Or men, in this case. Just teasing, guys!
As I mentioned in my "wedding week recap" the other day, Justin and I went to Mens Wearhouse recently and picked out his tuxedo ensemble. However, we took the tie and shoes off the package, because we have other plans for those . . . See below for the whole ensemble, from the shirt out & down!
Point collar shirt - will be in ivory, but this photo is of a white shirt,
because that's all they had on the website!
A seriously awesome tie from Cyberoptix. It's called "Topographical Error" and it shows "
Herringbone print vest, in silver. It's a dark silver, which is why we picked it.
No super-shiny 80s vests here, thanks!
A classic Calvin Klein two-button jacket in a lightweight wool
And the piece de resistance - good old Chuck Taylors in royal blue. Some brides I've seen around the blogosphere are apparently appalled at the idea of letting the groom and groomsmen wear chucks for the wedding, but to be honest, I think this was my idea when we decided on it months ago.
So, in the end, I think it's a nice mix of traditional stuff - tux, shirt, vest - and funky stuff - tie, chucks. Exactly the way we like it.
