Will You Be an Artfully Disheveled Groom?
You know the guy. He’s nonchalant. He’s hip. And even though he puts zero time into his appearance, his look always appears calm, cool and calculated. Pulling off this disheveled style isn’t easy, but it does help to have the goods. And by goods, I’m referring to one of my favorite new brands: the aptly named Artfully Disheveled.
In the brand’s own words, being Artfully Disheveled in your style is to dress as if one puts little thought into his choices. The Artfully Disheveled man appears to be sloppy in his attire choices, when in reality; premeditated measures were taken to create a particular look. In other words, it means looking slick even though everyone around you is convinced that you just rolled out of bed.
I recently had the opportunity to sample a few of the line’s top sellers: The Academy and The Sharps. I was struck by two things. First, how much more my wife paid attention to me while I was wearing them. But also (and more importantly), how many grooms are going to snatch these up for rehearsal dinner attire. See, the problem with rehearsal dinners is that they’re a tricky mix between casual and formal events. Black ties are too much, but a golf polo isn’t enough. Lucky for you, A.D.’s tie collection boasts some real treasures. If you’re currently on the tie hunt for yourself or your groomsmen, I strongly encourage you to check out the line.
And not that I needed any further convincing to give A.D. the seal of approval, I learned about another feather in their cap. They’ve recently teamed up with Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones in support of his Bowtie Cause which supports people going through life-threatening diseases.
And now for the goods:
Finally, if you need a refresher course on how to properly tie a tie (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?) there’s always this gem:
