    Kelly, 

     

    Thanks for posting! The guys look great. 

     

    What colour did you choose?  Did you order the suits a little bigger (like some people on this thread have), or give exact measurements to Studio Suits?

     

    Also, I notice you are from Vancouver- me too!  How much was duty?  

     

    Thanks in advance!

    I would love to know the answer to the duty question too! :)

      These look great! Thanks so much for sharing this pic. Did you order the ties from here as well? Congrats. Looks like a gorgeous wedding and bride!

        We chose tropical grey and we ordered the suits to size, I had some issues with this as I sent them to a seamstress to get sized but they did not give us all of the specific measurements we needed, only ones you would need to order a pre set suit. So I ended up following their directions and did true to size on most of them but did round up if it was a half size. It was really nerve wracking but the size worked perfectly for everyone except one guy, and in his case we took it to a seamstress and got it let out an inch or 2 and it fit perfect.

         

        Also if the guy is a bigger man I would add one inch as they were snug fitting and its better safe then sorry. (we added 1.5 or 2 inches for my husbands since we ordered his first and it was waaaay too big. Just had to get it taken in)

         

        All the guys were impressed with the suits and how they fit them perfect and it was a good keep sake since they can wear them again.

         

        As for duty we ordered all the suits in orders of 2 at a time and the hubbys suit on his own and we only got dinged with duty on one suit it seems, which came out to 49 bucks. Us Canadians are always getting ripped off haha.

         

        I hope these pics help out as I was so unsure myself if it would be worth it, and it was for sure. They all looked soooo sharp.

         

        The ties were bought from ebay for 5 bucks each !!  I had originally bought them from ahfashion online for 10 bucks each and they incorrectly sent me a dark green color and would not rectify it for me so we were out 60 bucks. So fyi DONT buy from that company.


        Happily married and now Mrs. West

          Thank you so much for the info!  

           

          We will be ordering from Studio Suits for sure- I think we will ship them to Point Roberts and pick them up.  I will also check out ebay for ties!

            One more question!  Were the guys shirts white or off white?

              love the gray color, but my fiance is leaning toward the tan. What do you think goes best with teal bridesmaid dresses?

                  Just showed my FI this website after being quoted $999 for a local suit. He is impressed, and it makes us feel better that there are other brides out there that have ordered and posted feedback. (thanks so much!) We already ordered the swatches, and will most likely order his suit. But now I'm thinking maybe I want the GMs in vests...it just looks so nice, and now its actually affordable for them! We originally told them it would be casual, dress pants and a white linen shirt...but now I'm thinking it needs to be more formal...decisions, decisions....how did everyone else decide???

                   

                  Anyone else have good suggestions for ties?? My BMs are wearing Coral...and we want matching ties for the GMs.

                   

                  Huge thanks to the original poster for this website find!! We're so excited!!
