should I be concerned that the Moss Bross hire shop attendant didnt take shirt and vest measurements?

Are you having a try on in advance? I would insist for one so that you can change sizes if needs be

I'm getting married in May and wearing a tux at the ceremony. I'm getting ready to have a tuxedo shirt made from ProperCloth and was looking for suggestions on fabric. My original plan was to use a nice Thomas Mason Twill fabric but I was told today that is to casual...Broadcloth could work but I don't like how wrinkly it gets. Any suggestions? Is twill really too casual?

 

I'm going to cross post this in the proper cloth thread as well.

Do you want a plain or pleated front option?

The traditional approach was a voile body with marcella bib, collar and cuff. An alternative to marcella was the finest white linen, but this had to be proper starched.

The body is most recently made of fine poplin instead of voile.

Pleated shirt can be made entirely of poplin or to have collar, cuff and pleated front in poplin and the body in voile.

Twill is not appropriate, but I have seen museum pieces where voile with spaced sateen whale rib was used for the body ( in Italian these type of cloths are called "operati" and often used for morning and evening ceremony shirts).

Edit to add:

Another option would be a fine poplin hidden placket front, but I peronally consider it less formal, and something I have and wear for more casual events e.g with a velvet jacket

A friend of mine is getting married in a couple of weeks, and has left his tie-buying (he's doing the groomsman thing) to the last second. He doesn't feel that he'll get a Sam Hober order in in time (I suggested he email). Aside from Kent Wang (from whom he plans to buy a couple), where else can he look for affordable wedding ties with a quick turnaround? RLPL and the like are out at about 240$/tie.

I got most of my wedding ties from eBay. I think I got drakes, polo, and Brooks (new... Needed an XL)

I assume this is appropriate place to ask this question: what is an appropriate tie to wear as a guest? Is it a wedding tie? Just something conservative? I'm not talking about formal/black tie weddings, just something you wear with a suit (semi-formal?). Thanks in advance

I always wear a wedding tie to a wedding even as a guest.

Yes, this is an appropriate place to ask. And having read this entire thread, I feel confident saying you should definitely wear a wedding tie. I'm especially partial to the shepherd's check myself. Kent Wang is the affordable choice, or Sam Hober.

Thanks to you both.

Stupid follow-up: Any reason to go black over navy check? Will the navy be too much with a navy suit?
post #2336 of 2504
It's not a stupid question, but you thinking it might be, indicates you have the right idea. Go black.

Gentlemen,

 

I'm a bit of a planner so I'm asking about a wedding I've been invited to coming up in July. 

 

Here's the dilemma:

1. It's in Jacksonville, Florida. 

2. It's in July.

3. The ceremony is at 4:30 pm

4. It's "black tie optional"

 

What the fuck do I do? 

 

I do not currently own a tux, but could commission one from a tailor to be sent to me based upon past measurements. However, this is at 4:30.. Isn't that a little taboo? Also, I'm really not that sure how many people will actually be wearing tuxedos... 

 

Cheers to those of you that take the time to weigh in.. 

 

EDIT: It's a gigantic Lebanese wedding at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral followed by the reception at TPC Sawgrass (PGA Headquarters) country club and golf course. There'll be babes a plenty and I want to look damn good without melting.

1800 or sundown, whichever comes first according to eveningwear etiquette. That said, with the state of black tie in the Somewhat United States of Parts of America, I'd say 1630 would be in a green, seeing as the party with said babes-a-plenty will continue into the wee hours. Invitation says black tie optional, which means you shouldn't give a damn what the plebeians will wear. White dinner jacket is appropriate for Florida.The aforementioned babes will be at your patent leathered or polished calfskinned feet.

I like where your heads at. I know the groom will be in a white dinner jacket so i definitely won't be encroaching there. How do you guys feel about midnight blue in situations such as this? Still weary (yet not entirely apprehensive) of upstaging all the plebeians...
