Right now I’m having a hard time trying to figure out which attire would be best for my groomsmen. I opted to have them wear plain black suits but trying to figure out if they will all match is my problem.
Reason why i decided to go with a suit was because I didnt like any of the Grey Tux’s that are currently out right now…
I just recently bought my wedding suit, Grey E. Zegna… its with subtle stripes. Do you think it would be not so formal for me to wear the suit and just tell my groomsmen to rent tuxes, so they all match each other?
or should i keep my same plan and just have them wear all black suits, black shoes and cuff linked dress shirts?
what do you think?

I think it might look strange to have the groom in a suit and the groomsmen in tuxes. I would just have them wear a black suit. It’s okay if they look a little different, that’s the style lately anyway.

the groom should set the standard for the grooms men, if he isnt wearing a tux then they shouldnt either

@jlstatus: My FI is wearing a really nice dark grey suit with subtle stripes that we’re buying ourselves, and we’re having our GM’s in the Savoy grey tux without the vest.. the tuxes look a bit better than the rental suits I thought , and this way the GM’s dont have to shell out for a suit and my FI gets to look sharp too! I’m going to buy them all striped ties ..
I say as long as you accessorize everything well no ones going to notice, its not like you’re going to look shabby in a nice suit! Go for it!
