    Specifically the Monaco Suit or the Silk Blend Grooms Outfit? If so, did they look nice and were they made well, or were they cheesy? They are comparable in price to Jcrew/BR/Men's Warehouse, vs. getting a linen suit made at Nordstroms, etc. which are $1000+, which is worth the investment if it were black, but for a light linen suit, I don't think so?

          We got our GM's pants there, the khaki linen drawstrings. Very easy to work with, fast shipping, etc. Their catalogue - and website - has really grown since last year. The suit looks great and I'm sure the quality is good, we were very pleased with the pants.

              Im thinking of ordering the khaki drawstrings from there... did they look see through? Can you imagine? LOL (thinking of FI in them)

                Nope, they aren't see-through at all...lol They are very lightweight though which is a must in the heat, and they can wear them again...my GMs do (shirts too).

                I got a few inquiries so here are some pics..I blocked out the faces because I don't know if my friends want their pics on a forum..haha

                  Hey,

                  Just FYI I was a groomsman at my buddy's wedding very recently and we had a terrible experience with Island Importers.

                  Granted we were placing a last minute order for clothes, but they told us they could drop ship the items to us. We thought, oh great, this way we can just sit back and wait for the clothes and have some drinks - rather than going to the near-by malls to get clothes.

                  Long story short, they sent us two confirmation emails, but the tracking numbers were both incorrect (didnt learn until several phone calls to UPS - Fun!). The items never got there on Saturday and we ended up doing last minute shopping anyways.

                  Just really bad communication and afterwards they have been REALLY rude to me when I have explained what happened.

                  I tried to look em up in the BBB, but they are not in there. I think they are a one or two person shop out of a garage.

                  Not to say everyone would have this experience, but I figured I would share!!

                  Thanks

                    Holy CRAP, I need to go back and check them out again. I had planned to get B's clothes there, but just bookmarked the page last year and haven't been back. Looks like they really have grown! I haven't heard anything but good things about them....I know they come highly recommended for their customer service.
