    I personally would go with the black ties.  It’d make the buttons on the vest stand out.    You can always bring color to the groomsmen with coral boutonnieres.

    As much as I do like the stipped tie, and it does match the dresses, I think a solid black tie would look better. It would just be more striking and as a previous poster said, it would make the black buttons stand out. I think a solid tie that matches the dresses would be nice too, but so not worth the time to find one (I know how hard that can be!) when a solid black tie would also look quite nice.

    Black looks good … check out the tiebar online may find something you like. Get his pants pressed before the wedding too 😛

    Either the black or the striped looks good.  Solid coral (1) just tends to look wishy washy on white guys (looks great on black guys!), (2) is too matchy-matchy looking, because it’s an unusual tie colour, and (3) doesn’t reawith pop on the mid grey tone on tone suit you’ve picked out (wold look better against solid charcoal).

    Also, if that vest is for the same man who’s wearing it in the pic, it needs alteration.  Not much, just needs a bit of shape to it.  Even if it’s going to have the jacket over it, I’d still take it to someone.

    The striped tie you chose doesn’t have  enough color for me with all the grey in the 5 button vest. You see so little of the tie that i would choose something more colorful, or stick with black.

    If you choose a patterned tie, the coral/peach/salmon doesn’t have to be an exact match.

    @julies1949:  Excellent point about matching not needing to be exact!

    @Spanglbee:  I would definitely go with black!  The coral tie/coral dress looks way too matchy-matchy for my taste.

    @Spanglbee:  As long as it’s self-tied (which it appears to be) I love it.

    @Spanglbee:  I love the bowtie. So cool! I also love the idea of a bridesman.
