Collar and Cuff Dublin is one of Ireland’s most prestigious suit, formal wear and grooms wear shops…

And its owner, Declan Mahon, is one of Ireland’s leading formalwear experts. With over 10 years’ experience in the men’s formal apparel industry gained both in Ireland and overseas, Declan knows what he’s talking about when it comes to getting grooms looking their best for their wedding day.

So, with that in mind, we thought we’d ask this pro for his thoughts on the newest grooms wear trend – the blue revolution.

Mr Ireland


“In over 10 years of being in this trade I have never seen such a drastic shift in trend towards a particular colour or style….AND I LOVE IT!”

For the foreseeable future it’s all about the blues ladies and gentlemen –  electric blue, powder blue, grey blue, navy blue -the list goes on.

At Collar & Cuff we have embraced the revolution and it’s safe to say that one suit in particular is leading the field when it’s come to the groom’s choice for his big day.

The slim fit Navy blue Magee Dillon suit is a flyer and we can’t get enough of it. (photo above of the groom and his groomsmen). The well cut suit is the perfect shade of blue for summer or winter weddings and the sharkskin effect on the pure wool fabric shows up beautifully when photographed.

A more subtle choice would be a soft powder blue that was extremely popular this summer. Think Harvey Spector from the TV series “Suits” and other popular celebrities who have donned this shade of blue recently but not every guy can pull this off, depending on skin tone, the paler skinned gents should stay away from this colour.


Remus Uomo have come to the fore with a magnificent shade of grey-blue and once again at Collar & Cuff – we’ve got it! They have the fit spot on and for the winter weddings this is the ideal colour for the grooms-to-be.

So the Blue Revolution is well under way and in no uncertain terms is it going away.
