Whats that category? I'll be sure to post some pics ASAP

It is supposed to be "no effs given" but my phone changed the word - it means not giving any f@#k's, but wearing your own style.  Doing it correctly means looking excellent at the same time.  Rock the bow tie, is my main point.

For what it's worth, the Japanese diplomat villians from the Tintin books always wore bow ties with their morning dress. Most of those books were written in the late 1920s and early 1930s, IIRC.

 

I think that's the first time I ever saw morning dress, albeit in cartoon form.

Oh now I get it thanks! I also think that before before I go to the tailor I have to decide the cut of the coat which in my opinion will determine the appropriate look of the bow tie or the one in intending, my point is that the classic single buttoned morning coat that leaves a lot of room in the chest is perfect for a necktie but since I'm going for the bow tie perhaps it will work better with a 1880 three buttoned morning coat like this:
Do you think I might be right?

Do not do that! You have a waistcoat to play with the V opening. Anything other then a 1 button morning coat will look costumy/vintage.. You will probably have it open most of the time anyway

Maybe you're right

So, would you recommend a double breasted or a simple breasted to enhance the look of the bow ties because I was thinking on a nonback waistcoat just in case I take the coat off so I can show a bit of my suspenders...

Suspenders are underwear -- they aren't meant to be shown off.

Or as blacktieguide.com puts it:
Because you would never be so uncouth as to remove your jacket at a formal event your suspenders will never be seen by anyone other than your intimate companions.

Personally I think single breast is better in this case as you can have it higher, while I prefer and w ll be ordering, a more open double breasted for a tie.


Forget about showing suspenders

I agree that a single breasted, one button is the best look.  As before, since you are going with the bow tie, I would limit your other details to be very classic and traditional.  I wore a single breasted, one-button, with a link closure - it's actually vintage, about 80 years old.  Are you having your waistcoat made, buchoel brusco?  And, have you read the morning dress section of blacktieguide.com, morningdressguide.com and http://andrewsandpygott.wordpress.com/ ?  All should be read front to back before setting out on getting your morning dress.  Make sure you show roughly the same amount of waistcoat above and below the button point of your coat.

Hello,

First of all I'd really like to thank Veremund, ImTheGroom, and everyone else who intervened whith suggestions and ideas in this journey of mine to my wedding attire which I found profoundly interesting and entertaining.
The last two days I took my time (cos I've got some offs from work) to put together all the information and advices to finally came to a decision and of course I want to share to with you. First of all I had to quit the morning dress because requiring it for my guests here in Bolivia is practically impossible most people don't even know what that is; here's its formal wear (suits) and informal wear (jeans or chinos) so I was intending to give morning dresses to my groomsmen but it was out of our budget so I found inadequate to wear one myself as I would be the only one but reading the suggested Andrews and Pygott link I found the semi formal morning dress and fell immediately cos I've already had the cloths for my morning dress which I really fancy, that sorted I headed to the best tailor in town and dropped my clothes and have the tailor meassured me and in a couple of weeks I have my first try once it's done I'll share some pics for sure!! Well thanks again this's been really helpful!

One more thing I'd like to share some pics of the grooms trend here in Santa Cruz Bolivia for you to understand how awful and uncouth men taste is here and why I really don't want to fall in the vast mass of poorly dressed grooms, would you be intersted?

Regards,

Bucho

I was the only one in morning dress at my wedding, with groomsmen in grey suits, and fathers in strollers (semi-formal).  I think your choice of a stroller is an excellent one, and if it is what you want, then you should absolutely do it.  But, no one thought it was strange for me to be the only one.
