Pink Suits for Men? The Color Is Catching On

It’s usually the bride and her gown that get all of the attention, but pink suits for men are starting to step into the wedding-day spotlight.

At his backyard ceremony in Atlanta, Grammy-nominated recording artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Jeezy recently married Emmy-winning TV host Jeannie Mai. And on his big day, he wore a custom rosé-Champagne-colored tuxedo created with the help of his tailor Teofilo Flor and stylist Kris Shelby. The look was anchored with a crisp white shirt, black bow tie, coordinating pocket square, and black loafers. Together the pieces made a memorable statement that was both sophisticated and dapper.

Of course, he’s not the only guy who has proven how delightful pink suits for men can be. Remember when Jay-Z wore one to Roc Nation’s 2020 pre–Grammy Awards brunch? In his words, it wasn’t pink, but a shade of mauve that made him feel “mauvelous.”

No matter the shade, the rose-hued color has also played a major role in cinematography. How could we ever forget about Leonardo DiCaprio’s pinstripe number worn in The Great Gatsby in 2013? And let’s go all the way back to 1964 when the late Sean Connery charmed the big screen in Goldfinger wearing a three-piece version of the pastel shade. All are perfect examples of the ever-enduring allure of a pink suit.
