    Where would I start looking for AE seconds? On their site, or places like Overstock.com?

    Agreed. I forgot to ask them to add one onto my MTM suit. I asked my guy when I was in for the first fitting, and he said it wouldn't be a problem to add a loop. In fact, I could probably almost do it myself, and I can barely sew anything.

    This one is on the shortlist of possible tie options for me and/or my groomsmen.

    +1. Unless you want to get all creative and go for something loud, I'd try to stick to something close to your pants.

    For some reason, it took me a long time in life to realize that matching your socks to your pants generally looks a lot better than matching your socks to your shoes. [​IMG]

    I am also considering the striped trousers from Clermont Direct. Since they are one of the cheaper options I've found, I may end up going with them. Just hope they won't be too dark paired with my dark grey suit jacket.

    Figure out what style you want and in what size, and then call their outlets--can find locations and phone numbers on their website. They are usually pretty helpful about it.

    Shoot them an email here:

    They're very helpful. Park Ave seconds run around $270. The seconds just mean that there was a small defect from the factory which prohibits them from selling it. They sell these "seconds" at a discounted price. Oftentimes you can barely even tell what is wrong with them. New, they're about $345.

    I've got a wedding to go to the last weekend in July. There will be 3 issues though that might complicate things:

    1. It will be hot. Really hot;
    2. It will be in South America (Guyana);
    3. It is a Hindi wedding;
    4. My g/f has decided that she is wearing a sari (she is neither Indian nor Hindu)

    I have a nice summery olive/taupe Givenchy suit but if she ends up wearing a bright coloour (Hindu weddings are very colourful), it might be hard to coordinate so now I'm thinking about navy linen suit.

    Thoughts?

    For the reception, I highly suggest navy, grey or a black. The indian dresses - whether be it saree or lehenga are extremely bright and your bright colors won't pair up very well. However, for the actual hindu wedding, aren't you wearing a sherwani or a kurta-pyjama at a minimum? Not seen anybody wear a suit during the ceremony

    What is the dress code like? Sounds like it might be reasonably casual.

    Me, I'd be wearing that linen suit in a heartbeat.

    Don't worry about coordinating with her. If you want to get in the spirit of the thing by wearing more color, you can do that with your tie.

    Quick q, what should I wear for the wedding ceremony at the church? I already have the suit for the reception at night, though. Thinking about this assemble for the morning, but with chocolate brown shoes

    Wear a tie to the Church and then for the evening event, wear a different tie with the suit you already have.

    Well, it's gonna be the exact same suit as the pic. So different tie or different tie and shirt as well?

    I'm a guest at a Summer wedding, I intend to wear a slimline beige linen suit, with pink and white striped shirt, baby pink tie and pocket square, the buttons holes are cream rosebud, footwear is a concern, tan brogues and tan belt are an option, any other suggestions?
