Sebastian Garcia has revolutionized the way a groom and his groomsmen prepare for their big day. Weddings, once all about the bride, with the groom getting stuck in a stuffy getup, Garcia has set the stage by bringing dashing tailored menswear to South Florida. He’s done this via his acclaimed My Grooms Room as well as his high-fashion men’s store, Sartori Amici. And now, he’s focused in on making lapels more than a staple of refinement.
