In the past couple weeks we've introduced you to ties that don't suck and boutonnieres with mega personality. And now, thanks to Duchess Clothier, groom outfits have gone from "which rental suit would you like?" to almost as many styles and variations as there are wedding dress options. (…As it should be!) Duchess Clothier, with locations in both Portland and San Francisco, was the preferred vendor of several previous offbeat couples before they ever became an official sponsor. But this was a match just waiting to happen for us all! That three piece suit of pure sex you see pictured to the left? That's just a HINT of the awesome to be found from Duchess. So, suit-loving fashion hounds anywhere along the gender spectrum, listen up: if you're finding it difficult to get your hands on a suit that makes you feel like a badass on your wedding day, you are going to FREAK OUT over this post.
