    thanks!
    We are also going with this suit. When you purchase one suit you get the other for $100 which works out perfect for my FI and his groomsmen. He has 3 groomsmen so total each suit was really $150!! They will be wearing ivory linen shirts underneath which we purchase from Guayabera Shirt, The Guayabera Shirt Company
    The store is in my neighborhood and hands down they have some of the best linen anything in Miami! I still have to find ties for all of them.

      FI & I wanted casual so we found him a linen shirt and khaki linen pants...he loves it which I think is so important.

        i'm glad that so many are happy with this suit! i've been looking everywhere for a tie for my guy, too. i found the perfect one, but it was $190! that's what i get for having orange in my wedding!:) someone shared a link with me yesterday for some great-looking and affordable ties. i was really pleased with the huge selection - and the prices ($15 for a hand-woven silk tie!!). i ordered a great orange paisley tie yesterday!

          I just read this whole thread and I still dont know what I want my FI and Gm to wear! My bridesmaids dresses are coral but I think it might be too much to have the GM wear the same color.

            It is so hard to dress the guys- I wasn't sure what to put them in. There are some really good ideas here, thank you

              the tie i ordered from Ties | Mens Ties | Discount Neckties | Silk Neckties | Mens Silk Neckties | Long Ties | Bow Ties | Cufflinks | Pocket Squares | Ascots arrived today. i am so excited, and the orange paisley is absolutely perfect! i would definitely recommend them - especially for anyone who is having a difficult time finding what they need in stores.
              a handmade silk tie and fedex shipping for $23? yes please!

                    We found our ties at Pennys (of all places) after looking "forever". Colors are fushia and orange, so the groom has a stiped fushia and the BM and father of the bride have orange striped, both the same pattern. PERFECT

                      I just purchased my GM pants from Jos A Banks (60% off today) just plain front khakis and their shirts are linen from Islandimporter.com, they won't be wearing ties. FI was going to wear the same as groomsmen with maybe a jacket, but then I found a seersucker suit on Jos A Banks. We didn't want to spend $200 on his suit, but honestly, I think it will be nice to have him stand out from the groomsmen. So I'm hoping it fits well. :)
