So the blue isn't as bright or neon as it appears in the pictures, but it is still not exactly dark/ midnight. This is the link to the item from Black Lapel's site, which I think it more accurately captures the shade: www.blacklapel.com/suits/two-button-solid-royal-blue-tux-shawl-suit.html.

But now I realize that it's kind of ridiculous to post bad pictures, and then asked for reviews, so I'll try to post some better ones tomorrow.

Yes, the blue looks too light. I ordered the Indochino midnight blue for my wedding next month. The Indochino is definitely a dark midnight blue. Your fit does look pretty good based on pictures. There will be tweaks in the future, but for first shot MTM with Black Lapel, it looks very good.

You may also want to post in the Tailor Fit and Alterations thread if you want more comments.

But yes, getting a custom or made-to-measure suit for yourself and then rentals for the background guys is a good compromise. And no, it will not be impossible to get a rental to fit properly, you just need to be a discerning shopper and go to the best place in your city.

 

But at that point your rental can be $300 or more.  A Men's Wearhouse suit (or Moore's up here) taken to a good tailor for proper alterations, can cost the same, and, the first day you wear it, it's going to look good.  And, while it may not have great longevity, it will last at least as long as the rental.  Rentals are just money down a hole, and rarely can you find ones that fit.

This.

It's their wedding. They put black tie on the invite. Other guests will be in black tie..

To be more accurate, they said black tie optional. And at 11:30 am, there's no way I'd be in a tux. I'd bring it with me to change into if the party goes late enough. And let's hope the party does go late enough. biggrin.gif

Related question: Both of my groomsmen will be in dark (but non-matching) suits. I was planning on giving them a white pocket square and a tie to wear. Since their suits (and my stroller) won't be matching to begin with, I was thinking that having matching wedding ties may work better than everyone with a different tie. What do you think?

Still different ties. The idea is not to look like everyone planned their outfits together. Matching ties implies such a conspiracy.

Agreed. Get a couple of different wedding ties.

Are the bridesmaids going to match? If so, then the groomsmen should match.

I am going to my brother in law's sisters wedding this weekend and I was planning on wearing this combo, I am curious to what people think.
I am wearing a light gray suit with either brown or black shoes. I haven't decided yet.

Definitely brown.

Hi guys, sorry, I put this in the wrong place before.

I'm after some opinions selecting ties for the groom and 2 groomsmen. They will be in morning dress with white shirt and dove grey vest. Bout is a white rosebud. I'm thinking a glen plaid for the groom, or maybe number 8? I'm after 3 ties that work well together without looking like a uniform. The picture shows the 11 possibilities I have found so far.

Also, if we went with a buff waistcoat instead, should we go for navy/white instead of black/white designs?

I like numbers 1 and 2. I don't care much for number 5 at all. Just my own preference fwiw.

I like 1,2, 4 and 9. I think 7 and 8 are too light.

I'd take GP for the groom, then 1 and 4 for the groomsmen.
