I’m back with another delimma; Groomsmen Attire.
Here’s are my problem(s).
I have a groom, a best man, and two groomsmen. The two groomsmen are my future stepsons. One is 14 and wears a 30×30, so he’s fine. However, my other stepson is 12 and he’s 25×25, too small for adult sizes, yet I have been unable to find anything in his size that will match everyone else.
I want my groom to wear light khaki pants, a white shirt, and light khaki vest and possible a blush tie. I considered buying separates while they were on sale. However, the only thing that I fell in love with is a Calvin Klein Tan Cotton suit at Macy’s. They have the vest in the right size but not the pants. So that’s out. I found an “okay” option at JCPenney’s. The only thing is that the back of the vest is patterned/textures and I’m not very fond of it.
The best man and older stepson, will not wear vest or ties. Just pants and button down. We have two options; buy the same pants as the groom and still not have anything for my youger stepson. Or buy a very nice pair of light Dockers and still not have anything for the younger stepson.
The only solutions I can come up with are renting from a bridal shop in my town that uses Jim’s Formal Wear; Everyone would match and we’d have something for the little one.
Lord West Slim Cut Havana Tan:
A little dark for my taste; and Im not crazy about the yellowy undertone.
… Or we have mismatched groomsmen.
Where can I find the light tan/khaki suit separates with a vest and the back of the vest isn’t hideous? I’ve looked EVERYWHERE with no luck.
Is it okay if my groomsmen don’t match the groom exactly?
What should I do about my younger stepson matching the other two groomsmen?
Should I just suck it up and rent even though I’m not crazy about the color?
Should I give up on the vest for my groom?
This has seriously consumed the last three days. Im defeated and almost in tears.
Things to consider:
I’m paying for everything so price is a factor. Black and gray are out of the question.
Can anyone help me? Suggestions? Insights?
