This is my first post on the forums, and I've only become interested in suits after my fiance tasked me with coming up with an outfit for myself, as well as for my groomsmen. Our wedding is set for next June in Seattle, WA at a barn.
Anyhow, I need a suit! (My fiance prefers a three-piece suit, but I'm open to going with or without the vest.) After going to a ton of weddings this past year and seeing outfits of black and gray suits, I wanted to go with a khaki suit. I like the texture that linen has.. but I'm pretty open to all suggestions! The next thing to note is that I already bought my shoes, and they are definitely casual! (Many of you may think that that it's a dumb idea.. but if you do, sorry. I don't really care to hear comments related to them! It's already been decided.)
So with that, any suggestions would help. Our budget is around 600-700 after tailoring/alterations. Any help would be great! And if you have a suit you're looking to sell that will be a good match for this, I'm interested!
I'm not sure of my exact measurements since this is my first suit purchase. My off the rack sizing would be:
Weight: 145 lbs
Suit: 36R (may need alterations)
Shirt: 14.5, 32/33
Pants: 29 x 29
Thanks all and I look forward to the dialog to come!
