You may want to buy your tailor these pattern (only 1.50 Euro) http://www.arteinscena.it/dispense-di-cucito/consigli-per-la-realizzazione-di-una-giacca-a-falde Good details of the front 1 button.


And see this as further reference (although the front is either an old style-3 buttons and/or evening tailcoat or even Frock, they are all bodycoats and the back is built the same):






The back from the morning dress guide:

IndeedI Plus 1.

Add my congratulations and best wishes to the lovely bride as well.

Thank you all for the compliments. The dress was hand made by my wife and my mother. My mom designed the bespoke pattern; she is quite the seamstress. Apparently, this style of dress must be entirely hand sewn, so it was a remarkable undertaking, and very well worth it in the end. And I get post #1000!

I will try to send some pictures of the back later today. There are one or two.

As requested - but do be sure to make sure your tailor has a morning coat pattern from the UK - or buy a vintage one from which he can make a pattern.  The material can be worn out, as long as all the pieces are still in their original shapes.  They can have holes, or be stained, or threadbare.  For example, for under $100: http://www.savvyrow.co.uk/products/clearance-sale-1920s-1930s-vintage-black-doeskin-wool-morning-coat-38-39s

As for a proper pattern, rather then spending $100, I would buy your tailor the 1.50 euro paper pattern I posted a link of in my previous post (http://www.arteinscena.it/dispense-di-cucito/consigli-per-la-realizzazione-di-una-giacca-a-falde). The pictures on the same post were meant to highlight just the back panels construction, but those patterns do not have the key front dart (as in the first link/pattern for sale).


I think the following pictures show enough details of an actual finished coat

For my wedding I plan to wear a 3 piece black tuxedo with vest, winged black buttoned collared shirt and a self tied black bow tie. Similar to below

 

 

Now the groommen will be wearing 2 piece black notch lapel suit with white shirt and self tied black bow tie. I've been advised against this as it'll be difficult to distinguish us apart - what are your thoughts? Can you guys suggest an alternative?

 

Thanks

Unless you and the groomsmen are triplets or quadruplets, no one should have a problem telling you apart.

You've been advised against this by ... ?  Anyway, when you kiss the bride, anyone who is still confused will figure it out.  I highly recommend reading www.BlackTieGuide.com before making final decisions on your Tux.

I'm glad that the general consensus seems to be in my favor!

 

ImTheGroom - is there anything in particular you would like to warn me about given that you just got married? :) I have read and I'm trying my best to adhere to the guidelines. 

 

I have already decided on a tux - 3 piece with black vest. Satin peak lapel jacket no vents. White winged collar shirt with self-tied black bow tie. Pulling this off on the other hand is another story...
