#6. Go for patterns

Make sure the pattern you choose blends in well with the groomsmen and the groom. 

#7. Men are allowed to wear pastels too!

#8. Go with the seasonal flow

If the wedding is in summer or someplace warm, experiment with pastels and light colors, and materials that are breathable like cotton and linen should be preferred.
