(Jones New York gray stripe peak lapel suit)
a darker gray for "the Fathers" - my Dad, the Mister's dad, and our officiant
(Kenneth Cole charcoal multi stripe suit)
and black for the best man and groomsman
(Pronto Platinum black stripe suit)
You can't really tell from these pictures, but all of the suits are pinstriped and because that element carries through the whole thing looks really cohesive. The men folk did good!
Then the guys took off to go find shirts and ties and I barely had to participate in the process.* They found a light purple shirt that looked good with all three suit styles that we ended up purchasing and three different ties - one to go with each suit style. The Mister found a nice pair of slip on shoes that worked with every suit and voila - we were out of there by noon. It only took so long because everyone had to get measured and the salesman took a while writing up the order and figuring out what they had in stock and what needed to be ordered.
Did you do suits for your wedding instead of tuxes? Were you pleasantly surprised by your guys' fashion sense?
* I did have to put my foot down on one tie that looked like the tie version of one of Bill Cosby's sweaters. But other than that I didn't have to really speak up other than to say "yes" when they asked me if I approved of what they picked.
