    I am getting married in maui and i want to find the right suit. I was leaning towards a black suit but not a tux. I wanted to keep it formal but not to formal. I came across suit this suit on STP. I was not sure that the ticket pocket would be appropriate for a wedding?

    I don't know brooklyn. I think it is far too formal for an island wedding. What will your partner-to-be wear? A formal wedding gown? I'd take the opportunity to wear something more colorful and, well, less stilted. Congrats, btw.

    Do you mean a traditional wedding gown? With the train, etc.? If that's the case I'll temper my "too formal" comments a bit. I still think an island wedding provides an opportunity to have a little sartorial fun.

    I do agree with you that this should provide me with an "opportunity to have a little sartorial fun." but what does that mean. as you can tell i need help[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Classic Italian wedding attire; dark charcoal grey suit, white shirt, silver tie.

    Black is for funerals.

    I wouldn't go with black or with a ticket pocket. Both are at odds with the moment.

    If you want fun, what about something like this linen number from Brooks?

    Thanks for the pic. I was thinking about a linen suit but i worry about wrinkling. I think i have ruled out the suit from STP.

    so i have tried on some different summer suits. most of them are much like the color of the linen one from BB and some colors that could be described as sand. Maybe because of my skin tone(asian) it does not seem to look right on me??
