Official Wedding Attire Question/Answer/Picture Thread - Page 160

post #2386 of 2509
CM, please help! I am 1 of 5 groomsmen, and have been assigned to help with the suit selection. The groom wants everyone wearing roughly the same color, but wants to vary the look/feel of the party, like have each grromsman have a different look. Outside of someone wearing a bow tie, another one a vest (I don't know, just spitballing here) what are some ways we all can achieve that subtle difference between everyone?

Wear navy blue suits and various types of grey ties. And different flowers in your boutonnières.

Hello gentlemen,

I'm getting married this coming April, and have already devoted more thought than I'd like to admit on what to wear. Styleforum has been a great resource and not least this thread, so thank you for that.

 

I've decided to go bespoke, and have gotten it down to two houses that look like either will do a great job. I'm curious about which way you fellows would go.  First, relevant info: I live in NYC and am looking to commission a midnight 3-piece with natural shoulders and a lapeled waistcoat.

 

The houses I'm considering are Franco Ercole and Napoli Su Misura. I prefer the craftsmanship on NSM, but almost all the images I can find of their work are casual sportcoats, and I haven't seen a single waistcoat. FE on the other hand seems very flexible stylistically, and they're local. 

 

Thanks for your time and opinions!

If you are considering designer houses, i suggest you check out Alan David. It is a family business that has been making custom suit since 1926. 

 

 

They offer made-to-measure, not bespoke.

Made-to-measure vs. full custom suits…For a made-to-measure garment, the tailor will take an existing pattern (42 regular or 44 regular etc.) and modify the pattern to your own measurements. For a full custom suit the tailor will make a specific pattern just for you. 

Just a coincidence that your account was registered specifically to make this post, right?

Dammit, I hit the thumb instead of the flag.

Don't underestimate the value of the local option. Much easier to quickly arrange fittings and to solve any problems, plus no potential language barrier (not sure if there is with NSM, but something to consider). If those are your two choices, I'd talk to Ercole in person (you should be able to see some of their work while you're there) and see if you think you can work with him.

Got wed. Photos ready in 3-4 weeks.

Wondered into a antiques market two days before the wedding and picked up the topper in the pic. I'd say it was a steal at £70. Old as balls, but near mint.

From the big day ~ 1 month ago.

 

Suit by Ercole Bespoke (Brooklyn, NY), Shirt from Gambert Custom Shirts (Millburn, NJ), Tie by our very own Yellow Hook neckties (Brooklyn, NY).

Sharp-looking suit, PAS. You both look great. Your bride seems to have gotten a nice fit in the bodice and hip, too. I see Ercoles doesn't always cut a super-short coat. Do you have another shot of the DB vest?

Hello gentlemen,

 

I am going to attend a morning wedding in September. This is the first time that I attend a western wedding. The couple told me that we can dress casual.

 

I have a white oxford shirt, a navy sports coat and matching trousers. However, I only have two pairs of AE JEFFERSON wingtip oxfords, one color is chestnut and another one is black. Do you think the chestnut one or the black one is formal enough for a morning wedding? Or I need to pick up a oxford cap-toe without brogue?

 

Any comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

post #2397 of 2509
You have two nice pair from which to pick. The Jeffersons are a cut above the main AE line.

Given the options presented, I would say if you meant the "matching" navy trousers are part of a proper suit with the navy jacket, then I would opt for the black wingtips.

On the other hand, if the jacket is truly a navy sport coat, a/k/a an "odd jacket," then I'd suggest some non-matching but complementary pants and go with the chestnut.

I see your point. Thank you very much for the suggestions.

Sure, still waiting on more pics from the photographer. We paid to have the photos taken, don't own the copyrights, and then get to pay again to have them printed. We went into the wrong field :tounge:

 

Ercole has made me a few peices, and they have always allowed me to avoid the too-tight too short look that pervades so much today, even when i was a newb with no knowledge of bespoke or menswear in general. The last pic is a SJ the made for me back in 2013.

Hi All,

 

Looking for your expert advice here. I'm getting married in 2 months and don't have my suit picked out yet. I live in New York. The wedding is in mid-September. The ceremony will be outdoors at 6PM which mean pre-sunset. Does this rule out tuxedos given it'll still be daylight? I'm def leaning towards a suit over a tux anyway but was wondering given the timing I shouldn't even consider a tux. 

 

I'm trying to find something for under $500. Going to Indochino and Suit Supply stores here tmw. Looking at the website I really like this option so far - https://www.indochino.com/product/premium-gray-sharkskin-suit

 

Given the price constraints not sure I can get anything much better.
