I am not that worried about "rules" but I think a flat-front shirt looks better with a three-piece tux.

I agree, but I don't think pleats look bad.  This one I definitely chalk up to preference.  I was just contemplating the other day where a pleated shirt would fall on my list to buy.  I do think a flat front is the next one I'll get, but can't decide on a covered placket, or studs.

If I know you, you'll go for studs...one more opportunity to accessorize...

Well, there's the next shirt I'll buy, and the next shirt I want.  The next shirt I want is a stiff front with detachable wing collar.  But, the next shirt I buy will likely be a flat front with a covered placket, since they are cheap and plentiful.

Hello, I need some help choosing my wedding attire (Groom). I was planning on wearing this suit :


With these shoes (haven't decided on brown or black):



I have absolutely no idea what color tie to wear or what color shirt. I was planning on keeping it simple with a white shirt and maybe a gray tie. It is a small wedding so there is no wedding party and it will just be my best man who will be officiating. My fiancé says it doesn't matter to her what I wear. Also, the wedding is in the morning followed by brunch, if that matters. Any help you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

White shirt, silver tie, black shoes would be standard.

I agree with the above post. However, it sounds like a pretty informal event, so you have free reign to go with any tie you like. I say wear whatever colour normally looksbest on you. If you want to play it safe, silver is, as stated, pretty standard, and navy really can't go wrong, either. Burgundy is also safe.

Groomsmen in varying shades of grey/charcoal? or keep them similar?

Thanks guys for your responses, really appreciate it. I was actually leaning towards the brown shoes instead of black. I have no probl being "standard" but are there certain tie/shirt combinations that go well with the brown shoes I posted?

This is just a general question? It kind of depends on the setting. Lighter grays are less formal, and less suitable to evening. If you have a more formal or an evening wedding, keep 'em all dark. If not, some can be lighter.

Brown shoes create less contrast, so generally lower contrast tie/shirt combinations will be more harmonious. For example, a light blue shirt rather than a white shirt. But really even a white shirt + the previously mentioned navy or burgundy tie would be fine. I would recommend against white shirt, silver tie, brown shoes though. Brown seems out of place in that outfit.

A little puzzled by the responses you're getting, and not sure what you're asking. For a wedding, what you have selected is inappropriate. You should wear at a minimum, a dark suit, white shirt, conservative tie (read dark w/ small pattern or silver-grey) and black shoes. Period. If you decide to stray from that norm, then do whatever you wish--it makes no difference whatsoever since you're rejecting norms of minimum etiquette as it is.

You're upset because his suit isn't dark enough? It's not inappropriately light given the way he's described the setting, at least on my monitor. I also don't agree that any deviation from "the norm" means that it no longer matters what you wear. By that logic, anything short of a full morning suit wouldn't even be worth discussing.

It's a daytime wedding outdoors with evening reception. Main issue is having too much variance in shades and I guess therefore formality.

I understand Bugatti's answer to the extent that if the groom is lucky he and his wife will be looking at photos of their wedding many years from now and it is worth looking as smart as possible whatever the setting.
