- Wedding: July 2011
My fiance would like to invest in a good suit for our wedding, however we are running into a few issues.
First, his pant size is a size (or two larger) than his jacket size, and not for the normal reasons. He is a a rather fit 40R, and he likes slim modern cuts, however he has the thighs of a tri-athelete (mostly due to good genes, not excerise!) so while the waist in the pants fit him, they don’t through the thighs. Supposedly the tailor at Nordstroms can sew a small extra panel (from the cuff) on the inside seam of the pants (1/4 or an 1/8 of an inch). Has anyone done this? How were the results?
Second issue. He is thinking of a dark grey suit, and having his GM each wear a black suit they already own (we’d have to rent one for the junior groomsmen that is only 12). Any thoughts on how that will look? I’m a bit unsure so don’t hold back!
