post #22561 of 28243

For my wedding I decided not to go the tux route, as I didn't want to purchase a new one and rentals don't fit me well. I bought a suit from Zara recently from their new collection. It's a charcoal color and I've already had it tailored to my measurements. My question is, how can I make it look as formal as possible for my wedding, but modern at the same time? I purchased a matching vest with it as well. I'm thinking of wearing a white dress shirt with it and a charcoal bow tie. Can I wear the bow tie with the vest, or does that not work? Should I wear the vest with a white shirt and charcoal tie? There are endless options and I'm a bit overwhelmed. Can anyone give me some advice? Our wedding colors are shades of orange, yellow, red, pink, spring colors and she's wearing a traditional white dress. I was also thinking of incorporating our wedding colors in my socks as a solid shade, but don't know how to pair it with the dress shirt and tie/ bow tie.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

What color tie works with a burgundy/white Bengal stripe shirt and a gray suit? I thought about a navy with white dots, but I didn't want to look like an American flag (though I guess today would be the day to pull it off).

You have a lot going on here. First off, congrats on the wedding!

 

Second, Zara doesn't make quality suits. If you have some additional $$, I'd suggest getting an MTM suit, since it is, after all, your wedding! If you're in the NYC area there are some great options including vendors here on StyleForum like Andrew Lock, etc. PM for recommendations if you'd like.

 

Third, if you are committed to the Zara suit, definitely opt for a different color tie. Don't have the tie color match your suit color. If your theme is spring colors, go with that instead!

 

Good luck

Thank you. I'm on the opposite side of the country from NYC, so those options won't work for me unfortunately. Also, I would get a MTM suit, but the wedding was planned quickly and everywhere I called is booked. Looks like I'm going to have to do the best with what I got. eh.gif

Trying to find some slim fitting, good quality dress pants and chinos for less than 100. Names, places, ebay storefronts? 

 

I'm about 29.5 waist, so it's sort of complicated... 


Also:

SHOULD I?

:D

When Incotex Ivory goes on sale, it can be had for less than $100. And damn, you can fit into a size 26?

Dinner with some old friends tonight but looks like it's going to rain, what shoes should I wear?

  • Suede desert boots with crepe soles
  • Leather wingtips with leather soles
  • Leather bluchers with rubber soles

 

Right now I'm leaning towards the bluchers because I'm scared the rain will ruin the suede boots and the leather soles.

Can soft shoulders be removed from a blazer?  I have a blue blazer that I love,  But I am not comfortable with the shoulders.

A good friend of mine is going to get married in a few weeks, and the bride and groom have asked all guests to add a bit of green to their outfit.

 

I was thinking, perhaps a green tie, but ties aren't allowed, they said. The groom will be wearing a grey suit with a green shirt, so I'm not sure if wearing a green shirt myself would be a good idea. Maybe a green pocket square. But how should I fold it, and what colour shirt should I wear with it? Would I be able to pull it off with a white shirt, or would I look like a complete idiot? I have absolutely no idea. The suit I have is quite dark. It's not black, more like a dark grey. I'm not sure what I should be wearing, and what would be a good combination. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No ties allowed?  Get new friends!

 

Or alternatively, I suggest a light grey suit and a white shirt, with a green silk PS, green socks, and even green shoes if you can bear it.  

 

$12 from "The Tie Bar" for the large one (get the large one, it's easier to fold)

 

 

 

About $20 from "Mes Chausettes Rouges" - these are probably my own favourite socks.

 

 

 

 

There are a few options for cheap green shoes but they're not very nice.  If you're aiming a bit higher, I am personally lusting after these shell cordovan beauties from Carmina in Spain, about $550 to you.

 

 

But really, a wedding with no ties?  What the hell is wrong with these people?  (Normal advice would be: never wear a suit without a tie, it's wrong.)

Ridiculous people. Dress as a leprechaun.

Seriously, are they having a wedding or a theme party?

Hello people! I have noticed that you are a bunch of guys with great knowledge about basically everything concerning clothes. For a while now I have been looking for the suit in this picture, so I thougt i would try my luck here. From the looks of it it seems to be the most comfortable thing ever, and the fit is perfect. Would be grateful for any advice and tips on where to find it (or some other suit in the same category).

Suits are comfortable... When they fit right.
