@VeeVee25:  DH wore charcoal, the GM wore black– DH wanted to wear our wedding color as his vest so the best way to distinguis was to put him in a different colored tux. I think it will totally work for you!

@VeeVee25:  Black next to navy isn’t teh best look, and black suits aren’t that good in general.  A different suit on the groom would be fine, but I would suggest charcoal.

Also, test out your ties with a navy suit before a final decision – navy ties with navy suits can look good, but it’s one of those things that either works great, or doesn’t work at all.  The striped one sounds like it will work.

Odd vests are not a good idea – especially with suits.  At east with “Tuxedos” it’s something people do, even if it’s not actually correct.  Vests are made of the same material as the suit.  Doing an odd vest is very difficult, and best left to men that are very experienced, and serious, dressers.

I would consider a shade of gray for your FI. Depending on his complexion/hair color, a light or dark gray could look great next to navy.

@VeeVee25:  It’s hard to know exactly what you are asking as the title of your post mentions the Groom’s Tux, but after that you refer to suits.

Are the men wearing tuxedos or suits?

Either way they will look much better wearing the vest the matches the tuxedo or suit. You can bring in color with their ties (patterned not solid) and/or boutonnieres.
