    If you are considering Linen suits check out the linen suit collection from studio suits, they are about $100...our GM are all happy as that is cheaper than renting tux!

      LOL! This would be awesome for TTD

        Everyone looks sharp indeed! I love the starfish lapels you made

          Thanks!

           

          The starfish lapels were very  easy to make. We just hot glued starfish onto earring and pin mounts.

                Just got outfits for the guys. I am glad we got it done early because the woman that worked at Macy's said they are pulling all the summer clothes (we wanted linen) for fall very soon!

                 

                 

                Groom is wearing a Perry Ellis light tan (khaki color) linen suit with white lightweight dress shirt. I thought it was the perfect mix of casual and dressy :)

                 

                (this without the vest and I think the color we got is a little darker)

                 

                 

                Groomsmen are a little more casual...with Banana Republic linen khaki colored pants (we would have got the same Perry Ellis pants but they didn't have any long enough for some of the guys, not even to order!) and a casual white shirt with rolled sleeves. 

                 

                (one of the left)

                Everything we got was on sale (at Macys and Banana Republic) because of the season change. Paid $30-$40 each for both pants and the suit jacket was a little more (around $100) but he will definitely wear it again!

                Love the starfish lapel!! Starfish is my theme and I had planned on doing this for the groomsmen instead of a boutonniere!!
