that by dressing like a slightly more chic version of your grandpa, you're broadcasting the fact that you're whimsical, sensitive... and a little ironic. You don't need the wedding industry telling you to wrap yourself up in some Italian-made black tailcoat of oppression, because you've got suspenders.

The next time you're at a hipster wedding, ask yourself this: How many of those groomsmen actually know how to tie their own bowtie? Chances are, everyone's wearing clip-ons, just like the 7-year-old ring-bearer.

Unless your bride has dreams of marrying an old-timey ragamuffin, save that outfit for your Newsies audition:

If you still want to embrace a casual retro look for your wedding day, consider one of these old-school alternatives:

1. Pinstripes

Whatever happened to pinstriped suits? They're classy, with a retro-vibe that both the Yankees and olden day gangsters love.

2. Chambray

This chambray shirt is casual and relaxed, but paired with a suit and tie (with a tie-bar!) this shirt is marriage material.

3. Bold Block Colors

Nobody's saying that it's easy to pull off a colored suit, but it's certainly more interesting than your average formal wear.

Just know your personal limits. Remember dad's prom pic?s

4. Mismatched Suit

You want to look whimsical? Nothing says you're breaking away from the boring old black tuxedo than a mix and match suit combo.

If you wear one of these hipster alternatives, you'll go from Steve Urkel to Stefan Urquelle in no time!
