IMHO and historically, dove grey is the more appropriate colour for the groom. Buff, baby blue and other colours were and are usually worn by the wedding guests or by all attendees in other occasions such as racing etc. (in a morning attire context).
Simply addressing your easy trigger "everyone" is a scam/fraud .Orazio was your best mate and chosen tailor. Now is a fraud....
I believe it was early in this thread or in the PC AV thread where someone exposed how Orazio Luciano has been also accused by sarto of Fraudulent behaviours and how Orazio do not even want to hear the name of the guy again.

I am not following them anymore as I use other shirtmakers but from what I have read on Permanent Style recently they seems to have a collaboration with him or at least he publish info of each visit
I have both and have used both for some time, and Hanro have lasted much better whilst zimmerli have soon lost the shape with the side seams shifting all over the place, whilst the hanro are still as new after a couple of years wearing.
