WEDDING TUXEDOS + SUITS: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CUSTOM SUIT

WHERE TO START

Custom wedding tuxedos + suits make the wedding planning process special for both members of the happy couple. We believe the suit wearing member of the wedding should be able to have a custom experience when shopping and choosing a wedding tuxedo or suit.  This is their special day too and they deserve the same personalized service as the bride. To start, chose the right store.  Leonardo 5th Avenue  in Winter Park, FL offers a custom experience to the wedding tuxedo + suit buying process.  To learn more, we interviewed the owner, Leonardo.

CREATING AN EXPERIENCE

Leonardo 5th Avenue is one of the leading and most recognized companies in the luxury menswear industry. For example, custom wedding tuxedos, suits and attire, special occasion and business apparel.  The first store opened in the 1970’s. After that they opened 12 locations, including Winter Park, FL. We asked Leonardo, “How are you unique from other men’s fashion brands and stores?” He replied, “Our unparalleled high-end shopping experience”. To clarify, your experience includes expert advice from fashion stylists. In addition, access to a full bar so you may sip on your favorite spirit or caffeinated beverage while you shop.

YOUR CUSTOM WEDDING TUXEDO, YOUR WAY

On your wedding day, you want to feel comfortable in your suit.  In other words, you don’t want to be fidgeting with an ill fitting jacket or pants. Above all, you want your suit to suit you. To clarify, choose a suit that reflects your personality, while still coordinating with your dream wedding colors and theme.  To achieve this, visit the custom design studio at Leonardo 5th Avenue. At their locations, you can work with your fashion stylist to choose almost every detail of your suit. First the material. Second the liner, this is where you can have some fun. Third, the stitching and lapel style. Most importantly, the fit. With a custom designed suit, you choose the options. Then they create it. Next you get a custom fitting session. However, Leonardo requests that your fiancé not attend this appointment.  Ladies, do you want your fiancé attending your dress fitting…then Leonardo requests that you not attend this custom fitting appointment either.

Leonardo Cordero Suria presenta COOL en la edición Primavera-Verano 2021 de San Juan Moda

San Juan, PR. 5 de diciembre de 2018] – El diseñador de modas Leonardo Cordero Suria presentó su nueva colección COOL Primavera-Verano 2021, como parte de la 14ta. edición de la pasarela virtual de San Juan Moda desde el Coca Cola Music Hall.

“Esta propuesta es una invitación a la tranquilidad y el optimismo que necesitamos en estos momentos, sin dejar de tener toda la energía necesaria para enfrentar los retos. Proviene de la frase de los ’80 Keep it Cool, que en puertorriqueño sería “mantengamos la calma”, explicó el diseñador. Esta forma de pensamiento se transforma en moda a través de un entalle para caballero preciso pero relajado. El protagonista de la colección es justamente el entalle de estilo relajado tomado de las chaquetas anchas de los ’80 pero confeccionadas perfectamente a la medida de cada individuo para que resalte su figura y se distinga que es una pieza de alta costura. Esta precisión la vimos en una paleta interesante de colores verdaderamente primaveral y veraniega. Comenzamos con el rosado, amarillo claro, gris y terracota y terminamos con una hermosa gama de tonos azules cobalto, marino, celeste y océano.

La segunda protagonista de la colección son las camisas. La moda 2021 integrará camisas con personalidad propia para destacarse, alejándose de ser simplemente un complemento de color sólido. “Las rayas dominarán la temporada para que la camisa llame la atención, aun vistiendo chaqueta”, describió Leonardo. La colección le da a la camisa la importancia que veremos en el 2021.

Los detalles también forman parte integral de COOL. Vimos solapas anchas, chaquetas cruzadas, doble fila de botones y forros de calidad con diseños y colores en contraste.

La participación de Leonardo Cordero Suria formó parte de la 14ta edición de San Juan Moda en donde se presentaron 17 colecciones de los mejores diseñadores del patio. “Leonardo pertenece al equipo de diseñadores de SJM desde hace varios años, aportando a crear un balance gracias a su propuesta masculina y de corte sofisticado. Este año participó nuevamente con una colección innovadora y de buen gusto”, expresó Carlos Bermúdez, fundador y presidente de SJM.

COOL  forma parte de la división Couture de Leonardo 5th Avenue, dedicada a la creación de piezas únicas, diseñadas exclusivamente para cada caballero, procurando proyectar su estilo en todo momento. Se le hace una radiografía completa a su cuerpo, tomándole sobre treinta (30) medidas para luego crear el patrón y confeccionar las piezas a su gusto: trajes, chaquetas deportivas, camisas, chalecos o pantalones.

Leonardo Cordero Suria completó sus estudios graduados y post graduados en Diseño de Moda, Manufactura y Ciencias Textiles en la Universidad de Philadelphia. Comenzó a trabajar en Leonardo’s Formal, empresa dedicada a la venta de etiquetas formales para caballeros, siendo tan solo un niño, en donde ha desempeñado un sinnúmero de posiciones hasta llegar a CEO, a partir de 2004. Apropiándose de sus estudios, pericia y tantos años de experiencia, dirige Leonardo 5th Ave a la medida en Puerto Rico y Florida, vistiendo al caballero de forma elegante, aún en un estilo relajado.

