    Thanks for the suggestion. That is where we found the ones we really like but we still need about a size or two larger than what they offer for my brother in the style we like. I did check online as well and it was the same sizes. We are going to go back and see if there's some regular khaki style that will work just as well if the other options fall through!

      FI finally got his suit! We found it at Click the image to open in full size.

      The GMs are wearing the same pants, shirt and tie.

        FI and I went to JoS a. Bank and ordered this suit today. Its on sale for $129 and came with flat front pants (FI is not a fan of pleats). His tie is green with thin white stripes and he is wearing a long sleeved white dress shirt.

        We bought a short sleeved linen shirt for the best man...but now I'm thinking that maybe they should wear the same thing (except for the tie)? Especially since the suit is inexpensive and probably around the same cost as tux rental (which is normal for most weddings).

        Thoughts anyone?

            FI will be wearing it as pictured with vest and a beautiful striped white/orange/blue tie...

            The groomsmen will be wearing the suit with paisley print blue and orange ties...like these:

            This is THE exact look I've been envisioning for my hubby! I love it!

                My FI and I went shopping for the GM and himself for the wedding over the weekend, we found a perfect look, all linen!! We found it at Tristan. They had short sleeve and long sleeve linen shirts and linen shorts and pants. Right now the only colors there were black, white and chocolate brown but we were told they are going to get colors in like orange, pink, blue and green.

                  Thank you for sharing :)

                  FI was all worried about it fitting too because we did the measurements ourselves as well. He kept saying I was doing it wrong but I went by the photos they have so *fingers crossed.*

                    FI ordered his suit from ebay from this seller italy5000. It's a Calvin Klein off white linen suit. They have other color and styles as well. It fits great all he needs to do is get the pants hemmed... Best thing is that we paid $150 (free shipping) and it got to us fast!

                    I just got a new camera, so I'll post pics ones I figure out how to use it :)
