UPDATED! added blue/teal tie - My suit for wedding. Too tight? - Page 2

added light blue tie

Blue tie looks much better and jacket looks fine with bottom button undone. Shoulders have been mentioned but in the short term you can probably get away with it as they're not way off, just a wee bit, as long as you're aware of it you can get this fixed at a more convenient time. Trousers really do need the shortening though as the extra length is throwing off the whole outfit - one of the cheaper and quicker tailoring jobs to get done so if you can you really should. Planning on rocking a pocket square?

Forget all of the advice on fit, look, color... buy a good pair of running shoes and run like hell! Sorry coming from a cynical man in a shitty 20yr marriage.

The light blue tie looks the best. Also, my personal tastes would be to go with different shoes as well if you were planning on wearing those ones.

As many have said, all the trousers are too long, you want a clean line down to the shoe with one shallow break (or none, according to taste), rather than dozens of folds all over the place.

I suppose the suit is RTW, so it's never going to be perfect and compromises are made for the best overall fir possible. The Slim-fit grey suit looks good. Match your tie width to the lapel width and I prefer a dark blue with a grey suit. I often wear blue shirts to weddings to remove the office wear look (which everyone is bound to have).

The long black suit suits you least, it buttons quite high and looks a bit '90s and boxy; no waist suppression. Apart from that none of the jackets are long, why people say things that are clearly not true is a real enigma.

Before you start talking half in hems, try taking pictures wearing the shoes you're gonna wear. I'm thinking you're more like 3 inches too long at least.

No one has said the gray suit jacket is too long, just the black one which was only mentioned by one poster. I would tend to agree with that observation, actually.

Perhaps the confusion is because when he updated the original post, he put the new pictures at the top of the list. So anything referencing the order would be confused.

Please wear shoes in pics. Always. Thank you.
