I am young guy living in a western European country where morning dress is still worn at certain weddings. A few members of my close family are getting married soon including someone in my immediate family. I will thus be required to wear a morning coat, which delights me. For another wedding in my immediate family a few years back, I rented one, but this time I decided to buy one even though I may still be growing a few cm's. I would like this forum's nice people's advice on a few things.
I would like to know:
1) Your opinion on the colour of the coat: dark grey or black.
Note: If grey you can skip to 3) because I will buy it in my country.
2) Your opinion on where to buy one, which will probably be in London since it has more options than my home town or country.
I have already found a few nice RTW examples in my price range:
I have also found a reasonable "bespoke" option and would like to know what you think the company:
3) Your opinion on tasteful waistcoat / necktie combinations
I have decided to be more conservative with the waistcoat. DB, most likely grey or buff but would like to know what ties would be young and appropriate enough for me to wear.
4) Which of these accessories can I incorporate in my outfit without looking ridiculous:
a) A pocket watch
b) A grey top hat
c) An umbrella for a late summer wedding
d) A slipped waistcoat
The items of my outfit I am already decided on are a white, french cuffed shirt, braces and black cap toe balmorals.
Thanks in advance,
