Seconded. When something only exists in one place, consider carefully why no one has copied it.

As you are on Vancouver Island, test assured that you will look better than everyone else. My sister had a church wedding on the island, with a formal reception, and chinos, shirt, no tie, was a common look among guests.

I appreciate the responses. Changing the buttons is definitely a viable option, which I think I will do. I'll see how the black shoes look after replacing the white buttons with black.

They'll look fine. It's tried and tested.

Are you meaning a specific suit, or just suits in general?  Was there someone's suit, on this thread, that you specifically liked?

I'm looking for some advice on ties for myself and 4 groomsmen.

 

We are all wearing this JCP Gray Twill Suit which I find to be great for the money. It's a mid-gray, notch lapel suit in case the link doesn't work. I'll be wearing a 3 piece and they'll just have the 2 piece. I know it's frowned upon to have the same suit, but the groomsmen are not exactly the best dressers, and only 2 of the 4 had a mid-gray to charcoal suit. I told them all to wear a white shirt (not a button down), black shoes, and black belt. I also mentioned I'd cover the cost of the tie, since I'm "forcing" them to get new suits.

 

I've read through the wedding ties thread and a bunch of other threads, but they tend to focus on morning dress, navy, or charcoal suits. It seems to me as though B&W glen plaid, shepherd's check, etc. would not look the best on a mid-gray suit as there would be too much gray-on-gray action. What would be some acceptable colors/ties that would look cohesive, but not all the exact same?

 

For what it's worth, the bridesmaids are all wearing the same dress, and it is a summery "Glacier Blue" fabric which is sort of a tealish/sea foam greenish color. My fiancee initially suggested matching plain solid of the same color which I shot down. I'd be fine with an accent color in the same hue, but nothing too ridiculous. I suggested navy, and she thought that would look bad with black shoes :brick:. I'm guessing if she sees a she would change her mind though.

 

If it all possible I'd like to keep them around thetiebar.com type price/quality.

Unless my screen is playing tricks I would call that suit more charcoal than mid-grey. I think the standard black and white wedding tie patterns would look great with it.

Wow that was fast! I suppose it is a lighter charcoal color. A bit lighter than the pics on jcpenney make it look though.

I'll give the standard options a try then. I have until memorial day weekend, so I can always change my mind if needed

Link isn't working for me but I had my groomsmen all in mid grey suits and got them grenadine ties in differing weaves and shades of dark blue-navy and it worked a treat. Haven't got pics back from the photographer yet but will post when I do.

You've done them a favour. Now they have a suit which they'll eventually need again in their adult lives. They're prepared. smile.gif

I had my guys in mid grey suits, with various grey patterned ties. There are pics earlier in the thread, or PM me if you want me to send you sine direct, to see if you like it. I fit them at thetiebar.com - ties are mid quality, and amazing value, providing you find the patterns you want. Don't know if budget is a concern for you,though.

Does anyone have a resource for cufflinks and shirt studs? If you're going to refer me to eBay, do you have a specific seller in mind? 

 

Also, to cumberbund or not to cumberbund? That is the other question.

Paging @capnwes any help here, on links/studs?

I found mine at a consignment store, and before that nearly bought some from a discount site. finetuxedos.com, myowntuxedo.com, overstock.com, mytuxedo.Co.UK, are a few to try. If you have money to spend (think $500-$1000) Brooks Bros has several styles, both classic and flashy.

Yes to cumberbund. Covering one's waist makes the whole look cleaner, and more elegant.
