I'm getting married in Shanghai next month and can't decid on a suit fabric. I wanted a seersucker, but no tailors have it here, which is ironic since so much of the fabric is made in China. It will be an evening wedding, outdoors, and my fiance will be wearing a white lace qipao (Chinese dress). It is bound to be hot and muggy, and a tux is too formal for the environment, as the entire wedding is somewhat nontraditional. Any suggestions? I'm not Chinese, so please don't suggest i wear something Chinese; westerners look silly in that gear, or at least i would. I'm thinking of a two or three button navy blue linen. Is this perhaps too casual? Any idea about shirt and tie? Looking forward to some sound advice from forum members. Thanks.
