If your son has a special role in the wedding, say as a page boy or an usher, then you want him to look his very best and whilst high street shops can provide relatively cheap suits, there is almost always a compromise, either on the colour, quality or fit. However his role on the big day may only come once in a lifetime and you don’t want the photos to remind you of an ill-fitting suit or mismatching jacket and trousers when everyone else is dressed up to the nines. Let’s face it, it’s not often that you’ll get your boy into anything resembling a suit, so when the occasion arises you should grab it with both hands and make sure he’s the best dressed boy on the day!
