post #26806 of 31195

Someone told me about uniqlo here which has great prices. But for some reason some of the pages I get an error message when I click on them. Not sure what that is all about. Either way, it definitely has some nice stuff on there!

Try Dappered.com for sale alerts every week. J Crew Factory has good clothes for the price and uniqlo is a very good resource. Try clearing your cache and visiting their website again.

I don't have good advice for Naples but I can give you a few pointers for Florence. I found this guide excellent when I went last year. The only other place I found that was exceptional was Arturo & C SRL, near Il Duomo. They sell great shirts for around the same price as Boggi.

I will also suggest stores like JCrew, Polo Ralph Lauren, & Brooks Brothers. They can be easily had for less than retail online, and in stores. I would suggest using online avenues only after you have verified your appropriate size in the items you want, in each brand (because they will differ). This will mean some store browsing will be necessary, at least in the beginning for you, but well worth it in the long run.

I would also suggest to not neglect upgrading your shoes to go with your upgraded wardrobe. Good entry staples on this forum (available in the US) are Allen Edmonds and Alden, or even some Cole Haans or Johnston & Murphys if your budget does not allow for the former.

Good luck to you sir...

Hey guys -- I desperately need help planning for my wedding!

I've been a long-time reader of this thread (and sometimes poster), and I'm getting married this June! The wedding's going to be an outside wedding at my family's farm -- think backyard/farmyard elegant. My fiancee has her dress, but I don't know what to wear.

I love the idea of wearing a tux, and have considered getting one made by SS or TaT...but I'm very concerned about heat. Temperatures can easily be in the high 70s that time of year with some humidity, and I generally hate being hot. Our wedding's going to be an afternoon wedding, so that's that. And I don't love the white dinner jacket look.

To the extent that it matters, I'm on the slender and short side and generally think I look pretty good in tuxes/suits (the "vest" look isn't really my style). My budget's about $750 total for clothes, which I think allows me somewhere in the area of $500 to spend on the suit/tux. And I'd ideally like to get something I can wear more than once. I do not own any tuxes, but I do have several suits (navy, two charcoal, mid grey, and light grey) -- so I have much less of a suit niche to fill than tux.

Any suggestions? Thoughts about me getting a grey tux and skipping the cumberbund in lieu of suspenders/a belt? How else can I keep myself from overheating while still looking good?

Thanks!!!

Seersucker.

A daytime wedding in a farmyard does not demand a tuxedo.

I would say that you could have a blast and be preppy and wear linen scs and repp ties. I think that'd be awesome.

Light blue scs, white pants, penny loafers.

Probably not sf approved though.

Everyone on here will tell you a tux is no good for an outdoor daytime wedding. Also if you don't have tux already I would assume you do not attend many/any black tie events so do you really need to fill that hole in your wardrobe?
I just got married last week at a winery. Wore an unlined tropical weave wool suit to beat the heat and it worked beautifully. The only sweating I experienced was from nerves!
Also check out the wedding q & a thread for more info and inspiration if you haven't already.

That is super helpful, thanks. If our wedding starts at 3:30 and runs until midnight or so, is it an evening wedding or a daytime wedding for purposes of dress?

And to clarify further, I don't feel the need to wear anything formal like a tux. It's more like I think it'd be fun to. But I'm getting the sense that a tux wouldn't be super (a) appropriate for a daytime wedding, and (b) super appropriate for a backyard outdoor wedding. My fiancee thinks that a tux would suit her dress well, but is really leaving this entirely up to me. My main concern is that I'd like to feel like I'm wearing something special -- and given that I have business suits in the major colors already, I'm struggling a little as to how to make it feel special. Sadly, I'm not going to be able to pull of searsucker.

For more business casual type pieces, I think uniqlo is a really good place to start looking at as well. They don't really fill the gap for the higher end of formality but I wear their cashmere sweaters, have a cotton blazer, and I hear their shirts are pretty alright, though I personally get custom ones.

3:30 start is way too early for a tux. If you want to go all out you can wear a lounge suit or morning suit to the ceremony and then duck out afterwards and get changed into a tux for the reception.

 

I had a similar issue with wanting to differentiate the wedding suit from daily business wear. One option is to go 3 piece; particularly a nice buff or grey double breasted waistcoat, but then you run afoul of the overheating issue. In the end I just changed a few details I hadn't experimented with before (peak lapel, side tabs and braces over belt loops, etc) and used it as an excuse to get a higher end suit than I am used to. After that you just make sure you look your BEST. new shirt, formal wedding tie, bull shined shoes, etc..
