        I measured B according the instructions on the website and then compared them to a jacket that he likes to wear and his khakis that he wears to work. The only thing that was a little off was in his shoulders. And he really isn't broad shouldered, so advice from a tailor probably would have been a good idea.



        LOL I didn't think people could actually find their nearly hidden customer gallery. But, yeah they are a vendor on the forum and asked me if they could use it. I am supposed to send them some better pics, but keep forgetting.

          I was running this suite by the guys in the wedding party and they swear up and down that they are going to sweat like crazy. Was your husband super hot and sweaty in this?

            Wow this is amazing, I am so happy to have stumbled upon this thread! I've been wondering what we are going to get FI to wear and this just might be the answer. I have dial up internet (I live in the country) and i actually took the time to go through all 26 pages of this thread. Took me forever, but I'm glad I did it.

            For those of you who ordered...I am wearing a lace, Ivory dress. I am leaning toward the English Beige suit, how do you think that will look? Also, did the majority of you order the classic comfort fit? I am leaning toward the two buttons on the front and sleeve and have no clue about the vents...what did ya'll do for those?

              We went with English Beige with classic comfort fit pants ..

              FI went with the 2 button suit and double vents .. he even got the ticket pocket .. which I thought was blah but his suit lol

              For the groomsmen .. they had to order the 2 button suit, but could customize whatever else they wanted ...

              They didn't go to the tailor beforehand to get measured .. they just ordered based on what size they normally wear, and I think some alterations had to be done ..

                DH was comfortable in the suit and sweated a little bit since it was 90% humidity. But that's going to happen regardless of what you are wearing. The $99 suit is a linen cotten blend that breathes, is really light weight and isn't as wrinkly as pure linen. The jacket is lined, but we didn't get the pants lined. I can't imagine anything wedding-like that would be any cooler than linen pants. Besides, it's your wedding and the guys have to wear what you tell them to

                    msmoodyr, how do you think the English beige would look with an ivory dress? Or should I go with the Beige (like Autumns hubby) I want a bit of contrast but not a lot.
                    Im so excited about these suits!! Almost as much as my own dress. lol. I asked FI if he would let me order a custom suit from India and he said "if thats what you want me to wear, that's what I will wear!"

                    We are doing a TTD session as well the day after the wedding. Not sure about getting this suit wet. I am thinking about getting him a pair of those cheap linen/cotten pants from Old Navy to wear for that. What do you guys think?
