    My fiance got his suit and we like it. We did the measurements ourselves and kept them pretty much exact, but rounded up based on other girls saying they are slim fit.  They are telling the truth! The suit fits my fiance, but he would prefer it a tad larger...so he is going lose five pounds lol. The company was really good with communication and clarified some of the measurements (he has very broad shoulders and they inquired if we mismeasured they also let us know we sent the incorrect pant opening-we forget to double it). We are having the rest of the groomsmen order from them.

    The fabric choices are really nice, and they shipped unbelievably fast! Also, my FI discovered that he actually owns a pair of linen pants from them from a previous DW that he was in a couple of years ago, and he loved them! :)

      Glad to hear the suit worked out!


      How much do you reccommend we should round up?  Approx how many measurements did you have to take?

        I am so thankful for this thread!! This is definitely where we'll be ordering. Just trying to decide what the groomsmen will wear. We were thinking that maybe my FI will wear a suit (Hawaiian Grey) and the groomsmen (3) will wear the same colour but only the pants and vests. My bridesmaids are wearing coral so I think they will also wear coral ties. I was also thinking that maybe the groomsmen should be in a darker grey (tropical grey) with just the pants and vests and my FI in the lighter grey (Hawaiian Grey), full suit so he really stands out. It's so hard to decide!

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!!

          Hi Sillafeliz! Any luck on finding coral ties? My BMs are wearing David's bridal Coral Reef and it's hard to find coral ties that match that shade because it's a bit more pink. 

          I am also having a hard time deciding on the GMs attire. We also were thinking casual but now we are getting married in a gazebo so I feel like it's a bit more formal. Although nowadays, it seems more common for the guys wear suits/vests/dress shoes on the beach or in a gazebo.


          Anyway, the vests do look really sharp!! My FI wants to be in a suit and I've googled tons pics and it looks so nice when the GMs are in a vest and the groom in a suit. What colour are you ordering?

          Has anyone ordered the preset sizes? My FI has a suit already and we were wondering if we could just take the preset sizes from that. Also, if he usually wears a size 34x 28 in pants, is that what I should order? We are not interested in doing custom because it is too much of a hassle to ask each of the groomsmen to get measured. 

          Any help on the preset sizes is appreciated!

              Do they do ties as well or are you ladies ordering those separate?

                We had been looking for a coral tie for the groom for a long time.  Probably looked in about 30 stores over the past few months and online.  There is nothing.  We wanted to match the Pantone colour firecracker that is the maid of honours dress colour.   Finally ended up going with a retro navy and white cotton tie that we bought at JosBank for $5! He really likes it and it will look good in photos against his tan linen Studio Suit.  


                We are waiting for the best man's matching tan linen suit to arrive.  He's going to have on the same white shirt as groom with an open collar and no tie.


                We found white no-iron french cuff shirts at Banana Republic outlet last week on sale for $50 each.  


                I think the ensemble is finally complete!

                  I started a new thread about matching ties with bm dresses, but I thought I should post it here too!



                  Hi All!


                  My bridesmaids are wearing a Bill Levkoff dress in "Horizon"- a bright, royal blue colour.  I have been trying to find blue ties for the groomsmen to match.  I googled 'ties that match Bill Levkoff horizon' and a website called bows-n-ties.com came up and gave some options for matching ties.  http://www.bows-n-ti...ses-horizon.php


                  Has anyone ordered anything off this website?  Were you happy with the product? Did it match perfectly?


                  Thanks in advance!
