My groom got his suit custom-made as well, so his groomsmen won’t be matching.  I think it’ll be nice and will mirror that my BMs won’t match me either.

my husband is a body builder by hobby so we feel your pain with trying to locate a well-fitted tux. His shoulders measure 48 inches and his waist is about 32– its a real hoot shopping with him!

We went with a charcoal, slim tux rental that was also taken in at the waist to fit him on our wedding day, the groomsmen just had standard black tuxes

Yep, My man is Gym rat as well and has an athletic body. He wanted to wear a grey Suite and have his GM in Black. Here is a pic.

@kotonikak:  You don’t have to be matchy matchy. IMO The black suit with a wine colored tie would look soooooo goood.

@kotonikak:  we are family friends with the guy who owns the tux shop and he said that he always tacks and pins and “pseudo alters” the jackets etc. to make sure they fit well when they head out the door

i’m afraid to buy anything custom made because he keeps growing (not a bad thing!) but i’d hate to throw roughly $500 down the drain when his suit doesn’t fit next year!

we’ve been sticking to vest sets and forgoing the jacket for more formal events since he has room to breathe and they can taper in easier!

My husband wore a new grey suit and we had the men wear black suites they already owned and then we supplied them with shits and ties, they looked great!

My fiance and groosmen aren’t going to be wearing the same suits as the groomsmen already have dark suits which they’ll be wearing. My fiance doesn’t have any suits that fit him, so we’ll be getting him a new dark suit.
