They are really sharp and the shade of grey is perfect for the beach. Exactly what I had envisioned. It's pretty pricey but with the duties and shipping we would've paid ordering from Linen Suits, it evens out and everyone can try on their outfits prior to purchasing. My FI is wearing a suit and the groomsmen will be wearing the grey linen pants and the vest. I am really happy with them!  

 

Confirmation that they no longer do the light gray indeed..  How was the cut of the pant at Le Chateau?? My FI has huge thighs (did athletism as a teen/early adulthood) and is really more of a relaxed look.. anything slim fitted really isn't his style..

My FI is 6'5 and 240 lbs. He plays hockey and has very large muscular thighs. The pants worked perfectly. We ordered a 36. I was really worried about the pants being to tight around his legs but the fit is perfect and it looks so sharp. We just bought the groomsmen's vests/pants from there as well. I'm so glad I found them and they are so sharp!

We finally received my FI suit. The jacket fits perfectly but we went wrong in the pants. Or he could have lost some weight. He loves the suit.

any tips on how to order the pants? do you think it was the measuring or the fact that your FI lost weight? I'm so nervous about ordering because I hear some people had pants that weren't roomy enough in the leg and now I hear that the pants were too big. I saw a post a few pages back about adjusting the measurements in order to make sure the fit works, and I wanted to see if you had taken that advice and the pants still came out too big? thank you!

We did take the advice of adding the extra measurement. it was around the waist were the pants are too big. We followed the instructions and did a pretty good job with the jacket. I was nervous about the pants so I preferred them being bigger than too small. I am a novice when it comes to measurements on clothes. They emailed us since we were taking a while to actually make the purchase. They gave us some more tips on the pants but I was still not confident of our measurement.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
