It is going to be a somewhat casual wedding. She wants it to be rustic and the color are brown and a sort of mint green. The wedding is going to be at 2pm in front of a big barn. She is wearing an off-white dress, I can't describe it too much because I haven't seen it though. Any other information? Oh and thanks for taking your time to help!

Definitely "no" on the vest and tie.
Not too sure about the shoes...kind of cool for the rustic vibe, but I think you will look much better in a pair of shiny black shoes for this kind of event...remember, all eyes will be on your feet for the first dance.
Thanks a lot! And I noticed the sleeves look short in that picture but I'm confident that they weren't when I was wearing it. Unfortunately I will be out of state until a couple days before the wedding. Hopefully it was just the shirt collar I had a problem with, I know it was a cheap dress shirt that was way too tight from a japanese company. I like the idea of the french cuff shirt and a mint tie, I wish I'd have posted on here months ago. I hadn't really black shoes any thought but it seems like they would look really slick with the suit. Thank you so much for the help! I appreciate you taking the time to help.
Ha...I ordered it online. She wanted me in a brown suit, and I didn't want to pay too muc for a suit I'm only gonna wear once (being brown, I'll probably only wear it once) It is a Christian Dior Monsieur that I got on Ebay. I forget what I paid but it wan't much. Actually, I think I spent more on the tailor than the suit itself. I have a nice charcoal Corneliani that fits like a glove, but she insists on the brown and has even seen it. Oh well.
Edit:the pic looks grey but it is a light brown.
The tailor didn't have a lot to say. Then again, it is a smaller town and he probably doesn't get many jobs. I'm thinking I will probably just wear the charcoal, she won't see it til she is walking down the isle anyway. It is too late to get another suit and have it tailored anyhow. And I don't feel comfortable in the brown suit above.
The problem is, that most woman have absolutely no idea how a suit is supposed to fit. I really would need a better picture and with a different shirt, but it looks to me like the fit is REALLY off and frankly, from the cut it looks so old it might qualify as vintage. What did the tailor say? You might be much better off with your charcoal with the white shirt and mint tie. No offense, but from the picture it looks like a sixteen year old boy has borrowed his father's suit for a date.
Casual variant linen shirt. Im a Slim XL. in usa.
This is the current best option.
Searchin for some cheaper bucks, and brands to look for other than walk over / bass / florshiem?

On the Subject of Wedding Ties
I'm looking to piece together a collection of wedding ties, one for me, one for each of my groomsmen, and one each for the father of the bride and my father. In pursuit of this end I have a couple of questions I could use some direction in answering...
1) What options for wedding ties (if any) exist in the chasm between Kent Wang/Drake's and TheTiebar.com? Specifically I'm looking for something in the $50/tie neighborhood.
2) Considering I am pulling together ten ties, can I repeat any of the patterns or is it absolutely essential that each tie be unique?
At the $75-$80 range, Kent Wang, Howard Yount, and Sam Hober are the standards. Sam Hober has several good wedding tie patterns, including several Glen Plaids in different scales.
