    I have two weddings this summer, one in late July, the other in late August. One is outside afternoon wedding in Colorado in the mountains, reception at a historic hotel in town. The other is in upstate NY, in a barn.

    I have a navy suit, but that's too formal. I could just sport slacks, dress shirt and tie, but I'd rather find something a bit more interesting.

    Any advice on what I should be looking into?

    Thanks!

    I'd be thinking about an odd jacket and trou, in cotton or linen.

    Perhaps some great medium brown shell cordovan shoes - derbies of some sort or even a single monk. Sturdy shoes seem appropriate for outdoors and barns and shell is both sturdy and elegant.

    I have AE Strand in Walnut, I was thinking that would be a fine choice.

    Yep - that will do just fine for both weddings. Good color and not too formal.

    DAMN you just talked yourself out of a new pair of shoes!

    Now to settle in on the rest.

    Invest in a linen or beige suit

    Can anyone suggest some online retails who have good selection of casual jackets in smaller sizes (36s).

    Thanks!
