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.

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!

You might get away with that suit, a crisp white French cuff shirt and a solid mint tie then. If it is in front of a barn with a casual vibe there is certainly no need for formalwear. It seems like there might be some fit problems with the suit-and not the nit-picky ones some of us on the board are known for...next time you try it on have someone take a picture of you standing in it with your arms down at your sides. From the pose you had, it looked like the sleeves were way too short...but that may be because of the way you were holding the phone to take the picture. You either have a serious problem with the fit of the jacket on the back of your neck, or a problem with the shirt collar. One way or the other, you cannot be seen in public like that.


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.

Where did you get the suit from?
post #232 of 1582

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 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. Show this thread to your fiancee. Will someone else chime in...I don't want to be the only voice this guy is hearing.

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.

Well, don't surprise/ ambush her on the wedding day. Just tell her that it does not fit and it will look terrible in the wedding pictures.

I don't want to make my groomsman buy a new suit for we wedding. They all have darkish grey suits. As long as no one has light grey, is a mix of darker grey suits ok?
