Thanks for the suggestions and general discussion. A thought... for the look that's been put forward here, the consensus is that the tie is either solid silver, or a combination of silver and black. The bridesmaids dresses are sage - what if I was able to find a tie that was let's say silver with a very thin sage stripe? Or should I keep it to the silver/black look? Also, we see Charles in the pictures wearing a mid-blue shirt with a white stripe. What are your...
My first thought was... yep, I'll get a new suit made up for the wedding. Then, I thought.. what's the consensus on suiting up for the groomsmen? I'm only having a best man, but we should be wearing the same gear, yes? Now, if I spring for a new suit, do I do so for the best man? Or does he foot the bill? The suits themselves will not be a one-off use, they'll be perfect for work afterwards. What's the considered etiquette? Same goes for shirts, ties and...

I'm heading off for some exploring in Laos and Cambodia as part of my honeymoon next year. Things like Angkor Wat are a given, but I'd love to know if you've been and any stories or experiences you had and any great places you found, whether it be for food and drink, shopping and markets, historic sites etc..

You want to make yourself look more sleek and show off the body as a whole instead of the shoes. Then, as stuff starts to sag, you'll want to draw attention to the cuff links and shoes. I turn 30 in a couple of days. I best be off getting all my suits...
I've got a lunchtime event in the middle of winter. I'm thinking navy blue a 2 button peak lapel with a faint teal tight pinstripe to match the bridesmaids dresses. But, I'm not sure yet... want to keep it casual and laid back.
