Friar Tux celebrated the Grand Re-Opening of their newly remodeled store in Glendale, California last month with a Ribbon Cutting filled with fashion, friendors, food and fun! Friar Tux is also gleaming with this month’s publications. First, A Pre-Wedding Studio Shoot Inspired by NYFW on Wed Vibes. The couple looked chic and sophisticated with the bride in a fashionable jumpsuit and the groom rocking an all-black look in a Black Notch Lapel Performance Tuxedo by Michael Kors. Then Friar Tux was published in Style My Pretty with this Classic and Romantic Wedding in California with Touches of Warm Jewel Tones. Friar Tux loves how the groomsmen pop against the orange colors in their black tuxedos and the groom in a green suit coat. By having the groomsmen in all-black looks and then the groom keeping the black pants but pairing with the Green Notch Lapel Suit Coat gives the whole party a fun style moment while keeping with the summer Spanish vibes.
