    The Le Chateau suits have a very narrow fit and generally fit on the small side. If your FI and his GM's are built like linbackers I would suggest looking somwhere else. They are made primarily for "smaller" guys who do not have broad shoulders. I actually used to work at one and it was a constant problem as most men couldn't fit into the jackets properly and didn't want to go up in sizing just to have everything else taken in. Unfortunately, they are not the best options out there! Also keep in mind that linen suits wrinkle very easily incase this is something you may not want in your pictures! Tommy Bahama has some other options available as well and their sizing is more true to form when compared to Le Chateau. Also Tommy Hilfiger used to have a linen suit available if you haven't look there yet.

        I had my FI try on the linen suits at Le Chateau and hated how they fit!! We then ended up going to International Clothiers...a store I would have never of gone in...anyways we got an AMAZING deal on my FI linen suit!!!  They had a sale on Linen pants and Shirt...Buy both and pay only $25.00 each piece...So, we ended up getting my FI linen outfit for only $52.00 and it fit perfect (he's built as well...lol) !! Sweet deal...we got the best man his outfit too:)

          Thanks for the tip! I just did a google search and there's an International Clothiers here in Ottawa. Never heard of it! I will check it out this weekend! Did they have a lot of selection? We want grey.

                  There is always the Online $99 suit deal. we are debating it cause Garett is huge too! But we will probably just go with a linen T-Shirt and Pant I already bought from Old Navy! Guys are so cheap to buy for! I wish it was that easy and inexpensive for me!

                      Just an FYI if anyone is looking for tan colored dress pants there is currently a great pair available at Costco for $16.99. The guys say they fit pretty well and for that price it really doesn't matter if they only wear them once. Old Navy also has some great stuff in at the moment if anyone needs some alternatives.
