Gentlemen, I'll be getting married in October, and I'm working out all the details of what my attendents and I will be wearing. Most of the decisions aren't particulary difficult, but I thought I'd invite you all to weigh in on a few particulars. For starters, I've selected my own tuxedo"”a Dior Homme single-breasted, single-button peaked lapel model. Although the tux itself is wonderful (bless Hedi Slimane.), it does present one problem: it lacks provision for a boutonniÃ¨re. I don't relish the thought of sticking a pin through the satin lapel of a brand new designer tux that I fully intend to wear on subsequent occasions, so I'm looking for alternatives. I'm considering having a buttonhole added to the lapel; does anyone have any thoughts on that, or any other ideas? Secondly, I'm soliciting suggestions for tuxedo rentals. Male members of the wedding party will be coming from different cities (NYC, Pittsburgh, Detroit, LA), so I need a chain with nationwide locations as well as a good selection of styles and quality service. Currently, I'm considering Gingiss and Men's Wearhouse. Comments on those choices and suggestions for alternatives would be greaty appreciated. Feel free to toss in any thoughts on accessorizing, from neckwear to shoes, since I have yet to solidify any of my choices save for the tux itself. Not that I don't have my own ideas, but I'm curious to hear from "the boys."