The Perfect Custom Suit

At Leonardo Fifth Avenue, we believe in the power of a great suit. Everyone deserves to look good and feel good in a perfectly tailored suit! With this in mind, we want to share five things you may not know about our one-of-a-kind Designed to Measure Program. 

We take over 25 measurements. Our DTM Specialist will make sure they have any and all measurements needed to make sure your suit fits perfectly. We also have a complimentary tailoring service so no small detail is left behind. 

Over 300 fabrics to choose from. Whether you’re looking to match a theme or color scheme, pick the exact fabric (or fabrics!) you want for your garment. 

Completely customizable. Our team of specialists can create absolutely anything you have in mind, even if it doesn’t conform to the look of a traditional suit jacket!

It’s in your closet in 6 weeks. Custom made is often associated with a long wait. Our design to measure program is designed so your garment can be hanging in your closet in only 6 weeks!

Designed with re-wearability in mind. We believe that a custom made suit deserves to be used time and time again, which is why our suits are high quality and resistant. Designing for a formal event but want to wear it for a night on the town? We’ll include an extra set of buttons so you can easily dress down your jacket!

Ready to Keep Celebrating

Our Island is ready to keep celebrating!

We know that these have been trying times for many in Puerto Rico and all around the word. We also know that celebrating is in our DNA, and that it’s more important than ever share our special moments with our friends and family as safe as we can. This is why we join the Event Industry in stating that we are ready to keep celebrating.

We’ve created a detailed plan to celebrate our special events while following strict safety measures. A great way to do this is to have organize micro events. These events are a perfect way to keep the safety standards up to code and still enjoy the big day the way you envision them. Having a sanitizing station at the venue is also important, so guests can wash their hands, disinfect their shoes. We also recommend testing for all attendees, so that no stone is left unturned.

Trend Alert: Intimate Weddings

If there’s anything we’ve learned during these last few months is that people are master redesigners. We see brides and grooms change their wedding plans to accommodate new regulations while staying strong and ready to celebrate. Micro weddings, intimate ceremonies, and elopements have become a trend that is easy to get on board with, not to mention wonderful to plan and dress!

Let’s elope in style

Elopements used to be associated with spontaneously running away towards your happily ever after. Now they’re synonymous with truly intimate, stylish and photogenic weddings. It’s an opportunity to dress to the nines while keeping everyone in your close circle safe and healthy. This is an amazing opportunity to have everyone dressed to harmonize with the look that the couple wants to achieve. It’s a great chance to get everyone in the same dress code and the aesthetics the couple yearns for, color scheme and even fabrics. A Pinterest worthy set up if we’ve ever seen one!

Just between us

In intimate weddings, couples get to say their “I do’s” in front of their closest friends and family. Because of the scaled-down size, brides and grooms can save on bigger expenses and focus on making the smaller spaces even more special. Like the elopement, this is also a great opportunity to get the lucky attendees dressed formally and in the theme of the event to create the absolute perfect picture. These can be followed up with a one-year anniversary party, where the couple can celebrate their love on a grander scale when it’s safe to do so. Double the celebration!

Our big wedding, but make it micro

Micro weddings tend to have no more than 20 attendees. This is perfect for brides and grooms who can’t just strip down their guest list to 4 or 5 people. Wedding planners have come up with fun and photogenic ways to keep friends and family safe while still feeling like a larger wedding, so look out for clever seating plans, sanitation stations and goodie bags with face coverings for the attendees to use during the ceremony. If you’re planning a micro wedding, consider setting a strict formal dress code and color story that everyone can follow. 

An opportunity to dress to the nines! 

These three trends present an exciting opportunity to dress up your entire wedding in your own style. The L5A team is ready to find the perfect look for the wedding and make this a day to remember! 

 

A Celebration of You

With more than half the year behind us, it’s amazing to look back at everything that has happened in 2020.

That’s why we designed our latest campaign around what matters most right now and always: you.  A Celebration of You: this was the concept behind our latest visual presentation. We want to celebrate each and......

Dr. Fernando Sepúlveda – #LFA_Nation

Para mí, vestirme de Leonardo, significa elegancia. Leonardo siempre se caracteriza por eso mismo, por tener estilos elegantes y clásicos. Lo más que me gusto de la experiencia fue, número uno, el trato personalizado que te dan cada vez allí. Yo fui por primera vez a hacerme la etiqueta para mi boda y la experiencia fue tan buena que me hizo volver y tener ropa para el día a día, para mis conferencias. Emocionado, porque me estaba poniendo algo que me gustaba mucho para un día tan especial en el que uno quiere lucir como nunca antes. Cuando uno se......

Yaska Crespo – #LFA_Nation

Para mí, vestir de Leonardo 5th Avenue, significa experiencia, glamour, sentirme segura. Lo más que me gustó de la experiencia en el Designers Studio es, precisamente, tener la comodidad de escoger detalle por detalle. No era sencillamente escoger una tela, sino, tomar el tiempo para escoger la tela de adentro (linner) que me gustaba. O sea, tener esos detalles. Para mí, no importa el evento en el cual utilice este atuendo, me siento completa, me veo empoderada. Siento que voy por ahí fashion, fashion, fashion. Le añade a mi personalidad. Yo pienso que fue como un sentimiento encontrado; como que: "te ves tan......
