Does anyone own both J Crew sweaters and HY sweaters? How would, say a size medium compare between the two?
Given the time of day you're getting married (most of the even will be after dinner), I would suggest that you get fitted a Samuelsohn MTM tux in the style of your choosing and do it properly with a bowtie (a-la blacktieguide.com). Tell your fiancee that your attire is something that is very important to you and it would mean a lot to you if she would back you up on this decision. If after this she still will not be flexible enough to let you choose your own attire then...
I'm not an american, but I'm pretty sure that the US postal system is heavily subsidized. Other countries cannot ship as cheaply as americans have become accustomed. I often receive packages from the US where the postage is marked as being $5-$8 and the return postage with Canada Post to the same destination in the US is often $25-30.
That jacket looks awesome with jeans (or are those navy flannels?) but I'm not so sure about the grey trousers.
Just wanted to offer a website suggestion - it would be great to use a drop down menu to select a size and then show all available items of any style in that size.
Got my lambswool flannels today. Quality is ridiculous. Thanks Jamison! Expect another half dozen pairs in various styles ordered for me in the next few months.
I would recommend skipping the metal button blazer for now. Also, consider a pair of chocolate colored dianite soled chelsea boots for fall/winter. Get a couple of V-neck merino sweaters - navy, wine, light grey (J crew are slim and good price for starting out). Go slow, focus on fit and keep the color palate simple (grey, navy, white, charcoal, etc).
Thanks - the rules have changed since I last posted. I guess I'll absorb that cost.

Kopped the lambswool flannels in dark grey. My first order from HY. Looking forward to seeing them. I'm normally a 33, but as a cyclist I decided to size up to 34 due to the thigh clearance required.
