i don't think i stated anywhere in my post that me dressing in what i would feel most comfortable in was anything but the wishes of my bride or her family. Really? From your first paragraph: "While usually very prepared it has taken me close to a year since our engagement to get my bride-to-be (and her mother...and her aunt, sisters, etc.) to warm up to the idea of me not wearing a tuxedo." listen, i know this is the "Men's Clothing" style section of styleforum but honestly, i'm fairly certain that on a monthly basis i spend more on denim and italian sportwear than you spend on matching your tie to your eyeglasses. if you think i leave the house in cargo pants and a nascar t-shirt in the morning, i'm sorry to disappoint you. Really? Also from your first paragraph: "I own my own business and wear worn Japanese denim, old school Vans and button-down plaids 364 days a year." So then what do you do with the EXPENSIVE "denim and Italian sportwear" that apparantly is more expensive than my Oxxford and Brooks Bros. suits? Is it on display?
