This is interesting. Most of the threads I have read seemed to lean toward button tabs for whatever reason. Probably because of aesthetics. It seems like most responders like the buckle for not only function but also for aesthetics. The main reason for my question is because the suit will be a three piece and most agree that belts are not the way to go even though they will be covered by a vest. I'm not a fan of braces really and was looking for the right alternative....
I'm thinking about getting a suit without any belt loops. From what I've been reading here most seem to prefer side tabs or side adjusters over the back adjuster. I'm curious to know what is the preferred option for side tabs or side adjusters. The kind with the buttons or the kind with the metal buckle where the fabric slides through (I'm not quite sure of the proper term). I think the button type looks better aesthetically but I didn't know which one was more...

I'm getting married soon and was going to wear a charcoal grey three piece with a white shirt. The sales person suggested I wear a black tie as my grooms men will be wearing deep purple. Should I go with a solid black? Sheen or flat (matte)? White linen or white silk? Appreciate everyones help.
I've never properly worn a 3 piece suit and was curious to know if the top of the vest (back piece)is supposed to go over the collar or fit under it? I would naturally think it would slip under the collar but doing so seems to create an unclean drape of the light satin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In "Godfather I" some of the vested suits showed waistband and shirt. This was so because the costume designer used low rise trousers (which were in fashion at the time) rather than high waisted trousers as used in the 1930's and 1940's. Mr. Sinatra also wore some short vests in "Robbin and...
