Does anyone know if the 511's are similar in size in the waist/thighs? I like the 514s up top but I find that the bottom of the leg opening is a bit big for my summer footwear. If anyone has any other ideas on how to address this, I'm all ears.
Pretty nice, and at a decent price. Thanks!
 Where did you find your vintage studs? Yes, I am 90% certain I need 4 studs, not just 3, which is making my purchase of a vintage set of studs difficult. I saw those octagonal onyx ones, but I thought just a little flash wouldn't hurt at this particular occasion.  And yes, a self tie bow tie. I'm not sure why anyone bothers with the pre tied version, it's so easy to tie. Last year I attended a wedding in Istanbul where I was the only person who knew how to tie a bow tie....
  Not yet, I'm awaiting it's arrival. It's the Brooks Brothers slim fit ten pleat shirt. And the cummberbun from them as well.  http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Slim-Fit-Ten-Pleat-Wing-Collar-Formal-Tuxedo-Shirt/376Q,default,pd.html?dwvar_376Q_Color=WHIT&contentpos=19&cgid=0235 http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Four-Pleat-Cummerbund/135I,default,pd.html?dwvar_135I_Color=BLCK&contentpos=11&cgid=0235 The slim fit brooks brothers shirt fit me very well, so that's why I went with...

 I've tried every consignment store in my area that carries mens clothing, and none have stud sets in stock. If anyone has a line in either Northern NJ or in Manhattan, I'm all ears. I was trying to avoid the $500-1000 cost, because for that money, I know precisely what I'll get. I was hoping to keep it around $100, if not less (if that's even possible).
Does anyone have a resource for cufflinks and shirt studs? If you're going to refer me to eBay, do you have a specific seller in mind?    Also, to cumberbund or not to cumberbund? That is the other question.
     I'll try not to serve food or take drink orders. Thank you for all the wonderful advice, gentlemen.
  One of my favorite quotes of all time, from one of my favorite episodes of 30 Rock. (FYI, polyester is far from what I wear as well. I was referring to the waiters)
So I have a wedding coming up that is "black tie optional". While I would love to wear my tux, I'm worried about looking like one of the waiters at the reception, who I am sure will be wearing a polyester dinner jacket and clip on bow tie.    Any suggestions on how to deal with this? Again, I would like to wear my dinner jacket if possible.
