Help a soon-to-be groom looking for the perfect suit. Light gray is hard to find!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm getting married in late January, but am having a very hard time finding a suit with the right color. (Light gray would work well with the theme.)

 

Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

I was originally going to wear a Ben Sherman Camden fit (36), but many people critiquing said it was too short. Otherwise, I think it fit great.

Unfortunately, the King's fit feels a bit larger and less fitted. I'm not sure if tailoring can fix that? (They did not have the lighter gray in store.)

Last night, I fell in love with and ordered the Washington Grey suit from Suit Supply. Unfortunately, they ended up emailing me to inform that they didn't have a 36 in stock and I would be refunded instead.

I'm trying to avoid MTM seeing as how they're always sent back. Are there any recommendations for a $600 budget?

Bumping this because it didn't get approval until 8 hours later (since it was my first post).

Brooks Brothers is a pretty safe bet in that price range. There are probably better deals and better suits, but none will quite be as safe. Just make sure the suit fits well around the shoulders; everything else can (and should, to ensure perfection) be easily tailored.
 

Edit: I would also suggest a Sam Hober grenadine for your tie. I strongly suggest you peruse his appreciation thread.

Unfortunately Brooks Brothers has a very limited selection in my price range (none of which are in lighter gray). I will check out the store in person this week to see if there is any in-store stock.

Might not be overwhelmingly endorsed by SF...Nevertheless, perhaps you can check out Hugo Boss' lineup of grey suits: http://store-us.hugoboss.com/mens-suits/21100,en_US,sc.html?prefn1=searchColorID&prefv1=grey%7csilver
