Is it a faux pas to wear Boss to a jewish wedding?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 

So I have a wedding on Sunday.  The Groom and his family are Jewish, but the wedding won't necessarily be Jewish.  I don't wear suits very often, and while I had planned to buy a new Paul Smith suit for this wedding, I just never got around to it. However, I have an excellent Hugo Boss suit for the wedding, that fits perfectly.

 

Is it a faux pas to wear Hugo Boss to a Jewish wedding (even if not a traditional one)?

If you cut the big identifying manufacturers label off the sleeve first, you should be ok. You can save it and put it back on after the wedding.

Can't tell if this gag is about Boss wearers doing this with the actual label, or a swastika armband reference.

 

Well done, sir. Well done. :worship2:

Phew, for a second there I thought you were suggesting that tag should be permanently removed!

Are you planning on telling everyone you are wearing a Hugo Boss suit?

In my opinion, they have no business being on a off the shelf suit after it has left the shelf.

Kind of let it "slip" on twitter already, where the Groom pulled me up on it.  Hence the more generalist question here.

Is this the final solution? Any other ideas?

Where are you shopping that they fold the suits and display them on shelves?

The company was sold years ago, and iirc, none of the original family has any holdings. I think it's Italian owned.

And they're made in Turkey.

As long as you don't wear it with a brown shirt and black tie. Avoid a red armband if you could too.

These are the general looks you would want to avoid:

LOL, normally it wouldn't be a big deal. But now that the groom is expecting you to show up in a Hugo Boss, you're kinda screwed. What do you want us to tell you? You know the groom better than all of us, I think. Is he going to try to inspect the inside of your jacket for a Hugo Boss marking? Does he know what the pattern/color of the suit is from your Twitter post? If he is, then you should respect his wishes not to wear it.

Kinda thinking this is a troll thread too. Sounds like a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.

I can't believe this is serious, but most of my Jewish friends have boss suits and they're fine, lot of em drive Benz's too. As long as you don't walk around with an SS armband or a swastika tattooed on your forehead I think you'll be fine.

Yeah but he says the person getting married is going to be pissed.

Maybe you need to pick up a seam ripper and take off the inner tag too if he's gonna be anal about it
