Wedding Suit - Help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I am looking for some help. I will be getting married in February, and we have decided upon a wearing a "black suit". Simple but not really. I am looking for you opinions on my best options.

 

Things to consider. I want a slim fit, all black, 2 button suit. I am 6'3 (slim) but will likely need to let the pants out some as I got an ass. Looking to spend up to $600-700.  I live in Canada so that makes things a little tougher.

 

With free returns available now most places I am open to ordering online, tailoring local if possible.

 

Any tips would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

The Groom

Don't wear a black suit. Read the wedding suit thread.

Here we go again with style forums group think, herd mentality.  I have done extensive research on the Internet on what the colour black represents.  The term "elegant" appears again, and again, and again....    A scientific study in Evolutionary Psychology by Roberts et al showed that both men and women were deemed to be the most attractive when they wore the colour black.  God forbid anybody who want to appear elegant and attractive at their own wedding!!   Many professionals who have made a successful career in  the fashion industry will also agree.  But these amateurs think they know more and have better taste that these professionals.

 

Notice that you did not ask for advise on what to wear, just on where to buy a suit.  The Trad police offered their opinions anyway. I suspect that these people suffer from melanophobia (fear of the colour black).  That is why they think that black is "dreary".

From my extensive internet research, I think you have melanophilia.

Great comeback!!!  Very intelligent answer.  That was a knock out blow.  I do not know what to say.   I am staggering. 

 

Those  who are truly interested in the truth can do their own research and can decide for themselves.

I think if a guy wants a black suit that he is only going to use for evening events, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It definitely should not be used in most business situations.

Don't worry Socrates, this is nothing. You should see them jump all over any groom who (GASP) deigns to wear RENTED FORMALWEAR!!!!

This study?
https://dspace.stir.ac.uk/handle/1893/10786

Where they weren't testing suits (they were in t-shirts and thus in one color only instead of a coordinated outfit, where you have to at least take into consideration suit, shirt, and tie color) nor was anyone wearing Navy or Charcoal grey (the study may simply be picking up that people prefer a dark color, not black exclusively). I'm guessing if you had suits of the six colors used in the study and asked people which one to wear to a wedding, everyone would say black, because the others would be more inappropriate (so clearly not a useful study in this context).

Additionally, if someone was basing wearing a black suit off of that study they could also equally conclude wearing a red suit was a good idea.
