    We are doing gray suits! Just picked them out yesterday at Moores. Got a great deal! As I mentioned before, if you bring in something to donate, you get a 50% off coupon. SO, here is a breakdown of what things cost:

    Suit 100 thread count. Nice and lightweight for the beach. Geoffrey Bean. Reg $449.

    White shirt. Can't remember the make. Reg $80

    Tie. Sean Jean. Reg $50.

    Pocketsquare. Reg $20. We are thinking about just doing a tie for my FI and pocket squares, no tie for the GMs

    Taxes in, just over $300! We got 5 suits for just over $1500, that's over $1500 in savings!

     




    A girlfriend was showing me pictures of her friend (who I don't know) wedding in Aruba last night and her Hubby wore a grey suit, white shirt and I think pink paisley tie, the boys wore the same but no jackets, it looked SOOOOO sharp!!!! I wanted to change our outfits but since they are sitting in my spare room I better not!!!!  It was a great look though I say go for it!!! They were a light grey and looked soo sharp!

      Hi Kathie,

      Just curious - I'm debating the pocket square + bout look. What are you doing for bouts?

        My FI is wearing a grey (the actual colour is called taupe but looks grey) linen blend suit from Le Chateau. It looks so nice with my magenta bridesmaid dresses. He's also wearing a purple/magenta paisley tie and white shirt. It looks soooo nice! When we bought it, it was on sale plus we got extra $50 off for spending at least $100.

        Here's the bridesmaid dresses, also from Le Chateau.

        I think grey is a very nice alternative to the usual tan suit.

          H i Manda, I think we'd do something like this for F bestman and maybe the same thing in white for him.

            I love the gray suits, I was veto'd though, he really wanted to wear the tan.

                  I think you hit the nail on the head for 1920's Harlem! The guys look really great. I love the turquoise ties! All sorts of blue are my favorite color/s, but I especially love turquoise (and light blue).

                   

                  I'll post my DH/groomsmen picture right after this post.

                  • My DH's outfit: Jacket by Jones New York at Men's Warehouse. Pants from Burlington Coat Factory. Shoes by Armani. His outfit totaled $165 (shoes not included as they were a gift from me). The hat he borrowed from his best man. His jacket was actually a light plaid as it had tan and blue lines to play into our wedding colors: turquoise and blue (see below).
                  • Grooms Men's outfits: Kohl's (pants by Ralph Lauren's Polo collection), JC Penny's (ties), and Burlington Coat Factory (suspenders, ties [Donald Trump Collection] and shirts). Their caps are by Kangol and we got it from a store in Newark that my DH talked the owner down to $15/each (they're worth $40+). Their entire outfits were $60/each. Their shoes were a gift from my MIL.
