Just won this to replace the black waistcoat. Seller thinks 20's,dove grey wool, adjustable 18"-21" length, should work out nice.

Looks good, with probably enough of a deeped curve front rather then the modern flat ones.

I'm getting married this coming June. It'll be a morning ceremony (in Central Park), followed by lunch. I tossed around the idea of morning dress but I don't feel that I can be the only one in morning dress and I can't force everyone to purchase/rent morning dress attire. So, I'm thinking a navy suit (Suitsupply Napoli), white spread-collar french cuff shirt, wedding tie (Sam Hober or Kent Wang), white linen PS, and black park aves.

 

I am considering adding an odd waistcoat. Perhaps inspired by morning dress, I am wondering whether a double breasted white/dove gray waist coat would look good. Any thoughts? Any other waist coat ideas?

 

Also, let me know what you think of the rest of the ensemble.

 

Thanks!

Personally I do not like odd waistcoat with Navy/blue. I would rather go (actually done this) with Oxford grey (almost black).

I'd say this guy pulled it off pretty well. Nice nod to morning dress.

Agreed, I think that looks pretty good. I wouldn't do peak lapels simply because I wouldn't get much use out of a suit with peak lapels. I don't think that would make much of a difference though. 

 

I think a gray might look good too, but I do like the lighter colors -- especially as I will already be wearing a dark suit in the daytime (in the summer nonetheless!).

This was pretty much my thinking when choosing wedding attire. I wanted to do morning dress but figured it would come off more as a costume than traditionally elegant (in San Francisco in 2012 at least).

Your traditional options for waistcoat are pretty much buff, dove gray, powder blue, and light pink. Buff and gray seem to be most popular by a wide margin with pink probably being very rare.

Thanks Zeero. I think I will give it a try. Did you find your waistcoat in SF, or did you order online from the UK? I can't seem to find many places that sell them, at least online. It seems like there should be somewhere in nyc that sells them.

It was actually kind of hard finding waistcoats online, but I ended up at http://www.pakeman.co.uk/category/223/Formal_Waistcoats and I was definitely happy with it.

Why can't you be the only one in morning dress? You're the groom, right? You can wear whatever the hell you want.

Zeero, that's great. Thanks for your help. 

 

Testudo: I know, I know. I guess I don't want to be the only one in morning dress. I've been to plenty of weddings where grooms/groomsmen were the only ones in black tie and that seems fine. But because morning dress would already be a peculiarity at an American wedding, being the only person wearing it would, as Zeero mentioned, just make me feel like I was wearing a costume. In short, I don't think it would have the intended effect of being more serious attire, for me at least.

Hey everyone. I'm getting married next year in NYC in May. The wedding is at 11am, and I'm very interested in wearing a bespoke morning dress rig. I'm willing to travel to London or anywhere in Europe to have one made.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion of a tailor that can handle something like this? Pictures of their work or additional info is greatly appreciated. 

 

I'm also willing to hear any other suggestions or comments, if you're interested in sharing.

post #2293 of 2500
Probably any Savile row tailor could set you up. Also Knize in Vienna. And probably many more throughout the continent. I went 30's vintage for my rig, but was likely very lucky with fit and quality.

Hey all, I'm the groom at an outdoor afternoon wedding coming up this fall. It's going to be a small, fairly informal event, set on a farm. 

 

Right now I'm thinking about a navy suit by spier and mackay or suit supply.

 

I'm looking at these two colors:

http://www.spierandmackay.com/product_information/3993_pre_sale___navy_blue_solid___contemporary_fit

 

It's hard for me to tell what the first one will look like in person. What do you think? Any other ideas? 

post #2295 of 2500
I'd prefer the marine one.
