    It is not a tuxedo, full stop. It has flap pockets, two buttons, faced lapels, it has side vents, no trouser braid, is worn with a long tie and a normal shirt. It's a tan suit with fancy covered buttons. Nothing wrong with tan for a summer wedding, but linen would be a lot better.

    I just choked on my lunch, reading the title of this thread.

    Tuxedos are meant for formal wear and should almost always be black or midnight navy.

    If you want to go tan or beige, I would go with a suit, which will allow you to get more wears out of it.

    I agree with regards to the woman, she looks good. The guy looks like her brother wearing his prom suit.

    It also has fabric covered buttons, low-cut waistcoat and I think the picture quality does not allow to make a statement regarding the lapel facing (the whole thing is sold / rented by the company as a tux ... so probably there is some faux satin facing). By the way, the also have a classy model in red.

    However, regarding the question of the OP: If you wear this, you have to overdo the shoes too. White, silver, same tan as the suit...

    That's....just not good. As far as your question goes, try on both shades and decide what looks best.

    You don't even have to wear shoes if you don't want.

    There isn't much you can do to make this better or worse.

    OP, why not something like Teva's or Birkenstocks? Or some of the new Nike running shoes that come in neon colors?
