Hi all, I have checked past threads and cannot find one that covers this topic, but if there is, please direct me to it I am going to a wedding at the beginning of September. Lovely event in the English countryside. I am investing in a morning suit, something I will keep hopefully for my own wedding one day. I'd like some experienced advice on whether I should go for a black or charcoal grey morning coat. Black is extremely traditional, most men will be wearing standard black coat, striped trousers etc. I don't want to be a peacock. However I have found a lovely charcoal coat, and I know grey goes well with a few ties i have. Black coat Charcoal grey coat Is a charcoal grey morning coat acceptable? If so any suggestions on types of trousers I should go for with it? Options I have are: - Matching grey (boring - Black with grey stripes - Navy :/ - Grey pup-tooth - Any others? Also, do you think I should go for traditional black Derby shoes, or could I perhaps wear Gucci loafers? Or is this too much? Thanks in advance!
