GQ (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

1. “There aren’t many oc­ca­sions when you can wear a bow tie these days, so it pays to make an ex­tra ef­fort when you’re walk­ing down the aisle. Keep things clas­sic with a stylish black num­ber like this one.” JOSH BEGGS, ART DI­REC­TOR SILK BOW TIE, $159, BY GUCCI; MR­PORTER.COM

2. “If you’re at­tend­ing a less-for­mal af­fair, it’s worth look­ing fur­ther than your reg­u­lar black or white op­tions for pocket squares. This navy polka dot ver­sion will give your look a mod­ern edge.” BARNABY ASH, FASH­ION EDITOR POCKET SQUARE, $105, BY PAUL SMITH; PAUL­SMITH.CO.UK

3. “Don’t for­get the finer de­tails – start­ing with your nails. This fancy set has ev­ery­thing you’ll need to en­sure you look well groomed on your big day.” EMMA FAGG, MAR­KET EDITOR LEATHER-BOUND MAN­I­CURE SET, $719,BY CZEVH & SPEAKE; MRPORTE.COM

4. “I’ve been a huge fan of the new CT60 col­lec­tion since the launch ear­lier this year. This chrono­graph is just the right size, and the stain­lesssteel case and black dial makes this model equal parts un­der­stated and stylish. In other words: per­fect wed­ding day wrist wear.” NICK SMITH, EDITOR IN CHIEF STAIN­LESS STEEL ‘CT60 42MM’ CHRONO­GRAPH WATCH, $10,400, BY TIF­FANY & CO.; TIF­FANY.COM.AU

5. “Ev­ery groom must have a present from his bride-to-be to open on the wed­ding morn­ing – but you knew that, right? These are per­fect, so best start drop­ping hints now.” MIKE CHRISTENSEN, CHIEF SUBEDITOR STER­LING SIL­VER CUFF LINKS, $495, BY TIF­FANY & CO.; TIF­FANY.COM.AU

6. “There’s a lot to be said for tra­di­tional wed­ding at­tire, but if you don’t feel like go­ing the full flo­ral bou­ton­nière route, this leather lapel pin will add a nice con­tem­po­rary touch to your out­fit. Plus, it’s a handy piece to have in the wardrobe if any last-minute for­mal oc­ca­sions pop up.” RICHARD CLUNE, DEPUTY EDITOR LEATHER ROSE LAPEL PIN, $184, BY LAN­VIN; MATCH­ES­FASH­ION.COM

7. “If you’re not wear­ing a bow tie, dress things up with a stylish tie bar like this one. It could also make for a thought­ful, time­less gift for one of your grooms­men, if you’d like to thank them for their sup­port.” JAKE MIL­LAR, FEA­TURES WRITER STER­LING SIL­VER TIE BAR, $270, BY TIF­FANY & CO.; TIF­FANY.COM.AU
