The Best Man
Since 1927, Syd Silver has provided formal wear for weddings, galas, graduations and more. They carry both their own exclusive collections (Lusso, Optima, Millenia and Allure) and select styles from the leading designers of formalwear around the world. Each of their in-house brands are fabricated with luxurious, lightweight Italian wools, while offering unique aesthetic elements. This includes Lusso’s sleek fit and narrowed lapels, Allure’s prominent youthful but chic lines, and Optima’s fine surface-textured wool. Colours generally range from black to gray to white, with two to five buttons and sizes ranging from boy’s two up to men’s 60 (for most collections). The chain offers a number of specials for larger corporate events (discounts for groups of ten or more) and students save on tuxedo rentals for proms and graduations. For wedding parties of five or more that book their rentals at Syd Silver, the groom’s tuxedo rental comes free.

Prim and Proper
Outside their own collections, Syd Silver carries the latest formalwear from brands like Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Joseph Abboud and both Lauren and Chaps by Ralph Lauren. These outfits are generally more expensive and come with a wider range of aesthetic options, including full dress lapels and tail-coats. They also offer a substantial variety of formal accessories to complete the look, with dozens of shirts, footwear, top hats, canes and gloves to choose from.

Different Textures
While hats, gloves and shirts are generally limited to white, black or gray, the range of vests and ties is more copious. Check out the striped Windsor knot ties and pocket squares, colour-coordinated for wear with the faille collection of vests (including red, royal, champagne, platinum, silver and mocha). You can also find a variety of textured vests and ties, from patterned retro vests to the simpler silky smooth Herringbone and Bellagio collections.
