Facet, personally, I like the second suit better.And from what I've gathered from this thread so far, charcoal/grey is just as appropriate as navy for a groom.

They are not de rigeur - nor is morning dress.  They are just fantastic, and ought to be worn at every possible occasion.

I'd say charcoal is actually slightly more appropriate for a wedding because it mimics the colors of morning dress. But they're both completely and totally fine. Personally I like the more open skirt of the second suit much better.

These are the fabrics I hope image shows up this time, thanks for the advice, I actually was planing on passing on the topper since the wedding is in a Japanese garden but the party per se is in a hall inside the garden..

Personally I don't like the red bowtie. But if there's a general Japanese theme and you want to use a color of the Japanese flag for some reason, then I guess better a red bowtie than red anything else.

I bought seven pocket squares from this lady on Etsy.  Per my request, she did them with a rolled edge, not a squared hem.  Definitely recommend them.

He ordered a couple weeks ago, and the wedding is this weekend. Three weeks is just not enough time, especially if additional alterations are required.

The only thing that struck me was the bowtie...I've never seen anyone wear a bow tie with morning dress before. (Caveat: my real-life experiences with morning dress is limited to a couple of weddings I've attended.) why did you choose a bowtie over a long tie?

Nothing wrong with a bow tie with morning dress.  I don't recommend the monocle.

Imthegroom was faster then me. In any case, bow ties are rarer then it used to be during morning hours, but it was quite common before:

I know there is nothing technically wrong with a bow tie with morning dress...it just does not seem right to me. It winds up looking more like a hotel uniform than formalwear.

I think its like any departure from the norm in formalwear. Make sure everything else is spit on, and you look like you've made a conscious choice to be unique. If you get the other details wrong, you look like you don't know what you're doing. That said, I would, personally, go with a subtle pattern in my bow tie, rather than the solid red. But that does cone down to personal preference.

I don't know you that well...but I have a feeling that if anyone spit on your formalwear, they would be harmed with the business end of a hockey stick.... shog[1].gif

Just for because they're not very popular here and I like them, besides I understand they were classically popular with morning dresses in the 19th century therefore they'll always be correct for a morning dress but mostly because I never saw one picture of that look in a South American grooms they're all about matching waistcoats and caveats down here even with the same fabrics and prefab ties which I think is awful and tucky I think That's why..

I believe that this will fall into the category of no eggs given, correctly. Can't wait to see pictures. If bow ties are YOUR style, then be sure to wear one.

Yeah, I was suspecting the the same thing. Thanks for the feedback.
