I'm going to get a 3p suit done for my wedding and would love to have some advice for you.
I'd like a very sober and understated dark/midnight blue, very formal in a way, but with a few tweaks that would remind of a more traditional morning coat.
I was thinking rope shoulders, peak lapels and a (possibly horseshoe shaped?) DB waistcoat, possibly in a light (grey?) colour, a bit like that:
Not sure about the Prince of Wales pattern on the waistcoat, but I could give it some thought.
As far as colour goes (and I quite like the waistcoat, too), here's what I was thinking:
And for the tie, I had in mind dark blue with dots (or similar pattern) matching the waistcoat colour (as on the first picture basically). Drakes seem to do quite a few ties in that spirit.
I'd like to know what you think, whether you like it or find it very loud and clumsy and of very bad taste, as I'm sure knowledgeable people here would have plenty of ideas on what to do and what to avoid to achieve the initial idea: a nice wedding suit with that subtle play around traditional wedding garment.
Please be nice, I'm pretty new to all this :)
