My first post here:

Is it out of the question for the groom use a shirt with studs with a suit? (ie Not a tuxedo) No pleats or anything like that.

It has a soft front, like a normal dress shirt, but it takes studs?

Yes. Shirts that are meant to be worn with a tuxedo or white tie can take studs. Other dress shirts should not have studs.

Also, if you're wearing a four-in-hand tie with a suit, you won't see the studs anyway. Are you planning to wear a bow tie?

Studs are for Black Tie and a Bow Tie.

With a regular suit and regular tie the buttons of the shirt won't be seen anyway.


To recap, yes its out of the question.

Don't do it.

I had a feeling that would be the answer. Thanks!

Yes, a bow tie will be worn. The question will be whether to go with my navy suit or black tuxedo... Which will largely be decided by the bride. smile.gif

Only a choice if the wedding is after 6:00PM as a tuxedo should not be worn before then (according to rules of style / traditional men's dress, perhaps not so much according to the rules of preserving future marital harmony but at least try to not end up in a tuxedo at noon).

Setup: in-laws' best friends' daughter is getting married this weekend at a swank-as-hell country club down toward Hilton Head Island -- evening wedding, both ceremony & reception are outdoors. Dress code is specified as suit & tie; wedding party will probably be in tuxedos.

I'll be wearing a charcoal three-piece with a baby blue shirt. I realize it's the fancy South, where things below are generally approved, but I don't want to upstage anybody. Which of the following should I forgo?
  • glen plaid bow tie (in favor of a glen plaid or green/blue neck tie)
  • panama hat
  • waistcoat

Forego the hat, even in the South, it's not that common--unless the wedding is during the day and you are bald, in which case, rock out. Bow ties are indeed much more common in the South, but there is a big difference between a wedding held in the South, and a wedding where a large number of the guests are old Southern.

I'd prefer long tie but up to you. I'd also wear a white shirt.

Cool, hat is out, thanks. Bride and groom went to school and currently live in the South but both grew up far from it.

Still undecided on the tie. I may bring both and give the wife a say. Between the glen plaid tie choices and a white linen pocket square, the blue shirt is to keep the whole thing from getting too monochromatic.

You've got black white and gray. That's plenty of contrast. Throwing a color in just cuz looks random and ruins the effect IMHO. Especially if you're going to wear black shoes, as you should. If you wear the blue shirt, then maybe some kind of navy tie and brown shoes.

The subtler option is to have a Winchester shirt with a hairline stripe, something like this:

White shirt, eh... alright, ordered. And yes, black Park Avenues.

I'd meant to find something like that to wear to my own wedding, but never came across one in a 15.5/37 extra slim. Damn monkey arms.

Thanks all.
