It also sounds like there is some substantial sartorial micro-managing happening at this wedding. My personal preference is to keep everything straightforward and streamlined.

I thought, you are only expected to wear black tie when the invitation specifically says "black tie?"

I've already ordered the lace-ups (yes, I know, I know, but I chickened out of the pumps option in the last minute), but will definitely keep these in...
I'm assuming you have thought of pairing these with white shirts, for starters? Suits in these colours go with almost anything. From my experience, the charcoal grey is slightly more versatile than the navy blue, but both are very versatile. anyway Have fun!
