Those of you who read Offbeat Home have heard about my husband's scandalous love affair with Pinterest. He's been pinning like a fiend for the last six months, and he's got some stuff pinned that I thought might be of interest to Offbeat Grooms who are just starting down their process of “I think I don't want a tux, but then what DO I want?” Here, courtesy of my husband's Pinterest board, are a few ideas.

Comments on Offbeat groom gear ideas I stole from my husband’s Pinterest

  1. Love this! I love the hat in photo #5 and the mustache in the last picture. My sweetie would love this, too. I’ll have to show him.

  2. Well I know he won’t log on here so I think it falls to me to share my groom’s awesome outfit:

    That gorgeous jacket is a Gothic Lolita Prince Style jacket from fanplusfriend:

    It takes a while to receive things from them because they’re in China and make most things to order (even if you’re a standard size) but the quality is decent for the price and the styles are fabulous! I got jealous of his awesome coat and had to order a similar one for myself (in purple and without the ruffles and buttons but otherwise same idea). Order at least 2 months ahead of time, preferably 3.

    • Fabulous! Also, I am jealous that your husband’s hair is better conditioned than mine. *fawn*

      • He spends more time and effort on his hair than I do on mine! Partly that’s just because mine is straight so it’s easier to deal with 🙂

  3. http://flic.kr/p/9VAFVC – is my husband in his chocolate brown morning coat, brown pinstripe pants, houndstooth vest with blue satin lapel,striped tie, and a bright blue leather tophat. Oh, and he has his cane I got him from Ren Fest.

    http://flic.kr/p/9VxNXc – is the top hat in detail. The people we got them from, boarsheadleather.com, are a super awesome mom and pop operation. Mostly mom.

  4. I’m in the wedding industry and am perpetually putting together my condo so I have a good excuse for being on Pinterest (excuse, pfft) but was shocked to discover my boyfriend signed up and started using it too.

    I have to say, it was pretty cute when he started pinning to his “My Style” board… and let’s not even get started on how adorable it is that he has a “PE” board with all his favorite workout gear.

    I am going to send him this, maybe he and your hubby can share pins.

    Gotta love confident men not at all afraid to head right into girl territory!

  5. Oh yessssss. I do usually read Offbeat Home, but missed that post in the blur of holiday retail job and graduating college. My fiance doesn’t have a Pinterest, but I keep a board on mine for ideas for his wedding outfit. This post (and Andreas’ board) make me soooo happy. It’s hard to find alternatives for the groom to wear!

  6. yeah i’m afraid i’m going to have to blame Andreas for the fact me and a friend started a joint guy’s fashion pinboard… which now has more followers than any other of my boards lol. even if my groom-to-be isn’t that interested in doing the research i’ve found it helpful to start visualizing what might look good on him!

  7. Andreas has some ROCKIN’ style – thank you for sharing, Ariel! I would totally swoon over any guy dressed in that Kit Stolen style – and most of the others too! I am definitely getting that first vest for someone special. Really LOVE the hair & moustache combo in the last photo.

  8. I also follow Andreas on Pinterest, haha. I repinned the Alexander McQueen one a few weeks ago, love it. The one above that with the dreads is actually the inspiration for my own suit. I basically want that, but in brown and cream, with a deep purple ascot, and bronze accessories instead of silver. Working with a tailor online to make that happen. Thanks or sharing these, and thanks Andreas for some great pins.

    • Shawn: I demand (DEMAND!) pictures of this outfit once it’s done. 🙂
