I went to pick up a pair of Alden Straight Tip Bal Oxfords today and was told that it would take 12 weeks. Would you want or would you just pick up AE Park Avenues?

Thanks, Panzer I have had 11 shirts made from B&D (in 2005 and 2006) and waiting to pick up 4 more (ordered about 4 weeks ago). I had one shirt that shrunk a bit more than the others. They were able to do some things to...
I guess it's just me - but I don't see a big leap between a dark "formal" wedding suit and a tuxedo. Sort of a quarter step difference as compared to the full step between an SC/slacks to Suit.

Being Indian myself - I don't like the idea of wearing a suit to the wedding, esp. if you are going to have to remove your shoes. Suits without shoes is an epic fail. I would actually suggest something more casual if you are not going to splurge for the kurta. Your Indian friend may have a kurta he can lend you for the day. I certainly own many more than 1. "Western dress" for the reception is fine.
The tone of the thread changed after it was realized that the OP was sincere (not rich). He seems to have taken no offense from the comments at the start which is a sign of class in and of itself IMO. Despite all the suggestions about going to London - I'll say this: the United States is a consumer's paradise. There is almost nothing that you can't get stateside and most likely it will cheaper. Think about a few days in NYC instead. I would also suggest not buying...
