post #211 of 2073

As much as I like the pink Penrose PS and the periwinkle diamond PS, I think I'll take your advice and go with white linen pocket squares all round. Thank you again, your assistance is much appreciated.

I think white linen is a great choice...it's a good, clean look for a wedding.

Ok, I need to know what would bw ecthe optimum length and width for my wedding tie, and whether its best to have an actual textured tie. Such as a woven silk shepherds check, or a printed version of one of the classics. I really like T&A small houndstooth, but feel ita a bit wide for my broad 5'8" frame. I'm a fitness fanatic so I have a largish chest, and smaller waist. OTR suits are normally a disaster. Anyways I checked Sam Hober's site but didn't see any woven options available in wedding patterns atm. Am I looking on the right place, or can he usually come with what you ask for as far as material is concerned? I do like some of his PoW but didnt know how a plaid like that would fit my outdoor, summer, garden wedding. You've convinced me that I shouldn't match the color of my brides dress, with which I agree. I'm just tryng to look as formal and classic as possible with my lounge suit for the afternoon wedding. Also I've decided against getting a vest. Any other tie makers I should be looking at?

Your tie width should be in proportion to the lapels on your jacket. If you have a big chest, the lapels should be on the wider side to be in proportion to your frame. Also, what kind of shirt collar will you be using....will there be a spread collar? If so a wider/ thicker tie may fill it better. Length should not be an issue at 5'8".

I'm getting a shirt made with the RLPL keaton collar, a cutaway, so the tie can be on the thick
side. I happen to like the sharpness that collar gives to the look. The custom suit I'm having made, we are doing normal (classic) width lapels, not the narrow ones. So it should be good to go. I'll be sure to post pictures from the big day!

I'm doing the same thing, unfortunately they don't offer the keaton collar on black label MTM.

If you are going custom, then definitely get a three-piece...how many times are you going to be the center-of-attention for an entire day in a custom suit? Go for The Full Monty.

Can anyone suggest a nice linen shirt to wear with this suit?


Would dirty bucks be a good shoe choice? Wedding is casual, in the desert, and hot. I am groom.

I would really like a vest with my suit, however, I'm not crazy about a matching 3-piece suit for celebrations. To me it's too "law firm partner" or something. I would, however, consider getting a contrasting vest in a light glenplaid/PoW pattern if this would be better than a simpler 2-piece. Another reason why I was a bit afraid of getting a vest is that we will be outside in the middle of July, and it may be very hot. This may be my biggest dilemma of the whole event. Especially since a vest in the dormeuil mohair would cost as much as a nice new pair of black shoes, something else I still need to purchase. I could possibly do a PoW from Scabal or something for a lower price than the dormeuil mohair, and it could provide that "punch" I'm looking for. But I still want to look as formal as possible... So torn... confused.gif

LIght brown suede Oxfords or Monks, if you're going for the casual vibe.

Dirty bucks could look good with that.

Do you mean a linen dress shirt or a more casual variant? Shirt size? You're in the USA?

Any help with belt, tie, shirt, and whether to keep the vest would be appreciated. Actually, any help at all would be nice. Thanks guys.

Right now the outfit does not really say "wedding." I like the vest with that suit, but it looks more like a weekend casual or professor look. The tie is also not what we like to call a "wedding tie." Can you tell us a bit more about your event...time of day, venue, and what your bride is wearing so we can get a better picture that will allow us to help you.
