Very thin pinstripe suit for a wedding or dinner?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a Navy Blue pinstripe suit where the pinstripes (light blue) are so thin that you can't see them from more than a couple of meters away. My question is would a suit like this still be too "businesslike" for something like a wedding?

It will be fine

Unless there is a specific dress code (black tie,...) you will be fine.

Thanks for the advice everyone!

What everyone else said. In the past, there was a pretty hard prohibition against pinstripes at social events. But given the general state of suit wearing these days, it really doesn't apply anymore. You should try, though, not to make it look like you dropped in on your way home from the office, especially if you did. For example, I have a very dark blue suit that has just very slightly lighter blue pinstripes which I sometimes use for social events. The pinstripes are only visible at all up close so this is a much better choice for social occasions a grey suit with more visible pinstripes.

If you will be part of the alter party during the wedding ceremony, ask the bride or groom if it will fit with what others will be wearing. If you are just attending the ceremony, it will be OK. After the third glass of Champagne, no one will notice what you are (or are not) wearing.

I think this is fine for a wedding since the pinstripes are hardly noticeable.
