    My point was not to be able to identify the groom. It was to give him some special status on His day.

    I've strayed from 'identifying myself' on my wedding day. I don't like the idea of being more formal than my groomsmen, and I didn't ask them to all wear the same tie or colors, so it's not like I can easily differentiate myself.

    Thanks - but I was thinking tie wise if most people will be all decked out in mostly the same garb.

    Most people do not wear a morning suit to a wedding. Hell most people don't even wear what I would call a proper lounge (stroller) suit to a wedding.

    A Morning suit is white tie for the day, and includes a tails coat, wing collar, waistcoat and top hat (I think the appropriate colour is dove gray for the jacket). My uncle got married in one.

    OK, let's see if I got this right. The first three are wedding ties because of the color and pattern. The fourth is a macclesfield, but not a wedding tie because of the color pattern, correct?

    These wedding ties are swell! Is is OK to wear them at occasions other than a wedding?

    This blue glen check is really nice.

    Wow. It is so not 'His' day. The day before the wedding is the last 'His' day for a long time. [​IMG] As for special status? A buttonhole usually works.

    Here are a few:

    The H&B and Powell are probably a bit dark to wear to a wedding.

    Brooks sells them too, at least at 346 Madison.

    So does RLPL at the Mansion.

    I bought this one fairly recently, in part out of a motivation to have a decent tie for attending weddings:

    I might pick one up as well. That should make Tomasso happy [​IMG].


    Just be careful that the Drakes non-knit ties are pretty thick. A four-in-hand is relatively small, but will definitely be bigger than what you typically wear. They have a pretty nice sweet spot for the knot, however.
