Get married in a suit, then change into a tux for the reception. That way your suit will be more afternoon appropriate (and you'll have more leeway in the fabrics), but you will still be evening appropriate in a tux...

 

I did this - well, I wore morning dress for the ceremony, not a suit, but then I changed for the evening festivities.  It feels pretty swanky to change for the evening.  You could get a more fun, summery colour of suit, that will be good for many future summer weddings you'll attend as a guest.  Beige, light grey, light blue, etc.  If the dress is quite formal, linen/cotton is probably out, but a summer weight wool is a good one I'm sure you'll wear lots.

 

Also, if you're going to do a tux (even if you're going to do it during the day), sorry if I'm repeating others' advice here, read www.BlackTieGuide.com.

Post 26816: Communication misunderstanding between two posters - recommendation:
I understand the irritation, but that's why the difference counts:
wrong: "you didn't answer me"
right:
"I got no reply"
It's also more exact, true to observation.

Is there anyone out there other than SuitSupply who makes a nice casual jacket in smaller sizes (32 and 34) for a decent price (under 400)?  I'm looking for a casual blue blazer for summer and none of the SS options are really doing it for me.

Any duty fees shipped from Canda to US? If so, what to expect? (pair of carminas)
post #26828 of 32725
Duties are always a possibility when importing goods, but I don't think the rate is very high for you guys even if you do get dinged.
post #26829 of 32725
As the American receiver of things from Canada, I've never gotten dinged by duty fees.

However, a Canadian friend proxied some stuff for me once from Harry Rosen and I think she said something about having to pay duty on it.

How do chelsea's with brogueing on the toe fit into the formality picture? I think they're dressy, but are they out of place casually, i.e. with jeans?

I've asked about this a lot -- the consensus is, most of the forum's chelsea fans don't love 'em and haven't taken the time to think about how to wear 'em. :rimshot:

 

I like regular chelseas with jeans, and since the broguing only dresses them down, I think they'd be quite at home.

So out of place with a suit?

I don't want wingtips on the chelseas. Though I've seen some with a medallion that I don't mind.

Oh, the floating medallion kind. I misunderstood. That doesn't really make a material difference, but I don't like floating medallions.

 

Generally, the kind with a wingtip is in tan, which is the big reason I wouldn't like them with a business suit. I am fine with chelsea boots with suits, as long as the material of the chelsea is appropriate for the cloth of the suit -- standard rules apply on that front.

If a jacket cuff is unfinished, how much length is "lost" by finishing them?

Depends on how much the tailor needs to take up to make the sleeve the right length. The whole point of that is to allow alteration to the exact length needed easy.
