I have checked past threads and cannot find one that covers this topic, but if there is, please direct me to it
I am going to a wedding at the beginning of September. Lovely event in the English countryside.
I am investing in a morning suit, something I will keep hopefully for my own wedding one day.
I'd like some experienced advice on whether I should go for a black or charcoal grey morning coat.
Black is extremely traditional, most men will be wearing standard black coat, striped trousers etc.
I don't want to be a peacock. However I have found a lovely charcoal coat, and I know grey goes well with a few ties i have.
Charcoal grey coat
Is a charcoal grey morning coat acceptable? If so any suggestions on types of trousers I should go for with it?
Options I have are:
- Matching grey (boring
- Black with grey stripes
- Navy :/
- Grey pup-tooth
- Any others?
Also, do you think I should go for traditional black Derby shoes, or could I perhaps wear Gucci loafers? Or is this too much?
Thanks in advance!
