    The only thing I can think of is that you will probably look better (taller, leaner) with a black waistcoat.

    i absolutely agree. i'm pretty average build, but this is all the more motivation for me to get more trim...

    Congratulations on the wedding. What is your budget? I would not recommend Hugo Boss for shoes. They're basically a fashion brand and don't have the sort of craftsmanship you'd want for decent shoes. In the $300-$350 range, Allen Edmonds are an option. If you can't afford this, you can get Allen Edmonds seconds for less. If you can afford to go up to $500, I'd recommend Crockett & Jones. You will look your best in a pair of oxfords if you're wearing a suit.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Budget is around £200-£250 ($300-$375) and unfortunately, I'm in the UK..

    What should my ring-bearer, who will be just shy of 2 and a half, wear to my wedding? I am wearing morning dress, and my groomsmen are wearing mid-grey suits, white shirts, grey and/or navy ties (haven't picked yet) and white linen pocket squares.

    The wedding is August 31st, so he'll be wearing short pants. Should he wear a waistcoat, or a jacket? Bow tie or four in hand?

    Hahaha, anything you can get him into. And tie that ring to him somehow so he doesn't lose it.

    My mom's going to make it, and he's getting fake rings to carry. :p

    Well, I'd imagine people are going to just be cooing about him walking down the aisle, so I really wouldn't sweat it too much. If your mom is making his outfit, just have her make whatever she is comfortable with--I wouldn't go nuts as a) no one will notice really--theyll just be focused OMFGCUTE, and b) it's not like he'll be able to wear it again.

    World of choices. Look at black Oxfords from Pediwear, Meermin, Markowski, etc.

    I have that tie, but not from Kent Wang. I did, however, wear Kent Wang's shepherd check tie at my own wedding. That glen plaid tie from KW would be perfect.

    Great thread, thank-you all for participatiing, just spend some time the past few days reading everything. Thank-you all for your advice. My wedding is September 2014 and most of it is planned. I am trying to get a jump on the rest of the details, one of which is relevant here: tuxedo. My fiance and I really like the look of a three piece tuxedo. I am seeking your advice on where to find (purchase) a good 3 piece tux. I am trying to get a list of designers/places together so I can start narrowing the list down to get a decision. At this point, I want a comprehensive list and will narrow down with respect to design and budget later but for a base line I am thinking less than $2k for the tux. That number came from that fact that we originally like a PRL tux at about that price point. I would also take any advice on footwear while we are at it. I appreciate any advice.

    Yes, I found that site via this thread and spent some time there earlier today. My question was pretty general, apologies for that. Where have other forum members had success with their tuxedos? Are there any places I should avoid (other than the obvious)? Has anyone else done a 3 piece tux and have advice?

    Sorry
